New items, new uses and many advantages are provided by the new injectable materials that can effectively erase the signs of time from the face in the easiest way, achieving a goal that previously only lifting could achieve. Want to learn more? Definitely yes!
It is known that the application of fillers has brought ups and downs in plastic surgery. Hyaluronic acid is used in injectable form to fill superficial but also deeper wrinkles on the face or to give volume to the lips, cheekbones and sunken cheeks. Thus covering the gaps left by time. Nevertheless, the developments do not stop, on the contrary, they aim at the best and safest possible results.
One of the most popular fillers is hyaluronic acid which is a completely safe injectable material that has been used for at least the last 15 years. It is friendly to human skin, since it is a normal component of our body, and does not cause allergies. But what has changed in terms of its use in the field of anti-aging?
From topical use to mesotherapy
The action of hyaluronic acid is no longer limited to filling wrinkles locally, since it finds other applications. One of them is mesotherapy, which is applied to the whole face to give it radiance, as well as hydration from within. In other words, hyaluronic acid can be applied all over the face with small needles, ensuring an excellent result of rejuvenation and radiance.
It can also be applied in cases where we want to give volume to the lips, cheekbones or cheeks – the cheeks (that part of the face that gives it an oval shape). Points from which the tumor is usually lost during the aging process, thus emptying the face. By placing the hyaluronic acid in the appropriate places, we emphasize the cheekbones and the result looks more natural.
Different types for different applications
In addition to placing the material in the appropriate places to achieve the maximum possible result, the application of the appropriate type of hyaluronic acid in each area by the specialist is of great importance. Thus, a thinner material will be used on the surface layers of the skin, while a thicker material will be used for expression wrinkles.
Depending on the type, hyaluronic acid can be applied to various parts of the face to:
→Restores facial volume, including cheeks, cheekbones and chin (duration 18 – 24 months).
→Improves the folds on the cheeks, chin, lower third of the face and nasolabial folds while it is suitable for filling deep impressions (duration up to 15 months).
→Improve the areas around the lips, mouth and eyes, as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines (duration up to 12 months).
New indication for the eyes
One of the new types of hyaluronic acid fillers can be used in the area around the eyes and especially in the much-discussed and difficult area called Tear Trough!
The results are very good and the infusion process is relatively simple. However, very good knowledge of the anatomy of the area is required as well as careful planning before the infusion by the doctor.
Compared to the past when the application of injectable fillers required repetition even twice a year or at least every twelve months, extending the repetition period of new fillers to 15 or 18 months is definitely considered another advantage while in some cases the duration of the aesthetic effect can last even two years.
And without pain!
And of course we keep the best for last! So know that the new advanced generation of implants has a built-in local anesthetic (lydocaine) with the result that the feeling of pain is zero!
