Skin smoothing, Lipofilling, Lipotransfer

Treating wrinkles with injections

For our skin injection treatments we only use substances that are well tolerated. These fillers help to compensate a loss of volume in the tissue and thus smooth out the surface. The most commonly known of these are collagen, hyaluronic acid, and lactic acid based substances. These treatments last for six to twelve months.   

Possible application of fillers

Apart from smoothing out wrinkles, fillers can be applied more widely to restore the smoothness of the skin, to compensate for defects in the tissue, to increase the volume, or to remedy damaged tissue areas. Contrary to face lifts, this procedure is minimally invasive and does not put a strain on the patient. The recovery and healing time is fairly short. However, skin injection treatments cannot replace surgical interventions where medically necessary. In most cases only a combination of treatments leads to the desired results.    


Types and characteristics of fillers

Fillers can either be decomposed by the human body (resorbable) or not (non-resorbable). Non-resorbable fillers lead to permanent results, but carry a very high risk of complications. The particle size, surface structure, and consistency of fillers are further criteria that have a bearing on the risks, toleration levels, and possible fields of application. Biological fillers can be of human, animal, or bacterial origin, while others are fully synthetical.       


Lipofilling and Lipotransfer

A very effective and gentle method for skin injection treatments is the use of the patient's own fat (autologous fat) as a filler. It can be obtained through liposuction or specifically for the treatment and has to be processed for the transfer. This treatment allows for the smoothing out of wrinkles and the correction of deficits in tissue volume. Experience has shown that we can achieve lasting effects with this method.
