How light it brings to the face?

When we want to bring light to the face that we are able to grasp exactly what the points are face off. These points are usually areas coinciding with volume loss, usually fat loss, and we will try is to reposition the volume to where it was lost and with it, if we can restore that volume by injecting natural substances, what we do reproject these planes is lost and consequently the light projected return on that plane. So we will do a gradual way and what we will get is therefore disappears face look tired.


What points are indicated to light?

The points that call trigger points of light in the face, usually when a person comes to consult sad, tired and dull face, usually the following: the call PAL, trigger points of light, and we will distinguish five fundamentally. The first coincides with the area above the eyebrow, so we call supraciliar point. Therefore restitution volume at this level will get not only raise the eyebrow and make the skin of the eyelid falling is reduced, but also brighten the upper third of the face. The second point I would just coincident with orbitomalar what would be the point, which is that little groove that is formed at the level of the eyecup. In the time that we restore volume project we will achieve, not only enhance hydration and all those little wrinkles, but the projection of light is now projected on a plane and not only a sunken plane. The third would be the malar point, the most important of the middle third of the face, where the malar projection to prevent the fall in the line tracing the call tear will therefore achieve an improvement at this level. The fourth point is the top of what we would call nasogeneano or philtrum, it would be this groove between the nose and upper lip. A trend that was formerly groove fill, it is understood today that is formed by the fall, loss of volume in the malar projection point and the subjection of all the zygomatic area, which is the hockey stick technique. Here what we are doing is injecting a small bolus, specifically hyaluronic acid at this level, and got the feeling improves the entire sulcus area nasogeneano. And the last would be in the area that is around the chin would call PAL point 5 to perimentoniano. With any projection level of these five points we will try to restore radiance to the face.


What is the treatment and how many sessions are needed?

Treatment is therefore to return to those areas that have been that have been depressed, the projection return to that level. We use the most natural occurring substance that is hyaluronic acid. The natural element that we have in our skin, we lost over time, and that what we do is a restoration of what was lost. To do this, try to inject with a microcannula, rounded tip to minimize the risk of bruising, entering a specific point, for example in the PAL 1 speak of entering the queue eyebrow point, and we would do with the radial tracer hyaluronic acid. It is also the technique known as sunshine. In the second case we would enter a point from the cheekbone to access the whole area of ​​the eyecup. Also we would for the PAL 3, that is, the area of ​​the cheekbone, philtrum area or the area around the chin. How long does it last? As hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that once injected it depends on the needs of individual skin, so it will swallow like a plant swallow water when you water, as needed. Usually the treatment is performed in a session with this in five minutes you return the brightness to the face and then the length may generally be around four, maximum six months.


To what age is recommended?

Hyaluronic acid, being an extremely natural substance, it is recommended from any age, any gender and in any season. While the needs are most urgent from the 30, 35 years, we are seeing increasingly earlier ages and usually also made girls when even very young girls want to improve problems with acne scars, etc.. Then any age is good for a moisturizing effect thanks to hyaluronic acid.
