REPLACEMENT TREATMENT WITH HYALURONIC ACID
The replacement treatment is a non-surgical procedure that softens some wrinkles and facial indentations. This simple procedure that is carried out in a consulting room consists in injecting a filler substance into the skin; in other words, the lost tissue is replaced. By means of this technique, we give the lower cutaneous layer body and a smoother appearance is achieved.
During the early years of the century, a variety of synthetic injectable materials were tested until some researches carried out in the Stanford University gave as a result the idea of an implant made of a natural, injectable substance. Further and more extensive researches gave as a result a product known as implant of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is similar to our collagen and that is well accepted by the body. This material is administered by a doctor who is specially trained in the procedure known as filler substances.
IN WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT WITH HYALURONIC ACID CONSIST?
Your doctor injects small quantities of hyaluronic acid into the most superficial skin layers, in one or two sessions depending on the damage of the skin.
Just as our collagen, this material functions as a frame in which the cells that produce collagen can be reactivated. The doctor can effectively fill in most of the face wrinkles and complement the body collagen by means of this technique.
WHICH AGING SKIN FLAWS CAN BE TREATED WITH HYALURONIC ACID?
The injection is particularly effective when it is used to soften wrinkles caused by smiling and knitting the brow, as well as the so-called crow’s feet and the small vertical wrinkles that appear around the mouth. It is also applied to give lips volume and improve the appearance of bony hands in order to achieve a younger look.
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT HYALURONIC ACID MIGHT NOT BE USEFUL FOR SOME AGING SKIN PROBLEMS
Flaccid skin caused by a tissue excess as well as minuscule superficial wrinkles like the ones that frequently appear below the eyes do not improve to 100% with the treatment.
IS THE TREATMENT WITH HYALURONIC ACID PRESCRIBED TO ALL PEOPLE?
Yes, the doctor must draw up your medical history as well as explain you the benefits and limitations of the hyaluronic acid treatment.
IS THE IMPROVEMENT ACHIEVED PERMANENT?
Unfortunately, hyaluronic acid is subject to the same biochemical and mechanical changes that weakened the own natural collagen. Therefore, as time goes by, the improvements achieved will gradually disappear; however, by means of simple touch-up treatments (that generally require less material in comparison with the original treatment), the improvements can be maintained at an optimum level and in this way, a long-term solution for some aging skin problems can be provided.
FOR HOW LONG HAS THIS PRODUCT BEEN USED BY DOCTORS?
HYALURONIC ACID was first used to treat patients in the 90s. Since then, thousands of people have been treated with such material.
DOES THE TREATMENT WITH HYALURONIC ACID REEPLACE SURGERY?
No, surgery can be an ideal treatment for people with excess face skin and who need a total skin RESTORATION. Nevertheless, hyaluronic acid is compatible with some surgical treatments, for it can restore some flaws that do not improve with surgery. The surgery results can improve even more by injecting this substance inside the skin in order to soften some forehead wrinkles as well as wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HYALURONIC ACID AND INJECTABLE SILICONES?
Both materials are completely different. On the one hand, silicones are synthetic and it is known that they can move in a different direction from the injection place causing permanent undesirable skin changes. On the other hand, hyaluronic acid is produced in a laboratory and it retains its natural composition; besides, IT DOES NOT REPRESENT A RISK TO THE PATIENT.
