Hyaluronic fillers in dental medicine
There has been an increase in the demand for non-invasive corrective anti-aging treatments and it is the hyaluronic acid that has become indispensable in order to achieve complete facial harmony without the use of invasive surgical procedures.
What are hyaluronic acid fillers and how do they work?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is an integral part of the intercellular substance, recognized by the body. Depending on the density of the fillers, their effect lasts from 9 months to 2 years.
The application of hyaluronic acid smooths wrinkles and rejuvenates the skin, which loses its elasticity and shine over the years. The notion that the application of hyaluronic acid should be started at a later age is gradually changing because at the age of 25-30 hyaluronic acid is injected preventively, to help the skin keep its youthful appearance.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are applied to fill the wrinkles around the mouth, on the chin and forehead, and to fill the lips themselves. The results of this kind of treatments are visible immediately, but the full effect occurs about two weeks after the application.
In the market there are many different hyaluronic acid filler consistencies so their prices and effects differ. However, prices range from €300 upward.
Botox in dental medicine
When it comes to Botox, most patients think of something dangerous and unnatural. In fact, Botox is a purified protein from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria and is used as a therapeutic tool in some fields of medicine. In this case it is used to reduce the muscle activity in the forehead and around the eyes thereby minimizing wrinkles.
Botox can be used for an unlimited number of times in adequate time intervals with no health hazards. The treatment itself is painless and the results are visible in a few days. The effect lasts from 4 to 10 months, after which it can be repeated. When applying Botox, it is essential to use registered products, confirmed by the relevant medical services.
