Increasing the cheek volume, correction of deep under eye circles
Hyaluronic dermal fillers have become the gold standard in the last ten years when it comes to improving the condition of the skin, filling facial wrinkles, adjusting the contours of the face oval and increasing the cheek volume. There are several reasons for the large increase in the popularity of fillers – one of them is that this treatment is non-surgical, therefore less risks for side effects occur. Other reasons are their compatibility and biodegradation inside the skin, the ease of application and slight pain at injection place. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance which has a large share in building the extracellular space of our skin, where it plays an important role in water balance as well as in healing precisely because it provides good hydration.
About the procedure
Using hyaluronic dermal fillers, the gaps between collagen fibres which are in extracellular space are filled evenly, and the skin is moisturized intensively. Also, collagen (one of the most important albumins in the skin which determines the elasticity of the skin) synthesis is stimulated, its decay is slowed down and the skin starts to produce its own hyaluronic acid, which means that new dermal fibres are formed. Thick consistency hyaluronic dermal fillers are resistant to deformations and create the volume that is needed. They are chosen to increase the cheek volume, adjust contours of the face oval, reduce wrinkles on nasal and lip area, and to correct deep under eye circles. The loss of a tissue volume on the cheeks or chin is restored during this treatment, so you get the effect of a gently lifted skin. For better elasticity of the skin the treatment can be performed using the needle which does not traumatize the skin. Usually 3 or 6 injections are injected into the deep layers of the skin on one cheek area, which helps achieve desired results. The effect is visible right after the treatment and depending on the type of preparation – it can remain for about 1 or 2 years.

The possibility of an allergic reaction is extremely small, because fillers contain albumin, which is already in the human body, and over time the product breaks down completely, therefore it’s incredibly safe to use.
