The term “wrinkle injection” is often used to describe two types of wrinkle treatment. These are the Botox® therapy and injections with fillers such as hyaluronic acid. The combination of these two treatment methods provides the best, most natural result in many cases. Modern beauty doctors do not only treat individual wrinkles, but they look at an entire region and create a harmonious overall picture. However, the Botox® treatment is not an injection in the narrower sense. The wrinkle-smoothing effect results from the fact that Botox® blocks the nerve impulses and thus prevents the development of mimic wrinkles. The actual injection of the wrinkles can be carried out additionally, but then with hyaluronic acid or a similar active ingredient as the patient’s own fat.
Which wrinkles are suitable for injection?
The injection for wrinkle treatment is the right therapy, especially for deeper, static wrinkles. These include:
- Crow’s feet
- upper lip wrinkles
- deep forehead wrinkles
- nasolabial folds between nostril and corner of the mouth
- frown line between the eyebrows
- mouth wrinkles
- wrinkles on neck and décolleté
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. It is responsible for the body, including the skin, being able to store sufficient moisture. With increasing age, however, the hyaluronic acid in the body decomposes. It can be supplemented as an external injection within the scope of a wrinkle treatment. In this way, youthful firmness, smooth skin, and clear contours can be restored. Hyaluronic acid for beauty medicine is available in different qualities, for each indication there is a suitable preparation. In addition to hyaluronic acid, other active ingredients, such as the patient’s own fat, are used for wrinkle treatment.
With modern injection methods such as the pix’L cannula, hyaluronic acid or other fillers can be injected very gently into the skin. They can be evenly distributed and prevent too strong transitions between treated and untreated areas.
