Fillings

Antiaesthetic Fillings with Hialuronic Acid

Fillings are very common aesthetic medicine techniques. Intradermal injections (on the skin) are used to improve the wrinkles.

The filling materials are those that can be introduced in the organism by injections. Depending on their duration they are classified in: re-absorbable or non-re-absorbable.

Re-absorbable fillings: injectable temporal fillings, rapidly degradable, which have a limited duration of 6 to 12 months. The most common products are the ones derived from collagen or from hyaluronic acid.

Non-re-absorbable fillings: they are final; so not re-absorbable and the most common are: methacrylate (artecoll and dermalive), acrylamide (aquamid and evolution) and polialquilamyde (bioalcamid).

The liquid silicone, in micro-spore shape or biopolymers belongs to the group of inorganic permanent compounds. The use of these products with aesthetic goals is forbidden because of the multiple adverse secondary effects.

The most common filling substance, attributable to its effectiveness and security is the hyaluronic acid. It is a polysaccharide present in the different tissues of every animal species, which performs an important function in the structure of the skin, being responsible for its elasticity. It has the ability to retain a great amount of water around it, contributing volume to the tissues.

The hyaluronic acid has the ability to retain the water in a percentage equivalent to thousands of times its weight. This is why it is used for hydration of the epidermis, because it reconstructs the fibers that sustain the tissues of the skin. It is used in mesotherapy sessions. For this reason it prevents wrinkles, helps retain water and improves hydration.

The treatment with hyaluronic acid does not require allergy tests because it is synthetized in a laboratory and it is injected in the skin superficially, integrating in a natural mode on the tissues without producing fibrosis by reaction to foreign body. It does not alter the characteristics of the skin. Yet more, it has a beneficial effect to the skin, by providing a better hydration and, until the effect lasts, volume to the dermis.

It is a significant remedy for the wrinkles, because it increases the volume in the folds, holes and cutaneous depressions in a very natural mode and with immediate results. It periodical use provokes the regeneration of the own collagen. The advantage of this product is that the substance is compatible with every tissue.

LIPS Increase and Outline

The filling products are also indicated for treating and outlining the lips, achieving a more beautiful and voluptuous appearance of the mouth.
