Hyaluronic Acid

Why Choose Temporary Injection Implants (Hyaluronic Acid)?

Injectable implants ​or Fillers are the best method for eliminating deep wrinkles in the face, but also an excellent form of treatment to improve the volume of areas that you are concerned with and possibly lost over time. These are non-invasive curative treatments that are performed with or without local anesthesia.

Hyaluronic Acid

Mr. Benetatos uses only one of the leading hyaluronic acid classes, Allergan’s Juvederm, approved by the American Medicines Agency for Human Application (FDA Approval). Hyaluronic Acid, although it is an artificial product, however, is a natural component of the skin and contains no animal constituents, unlike Collagen, resulting in it being totally hypoallergenic and devoid of side effects. It is completely safe, absorbed slowly by the skin and its duration ranges from six to twelve months. There are several types / densities of hyaluronic acid that are used for different purposes. The thinner the hyaluronic acid is, the better it is for the treatment of fine wrinkles, however, its duration is of short duration. In contrast, thicker hyaluronic / thicker are ideal for deeper infusions and more volume. Within the range of Juvederm, the following products are available:

Juvederm Ultra 2 Delicate Prosthetic for the improvement of fine wrinkles.
Juvederm Ultra 3 Ideal for reducing wrinkles in nasopharyngeal grooves and some deeper lines.
Juvederm Ultra 4 More viscous additive for longer-lasting wrinkle reduction effect.
Juvederm Voluma Additive for volume of cheekbones in depth.

Hyaluronic acid is injected under the skin and the procedure is carried out in the Doctor’s office of Constantine Benetatos. It usually lasts between fifteen and thirty (15 to 30) minutes, and in some cases local anesthetic is also used. Juvederm contains a small amount of local anesthetic and therefore its use is far more painless than other similar products.
