    General Information about Hyaluronic Acid Treatment in Berlin

    What types of hyaluron treatment are there?

    You would like to receive detailed descriptions of the individual procedures. Here you can find out more about the services we offer regarding hyaluronic acid treatment:

    What actually is hyaluronic acid?

    Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the connective tissue, which can bind a large amount of moisture and is therefore essential for elastic and youthful-looking skin. Hyaluronic acid is found in all human cell tissue and fulfils other important functions in the human body besides water storage.

    In what form is hyaluronic acid used in aesthetic medicine?

    Hyaluronic acid is one of the most common preparations for wrinkle treatment. In a minimally invasive procedure, hyaluronic acid can be injected into wrinkles, rings under the eyes can be filled in or the lips can be modelled. Hyaluronic acid is also used to model and tighten facial contours. The noticeably positive change achieved through hyaluronic acid treatment lasts for about 6 to 12 months. Aesthetic medicine makes use of the natural properties of hyaluronic acid by injecting it under the skin as a natural filler to give the skin more volume again. This method can be used to treat a wide variety of wrinkles.

    What are the advantages of a hyaluronic acid treatment?

    Since hyaluronic acid is a natural cell building material, the body does not react allergically to its injection. This is especially true for preparations based on non-animal hyaluronic acid. Modern hyaluronic acid preparations also have a particularly suitable composition for being injected and distributed optimally. The results achieved by a hyaluronic acid treatment look natural and are very gentle on the skin. After such a treatment, you will appears younger, fresher and therefore more energetic, without the environment being directly aware of the reasons for this. Costs of such treatments depend on the amount of hyaluronic acid used.

    What fillers are available?

    Conventional surgical procedures in plastic and aesthetic surgery are increasingly being replaced by alternative, minimally invasive treatment methods. The most popular of these are injections of any kind. Within a very short time, cheeks can be plumped up, wrinkles injected, lips filled in and the décolleté smoothed out – all without the need for a scalpel, prolonged downtime or scars. This makes the procedures not only less risky and more tolerable, but also a lot cheaper compared to conventional surgeries.
    In order to inject or plump up the different areas of the body, aesthetic medicine uses different fillers. The most popular fillers are the substances that occur naturally in our body and can be broken down by the human body. The following fillers are generally used:

     

    • Hyaluronic Acid
    • Autologous Fat
    • Calcium Hydroxyapatite
    • Polylactic Acid
    • Polycaprolactone
    • Collagen

     

    Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid is an endogenous polysaccharide called glycosaminoglycan that is found in large quantities in the human body. This naturally occurring polysaccharide is produced by the body’s own cells. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the human body, where it performs a variety of tasks. It is found in many types of tissue and is mainly found in muscles, connective tissue, and synovial fluid. The unique ability of hyaluronic acid to bind water in the tissue is exploited by aesthetic medicine.

    Autologous fat: Autologous fat as a filler is very popular because permanent results can be achieved. Injections with the patient’s own fat begin by removing the required fat from the pre-determined areas of the body by means of liposuction. It is then prepared and injected into the tissue using fine cannulas. The injected fat cells usually remain in the tissue permanently, as experience has shown that 70 percent of them grow. Several treatments can also be carried out without further ado. The result of such an injection looks very natural and remains permanently.

    Calcium hydroxylapatite: Calcium hydroxylapatite is known under the name Radiesse. This is a mineral mass that can be shaped as desired during the curing process. The filler stimulates the body’s own synthesis of collagen, resulting in a longer-lasting, skin-smoothing effect. When injected with hydroxyapatite, the effect lasts for about two years. This effect diminishes over time, as hydroxyapatite is a substance that is degraded by the body.

    Polylactic acid: This dermal filler is a complex sugar. Although its basic substance is of a natural origin, the water-soluble filler used in aesthetic medicine is bio-synthetically (artificially) produced. Injections with polylactic acid are used to build skin tissue from the inside out. Only when new collagen-rich tissue has built up, the tightening of the patient’s own tissue becomes visible. The effect of this filler can last up to three years.

