Collagen Fillers

Collagen Fillers

Subjected to bad weather and pollution, exposed to the sun’s rays, worn down by the adverse treatment inflicted by tobacco and hormonal variations, and subject to the classic effects of ageing, your skin finds its content of hyaluronic acid (one of the main components of the dermis) becoming scarcer as time passes. Your face, your neck, your cleavage (décolleté), your hands are drying out, becoming dull and are twice as susceptible to the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

The hydration of your skin is one of the essential factors of your well-being and your beauty. Many creams and other products for external application are offered, but their results are short-term and often not very noticeable.

Superficial micro-injections of hyaluronic acid into the dermis make it possible to rehydrate the skin deeply and thus to benefit from durable* effects in terms of rejuvenation of the face or of other parts of the body.

Developed from the hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin, these highly biocompatible product ranges are one of the safest and most efficient ways to:

Visibly reduce your most unsightly wrinkles
Redefine the contour of your lips and increase their volume
Enhance your face’s reliefs and contours
Recover all your radiance and natural charm.

What is collagen?
Collagen injections replenish the skin’s natural collagen. By supplementing your skin’s own collagen, injections help smooth facial lines and some types of scars. The natural beauty of your skin is enhanced as the contour of the support structure is restored.

What is Hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance normally made by the body that gives your skin its volume and fullness. Hyaluronic acid injections fill the space between collagen and elastin fibers within the skin, which replenishes the natural volume lost with aging. There’s no risk of infection, but you will need repeated treatments to maintain the result. Hyaluronic acid also attracts and binds water, which helps maintain fullness where it’s injected. Some hyaluronic acid materials are thicker and can add significant volume and structure. Others are smoother and thinner and have the ability to flow more consistently.

7 Most Asked Questions:

1. When can I ask my practitioner to benefit from a treatment with Fillers?

As soon as you think that the combined effects of fatigue, stress and the passage of time have visibly left their mark on your face, it’s time to talk about fillers with your practitioner. After a precise diagnosis, he or she will recommend the product best adapted to the treatment to be used.

2. What kind of practitioner should I see to benefit from a treatment with Fillers?

For your safety, fillers have been designed to be used, in the framework of a specific protocol, by duly and legally authorized practitioners. He or she may be an aesthetic medicine physician, a dermatologist, a plastic surgeon or any other specialist in this field.

3. What happens during a treatment session with Fillers?

During the session, which lasts about 30 minutes, the practitioner gives you intra-dermal injections, in the specific areas to be treated: facial depressions, Naso-labial folds, forehead wrinkles, scars… that’s all there is to it!

4. Is this treatment painful?

Fillers have been designed so that the treatment is as painless as possible. Your practitioner however will ask you about how sensitive you are to pain. Depending on your answers, a local anesthesia may be suggested.

5. How long does it take before I can see the results? And how long do they last?

At the end of the session, you can immediately see the difference in the areas that were treated. In about 30 minutes, wrinkles and marks are smoothed without your face and natural expression being transformed or becoming “frozen” in any way at all. And the results of a treatment last a long time (between 9 and 12 months).

6. How often should you have injection sessions with Fillers?

Unless your practitioner decides, during your follow-up visit, to inject more of the product to improve the work carried out on your skin, it isn’t necessary to schedule a new injection session, for the same areas treated, for at least 9 to 12 months.

7. What are the possible side effects with Fillers? Will I have to stay at home for a few days?

Fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, a component naturally found in the body. Hence, products present no potential for producing side effects. This is consistent with the fact that no allergic reactions have been reported to date and no preliminary allergy test is necessary.
