Medical fillers are regarded as one of the most efficient ways of treating facial wrinkles. This treatment became immensely popular in a short amount of time and nowadays, various pharmaceutical companies are racing to provide us most modern and advanced versions of this product. However, there is a good reason why these drugs are so successful. Excellent results, negligible side effects and efficient treatment made cosmetic fillers the best procedure for lower areas of the face.

                As we get older, loss of nutritive substances starts affecting our appearance. In time, this will translate into course and dry skin and different imperfections will start to show such as folds and wrinkles. Organism is no longer able to reproduce collagen which is a crucial protein within dermis. Also, hyaluronic acid is being diminished, which has important role of keeping water inside the skin. At the end of the day we will be left with various esthetic issues that we need to deal with. Luckily for us, products such as Ellanse are great solution to our problem.

                Drugs that are used for this therapy are based on substances very similar to those that are produced within our own biological system. In fact, Doctor Medica team regards fillers as a supplemental therapy. They do not cause severe side effects (if any at all) and they do not leave any type of harmful substance that will linger within the body for a long period of time. Having this in mind, it is safe to say that cosmetic fillers have an upper hand over botox or esthetic surgeries.

                Like in many other medical procedures, doctor’s role is crucial during this intervention. Although the process can be regarded as a routine one, there can always be some problems caused due to doctor’s lack of skill. This can be especially seen when fillers are used to treat neck and cleavage area. Most of medical professionals will avoid this area all together. However, if you find a doctor who is willing to perform this treatment, make sure that he is qualified enough. Otherwise, standard procedures that include area around lips, jaw, cheeks are regarded as quite normal and without high risk.

                Entire procedure lasts for 10 minutes. During that time, doctor will inject Ellanse in a few precise spots on patient’s face, restoring natural substances to the skin. Most of the drugs have anesthetics inside of them so the therapy is painless. There are certain rules that a patient needs to follow. After treatment it is best if you apply cold pack on face so there won’t be any swelling. Any activity or product that will dehydrate your face or irritate it is strictly forbidden. The list includes alcohol, exercises and various creams and lotions.

                Before administering Ellanse, a patient needs to tell his doctor if he has any infection or inflammation, if he had recent facial treatment, if he is expecting a child or breastfeeding. All of these can interact with the drug in a negative way and cause unforeseen issues to patient’s face.
