Facial Line & Wrinkle Reduction

Aquamid is not used to minimize facial wrinkles or fine lines- the lines and small wrinkles are found in the dermis and can be addressed by using a dermal filler, like Hyaluronic Acid. So, if Aquamid isn’t used to minimize the fine facial lines and wrinkles in the face, why do we have this section on our website?

Aquamid plays a key role in assisting to minimize the lines, folds and wrinkles on the face. Aquamid is not injected into the dermis where facial wrinkles and facial lines are found, Aquamid injected slightly deeper. Aquamid acts like a ‘support structure’ to minimize the deeper folds and lines in the face. As the deeper lines and folds are minimized with Aquamid , a dermal filler- like Hyaluronic Acid- can be used to address the smaller lines and wrinkles found in the dermis.

An example- Aquamid can be used to add volume to the cheeks and minimize the naso-labial folds, providing a fuller cheek and minimizing the deep folds in the naso-labial area. A Hyaluronic Acid could be injected to minimizes the small lines and wrinkles that be found around the corner of the mouth and lips- the result can be a patient that has restored facial volume in the cheeks, minimal deep folds in the naso-labial area from the Aquamid and a reduction of the fine lines and wrinkles as a result of the Hyaluronic Acid.