    Polycaprolactone: Polycaprolactone is a plumping, biodegradable, medical polymer filler. It is also known as ellansé and is used primarily in wrinkle treatment. The different lengths of the polymer chains make it possible to produce the novel filler in various forms of different duration of action. The different forms are identified by the letters S, M, L and E. Over time, polycaprolactone forms collagen, whose plumping effect keeps the skin firm and fresh. The substance can keep the skin wrinkle-free for up to four years.

    Collagen: Collagen is a protein produced naturally in the body, but is not used as often because the likelihood of allergy is relatively high at around three percent to the foreign protein it contains. However, an allergy test is carried out approximately two weeks before the planned application. The advantage here is the good modelability as well as the rapid regression of the swellings. The result is also temporarily limited, as the collagen is broken down by the body within four to six months.

    What Alternatives are there to Hyaluronic Acid?

    Since hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body, intolerances of any kind to bio-synthesized hyaluronic acid are largely unknown. Nevertheless, there may be other reasons why hyaluronic acid should not be used. In such a case, it is advisable to resort to the available alternative methods. The following methods are available from us:

    (1) Autologous blood treatment: the so-called vampire lifting is an injection with your own blood. First, the blood is taken from you, immediately afterwards it is prepared and in the next step it is injected directly into the skin. This ultimately provides a skin tightening effect.

    (2) Autologous fat injections: Injection with autologous fat allows for a slightly more permanent result, as the injected autologous fat cells cannot be broken down once they have grown. Since experience has shown that the fat cells grow at a rate of about 70 percent, the result achieved is largely retained. The final result will be seen about six weeks after the treatment.

    (3) Injections with polylactic acid: This dermal filler is a complex sugar. Although its basic substance is of a natural origin, the water-soluble filler used in aesthetic medicine is bio-synthetically (artificially) produced. Injections with polylactic acid are used to build skin tissue from the inside out. In this way, the skin is tightened, wrinkles are smoothed and connective tissue is supported and strengthened. However, it can take up to 16 weeks before you see the full effect of polylactic acid. Only when new collagen-rich tissue has built up will the tightening of your own tissue become visible. The effect of this filler can last up to three years.

    (4) Injections with calcium hydroxylapatite: Calcium hydroxylapatite is known as Radiesse. This is a mineral compound that can be molded into any shape during the curing process. The filler stimulates the body’s own synthesis of collagen, resulting in a longer-lasting, skin-smoothing effect. When injected with hydroxyapatite, the effect lasts for about two years. This effect diminishes over time, as hydroxyapatite is a substance that is degraded by the body.

    (5) Injections with polycaprolactone: Polycaprolactone is a plumping, biodegradable, medical polymer filler. It is also known as ellansé and is mainly used in the treatment of wrinkles. The substance is also used for contouring and volume enhancement. Due to the different lengths of the polymer chains, the novel filler is available in various types with
    different duration of action. The different types are marked with the letters S, M, L and E. Polycaprolactone forms collagen over time, whose plumping effect keeps the skin firm and fresh. The substance can keep the skin wrinkle-free for up to four years.

    (6) Injections with collagen: Collagen is a protein produced naturally in the body, but it is not used as often because the likelihood of allergy is relatively high at about three percent to the foreign protein it contains. However, an allergy test is carried out approximately two weeks before the planned application. The advantage here is the good modelability as well as the rapid regression of the swellings. The result is also temporarily limited, as the collagen is broken down by the body within four to six months.

    (7) Ultrasound treatment: With the help of ultrasound, so-called therapeutic heat is conducted into the deep layers of the skin, which stimulates collagen formation and consequently tightens the skin. The tightening effect becomes noticeable in the course of the following six months and can last for about two years.
