Facial Filling with non-animal HYALURONIC ACID aims to fill facial wrinkles, natural creases and lips (senile and short). It is made of biodegradable and biocompatible material (absorbed by the body and that doesn’t cause any allergic reactions) and it’s part of the skin structure of all animals.
However, so that there is no species incompatibility, modern biotechnology industry produces the product in a lab through genetically transformed bacteria.
Recently, it was approved for cosmetic use by the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) in the USA, but it has been used in many European countries (Sweden, France, Italy, Spain) for over 10 years.
The amount of the product to be inserted varies from patient to patient, and only the doctor can tell the necessary amount for each case. In average, 1,2ml of the product is used per treatment, which is the content of the box of the product. It is for exclusive use for the patient, and it cannot be shared with other people. The need and recommendation for small retouches depends on the doctor’s evaluation.
The applications are made in the office, with topical anesthesia (anesthetic cream) without the need for submission in the hospital. The application produces a small swelling and redness in the area, which faces after 24-48 hours.
The product is injected through the skin, using syringe and needles previously sterilized; the effect occurs immediately, and the volume that was applied to provide the appropriate result will be determined by the doctor.
Hyaluronic Acid is naturally reabsorbed by the body, and its effect lasts about a year. After this time, you might submit to other applications if you want to keep the results. It’s necessary to make it clear that the fillings don’t substitute plastic surgery, but can offer an improvement on the facial aspect, concealing small wrinkles.
