Hyaluronic acid-based anti-wrinkle injection treatments smooth out wrinkles and fill furrows in the face to restore firmness and evenness.
What is it?
The hyaluronic acid in the filler is a cross-linked hyaluronic acid and depending on the level of cross-linking, it acquires greater density and structure, and consequently a longer absorption time.
How does it work?
The filler restores the natural volume of the skin, which has been lost over time. This loss of volume, together with skin laxity, causes wrinkles, which is why the restoration of volume relaxes the skin and reduces or eliminates wrinkles. Mimic wrinkles, on the other hand, cannot be treated with fillers, but only with Botox to reduce muscle contraction. Only at a later stage can very specific fillers such as HydroBooster be used to work effectively on the individual wrinkle.
Recovery time and mode
The treatment is neither invasive nor painful. Cross-linked hyaluronic acid fillers leave no visible signs following their application, except for a slight swelling that disappears within 48 hours and small bruises that disappear in 5 to 6 days.
Results are visible after 6 to 12 months. In some cases, the aesthetic doctor can mix several treatments (botox and filler or filler and bio-revitalization) to obtain a more complete and harmonious result.

Biorevitalization is an injection treatment based on nutrients that stimulate the action of fibroblasts and promote the production of new collagen, which is essential to reduce wrinkles and restore skin elasticity.
Biorevitalizing threads are threads based on biocompatible substances capable of stimulating the natural production of collagen.
Traction threads are also referred to as a non-surgical facelift. They are positioned in strategic points of the face and reshape its contours.
