Today, the most commonly used dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally present substance in the human body. It is most densely concentrated in the vitreous body of the eye and in the joints. The hyaluronic acid used for medical and cosmetic purposes is produced in sterile conditions, either by laboratory grown microorganisms or extracted from the roosters’ comb. Except for its wide use in facial esthetics, hyaluronic acid is used for treating osteoarthritis and wound and burn injuries; it is also used in eye and vocal fold surgery. There are several types of hyaluronic acid, each of which has different indications: skin rehydration (mesotherapy), superficial smoothing of fine facial lines, filling deep wrinkles, lip augmentation and face contouring.
Once a cosmetic dental treatment, usually a smile makeover, has been conducted, patients often opt for an additional procedure that would complete their new and improved appearance.
The results of injecting dermal fillers are visible immediately – deep wrinkles are gone and the lips appear fuller and younger.
Facial rejuvenation or mesotherapy is conducted using a dermaroller or by injecting the product through a series of small punctures. This is called the biologic method because it is focused on stimulating the organism to naturally regenerate the treated area. It triggers our fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, making our skin shinier and more elastic. The best results are achieved by adding nutritive and hydrating products, such as vitamin cocktails or hyaluronic acid, to our treatment.
For best results, we recommend repeating mesotherapy three times in the course of one month.
The procedure includes disinfecting the surface of the face, applying a topical anesthetic and treating the face with a dermaroller accompanied by a vitamin cocktail or low-concentration hyaluronic acid.
Some redness of the skin after the treatment is normal. The patient should not wear makeup on the day of the treatment. He/she is advised not to stay in direct sunlight, go to the sauna or practice sports for at least 12 h after the treatment. He/she should also avoid facial peelings or the epilation/depilation of the treated area.
Botox is a purified natural protein which has been used in medicine for decades. This non-surgical esthetic procedure is the most popular and efficient method of facial rejuvenation and contouring.
After applying a topical anesthetic, Botox is injected into the treated area using a very fine syringe. It blocks the pathways between nerve signals and facial muscles. It relaxes the treated muscle, thus smoothing the overlying skin. The results of Botox treatment are visible within days and can last up to 6 months. Given the fact that its effects are temporary, Botox is considered to be the safest facial rejuvenation treatment. Permanent side-effects and allergic reactions have never been recorded.

Lip augmentation is a process of injecting hyaluronic acid fillers into the area of the lips in order to enhance their volume and make them more harmonious with the rest of the face. Aging causes the loss of facial muscle tone and the thinning of subcutaneous fat, which leaves our lips thinner and more wrinkled, giving our faces cheerless or strict expressions. Even a minimal lip augmentation can make a face look significantly younger.
