HYALURONIC ACID and FILLER in Geneva - Explanations and Prices?
- Hyaluronic acid can be more or less crosslinked, more or less concentrated.
Examples: Restylane, juvederm, Revanesse, Stylage, Filorga, etc….
Hyaluronic acid, an essential product of the various Fillers, is a Glycosaminoglycan, a high molecular weight polysaccharide naturally present and identical in all living organisms without species or tissue specificity. Its chemical structure is invariable, always the same whatever the source. It is synthesized by fibroblasts and keratinocytes, cells of the human body, especially of the skin.
56% of hyaluronic acid is in the skin which contains about 7 g for an adult of 60 kg. It has hygroscopic and viscoelastic properties, but gradually decreases with age, causing dry skin of wrinkles and fine lines.
The half-life of hyaluronic acid is very short 24 to 48 h, to ensure a lasting effect of increase in the volume of tissues, it must be modified by crosslinking or stabilizing it (connection between 2 molecules). The more or less crosslinked hyaluronic acid can thus be injected at different dermo-epidermal levels allowing to fill wrinkles, depressions and improve the quality of the skin.
The special feature of the filler makes it possible to treat all areas of the face, therefore all wrinkles, fine lines and depressions. Injections are therefore carried out on wrinkles, fine lines, thick or thin skin, in the lips, forehead, perioral, etc. The most cross-linked products allow the face to be reshaped (volumizers). The advantage of hyaluronic acid is its extreme safety of use

RADIESSE - Other injectable product
The Radiesse is an injectable filler to correct wrinkles, furrows and loss of facial volume. This product is said to be 100% biocompatible and biodegradable, but classified as slow-absorbing products. This product is composed of a structure of calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel to facilitate injection. The texture of Radiesse gives it a supple and natural appearance and remains in place for several months or even years.
The Radiesse acts originally as a filling of the wrinkle or the lost volume. The macrophages will then dissolve the aqueous transport gel and the stimulated fibroblasts will make collagen. The new collagen tissue will fix the calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres: the hollow of wrinkles or lost volumes are then filled. After several months (15 to 18) the particles degrade and are phagocytosed (eaten) and metabolized by macrophages.
It is a filling product used in depth and not for superficial wrinkles, especially on areas of thin skin.
There are 3 major indications for the Radiesse:
- restitution of the volume of the cheekbones
- marked nasolabial folds that are not always corrected enough by hyaluronic acid
- nose reshaping. it is the perfect non-surgical solution to correct irregularities or asymmetries or even saddles
It is a slow-absorbing product. After 15 to 18 months, the particles of calcium hydroxyapatite disintegrate and are completely metabolized. The effect of Radiesse lasts 12 to 18 months in most patients, but the results are variable depending on age, skin type, lifestyle (smoker, sun ...).
What are the advantages of Radiesse?
Beautification treatment, non-surgical correction.
An immediate response to the aesthetic needs of the face which lasts between 1 and a half and 2 years.
A 100% biocompatible and biodegradable correction.
