Wrinkle Injections - Process

 The injection of filling substances is usually performed as an out-patient procedure. Because of the almost pain-free nature of the procedure, anaesthesia is not necessary.
After any necessary markings have been made on the appropriate skin locations, the doctor injects the substance under the wrinkles using a thin needle. After the completion of treatment, the affected skin region is cooled. The entire procedure lasts 15-30 minutes.
  If you have decided to undergo wrinkle correction via autologous fat injection, this will be removed from another inconspicuous place on your body (e.g. inside of the knee, navel region, or posterior crease) in advance under local anaesthesia. After the corresponding preparation of the fat, it is injected using a syringe. The fat is typically incorporated by the body quickly and without incident; allergic reactions should not be expected.

Wrinkle Injections - Preparation

  You doctor will clarify the possible filling substances and methods in detail in a preliminary conversation. You are not a suitable candidate for a wrinkle injection if you suffer from chronic or acute skin diseases. The treatment is furthermore not appropriate for patients with a large amount of excess sagging skin in the area of the wrinkles to be corrected.
 If you are to undergo wrinkle injections using collagen, an allergy test should be conducted four weeks prior to treatment in order to rule out incompatibility reactions. Your face should be cleansed on the day of the procedure and free of cosmetics. Please refrain from taking anticoagulant medications such as aspirin in the two weeks before the procedure. Preparatory measures also depend on your individual situation and should be discussed with your doctor in detail.

Wrinkle Injections - Methods

As far as the treatment process is concerned, wrinkle correction via injection is similar to wrinkle correction procedures with botulinum toxin, e.g. botox®. Only the active mechanism is different, which is why different substances are also injected. Whereas treatment using botulinum toxin, e.g. botox®, involves inhibiting the contraction of the muscles in order to smooth wrinkles, wrinkle injection using tissue filler achieves the smoothing of wrinkles by filling slackened parts of the skin, providing support for the tissue, or increasing the amount of moisture and elasticity in the skin through the injected material.

Possible tissue fillers used for this procedure are natural substances known as bio-implants, synthetic preparations, or one's own body fat. The described substances are injected under the wrinkles using fine needles under local anaesthesia; autologous fat (fat from one's own body) is removed from a separate spot on the body in advance via suction. Among the most commonly used bio-implants are collagen and hyaluronan; synthetic polylactic acid is also often inserted.

Collagen is a natural protein taken from animal skin that is cleansed and prepared for injection using a special process. Once it is injected under the wrinkles, it binds itself to the body's own collagen, fills up slackened skin parts, and forms a natural protective framework for the surrounding tissue. Swelling after the procedure generally goes down within 24 hours. Hyaluranon is what is called a natural polysaccharyl, which is responsible for the lubrication and elasticity of the skin. With increasing age, hyaluranon content in the skin decreases; this can be compensated through the injection of colorless gel in some cases, thus raising sunken skin tissue.

Crystalline polylactic acid likewise effects an increase in the volume of collagen fibres and stimulates the formation of new fibres, which ultimately leads to a soft buildup of tissue and resulting mitigation of wrinkles.
In order to obtain the most complete results, it may be necessary, depending on the characteristics of the wrinkles, to repeat the treatment involving the above-mentioned filling substances at intervals of 1-2 weeks. For injections of polylactic acid, there should be at least four weeks between treatments.

"Frown lines" (glabellar wrinkles) on the forehead as well as folds between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds) can also typically be treated via the injection of autologous fat. The fat previously removed from another spot on the body under local anaesthesia is injected, thus achieving increased volume and tautening of the skin.

Wrinkle Injections - Introduction

It is quite normal, with increasing age, for wrinkles to form in the face. The causes of this are slackening of elastic fibers and skin fat as well as the deterioration of connective tissue.

These processes are not reversible in a natural way. In the case of wrinkles, aesthetic dermatology offers the possibility of wrinkle injections using various types of tissue filler which is injected into the wrinkles. The influence of age on one's external appearance is thus correctable on an individual basis. Depending on the filling material, the results may be temporary or permanent.
