Fillers containing hyaluronic acid are a great option for treating and filling deeper lines of the face and hands and shaping lips. An individual treatment plan will be worked out in your personal consultation.
Since the hyaluronic acid used is similar to the body’s own hyaluronic acid, it will be reabsorbed within time; depending on the thickness of the gel this will be over a 6-18 month’s period. For that reason, the treatment needs to be repeated after some time. But what at first may sound like a disadvantage, is basically an advantage! Using a substance that is like the body’s own, that the body is even metabolising and reabsorbing, there will be no harm or permanent damage caused.
The permanent fillers used in the past (e.g. Bio-alcamid, silicone, etc.) brought long term problems. Many patients who were injected with these products ten or twenty years ago are now asking for solutions to ensuing problems. Dr. Hamers will discuss individualised treatment options in a personal consultation.
