Body application and products:
The skin contains a substantial moisturizing factor, called Hyalouronic Acid, which prevents its dehydration.
Hyalouronic Acid (HA) is a powerful moisturizer, which derives 1.000 times its weight in dampness (water)
form the surrounding environment. The HA is naturally produced by your skin contributing to hydration, but
unfortunately as we get older the recruitment is becoming weaker. This is one of the main reasons that we
feel our skin drier as the years go by.
The superficial treatment with creams may temporarily rehydrate the skin surface, but cannot offer ant maintain
the long hydration required for maintaining the elasticity and its healthy glow.
In case we want to achieve a deep and strong hydration of the skin we should use the Mesotherapy technique
using Dermafill Ultra1. In such a case the HA, is not used just to feel deep wrinkles, but to provide also with
deep moisturizing of the skin and indirectly help in eliminating wrinkles on the elasticity and the younger-looking
of the skin. This application is of particular value in areas of the body such as the neck, the neckline and the dorsal
surface of the hand edges. The mesotherapy technique becomes by injecting the HA Dermafill Ultra1 directly beneath
the skin surface in 2 or 3 sessions and at intervals of at up to 20-30 days.
The HA Dermafill Voluma, can be used without any problem and provide solutions to problems of asymmetry or
atrophy of tissue on other parts of the body.
In this manner it can be used to correct:
- To rectify unsightly wrinkles in the neckline
- To give a firmer image in the appearance of the hands
- To improve the contour of the buttocks
- To give volume to the calf muscles
- To smooth the skin in acne scars or traumatic scars
In addition, HA Dermafill Voluma can be used in reconstructive plastic surgery to restore the volume of soft tissues or
correct of tissue defects generated after oncological surgery or wound repair interventions.
Each technique has advantages for certain situations, and the ultimate determining factor is often surgeon preference.
The angle of injection is determined by the depth of the defect.
In general, more obtuse angles of insertion are used for deeper defects.
Fine to moderate wrinkles and other superficial defects require injection into the mid dermis with an angle of approach
of 30 - 45 degrees.
Deeper wrinkles may require an entry angle of greater than 45 degrees.
Fillers can be injected by one of the following 5 techniques:
Serial puncture, threading, fanning and crosshatching.
A. Serial puncture – to avoid irregularity – involves injecting a series of small boluses of the filler along the length
of the defect.
- Threading – for fine or superficial wrinkles – involves tunnelling the needle beneath the defect at the appropriate
depth and injecting the product as the needle is withdrawn (linear threading).
- Serial Threading – for lip and nasolabial fold augmentation – when combined with serial puncture, the technique
is called serial threading.
C. Fanning – to enhance tissue volume in areas such as the naso-labial triangle – is similar to threading, but multiple
threads are injected radially by changing direction without withdrawing the needle.
D. Crosshatching – for facial contours and enhancing tissue volume – involves injection of a series of threads perpendicular
to one another in a grid. Both fanning and crosshatching techniques are used to fill larger defects and for facial shaping.
The choice of needle is determined by the viscosity of the filler.
The HA injecting becomes directly beneath the skin surface.
