Until recently, most of the surgeons saw the face aging as a problem of excess tissues. Therefore, surgery is designed to remove the “excess” of tissue. However, if you really study the aged face you will realize that much of what we perceive as facial aging has a lot to do with the loss of volume. The face deflates like a balloon losing air, as a grape becomes a raisin, the face loses its force as the same time that skin thins and fat is lost.

There is also another change; the skin of the face is supported to the underlying bone in certain areas by ligaments. In these areas of fixation, there is a particular loss of volume, where we can see the development of deep furrows and wrinkles. That is why currently is understood that the main problem is the loss of volume in the furrow.

It is deducted that the solution is to provide volume. Here is where hyaluronic acid plays its role as the filler product more secublogre and effective.

Which is the most effective and secure filler?

Each filler has its drawbacks, but we totally oppose the injection of any permanent or nonabsorbent material in face.

Nonabsorbent materials (permanent) are a small gain of time for a long time of trouble, mainly because in case of any problems in the future, there is no way to extract this material.

The new hyaluronic acids have revolutionized this field and, in my opinion, are the first filler materials more effective and safe. Besides, it is really important to inform that we only use Juvederm and Restylane products, the safest and most prestigious brands.

And, what is?

These transparent and crystalline gels of hyaluronic acid are natural molecules of sugars that already exist in our body, especially in the joints.

These can give shape and sculpt in the tissues keeping its effect for 10 to 12 months with the conventional hyaluronic acids, or up to 2 years with the new acids.Since the face changes as time passes, this allows us to adapt the treatment gradually to the changes that have taken place in our face.

What areas can be treated?

Many facial areas can be improved.

The first hyaluronic acid use of , and still the most commonly done, is the area around the mouth, that is to say, NASOGENIAN FURROW, LIPS, CHEEKBONES, MARIONETTE LINES…

What about the eye area? The restoration of the area around the eye is very delicate. In fact, the standard response is that it is very difficult to treat the ocular area or that it cannot be done. It is possible with hyaluronic acid, let’s see why…

Our technique, LAMLE TECHNIQUE

The acronym LAMLE comes from Ligament Attenuation Modification by Layered Expansion.

This technique was developed by Dr. Goldberg at the UCLA University where Dr. Guilarte had the opportunity to learn it.

This technique consists of small threads ultra-fine of hyaluronic acid that are staggered to creating an artistic form/sculpture of the deflated areas which are around the ligaments.

The injection of hyaluronic acid, filler, by using this technique gives us a better result, being less obvious the injection of filler in any of the treated areas.

Does it hurt?

The procedure is performed in the consultation room without anaesthesia, since it is not required because it is perfectly tolerable. There may be some sense of discomfort, in which case we will apply local anaesthesia. However, the great advantage is that the new hyaluronic acids are accompanied by local anaesthesia.

Where it can be perform?

There are different areas for improvement with hyaluronic acid:

  • Lips
  • Nasogenian furrow
  • Jaw line
  • Dark circles and aging orbital

Botox can be used as an alternative therapy…Google
