Wrinkle filling is a procedure in which preparations containing hyaluronic acid are used. It is a substance naturally occurring in the skin, but also in the human subcutaneous tissue. It is responsible for hydration and firmness of the skin and the volume of subcutaneous tissue. The aging process causes a gradual reduction in the amount of natural hyaluronic acid in our body, which affects the loss of volume, dryness and sagging of the skin and the formation of wrinkles and furrows on the face. Preparations containing hyaluronic acid injected during the treatment are designed to supplement its deficiency, perfectly moisturize, fill wrinkles and deep furrows on the face, give volume, model lips, improve the contour of the entire face and stimulate the natural regenerative processes of the skin by stimulating collagen fibers to rebuild.
Even after complete absorption of the preparation the skin looks better than before the treatment. The treatment is minimally invasive and requires no special preparation on the part of the patient. During the conversation before the treatment all contraindications are excluded and the area where the treatment will be applied is planned. Depending on the facial area, the procedure is performed after anaesthesia with cream (e.g. EMLA) or under dental anaesthesia. The effects of the treatment last about 10-12 months. This period may be longer or shorter depending on the patient’s age, skin type and lifestyle. Cigarette smoking, frequent exposure to the sun and visits to a solarium shorten the duration of the preparation.
