How HAFILLER® is made?

Implant for intra-dermal injection of HAFILLER® series is a sterile, isotonic, pyrogen-free, viscous-elastic clear gel made from highly purified stabilized non-animal cross-linked hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid in HAFILLER® fillers is produced through biofermentation and is recommended for intra-dermal injection in the facial area, for rejuvenation of any skin areas, as well as the correction of age-related changes.

Concentration of sodium hyaluronate in all fillers is 24 mg/ml.

The molecular weight is approximately 10 million Daltons.

How HAFILLER® works?

With ageing, there is a decrease of the hyaluronic acid concentration in the skin. As a result, the skin loses its elasticity and tone. This reduces skin firmness and wrinkles appear. HAFILLER® implant injections into skin tissue restore the extracellular matrix and hydration due to articulated hydrophilic properties of hyaluronic acid. This results in the restoration of skin elasticity and firmness. Small wrinkles are smoothed away and skin looks younger.

Also hyaluronic acid has ability to stimulate collagen synthesis and to bind free radicals, slowing the ageing of skin.

Hyaluronic acid degradation is performed enzymatically with the use of endogenous enzyme hyaluronidase.

HAFILLER® implant is a substitute for endogenous hyaluronic acid in the extracellular matrix, which compensates for losses due to skin ageing. HAFILLER® implant is designed for injection into surface, medium, deep dermis, as well as into the hypodermis.

What are advantages of HAFILLER®?

  • The ductility and toughness of the drug.
  • Homogeneous distribution in tissues.
  • High levels of patient satisfaction after the procedure.
  • Minor trauma during the manipulation.

Are HAFILLER® products are bio-compable?

The chemical structure of hyaluronic acid is identical, no matter how it was produced. The structure is the same for all species, thus HAFILLER® hyaluronic acid implants do not cause any adverse  reactions related to the incompatibility of the medicine with the body. Exceptions are contraindications for manipulation.

Technology of injection

Injections can be performed by applying the point injection technique or tunnel”uinjection. When using the technique of point injection small amounts of HAFILLER® implant are injected along the contour of the wrinkle with a few separate punctures. When using the technique of tunnel injections”uneedle is held through the puncture along the wrinkle andHAfiller”®fimplant is homogeneously introduced after needle removal.

The choice of technique of injection depends on type and intensity of wrinkles/folds.

It is recommended to use HAFILLER® cross-implant technique in order to treat large areas of the face for optimal anti-ageing effect. The specific technique is chosen according to the area of the skin and the treatment goals.

To prevent the formation of bands one should control that HAFILLER® implant is distributed homogeneously.

Wrinkles that have already been subjected to smoothing do not need to be corrected again. After injecting it is necessary to massage the injection site. It is recommended to cool the injection site for 10 minutes after the procedure.

What is the role of hyaluronic acid?

In the course of time, most people start to notice minor changes in their appearance and begin to wonder – why the skin changes and why is it different from what it used to be?

While some people are well-informed what consequences permanent facial expression, hormonal changes, lifestyle or permanently being in direct sun can lead to, but the others are absolutely unaware of the consequences of neglect to the appearance and importance of hyaluronic acid in modern life.

In the course of time our skin is requiring more cautious and thoughtful attitude. Our body is gradually losing reserves of hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for preservation and maintenance the moisture in our skin. Gradual loss of hyaluronic acid is a result of ageing, negative influence of the environment, unhealthy lifestyle and stress as well.

Hyaluronic acid nourishes our skin and provides/creates certain volume in soft-tissue. Maintenance of moisture, volume and compliance – these are the main components of a young and healthy appearance.

Decrease of hyaluronic acid level and collagen in the body leads to lowering of skin support structure strength, volume of the skin. All these signs of skin ageing lead to soft-tissue sagging and wrinkling. The skin begins to look thinner and less sleek covered with wrinkles and small lines.

What hyaluronic acid is?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural polysaccharide, which is an important building block of skin, subcutaneous cellular tissue, connective cellular tissue, synovial membrane, and also synovial fluid, and is related to a few substances that are chemically identical for all living beings.

Then, a process of anaesthesia is carried out (local anaesthesia, blockade anaesthesia). The anaesthesia method selection is individual, the doctor chooses the method of anaesthesia, which is acceptable and which suits a particular area of gel injection best. Each zone has its own pain limit during implant injection, thus the choice of anaesthesia is quite individual and is selected by the direct medical examination before the manipulation.

What to avoid before manipulation?

    to heat (e.g. solarium or being in direct sun) and to cold.
  • During the week after the manipulation, avoid use of aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, tutsan, as well as a higher dose of vitamin E. The components of these medicines may increase bruising.

Rarely at the injection site one can notice bands and swelling, which disappear within 2-4 weeks. In rare cases, there is itching and skin discoloration.

Allergic reactions develop very rarely, as HAFILLER® implant is identical to the hyaluronic acid of the human body. In the case of an inflammatory reaction, the patient is recommended to consult a doctor, who will decide whether any treatment is necessary.

How long does the effect last?

If all the requirements after the procedure are followed, the effect can last up to 16 months, depending on the filler and an area subject to correction.

If you want to prolong the effect of the manipulation, you can sign up for additional correction.
