Wrinkle treatment with hyaluronic acid – look younger naturally

Injecting hyaluronic acid under wrinkles can have a big effect and is an excellent supplement to other wrinkle treatments. If the age wrinkles are less pronounced, hyaluronic acid can be enough to reduce the effects of aging.

The good thing about hyaluronic acid is that it is a natural material that is found everywhere in the human body, for example in joint fluid. This means that injections with hyaluronic acid are tolerated very well.

Since the natural substance is gradually broken down over time, the treatment effect lasts between six months and two years. Wrinkle injections with hyaluronic acid can be repeated at no risk. The effect of hyaluronic acid stems from its huge capacity to bind water. A single molecule can bind up to six times its weight in water. Used as a filler, it has a padding effect. The skin gets its youthful appearance back and becomes taut and smooth. It also becomes more elastic. For skin injections, we use only the renowned fillers made by Allergan, whose hyaluronic acid is based exactly on the naturally occurring substance.

During treatment, the filler is injected directly into the relevant areas of skin. Hyaluronic acid injections are especially effective for wrinkles in the cheeks and eye regions and around the mouth.


About other fillers we use

Calcium hydroxylapatite (Radiesse®)

Radiesse® is a filler gel consisting of what are called calcium hydroxylapatite particles that immediately improves skin volume. Over time, the gel is broken down by the body and simultaneously stimulates the body’s own production of collagen. Collagen is responsible for the skin’s elasticity and tone. This leads to a long-term improvement in facial contours.

Patients like the natural-looking results of treatment and the soft, smooth feeling of their skin. As with hyaluronic acid, treatment does not usually need to be repeated until after one to two years.

We would be happy to advise you of the most suitable treatment for you in a personal consultation. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
