VOLUME REPLACEMENT. BIOPLASTY
Over the years, not only wrinkles appear, the skin becomes thinner, elasticity is lost and there is a loss of Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid and Elastin. There is a marked loss of volume with changes in the facial bone structure and soft tissues. The youthful “triangle” consisting of high cheekbones and a small chin, results in a thick-skinned appearance with flat cheekbones and a “double chin.”
One of the most used fillers, Hyaluronic Acid, improves skin hydration, promotes collagen synthesis and normalizes the function of the dermis. It is crucial in the structural integrity of the collagen network, providing structural support and nutrients.
Depending on the characteristics and needs of the patient, different types of hyaluronic acid are used, varying its molecular weight and cross-linking. It will be different in the case that you need more bio-restructuring or more lifting effect or both combined.
Another widely used filling material is Calcium Hydroxyapatite, present in our body and designed to restore facial volumes and natural contours by stimulating the generation and deposit of natural collagen, the physiological filling of soft tissue. Clinical results are evident for up to 1 year or more, depending on the volume injected, the characteristics of the skin and the age of the patient.
Despite being the second most widely used treatment, dermal fillers still cause some skepticism in some patients. This is due to reports on television, press, etc., unfavorable of “trout” faces or “duck” mouths, or in general, highly artificial faces.
Filling materials have evolved favorably since that first indication, which was “filling”, now it is possible to achieve facial remodeling and recovery of lost contours, always putting yourself in the hands of expert doctors.
In order to obtain natural and remarkable results, I recommend a combination of treatments including dermal fillers, botulinum toxin, dermal treatments and / or dermocosmetics, to obtain synergistic effects with the combination of these treatments.
How long is the session?
The session generally lasts 30 to 40 minutes. The effects begin to be visible immediately after the injection, reaching optimal results approximately one month in HA or 3 months in the case of CH.
What happens if I take any medication? Inform your doctor before treatment if you take any medication, even if it is not a medication. Taking painkillers such as Aspirin and some vitamins can cause bruising.
It is painful?
In general no. If the doctor considers it appropriate, a small amount of topical anesthetic will be previously applied to minimize any discomfort at the time of injection.
Can I return to normal activity after treatment with Facial Fillers?
Yes. Some patients experience inflammation, redness or bruising after injection, which generally disappears after treatment. This allows you to return to daily activity almost immediately.
There is a new concept in facial Bioremodeling, Profhilo, a Hyaluronic Acid that combines
- Moisturizing and stimulating action, linked to the low molecular weight — HYDRO (hydration).
- Scaffold action (support) in the dermis, linked to the high molecular weight — LIFT (tension).
The remodeling of skin laxity is obtained thanks to the unique characteristics of Profhilo in just 2 sessions, with a one-month interval, using only 5 injection sites per half-face. These 5 points individualize 5 areas of the face where there is a well-structured lymphatic capillary network that allows maximizing the diffusion of the product in the malar and submalar areas. Depending on the level of aging, the protocol will be carried out on the patient.
As we age, our lip begins to lose color, fine lines begin to appear around it, and the lip becomes thinner and smaller. This is because collagen production begins to decline with age. The gradual degradation of the lip over time plays an essential role in the aging process.
It is possible to recover fullness, sensuality and youthfulness of the lips with treatments in a natural way if you know the lip injections cost. It is made with filling materials, specifically with hyaluronic acid, which manage to regain their initial shape and redefine the edges that had lost definition.
Reasons to choose a natural lip filler:
- Safe treatment
- Treatment indicated to treat oral commissures and smoker’s lines.
- Definition of Cupid’s Bow
- More voluptuous, natural and sensual lips
- Different techniques are used to augment a lip, depending on where the volume is required. To improve the “barcode”, a lip resurfacing can be done by reshaping the vermilion of the lip, to achieve a more youthful and attractive appearance.
- The Cupid’s Bow and the upper lip philtrum ridges can be defined and thus regain their original youth.
- Initially, the different points to be treated and the possible treatment options are evaluated. Once the decision is made, a topical anesthetic is applied before the procedure. During treatment, the results will be reviewed and before and after photographs will be taken.
- The treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes. Once completed, the lips are massaged with an anti-inflammatory ointment and some post-treatment advice will be given.
- A safe and non-permanent hyaluronic acid filler is used for a natural lip augmentation that will last approximately 6 to 12 months in the body.
- Combination with other treatments
- Nasolabial folds, oral commissures and marionette lines: Generally the perioral areas are the cause of a sad and aged appearance. Hyaluronic acid filler is also used to reverse an inverted smile, nasolabial fold or puppet line.
- Post treatment
- Inflammation appears after treatment and touching or applying any make-up should be avoided for 24-48 hours after treatment. You will be given the guidelines for this.
- Side effects and complications
- Like any injected treatment, bruising and redness may appear that can be camouflaged with makeup. There may be inflammation during the first days and it is recommended not to perform these treatments near an important event.
- Some other more serious complications, such as hypersensitivity reactions, infections, and granulomas, can occur, although they appear very rarely.
