Face Lift Non-Surgical - Hyalaform ™

 

Introduction

Hylaform® Gel is based on a natural substance called hyaluron, which is a polysaccharide found in the skin of the body. It can help to smooth away lines or wrinkles and is an alternative to Collagen Replacement Therapy™. No test dose is required and treatment can start immediately. Allergic reactions are unlikely due to the similarity to the body's own hyaluron.

The treatment

It is performed as an office procedure and takes around 45 minutes depending on the area treated. A local anaesthetic cream can be helpful to numb the skin beforehand. A series of small injections with a very fine needle are given in the area treated. The result is instantaneous.

Side-effects and after-care

The area can be red for 72 hours afterward and bruising can occur. This can easily be concealed with cosmetics. Top-up treatments are usually required after 3 to 6 months. It can be used in conjunction with other injectables like Botox® or Collagen Replacement Therapy™.
