Filling by hyarulonic acid
Biodegradable fillers (e.g., hyaluronic acid) which last for variable periods of time are used to treat deep wrinkles, peribuccal (lip contours) wrinkles, nasolabial folds, worry lines, etc. This molecule is perfectly compatible with the skin and requires no pre-testing.
These fillers are injected beneath the wrinkle at various depths, with or without local anaesthetic. New non-traumatic taper-tip needles enable gentle treatment and reduce the risk of haematomas. In addition, most fillers used nowadays contain an anesthetic which makes the procedure virtually pain-free.
Duration of treatment
The treatment takes a few minutes. As with botulinum toxin, you can immediately resume your activities.
The effect is almost instantaneous. The only side effects of the treatment, if at all, may consist of some more or less pronounced red areas or small haematomas at the injection sites which disappear within 2 to 3 days.
