Facial aging begins already in your twenties and progresses over the course of life due to physiological changes in skin and subcutaneous tissue. Aging can be best seen on the face and neck because of wrinkling and skin atrophy and one of the most efficient rejuvenation and volumisation procedures of some parts of the face is using hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers.
Injectable dermal fillers or subdermal implants are more and more accepted as non-surgical corrections which give lasting results, maintaining at the same time facial features and a natural look. They serve for the correction of static and dynamic wrinkles, modelling and filling in deeper anomalies and hollow spots. What is more, the purpose of dermal fillers is to revitalize skin and facial expressions, which gives you back youthful appearance and freshness. Because of their effect, they have fast assumed an important role in cosmetic surgery and have become extremely popular with patients of all age groups. For patients who plan facial rejuvenation by injecting dermal fillers, the greatest advantage is that after the treatment the effect of wrinkle correction or of filling-in defects is visible within seconds. Dermal fillers are substances that are injected under or in different layers of skin dermis in order to lift its surface. Fillers are used for the correction of smaller and deeper wrinkles, skinfolds and scars, but also for pumping up the lip volume.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally found in our skin and it is a key molecule when it comes to the process of skin aging. It is responsible for the elasticity and the supporting function, i.e. the elastic characteristics of the skin. Young skin contains a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid which makes skin elastic and soft, but with a natural aging process the quantity of hyaluronic acid and collagene falls which results in dry skin and wrinkles. As a result and because of gravity and constant use of muscles, wrinkles are created and face loses its volume and dry skin sags.
With natural fillers Dermavisc® the result is also natural.
