Filler – Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is one of the most used fillers. Filler means filling substance. There are different fillers, which are used for treatment for example collagen. But hyaluronic acid is most biocompatible because of its natural incidence in human bodies.
There are absorbable and non-absorbable fillers (like for example silicone).
The main focus of hyaluronic acid fillers is direct filling of non-dynamic wrincles, filling of lips and sunken scars. Elevated scars can not be treated by fillers, but silicone sheets or dermabrasion.

What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid lies in the connective tissue of human bodies. That is why it is most biocompatible because of its natural incidence. In human bodies it is built from integral proteines. It has the ability for linking water 1.000 to 6.000 times of its molecule size. Besides it has the effect to “oil” joints. Pure hyaluronic acid is as viskous as jelly. In aging skin the concentration of hyaluronic acid is sinking. The consequence are wrinkles.
External use of fillers can improve non-dynamic wrinkles and deficites in volume. Many stars have this knowledge. Promis.
Use of Hyaluronic acid in medicine
Hyaluronicacid can be used for injections in damaged joints for example the knee. It has a bumper-effect. Furthermore it is used in eye-drops for treating dry eyes or for treating incontinence. Hyaluronoc acid is made from animals (z.B. Hahnenkamm) or biotechnical from special bacteria cultures.
Wrinkle treatment with hyaluronic acid / Fillers in aesthetic treatments
Botulinumtoxine weakens mimic muscels, which are responsible for causing the so called dynamic wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid fills in a direct way. You can use it to fill wrinkles or fill voluma in lips. Furthermore it helps moisturizing skin because of its water-linking ability.
When using Botox the muscel can not contract as strong as normaly. This is used in treatment of dynamic wrinkles mostly for wrinkles on the forehead. This treatment is so minimal and you do not need Plastic surgery/ Facelifting.
There are different viscosities of hyaluronic acid. You use it for direct wrinkle fillings or create new volumas of lips, in the nasolabial folds or cheeks. You can see the result immediatly. Because of waterlinking ability the tissue is hydrated for a long time. The hyaluronic acid effect lasts almost 1 year.
