What are dermal fillers or as Hyaluronic acid?
Dermal filler or hyaluronic fillers are synonyms i.e. fillers we use to compensate for the lost volume of the skin (skin folds and wrinkles), for shaping the contours of the face, hydration and skin rejuvenation and non-surgical correction of the scars. Over the years, due to the aging process, together with collagen and elastin, body loses its ability to produce hyaluronic acid and the skin begins to lose its’ moisture, elasticity, strength and volume, which leads to dehydration of the skin and formation of wrinkles.
What are the advantages of dermal fillers?
Hyaluronic dermal fillers have in recent years become the gold standard for filling facial wrinkles. Here, at the Centre for Aesthetic Medicine Medikol, we use only luxury high quality dermal fillers. They are biocompatible products; i.e. they biologically biodegrade in your body in a way that is natural and safe and disappear from your body when it is fully absorbed. The advantage of modern fillers is that they aren’t permanent and it is not necessary to test for allergies because they are not of animal origin unlike collagen filler which are derived from animal collagen.
What causes cheeks to lose volume?
Aging process leads to several changes in the supporting structures of the face. loss of bone mass of middle part of the face is present and also lowering of the skin and subcutaneous adipose tissue (due to the effect of gravity). Also, due to the aging atrophy of subcutaneous adipose tissue occurs and the skin loses its elasticity and all above stated leads to degenerative changes in the skin and skin no longer has a high quality. All these changes affect the reduction of the volume of the cheeks and further worsen already aged appearance of the face. However, a loss of cheeks volume can be brought up by a weight loss or even at/after some diseases.
After a detailed examination and analysis of face we begin with cleaning the face and applying anesthetic cream. We leave anesthetic cream to take effect then the filler is injected at several places to get the fullness of the face followed by a gentle massage to achieve a uniformly smooth surface. Never forgetting that the expression of cheekbones is different in men and women, and also taking care that we don’t get appearance of a flattened face.
What are the results of dermal fillers treatment?
After the treatment cheeks no longer look “gaunt and exhausted”. Face gets much softer and younger appearance of and the skin is toned and healthy.
Is the treatment painful and how long does it last?
We start the treatment with applying anesthetic cream so that the treatment is completely painless. The treatment itself lasts for approximately 10-15 minutes and results can be seen immediately afterwards. After the treatment our clients returns to their everyday life. Due to the extreme brevity of the treatment and its painlessness, Filler treatments are also called “lunch-time” treatments because they can be done during lunch break.
Are there side effects?
Side effects are very rare. If they occur it is usually after the application of fillers; also slight redness may appear at the site of application followed by sensation of tightness but it quickly disappears. There may be swelling and bruising, which also disappear after several days.
