Injectable wrinkle fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs. Most will fill lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from six months more
Injectable wrinkle fillers, unlike Botox injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, fill the line, crease, or area with one of several different substances. As a result, trouble spots nearly disappearIn this technique substances are administerd in the skin to fill out or plump up lines on your face that have been created by the loss of elasticity in the skin as you age. By restoring the volume to these areas your skin will look smoother and softer, resulting in a fresher and more youthful appearance. Earlier collagen was used but since it was derived from cattle skin, newer substances such as RESTYLANE/JUVEDERM containing hyaluronic acid have become available and are hugely popular.
When this gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It's also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. It is extracted and reformulated and now has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers.These fillers can be used on mouth lines,eye lines,smile lines on cheek,chin indentations,frown lines between the eyebrows and for lip enhancement.
Each treatment takes about 20 minutes and the results are instantaneous. Local anaethestic is injected prior to the treatment to make it comfortable. Slight redness and swelling may be seen after the treatment but will settle in a couple of days. Occasionally patients may experience some bruising in the area, which also settles with time.
Hyaluronic acid is completely broken down in the skin over time. The effect of the treatment last about 9 months after which top up is advised.
Anti Ageing Medicine
Anti-aging medicine is a clinical specialty is founded on the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders, and diseases.
