Gentle wrinkle treatment with hyaluronic acid

Wrinkle treatment with hylauronic acid filler at the Noah Clinic

Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the body. It is used wherever large amounts of water need to be bound - for example in the joints, where it ensures smooth functioning, but also in the connective tissue. With increasing age, however, the body's own production of hyaluron decreases. As a result, the joints are less well supplied - especially if arthrosis is added to the mix, and our skin also loses moisture and elasticity - wrinkles appear. By the age of 60, we still have about 10 percent of the original amount of hyaluron in our body. In the field of aesthetics, hyaluronic acid can be injected into the skin as a filler within the framework of a wrinkle injection.

Which wrinkles can be injected with hyaluronic acid?

At the Noahklinik Kassel, we treat both fine wrinkles and deeper wrinkles on the face with hylauron. The aim of wrinkle treatment using fillers is to reduce the depth of wrinkles and to restore moisture to the skin. Injections of the active ingredient are particularly suitable for the following indications

  • Creases
  • first lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Wrinkles around the lips
  • horizontal furrows
In addition, hyaluronic acid can be used to increase volume. This is because with increasing age of the patient, the subcutaneous fatty tissue decreases and certain areas appear sunken. Moisturisation of the skin is also possible, as hyaluron binds water in the tissue. This results in a fresh skin appearance. The filler is less suitable for strong mimic wrinkles that develop due to the activity of muscles - in this case Botox® usually the better alternative.

During the preliminary examination and consultation, we will explain to you which method is most suitable for you. 

Wrinkle treatment with hyaluronic acid Noahklinik Kassel

We always perform wrinkle treatment after a thorough consultation. The treating doctor first checks whether wrinkle injections with fillers will lead to the desired result. The patient's wishes are decisive here. Side effects or even allergic reactions are very rare with this treatment. Although the active ingredient is usually synthetic hyaluron, it is very close to the body's own substance. 

The hyaluron is injected into the skin or the respective wrinkle with a very fine syringe. Local anaesthesia is usually not necessary, as there is hardly any pain. The duration of the wrinkle injection in the clinic of Professor Dr. Ernst Magnus Noah in Kassel depends on the size of the area and can take from a few minutes to an hour. After the treatment, the skin should be gently cooled to avoid bruising.

Treatment type:Minimally invasive surgery
Duration:approx. 1 hour

When does the injection take effect and how long does the effect last?

You can see the result of the wrinkle injection immediately after the treatment. This is because the hyaluron reliably fills wrinkles in the face. In the following days, the effect of the wrinkle treatment can continue to unfold. The effect of the treatment lasts between six and 18 months. This varies from patient to patient, but the preparation used also has an influence.

There is strongly cross-linked and less cross-linked hyaluronic acid. In the deeper skin layers - i.e. for deep wrinkles - more strongly cross-linked hyaluronic acid is used, which has a more effective volume effect and also lasts longer. The more superficial the wrinkles to be treated, the thinner and less cross-linked the hyaluron used. In aesthetic medicine at the Noahklinik Kassel, we only use high-quality fillers that have been tested in many studies and found to be safe. This minimises the risk of side effects. After the wrinkle injection, the body gradually breaks down the filler. Subsequently, a new wrinkle treatment can be followed to maintain the result.

Costs of a wrinkle injection with hyaluronic acid in Kassel

Similar to a treatment with Botox®, we cannot quote a fixed price for wrinkle treatment with hylauron. The prices vary depending on the effort and size of the area. A guideline here is about 300 euros (plus VAT), which you have to plan for per injection.

Advantages of minimally invasive wrinkle treatment

In contrast to major procedures performed by Plastic Surgery Kassel, such as a Facelift or SMAS lifting, the healing time after a filler therapy is very short. In addition, pain, costs and downtime are low. On the other hand, injections for wrinkle treatment also have their limits. If the skin is already very saggy, surgical interventions are often the better alternative.

Other wrinkle treatments at the Noahklinik Kassel: Own fat and Botox®

As an alternative to hyaluronic acid injections, we also offer wrinkle injections with Botox® or autologous fat in our practice in the course of aesthetics. Botox® is particularly suitable for wrinkles that arise due to muscle activity - so-called mimic wrinkles. Botulinum toxin inhibits the transmission of stimuli between the muscles. Our experienced doctors achieve facial wrinkle smoothing with this method without disturbing the patient's natural facial expression. 

An alternative to this is a treatment with the patient's own fat, which we use against wrinkles. The body's own fat cells are removed by means of a syringe, prepared and injected into the corresponding areas. Our doctors will be happy to advise you individually on the possibilities of wrinkle injections and skin-rejuvenating treatments using minimally invasive injections.
