Is Wrinkle Treatment by Injection Painful?
This depends not only on your own pain perception but also on the treatment area. There are many possibilities to make the pain and discomfort more pleasant for the patient. Either the skin areas are anaesthetised with an anaesthetic cream before the procedure or products are used that already have a local anaesthetic integrated. The use of specially developed blunt needles also helps to relieve the patient’s pain.
How Long Does the Cosmetic Effect of a Wrinkle Treatment Last?
The duration of effect of an immediate aesthetic treatment with fillers based on hyaluronic acid or alternative fillers depends on many factors, such as skin structure, lifestyle, age of the patient, etc. On average, a treatment with alternative fillers should last 4-6 months, a hyaluronic acid injection 6-12 months. Afterwards, the body breaks down the substances and excretes them completely. This gives you the opportunity to decide on a new treatment again and again.
What are the risks and side effects?
After treatment, redness, swelling or pain may occur. However, these symptoms are considered normal and usually subside on their own within a few days of treatment.
How important is the doctor’s experience in wrinkle injections?
Wrinkle injection with hyaluronic acid is a relatively small, uncomplicated procedure. However, it involves your appearance, your body, and even your health. Therefore, you should approach the selection of the doctor extremely carefully. Because the application of hyaluronic acid is very safe only in the right hands and leads to naturally beautiful results. Therefore, many years of experience of the specialist, regular training and a strong sensitivity are among the basics for the correct use of injection needles. In addition, perfect knowledge of the anatomy and the ability to correctly analyze the condition of the wrinkles are basic requirements. The specialist must also have comprehensive knowledge of injection preparations and know how various hyaluronic acid products behave immediately after injection. Basically, only a highly professional, careful therapeutic approach by a safe and qualified specialist will lead to natural results.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is an endogenous polysaccharide called glycosaminoglycan, which 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 present in muscles, connective tissue and synovial fluid. Hyaluronic acid provides moisture to our eyes, ensures supple joints and is also responsible for fluid exchange between cells. In addition, hyaluronic acid promotes wound healing because of its anti-inflammatory effect. Since hyaluronic acid has a special structure, it can bind large amounts of moisture. Therefore, the active ingredient is considered a miracle weapon against wrinkles and a moisturizer for the skin when it comes to the anti-aging effect in the cosmetics sector – by means of hyaluronic acid, a padding of the skin with water is to be achieved. In this way it can come to the delay of wrinkle formation and it is supposed to soften already existing wrinkles. During the aging process, the body produces less and less hyaluronic acid, which causes the skin to lose volume, elasticity and tone. To counteract this, the extraordinary ability of the active ingredient to bind water in the tissue is utilized. It is precisely this ability that makes hyaluronic acid so interesting for aesthetic medicine.
