Deeply advanced wrinkles, which form due to a substance defect in the subcutaneous tissue, can be treated with the use of a so-called hyaluronic acid filler. With anti-wrinkle injections, plumping substances are injected into the tissue under the skin creases, thus smoothing out the wrinkles.
Today, impermanent fillers like hyaluronic acid are largely used since the bio-compatible, naturally-existing substance can be broken down by the body, as opposed to the previously used, non-absorbable substances, which could lead to the formation of foreign body granuloma (knot-shaped tissue growths).
Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-binding substance, which also naturally occurs in the skin. It protects, smooths and tightens the skin, activates cell renewal and safeguards the skin from environmental influences.
With age, the body loses its ability to produce hyaluronic acid by itself. In stronger forms, hyaluronic acid is fantastically suited to the treatment of deep wrinkles. Its plumping properties ensure that wrinkles are filled and supplied with moisture and tension, although the application must be repeated every six months to a year.
