WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID (HA)
Hyaluronic Acid is a sugar naturally present in our skin where bonds water up to a thousand times its molecular weight; therefore it is responsible for skin hydration , volume and tone. Every single day one third of our body hyaluronic acid is degraded and turned over, unfortunately starting at around 25 years of age, the turn over of the degraded component progressively slows down togheter with the water that bonds. From then the skin is in debt of water and loses volume and tone.
HA FILLER USE
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers aren’t used for wrinkles and folds only (nasolabial folds, marionette lines, forehead horizontal wrinkles, vertical glabella lines between the eyebrows ), but also to treat the volume loss areas due to slimming, aging related progressive dehydration ( temples, tear trough, cheeks, earlobe ), or volumes that have never been as we wish (zygoma, weak chin, angles of the jaw, lips ), genetically or due to a trauma or just because there is an asymmetry. We exclusively use resorbable fillers to have natural looking results following the evolution skin has with time.
CROSS LINKED HYALURONIC ACID
Cross Linked Hyaluronic Acid is gradually resorbed in between 6 and 18 months, depending on the depth of placement and grade of density; as a matter of fact each area and specific problem that we want to improve has its own hyaluronic acid filler: low density – fine lines, higher density – to replenish greater volumes.
FILLER & OTHER ANTI-AGING TREATMENTS
We always see the Big Picture, the whole person not as single anatomical parts; that’s why we make an individual rejuvenation and beauty comprehensive plan where dermal HA fillers could be combined with other anti-aging treatments such as peelings, neuromodulators, to soften expression wrinkles, laser resurfacing, radiofrequency, preventative and corrective prescription cosmeceuticals, together with an healthy active lifestyle and a balanced diet
“What kind of results should I expect from hyaluronic acid ( HA ) filler ? I don’t want it to be too noticeable or that all of the sudden I have a completely different appearance”
Our basic approach to the aesthetic medicine targets at looking and being better gradually and with no excesses. We refuse those 90’s unnatural “aesthetic” standards, we rather work hard so the real beauty concept prevails, touching the unconscious and not disturbing. Restoring volumes should always reach proportion and harmony .
“Could I have side effects?”
The treated area could bruise, especially if daily drinking Green Tea, using anticoagulants ( even aspirin or other anti inflammatory drugs ), or having the monthly period; let us know in advance these circumstances. It will get back to normal in just few days, keep us updated, we always prefer to check it.
“How the HA filler is applied?”
Skin Cleansing and Disinfection, face analysis to plan the treatment, topical anesthetic and finally HA filler delivery.
“What are the after care precautions?”
Drink a lot of water to boost the hydrating and volumizing effect of hyaluronic acid; Apply Sun Protection 50+ with uvA coverage; avoid sun exposure or sun bed for 3 to 4 days; avoid sauna or steam bath for 3 to 4 days.
