HYALURONIC ACID DERMAL FILLERS
Did you know that many visible signs of ageing can be traced back to volume loss? As facial tissues thin out, lines become etched around the nose and mouth and cheeks look a little hollow.
Dermal fillers can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases or enhance facial contours.
What are the benefits of dermal fillers?
Little to no downtime
Results last 6 months to 2 years or longer, depending on the product & treatment
Benefits of using HA dermal filler:
A significant advantage of using hyaluronic acid fillings is the immediate effect in the form of shallowing the folds, enlarging the lips or adding volume to the areas that need it.
In addition, hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible and safe substance that has been used in medicine and cosmetics for a long time. Thanks to this, its impact on health has been thoroughly researched.
Although, at first glance, gradual dissolution by the body may seem as a disadvantage, it is in fact an advantage. With time, the skin ages, sags and, after years, the implant, which was placed once, may not fit any more, whereas the hyaluronic acid may actually be necessary for another area. Therefore, thanks to biodegradability, this acid has gained an advantage over permanent implants. Its location can be monitored on an ongoing basis and administered into places that currently require it.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural polysaccharide found in all organisms and has the same chemical structure in bacteria and mammals. It is a component of the dermal cell-matrix and has very good water-binding properties. There is a sufficient amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin of young people, but with age, it begins to decline, which makes the skin lose its elasticity and so wrinkles appear.
In medicine, its properties are used in orthopaedics, ophthalmology, proctology, otolaryngology and gynaecology. This proves that it is a safe substance.
Mechanism of action
Due to cross-linking, hyaluronic acid has the form of a gel, which, when injected into selected areas, increases its volume. This allows for the shallowing of wrinkles, cavities and furrows, filling and enlargement of the lips and superstructure in bone points, which nicely outlines the contour of the face.
Can hyaluronic acid cause allergies?
Due to the fact that hyaluronic acid has an identical structure in all mammals and bacteria, it would seem that its use is completely free from the risk of allergies. A one hundred percent biocompatible substance should not induce it at all. It turns out, however, that after using hyaluronic acid filling, allergic reactions occasionally occur. How to explain it? There may be several reasons why an allergy to a hyaluronic acid preparation appears.
Allergy to lidocaine contained in the hyaluronic acid preparation.
Allergy to the cross-linking agent present in the preparation.
Allergy to donor proteins after insufficient purification of hyaluronic acid and other contaminants of the preparation (high risk occurs in cheap, untested acids).
