Treatment of wrinkles and larger areas by filler injections

The principle of filler injections (hyaluronic acid) is to raise interior contours, so as to impart a different glow to the face. The product injected consists mainly of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the skin, which is capable of holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and thus moisturising the skin deeply, so as to provide a major amount of tone.

If the effect of a filler injection is immediate, it is usually necessary to schedule several sessions of hyaluronic acid injections, as well as maintenance sessions, in order to maintain the beauty of your skin tone.

The most common areas treated with this non-permanent filler product are:

  • nasolabial folds
  • marionette lines
  • lips
  • labial-chin fold
  • jowls
  • cheekbones
  • nasolacrimal groove
  • perioral wrinkles

This treatment, which is a type of mesotherapy, can also be performed using various vitamin complexes in areas affected by crow's feet, wrinkles in the cheek, neck and even the dorsal skin of the hands.

Every surgical procedure can involve a certain amount of risk and complications that the patient must accept; your plastic surgeon will make it his or her duty to reduce the rate of occurrence by choosing the technique best suited to your medical situation. Complications such as bleeding, wound or prosthesis infections and poor healing, although relatively rare, can occur with any type of surgery.
