How injectable fillings work ?

If you want to give yourself a younger look, correct imperfections, grooves and depressions, fill and smooth fine wrinkles on the face and neck, increase the volume of cheeks, cheekbones, redraw facial contours, plump lips and moisturize the skin.

As a result, the line or fold seems to have practically disappeared, unlike botulinum toxin injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle. The injectable hyaluronic acid skin filling products, non-allergenic and completely absorbable, is the ideal treatment, because of its compatibility with the human body. Hyaluronic acid is a hydrophilic substance naturally present in the body and skin, but which becomes scarcer with age, promoting dry skin.

It is not necessary to over-correct during the first session and it is preferable to see the surgeon again for a possible retouching. Some research shows that repeated injections can help stimulate the body’s own natural production of collagen.

By choosing a qualified and competent practitioner, trained in this type of treatment, you limit these risks as much as possible without however completely eliminating them. In any case, if you have any concerns after these injections, do not hesitate to contact the plastic and aesthetic surgeon.

Possible side effects of hyaluronic acid

— Redness

— Slight swelling of injection site

— Hematomas

These disadvantages do not last very long and can be easily hidden.

Treatment contraindications

Certain pathological conditions may be contraindications to treatment (autoimmune diseases, allergies, inflammatory or infectious problems, etc.).

Injectable products : Botulinum toxin

What are the benefits of combined treatments?

Botulinum toxin has no effect to increase volumes, so it is not a filling like filling injections. Botulinum toxin injections relax muscles on wrinkles caused by muscle contraction. This combined technique combining filling injections allows to achieve an optimal result.

— Contraction of the tail of the eyebrow (transient)

Contraindications to treatment

These disadvantages are temporary. Some medical conditions may be contraindications to treatment that are not suitable for pregnant women or patients with neuromuscular disorders. Do not rub or massage areas treated with botulinum toxin after wrinkle treatment, to prevent the botulinum toxin from migrating to another area of your face.

  • You may notice results in a few days, but it can take up to a week to see the full effect of the treatment.
  • When the effects of botulinum toxin begin to fade, your muscle reactions and wrinkles will reappear.

Smoking cessation is strongly recommended. For vaporizers, if the liquids of your electronic cigarette contain nicotine which is vasoconstrictor and even if there is no tar, these products are to be avoided.

What are the possible complications following hyaluronic acid injections?

Complications of filling and volumetry are extremely rare:

Some cases have been described of persistent redness for several weeks, skin abscess or necrosis, located at an injection site.

Injectable products: possible complications known to date are as follows:

Local-regional complications:

  • Headaches: they may be present during the first injections and disappear after a few hours to a few days.
  • Ptosis of the eyebrows: the injection of the forehead can cause a slight descent of the eyebrows. This descent is usually due to the fact that the eyebrows were already in the low position before the injection. This slight lowering of the eyebrows usually regresses in a few weeks.
  • Eyelid ptosis: the injection of the lion’s wrinkles can cause a partial fall of the upper eyelid which can last 4 to 8 weeks. It is rare (less than 1% of cases), and always disappears beyond a few weeks.
  • Sore or smiling and swallowing: injection into the lips may cause discomfort to the smile or small abnormal movements. Neck injection may cause difficulty swallowing.
  • Dry eyes: by reducing tear secretion, which can lead to keratitis, especially in patients wearing contact lenses (care should be taken in this case to properly hydrate the cornea).
  • Paradoxical muscle contraction and facial expression disorders: in the days following injection, the treated muscles may present some paradoxical movements (spontaneous contractions) without gravity.

General complications:

They are quite exceptional.

  • Allergic reaction: rash, hives, general allergic reaction
  • Nausal, dizziness
  • Tiredness, fever, flu syndrome
  • Dry skin or dry mouth

In addition to these known risks, there are unpredictability of duration and aspects, and finally, exceptional risks, even unknown risks inherent in any medical procedure. All in all, we must not overestimate the risks, but simply become aware that a medical-surgical act, even a seemingly simple one, always involves a small proportion of risks. Using a qualified practitioner ensures that they have the training and skills required to avoid these complications, or treat them effectively if necessary.
