New freshness and firmness for your skin

Hyaluronic Acid

Dr. Tatjana Pavicic

We all age, and there’s nothing inherently bad about it. As the saying goes, “I would like to be 25 again, but with the knowledge I have today.” So, it’s not about chasing after eternal youth, but more about feeling fit at 40, 50, or even 70, and still feeling young at heart. However, our bodies undergo typical aging processes. Our skin loses its firmness, facial shape and contour change, and we don’t look in the mirror the way we feel.

We can prevent these unsightly changes by keeping our skin fresh and firm, replacing lost volume early, and preventing the “sagging” of the face. Following the approach of “Preserve Instead of Repair,” we aim to maintain your natural beauty.

Hyaluronic Acid – gentle moisture and strength for your skin

Hyaluronic Acid is an important component of our connective tissue and significantly contributes to the appearance of our skin due to its high water-binding capacity. In younger years, our skin is rich in hyaluronic acid, which gives it freshness and youthful firmness. With increasing age, the body’s hyaluronic acid content decreases – the skin becomes drier, and fine lines and wrinkles appear.

However, natural hyaluronic acid is only short-lived and is broken down and completely metabolized by the body within a few days. In modern aesthetic medicine, it is gently stabilized through certified processes.

Hyaluronic Acid is introduced into the dermis and takes effect within a very short time. The hyaluronic acid slowly breaks down in the body. Refreshment can be repeated as often as desired.

Hyaluronic Acid – Naturally Beneficial

Hyaluronic Acid is the skin’s natural moisture reservoir. One gram of hyaluronic acid can bind up to six liters of water. It stabilizes elastic and collagen fibers and protects the skin from free radicals. Hyaluronic acid ensures that the skin remains firm and appears fresh.

From around the age of 25, the hyaluronic acid content in the skin decreases, and elasticity and firmness diminish. Around the age of 40, the first fine lines become visible. By injecting identical hyaluronic acid into the body, the decreasing hyaluronic acid content of the skin can be replenished.

The right filler matters

There are numerous Hyaluronic Acid fillers on the market, but only a few have sufficient scientific studies and documentation. For the treatment, it is important, for example, how thoroughly the hyaluronic acid is purified and cross-linked to determine how much volume is built up by the filler. The type of cross-linking is also crucial, as it determines the distribution and integration in the tissue, and thus partly the compatibility.

We exclusively work with hyaluronic acid fillers that have been extensively tested and documented. Our filler lines offer a range of different fillers with varying cross-linking so that we can use the appropriate preparation for each area – from filling fine lines to efficient volume build-up in the cheek area.

You get the look you desire

Your facial expressions are not affected by the Hyaluronic Acid treatment, and volume or wrinkle treatment with hyaluronic acid is a reversible process. In case you are dissatisfied with the results for any reason, it is possible to inject a degrading enzyme (hyaluronidase) to break down the filler quickly.

Hyaluronic Acid, a natural polysaccharide, naturally occurs in the human body. The substance is synthesized by the body’s enzymes from individual building blocks into a complex structure that has particularly useful properties: Among other things, the components of hyaluronic acid can bind vast amounts of water. Hyaluronic acid bound with water forms a gel-like material that has multiple functions in the body.

Hyaluronic Acid is found almost everywhere in the body. For example, it is considered an essential component of the vitreous humor in the eyes. In addition, polysaccharide is also present in bones, intervertebral discs, and joints. It is found in particularly high levels in the skin, connective tissue, and the so-called extracellular matrix, a part of the tissue that lies between the cells.

In the skin, connective tissue, and areas between cells, hyaluronic acid provides firmness, volume, and elasticity. It is also responsible for the glow and full appearance that appears youthful.

From around the age of 25, the production of Hyaluronic Acid in the body gradually but consistently decreases. Consequently, the substance’s proportion in the body diminishes. The consequences may include drier eyes, as well as creaking and less mobile joints. The loss of hyaluronic acid is also clearly visible, especially in the skin: Alongside the degradation of collagen, there is a decrease in the “filling material” that gives the skin its firmness. The skin loses volume and seems to shrink. This leads to gravitational folds: The facial tissue starts to yield to gravity and begins to sag.

