Aesthetic medicine – Volumizer

The Volumizer Aesthetic Medicine in Nice

When we study in a ” radiological ” way the ageing of the face, we observe the repeated contractions of the muscles of the face leading to a dispersion downwards and towards the sides of the fat of the face and neck.

This will result in a loss of volume in the lips, chin, nasolabial fold and bitterness fold. The skin becomes thinner and thinner and wrinkles.

Doctor Philippe Kestemont, practising aesthetic medicine in Nice, hyaluronic acid injection in Nice will be able to help you and offer you the appropriate solution.

Aesthetic medicine in Nice

To know

The treatment is carried out in 4 parts at medical level:
1 – The attenuation of muscle contractions by botulinum toxin (botox).
2 – Restoration of volume by injections of the patient’s own fat, lipostructure, hyaluronic acid-based volumising products, or calcium derivatives.

There are two types of products, resorbable and permanent.

It is imperative that injections on the face are only based on resorbable products. Since nothing can stop the passage of time, a treated wrinkle will systematically be next to another wrinkle which will appear in the same area a few months later. We will therefore have to reinject products into these wrinkles regularly, once or twice a year. Consequently, there is no advantage in having so-called permanent products injected, whose clinical effects are not permanent. Moreover, if these permanent products were to trigger an allergic reaction, it would also be permanent, which would be very difficult to treat. There is therefore more to lose than to gain with these so-called permanent products.

On the other hand, hyaluronic acids (Juverderm, Glytone, Restylane, Perlane etc…) and calcium derivatives (Radiesse) are used with real safety for your face, and their duration of action varies from 6 to 24 months.
