The quality of life and advances in Medicine and Dentistry have meant that the average life of Spaniards is extended, and although the average age increases, physical appearance over the years, in most cases is compromised .
The facial imperfections that can be corrected are the grooves and wrinkles, which appear as a result of dehydration and aging of the skin, fine lips and lip asymmetry.
It can be done by increasing the cheekbones, the gingival smile and the correction of the naso-genian sulcus.
Hyaluronic acid to rejuvenate the face
One of the techniques indicated for the correction of facial imperfections is the resorbable facial filling through the infiltration of hyaluronic acid.. This is a polysaccharide present in numerous tissues and organs of our body: in the cartilages, in the synovial fluid of the joints, in our epidermis and even in the connective tissue, which supports the spinal column. It helps us to attract and maintain water since it provides a large dose of hydration.
The result obtained is the remodeling of the facial contour, by correcting fine wrinkles and furrows. In this way volume is given to certain areas of the face, such as the lips and the zygomatic malar area.
It is also widely used in the hydration of the skin and the improvement of the liquid absorption of the cells, preventing the premature aging of the skin. In addition, it prevents eye diseases, maintaining good eye health, and helps strengthen ligaments and tendons, as well as recovering tissue.
Benefits of treatment with hyaluronic acid
- Hydration: ability to attract and retain water.
- Renewal of the cells, their division and proliferation.
- Anti-aging and anti-aging.
- Regenerating potential.
- The regeneration of the epidermis is accompanied by cell proliferation.
- Increased lost tissue such as lips, barcode, correction of nasolabial depressions and perioral wrinkles, gingival smile, nasolabial groove, etc.
Application of hyaluronic acid
There are two ways to apply hyaluronic acid:
- Topical form: as a normal skin cream. At the Toro Mattozzi Dental Clinic we make our own cream, which contains 40% concentration of hyaluronic acid. It works penetrating to three levels: light, medium and deep.
- Subcutaneous form; by means of small subcutaneous infiltrations, we apply hyaluronic acid to revitalize, rejuvenate and moisturize the cutaneous tissue.
In addition, after finishing our treatment, either dental rehabilitation or correction of dental malocclusion with different orthodontic treatments, we can perform in the Clinic the so-called lip profile and lip augmentation.
Results of hyaluronic acid
Profiling and lip augmentation by subcutaneous infiltration lasts between 9 months and a year, depending on the patient's hydration. That's why we should hydrate well all day long!
Side effects of hyaluronic acid
Generally, with the use of resorbable hyaluronic acid we have almost no side effects. In some cases there may be poor placement or use by the dentist who places it.
Differences between hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin
Basically hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin fulfill different functions. For example, we can not immobilize a muscle with hyaluronic acid but with Botox. With hyaluronic acid we try to correct wrinkles by regenerating and repairing the tissue, while with botulinum toxin we immobilize the tissue so that the wrinkle does not go over and the marks of expression are not shown.
In our clinic we prevent and treat all the possible irregularities that prevent us from having an ideal smile from the functional and aesthetic point of view, for that reason, from the diagnosis until the conclusion of the treatment we seek that the patient is completely satisfied.
