Fillers are active agents that are used in aesthetic medicine in the skin. As the name suggests, injecting the substance can fill out sagging, sunken or uneven skin. The most common treatments with fillers are to make the skin appear rejuvenated. The traditional procedure is treating wrinkles. But there are various fillers that are suitable for other treatment methods.
Fillers for treating wrinkles
Even though they are a natural sign of ageing, wrinkles are an unwelcome feature. Those who do not want to simply live with wrinkles or sagging skin now have a huge variety of methods available for effectively rejuvenating the skin. However, many active agents that are applied externally do not always give a satisfactory result.
The wrinkle treatment with fillers at the Hautmedizin Bad Soden is injected into the tissue. We can inject biological preparations such as hyaluronic acid to smooth out unattractive wrinkles, in particular frown lines, wrinkles in the corner of the mouth or the nasolabial fold, by plumping them up. Another benefit of hyaluronic acid is its long-term stability. The active agent is a part of and is produced by the human body and also stimulates collagen production. This gives the tissue a smoothing effect that develops gradually and lasts for up to 18 months.
In contrast to surgical wrinkle treatments, there is no prolonged downtime after hyaluronic acid injections. Patients can go back to work and exercise the next day. The procedure itself only takes around 15-30 minutes.
Contouring the face
In addition to treating wrinkles, hyaluronic acid injections can also be used to shape and contour the face. Depending on their age, people can develop slight (or even severe) unevenness on the face that they find unattractive or bothersome. In order to achieve a lifting or partial lifting effect, we inject the hyaluronic acid (or filler made of calcium hydroxyapatite) directly into the area of tissue to be treated. This allows for cheekbones to be contoured or can even out a crooked nasal bridge. Plumping up and shaping the upper and lower lips are also very popular.
Biorevitalisation thanks to hyaluronic acid
As we get older, the natural production of hyaluronic acid in the body decreases. This results in the skin losing a part of its elasticity and it begins to sag. In order to balance out this loss and to help the skin appear younger, we inject noncross-linked hyaluronic acid into the upper layer of the skin. This binds water and stimulates the production of collagen, which smooths out the tissue.
