Fillers are a gel developed on the basis of hyaluronic acid or collagen. A bulking agent does not affect the muscles. It only fills in the wrinkles and pores in the skin. Fillers are used to fill in creases and dents and to add bulk to the fabric.
Fillers can be used in many areas. Treatment is most often carried out at:
Dark and deep spots under and around the eyes, sagging of the face, eyebrow shaping, acne and scar relief, filler is usually chosen when filling the lips, wrinkles between the lip and nose, wrinkles on the edges of the lips, lines around the lip hereabouts.
Using fine needles, the filler is injected into the area to be treated to eliminate wrinkles, pits, scars and sagging. The treatment takes about 30 minutes and the person can return to normal life after the treatment.
If you decide to have a treatment with hyaluronic acid, hyaluronic acid is injected into the facial skin with a very small needle. This instantly gives volume under the crease, filling it in and smoothing the skin. The treatment lasts about half an hour, after which you can go home immediately. It is possible that slight swelling or redness may appear on the treated area. This will disappear after a few days. In the first few days after the filling treatment, it is advisable not to visit a sauna or solarium and not to undergo a facial treatment. The result of wrinkle treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers is immediately visible, unless swelling occurs first. This will disappear in a few days, after which the effect will be clearly visible. The effect of hyaluronic acid remains visible for six months to a year and a half. The exact duration depends on the part of your face that was treated.
Collagen is also injected into the wrinkle path with a very fine needle to fill the wrinkles or eliminate the break in the skin. There are different forms of collagen depending on the concentration and cross-linking (longer duration). Nowadays it is no longer necessary to carry out an allergy test. It is good to repeat the procedure every six months, sometimes less often in the first sessions or with some new products. Slight redness and swelling are rare and can last from a few hours to two days.
A filler treatment is primarily intended for superficial wrinkles, fine lines and minor scars. These can be filled without surgery. Results of the injection are immediate and usually very good as long as the injection technique is well mastered by the doctor, otherwise bulging may occur along the fold path. It is necessary to adhere to superficial or shallow folds. The session lasts 20 to 30 minutes. Two procedures 2 or 3 weeks apart are recommended. This is the recommended minimum.
Redness, swelling or sensitivity may be observed after the treatment, but these will disappear quickly. The effect of fillers lasts from 6 to 24 months, depending on the type. Although the effect of the treatment can be seen immediately, the full effect can be seen within 10 days.
The costs differ depending on which filler you choose and how much of the filler is used. An ampoule of hyaluronic acid, for example, costs EUR 250.
From the age of 25 our body loses about 1.5% collagen per year. By the age of 35, your body has lost 15% of all collagen. It is no coincidence that already at the age of 30 you notice the first changes in the structure and elasticity of your skin. After the menopause, collagen degradation is even faster than before. That is why most people of this age age very quickly in just a few years. Stimulating collagen production in the skin and replenishing lost collagen is paramount to maintaining a youthful appearance.
The fillers are natural materials that are very well tolerated.
Yes, the body breaks down the fillers over time, so a repeat treatment should take place after about a year to achieve a lasting result.
Both fillers have their place. Hyaluronic acid works well for superficial wrinkles and if the wrinkles go deeper then the amount of hyaluronic acid needs to be increased. Collagen can also level out dents and appear flatter.
