What are dermal fillers or what is 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.
Creation of ‘Smoking Wrinkles’?
Smoking wrinkles are wrinkles that occur around the mouth. The skin above the upper lip is very thin and has very little supporting subcutaneous adipose tissue. The lack of support and excessive use of muscles leads to premature wrinkles around the mouth and to the creation of “smoking wrinkles”.
What is the “smoking wrinkles” treatment?
After a detailed review and analysis of a face we begin with cleaning the face, followed by applying anesthetic cream, letting it absorb and starts to work, only then we injected filler to the desired location finishing off with a gentle massage to achieve a uniformly smooth surface.
Is the treatment painful and how long does it last?
Before the treatment we apply 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.
What can you expect after the dermal filler treatment?
After the treatment you can expect the disappearance of smoking wrinkles. Skin around lips is toned and appears younger, healthier and more attractive.
Are there side effects?
Side effects, even if they occur, are very rare. Slight redness can appear at the site of application and sensation of tightening but it quickly disappears. There may be swelling and bruising, which also disappear after 2-3 days. We must stress that the frequency of hypersensitive reaction is extremely rare: only 1 hypersensitivity response was recorded in 25 000 treatments.
