Fine and medium sized wrinkels can be effectively treated through a replenishment of interconnected hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance of the human body and therefore it is tolerated by tissue. Hyaluronic acid has two functions.
1. It is an important skin substance of the fascia and important for skin elasticity. The older one gets, the less hyaluronic acid is built into the skin, which leads to wrinkles.
2. Hyaluronic acid binds water in the skin and hereby prevents skin dehydration.
Restylane (product name of the haluronic acid used by Dr. Feinendegen) therefore leads to an immediate visible amelioration of skin quality. The production of restylane takes place in special certified laboratories and under rigorous sterile conditions. If neccessary different textures of the hyaluronic acid are available.
As with the botulinum injections, the skin is cooled with ice for pain relief prior to the puncture.