A safe scientific method has been developed to biotechnologically obtain Hyaluronic Acid. During the production process, proteins from yeast are fermented through bacterial processes. The substance is filtered and purified multiple times. The end product is medically usable hyaluronic acid. To produce a hyaluronic acid filler that injects new volume and freshness, this hyaluronic acid is further cross-linked and modified. This creates various types of fillers, from thin-fluid to slightly thicker and more stable, with different granular/particle or mesh-like cohesive appearances. All these different characteristics also influence the distribution of a filler in the tissue, as not all hyaluronic acid fillers are the same.

Hyaluronic Acid has been used in modern medicine for many years. The substance is used, for example, as eye drops to moisturize the eyes, as a nasal spray against dry, irritated nasal mucosa, or as injections in the treatment of joint wear (osteoarthritis).

The shelves in drugstores and supermarkets are full of cosmetics promising significant anti-aging effects. Even manufacturers who exclusively sell their products online tout their effectiveness. These companies and labels engage in elaborate marketing to promote their serums, creams, lotions, or masks.

However, currently, there is no cosmetic product on the market that has an effect comparable to a filler injection. Unfortunately, no cream can satisfactorily and especially permanently make wrinkles disappear – and this is due to the following reasons: The concentration of the active ingredient in each product is usually far too low. If the manufacturers were to process more hyaluronic acid in the cosmetics, the products would become too expensive. Another reason is the molecular size of the hyaluronic acid used, which means that the cosmetics usually only have a superficial effect. A tightening effect may occur, but when the product used is discontinued, the effect quickly wears off.

The concept of taking Hyaluronic Acid as a dietary supplement and fighting wrinkles according to the motto “True beauty comes from within” sounds attractive. The active ingredient in the capsules is said to have a holistic effect on the body and to penetrate all layers of the skin from the inside.

And it’s true: the capsules can support the skin with better moisture penetration and possibly also reduce small dryness lines. Many patients also report an increased glow of the skin. However, these capsules cannot do magic – so it is not possible to secure “eternal youth” with just one capsule a day. With them, no visible effect – as can be achieved with an injection of hyaluronic acid – can be achieved. It should also be noted that the general optical aging process is not only related to hyaluronic acid degradation. Many other factors also play a role in skin aging.

As you have already learned, when the body’s production of hyaluronic acid decreases, the tissue becomes slack and sags. Gravity creates gravitational wrinkles that can be plumped up with hyaluronic acid injections. For this purpose, the substance is injected with a fine cannula under the corresponding wrinkles or skin areas. In this way, unlike cosmetics, which usually only have a superficial effect, they can penetrate the deep layers of the skin. There the active ingredient in the syringe unfolds its padding and volume-enhancing effect.

Furthermore, our face loses volume, mainly due to the loss of collagen, deep fat pads and bones. Therefore, the newer volume hyaluronic acid fillers are also used today to build up volume, which lifts the “sagged” areas of the face and gives the face a fresher and more youthful contour.

Fillers work very well on gravitational wrinkles like nasolabial folds. Forehead wrinkles, wrinkles around the mouth and creases on the décolleté can also be optimally treated with it. We can also use the injections to fill up sunken tissue, such as on the cheeks or temples.

Hyaluronic Acid fillers are not only an optimal helper in the fight against wrinkles, but the active ingredient can also help model the lips. It is thus possible, for example, to emphasize the lip contour more or to increase the volume of the lip. Here, too, the effect is based on the property of being able to bind a great deal of water, resulting in a significant padding effect. But don’t worry about the “inflatable lips” or the “duckbill” – the right technique, the right choice of hyaluronic acid filler and the necessary anatomical knowledge of your expert will protect you from such “horror pictures”.

With filler injections, the nose can be corrected without any surgery. Using a minimally invasive injection, we can alleviate minor, annoying blemishes or even eliminate them. These include, for example, inequalities, dents and bony edges that are visible under the skin. It is also possible for us to optically raise the tip of the nose slightly or to compensate for a bump in the nose.

The result of the non-surgical rhinoplasty is immediately visible. It usually lasts around 12 to 18 months. The treatment can then be repeated if desired. Positive side effect: The result lasts longer with repeat treatments.

We can also use the fillers to treat a typical “women’s problem”: What is known as vaginal atrophy can occur as a result of the natural aging processes and as a side effect of certain medications. Here, the tissue in the female genital area becomes thinner. The outer labia become weaker and lose tension and volume. They look like they’ve fallen in love. Many women are bothered by this visual appearance.

In many cases, full labia has a positive effect on a woman’s well-being and self-confidence. With Hyaluronic Acid injections, we can pad the outer labia and give them new volume.
