Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Many small wrinkles can be treated in their initial state with Botox exclusively, as the underlying overactive muscles are temporarily paralyzed. Permanent wrinkles and smaller dimples should be treated einthere exclusively or additionally with autologous (micro fat transfer) or artificial fillers (like hyaluronic acid). Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of our skin, which is industrially prepared and sterilized for medical injection purposes.

Therefore, allergies are almost unknown with hyaluronic acid, compared to collagen fillers. I do not use permanent fillers, as complications (palpable nodules, skin irritations and discoloration) are too frequent with these substances. Hyaluronic acid-related complications are very rare and furthermore only temporary. Hyaluronic acid is prepared in a variety of viscosity grades (“thickness”, “cross linking”), we can choose from to achieve various cosmetic goals:

Fine wrinkles around the eyes and the lips (“smoker´s wrinkles”) can be filled exactly with the thinner, less viscous fillers that have been developed specifically for these indications. More prominent lines and wrinkles around the nose, the midface and the forehead that need more volume, are corrected with more viscous fillers that have an increased volume effect. Depending on the product and type of the hyaluronic acid preparation and the region, the effects lasts between 4 and 12 months. The effects usually last longer after repetitive treatments.

Hyaluronic acid is also especially useful for cosmetic treatment of thin lips which have lost their youthful volume and appear “old”. Those lips can be enhanced in contour and volume to regain an aesthetically pleasing full shape. The procedure is performed in a local anaesthesia block like you know from your dentist. Lip enhancement like I do it is performed in a professional way according to your wishes and has nothing to do with exaggerated and unnatural examples we all know from the boulevard media.
