With the passage of the years the face begins to lose volume by resorption and decrease of the adipose tissue and collagen.
This is manifested by flattening of the cheekbones, sinking of the cheeks and presence of facial grooves. To achieve a facial rejuvenation it is necessary to replace lost volumes.
Hyaluronic Acid Filling Treatment
Today we have fillers that do not produce allergic reactions, do not migrate and give natural results. The procedure begins with the placement of anesthetic and cold creams that make it painless and allow the patient to resume his activity after the end of the procedure . This procedure gives harmony to the face, attenuates grooves and depressions, and the patient can observe and accompany the doctor’s work.
In Hoogstra Medical Centers the placement of fillers and the application of botulinum toxin (like all surgeries) are performed by Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra.
Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra uses only two types of fillers.
1) Autologists, autograft of fat of the patient.
2) Heterologists or synthetics, of which it uses only hyaluronic acids such as Restylane (from the Galderma laboratory) and Voluma (from the Allergan laboratory).
Unfortunately, many patients arrive at our Centers saying that they placed hyaluronic acid, and when asked how much time has passed since placement, they often indicate a much longer time than they last in the body.
Restylane has an average duration of 14 months. Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra uses it for wrinkle fillers and facial furrows. Voluma has a much longer duration and is used to model cheekbones, chin, tear canal and maxillary branch.
Unfortunately, some medical and non-medical professionals continue to fill in prohibited products such as silicones. This leads to large physical deformations, damage to the health and psyche of the patient. This damage is permanent and irreversible. Silicones migrate and produce those typical labial and facial deformations.
If you see a deformed lip or a deformed face, it is very likely that you have placed a prohibited product.
Hyaluronic acids and botulinum toxin should be applied exclusively by plastic surgeons who have a greater knowledge of the anatomy of the body.
The application should be carried out slowly and gradually so that the patient accompanies the subtle changes that occur.
If the procedure is performed in this way, the results should always be natural and the patient would notice an improvement immediately upon application.
In our center it is very rare to see a hyper-correction, but if this were to occur, first you have to wait about 30 days because it is probably a small inflammation, which is based on soft massages performed by the same patient.
More information on hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is present in the human body and this makes it the safest filler in the market and it could be confirmed that it is practically free of complications.
Hyaluronic acid rejection by the patient is usually caused by the use of a low quality brand.
It is common to receive patients who performed treatments in other centers and report that it lasted only a couple of months.
This is because they placed low quality hyaluronic acid.
In our Centers there are only two brands that give us maximum security and are Restylane (Galderma) and Voluma (Allergan).
What is hyaluronidase?
Hyaluronidase is an enzyme, a catalyst, which breaks down the hyaluronic acid molecule and degrades it, leading to its reabsorption and disappearance.
How long do you act?
A frequent question is how long does the product take to reabsorb?
As long as a second session is not required, the product will disappear in less than 24 hours.
