What happens to the skin as it ages?
Ageing is a natural process that affects everyone.
The signs of ageing vary according to age, skin type, lifestyle and hereditary factors.
The skin, as it ages, undergoes an extremely gradual process that begins at around 25-30 years.
The signs of ageing include loss of elasticity, less firm skin, folds, wrinkles and blemishes on the skin, along with a less shiny appearance.
There are 2 main types of ageing factors to consider:
• intrinsic or chronological skin ageing
• extrinsic skin ageing
While extrinsic ageing factors can be well controlled with the daily care of our skin and our habits, intrinsic factors are unique and inevitable, but they can be effectively countered with specific treatments.
How to use hyaluronic acid in this case?
Hyaluronic acid creams and fillers can help to achieve a smooth effect on the skin that shows the first signs of ageing.
What are wrinkles?
Wrinkles are the most common and visible signs of skin ageing and indicate the physiological decrease of natural collagen and natural hyaluronic acid in the skin.
Wrinkles are common because they result from the inevitable loss of elasticity of the dermal layers; furthermore, they are visible because they first appear in areas exposed to the extrinsic factors of ageing.
The sun is one of the most crucial factors, which leads to wrinkles first appearing in areas exposed to UV rays, typically the face, décolleté and hands.
Wrinkles appear on the skin as lasting lines and folds and show first in the areas most subject to repeated movements, such as the outer sides of the eyes, as well as the lips’ contour or the nasolabial line.
What is HA?
Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a natural substance produced by our body.
It is manly present in the skin, the eyes and connective tissue.
Its importance comes from its ability to hold water.
Thanks to this ability, it can give elasticity, structure and resistance to tissues.
As we age, when our bodies begin to synthesize less hyaluronic acid, the effect is especially visible on the skin, and particularly in areas exposed to the sun; therefore, we experience loss of smoothness and compactness.
Nowadays, it is possible to synthesize hyaluronic acid starting from biofermentative sources and obtain this precious, safe and effective ingredient.
Hyaluronic acid is used to develop innovative treatments for every skin need: add volume, smooth lines, define contour and improve the appearance of the skin.
How can the patient keep the skin looking young?
The secret for the skin to its full potential is to act on the extrinsic factors of ageing, starting from exposure to UV rays.
The use of a high protective factor cream will keep the skin looking not only young but also healthy for longer.
The other golden rules are:
• do not smoke: smoking impoverishes the natural production of hyaluronic acid
• do not drink alcohol: this accelerates skin ageing
• eat healthy food: a variety of nutrients is needed by the skin to maintain an optimal structure
• stay hydrated: the skin must be “filled” with water!
• use gentle cleansing treatments and choose moisturising and anti-age creams that suit the skin type and day and night phases.
What is a filler?
A dermal filler is a HA based medical device which is injected under the skin through a syringe in order to restore volumes and smooth lines.
The different formulations based on hyaluronic acid adapt to the different needs of each individual.
The more viscous combinations help sculpt with greater definition where the lack of tissue is most important.
The less viscous formulas adapt to the shape of the face to give volume with a more natural effect.
Additionally, HA-based dermal fillers can also be specifically developed to improve hydration in the treated areas.Find out more
How long does the treatment take?
The duration of the treatment depends on the individual need and on the purpose of the filler that the physicians are using.
Larger areas take longer, while smaller treatments are performed more quickly.
The treatment is performed with professional tools that help minimize unpleasant sensations and allow maximum precision in application.
In addition, the ergonomic syringes and the needles provided by Rose Pharma in different sizes allow the doctor to work with extreme ease, reducing waiting and setbacks.
Is it painful?
Pain perception varies from person to person.
While some may experience a mild discomfort, for others the treatment is almost imperceptible.
In any case the use of small size needles allows to adapt the treatment to the sensitivity of each one.
Which filler should I use for a patient?
Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers have a common matrix but have different characteristics, such as different degrees of cohesiveness, viscosity and elasticity.
Each specific composition has a different effect on the skin and gives a specific result, also in relation to the treated area.
Each particular need must be exclusively evaluated by a professional who is a specialist in aesthetic medicine, able to choose the best options accordingly to the unique characteristics of each patient.
How to use hyaluronic acid to get the exact result a patient wants?
Zhoabex supplies physicians with a wide range of fillers to satisfy different requests: the needs of the patients can be satisfied by physicians with specific training and expertise in the application of HA-based dermal fillers.
What benefits could a patient see after the treatment?
The patient will immediately notice smoother skin and a firmer, brighter appearance in the treated areas.
The addition of volume lifts expression and improves facial contour and symmetry.
The professional treatment gives harmony to the shape and helps to lift even the surrounding areas, with a natural result. Moreover, HA fillers also give a beneficial and deep hydration.
How long does the result last?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by the body, but hyaluronic acid-based fillers are synthetic products and are reabsorbed over months.
The skin has benefits and is revitalized by the absorption of the dermal filler, but the aesthetic effect fades over time.
Depending on the type and intensity of the treatment, the results could remain visible for months, after which the treatment can be repeated to restore natural-looking beauty.
How to use hyaluronic acid to get results that last longer?
A specialist trained in beauty treatment and expert in hyaluronic acid fillers will be able to choose the most suitable formula in order to achieve the desired results.
Zhoabex provides not only premium fillers but also professional tools such as syringes and needles and a range of pre and post-treatments that can help minimize side effects and make the application less traumatic as possible.
Can a patient use a filler at home?
Hyaluronic acid dermal filler is a safe and effective treatment that gives visible results without resorting to surgery.
However, the procedure is delicate and must be performed in an appropriate environment.
Furthermore, the treatment must be exclusively performed by a Professional Health Care Practitioner (HCP) who knows the anatomy of the face.
