Contour plastics are widely used to restore, as well as increase the volume of the face in modern cosmetology. This is an injection of hyaluronic acid, which is injected both intracutaneously and subcutaneously.
Hyaluronic acid itself is a product that is in our body. Based on this, it is necessary to understand that it does not entail any consequences and is absolutely safe.
An injection is administered under local anesthesia, or rather an anesthetic cream, or an infiltration anesthesia – it is usually used in dentistry.
Contour modelingInfiltration anesthesia is mostly used to increase or correct the patient’s lips. In other cases, applying anesthetic cream is enough.
The duration of one of the procedures takes on average no more than 40 minutes, after which you can immediately see the result. After some time, the effect only increases.
In most cases, contour plastics are used to smooth the nasolabial fold, as well as:
1. Increase the volume of the lips or their correction.
2. Filling the nasolacrimal sulcus.
More recently, a technique has been developed and is already being applied, which allows to raise the eyebrows, correct the eyelids, including reducing the bags under the eyes.
We can even adjust the shape of the nose – align the back and achieve the exact profile.
The result will last for half a year to 2 years. First of all it depends on the density of the injected drug, as well as the area being corrected. With increased athletic exertion, the effect will not be long, since the drug is rapidly eliminated from the body.
When you repeat the procedure, the effect lasts much longer.
For smoothing wrinkles, including contour modeling, Juvederm, Restylane, Surgidem and Teosial are used.
All drugs include hyaluronic acid, which means that the procedure is absolutely safe.
How it works?
The drug has the appearance of a thick gel, which is injected subcutaneously or intramuscularly. It easily fills all the cavities and emptiness. After that, the skin becomes smooth, which allows to get rid of wrinkles and folds.
The drug in the necessary places remains for a long time, which allows you to look spectacular and beautiful for a long time.
On examination, the beautician can identify areas that require intervention, and hold a little consultation at which he will find out – what effect does a person want? Hyaluronic acid is quite a thick substance, and the procedure can be uncomfortable. Therefore, anesthesia is applied in order to minimize discomfort. Anesthetized, the beautician begins to gradually introduce the drug into the human body. At the same time strictly adhering to the folds or lines of wrinkles (with an increase in the volume of the lips).
The effect will be noticeable immediately after the procedure. The lips instantly increase, while the folds on the contrary decrease.
