Filler as an effective anti-aging treatment
Who does not know this? You put cream on the skin, pamper it with the best Peelings and gives it the attention it deserves as our external representative. And yet increasingly more Wrinkles. Even anti-wrinkle creams can no longer help. Because once a wrinkle is there, it is noticeable anew every day. So what can be done without resorting directly to surgical intervention? The answer is: Filler.
Fillers are a great way to visibly tighten the skin. By filling the wrinkles, skin tightening is achieved, giving everyone a fresh and younger look. Different fillers are used to achieve the best possible result. Which of the fillers is chosen depends on the type and severity of the wrinkles, as well as the patient’s tolerance and preference.
During the treatment, the fillers are injected into the skin with fine needles. The filler is injected into the skin at the area to be treated at small intervals with the help of small needle punctures. This form of treatment is not very painful and can be performed in a relatively short time.
The good thing is: the treatment results are visible immediately after the therapy, do not leave any scars and you can continue your everyday life directly. The various fillers and treatment methods differ in major and minor details. Here you can read which treatment methods are offered and find out which one suits you best.
Collagen filler for tone
Collagen and elastin are natural components of the skin whose cell division takes place in the course of the so-called Age no longer occurs as frequently. The connective tissue cells collagen, which ensures the stability of the skin, and elastin, which promotes the elasticity of the skin, lose tone and elasticity due to reduced regeneration, resulting in wrinkles.
One way to regain stability lies in the possibility of therapy in which collagen is specifically increased. By injecting collagen, the skin is injected with the filler, thus counteracting the natural aging process.
Poly-lactic acid filler for enhanced regeneration
Lactic acid is a substance naturally produced during the breakdown of carbohydrates and muscle metabolism. In this respect, the reaction and tolerance in patients is very high. In this case, since it is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, it is broken down over a period of time.
Unlike the other fillers, poly-L-lactic acid is so well broken down by the body that treatments must be performed at a higher frequency.
Poly-L-lactic acid is popular in aesthetic medicine because it stimulates collagen formation in the skin, making it firmer. The advantage is that its use not only injects wrinkles, but also stimulates the regeneration of the skin through the body’s own processes.
Hyaluronic acid filler for collagen incompatibility
The older we get, the less collagen and elastin are naturally produced by our bodies as cells lose their ability to produce as much of the rejuvenating component. As a result, the skin becomes drier, thinner and loses its ability to heal itself. At birth we have a large proportion Hyaluronic acid in our body, which decreases the older we get.
This results in less support for the skin and the appearance of wrinkles. To counter this natural loss of hyaluronic acid, hyaluronic acid gel can be used to restore moisture and firmness to the skin. By using the gel, not only is the lost moisture returned to the skin, but the volume is also replenished.
The hyaluronic acid gel is especially suitable for those who cannot tolerate collagen. The gel used in this treatment is very well tolerated and does not cause allergic reactions, as its structure corresponds to the molecular structure of human connective tissue.
Lipofilling – filler through redistribution
Lipofilling, also called autologous fat padding, is a gentle method of filling wrinkles. It is well tolerated because only the patient’s own body fat is used. This is taken from areas of the body where removal would not be harmful or from areas where unloved fat deposits have accumulated.
As with all endogenous materials, autologous fat is broken down by the body after a certain period of time, which means that the therapy must be repeated after a few months in order to continue to reline the wrinkles. However, the clear advantage is that this form of preparation does not entail any long-term consequences.
Mesotherapy – the holistic approach
By injecting hyaluronic acid into the skin, this therapy binds moisture in the skin, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production. In addition, the skin is injected with its own fat and other substances. In this way, many different processes can be set in motion in the skin tissue and the skin can be reinforced with volume.
All of the above-mentioned therapy methods have in common that they have a non-permanent effect, as the fillers are absorbed by the body. Accordingly, filler therapy must be repeated approximately every eight to 24 months in order to maintain a constant youthful appearance.
