Filling Wrinkles and Volumetric Treatments with Cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid

Basic information.

At the age of 25 on the surface of the skin, there appear first signs of aging. Over time, the regenerative processes in the skin become slower and its structure weakens. The amount of the substances, which make the skin firm and smooth begins to decrease. It is caused by the external factors and natural aging process of the organism.

One of the most noticeable early signs of aging are wrinkles that become deeper with time. With age, the level of substances, which make our skin firm and smooth is reduced. These substances are collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. An ordered structure of the dermis in the young skin and abundant reserves of collagen and elastin are responsible for the firmness and smoothness of the skin. The natural aging process, which depends on the internal factors, is also modified by external factors (e.g. UV radiation) changes our skin.

Another key factor responsible for wrinkles is the decline in production of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that binds water, surrounds cells and makes the skin look young and smooth. The decrease of this valuable natural substance in the skin causes its volume and elasticity loss, and makes the skin more prone to damages.

An ideal solution to make the skin look young, healthy and without wrinkles is the use of a proper filler based on cross-linked hyaluronic acid. All cross-linked hyaluronic acids used in our office contain BDDE cross-linking agent – in that the treatment effects persist for 6-24 months. The filling wrinkles treatment is a minimally invasive procedure, which makes our skin free from wrinkles, look younger and natural.

Effectiveness – Science Above All

A hyaluronic acid molecule can bind water for 1,000 times higher than its weight, creating viscous, resilient high volume solutions, which fill extracellular space. Hyaluronan is responsible for tissue hydration. Hyaluronic acid is also an antiradical shield and an essential factor in the process of wound healing. Cross-linked hyaluronic acids are divided into three main groups, according to their purpose and properties – it is worth remembering that the use of non-cross-linked (linear) hyaluronic acid does not bring scientifically proven long-term results. Linear acid remains in the skin for about 12 hours.

Group 1 – cross-linked hyaluronic acids used to regenerate the skin:

– a relatively small molecule (approx. 100-150um) and a fine crosslinking characterize cross-linked hyaluronic acids used to regenerate the skin. Therefore, the product can be provided in the shallow layers of the dermis, hydrating and wonderfully revitalizing the skin. Hyaluronic acid can be applied either through needle mesotherapy, leaving small amounts of the acid in the skin, or mesolift – by a linear application of the acid, which brings a gentle lift and deep revitalization of the skin. The results of this treatment persist for 6 months.

Group 2 – cross-linked hyaluronic acids used to fill wrinkles, folds and lips:

– cross-linked hyaluronic acids used to fill wrinkles, folds and lips are characterized by a larger molecule (200-600um) and higher cross-linking. Therefore, the product can be provided both in the medium and deep layers of the dermis in a little bit higher amounts and without risk of irregularities on the skin surface. An important factor is the concentration of hyaluronic acid in the product. It is responsible for water binding in the tissues – the higher the concentration of the acid is, the more resilient the acid gets, and as a result, the effects are more natural. The effects persist for 9-12 months.

Group 3 – cross-linked hyaluronic acids used to restore or change the tissue volume

– cross-linked hyaluronic acids used to restore or change the tissue volume are commonly referred to as volumetric acids. They are characterized primarily by the molecule size (from 1200um) and high cross-linking. The purpose of these acids are changes in the volume, for example – emphasizing the cheekbones. Acids of this group should be applied subcutaneously and in some cases directly on the bone – with this technique, we can use large amounts of the product, without risk of irregularities on the skin surface. A serious mistake is to inject such a filler into the shallow or medium layers of the dermis – it can lead to complications, some of which will appear after years of the improper use of the filler. The most common mistake is to apply acids of this type within the contour of the lips and vermilion zone. The proper use of volumetric acid guarantees effects that persist up to 18 months without risk of adverse complications.
