CAN I COMBINE BBL PHOTO REJUVENATION, FRACTIONAL REJUVENATION WITH FILLERS?
Contouring is a common technique, is it combined with photo-rejuvenation, fractional rejuvenation?
Non-invasive facial rejuvenation procedures are gaining popularity in cosmetology practice. Fillers and / or fractional laser rejuvenation and photo rejuvenation BBL are the option of choice for most patients who want to improve the contour of the face and rejuvenate the skin without surgery. More than half of the patients who received filers repeat these procedures within a year. The market for such procedures is dynamically growing.
Soft tissue fillers such as hyaluronic acid (HA), calcium hydroxyapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid are used to correct facial volume and fill in wrinkles by direct injection into areas with a volume deficit and into “furrows”. They stimulate fibroblasts and lead to the synthesis of new collagen and / or act as the basis (matrix) for new collagen. Cross-linked fillers based on hyaluronic acid are biocompatible, immunologically inert, natural polysaccharides extracted from non-pathogenic Streptococcus equi bacteria. Fillers based on hyaluronic acid are biodegraded within 3-9 months after administration. Currently, hyaluronic acid fillers are allowed to correct moderate and deep wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. Even with the experience of introducing filers, precise positioning of the filer in the skin is quite a challenge. Differences from patient to patient in the density of the skin, the degree of hydration, the thickness of the epidermis and dermis-all this can affect the depth of the filer.
Filers are combined with BBL photo rejuvenation and fractional rejuvenation
To study the combination of filers with BBL photo-rejuvenation and fractional laser rejuvenation, a study was conducted in 2008. Injectable fillers based on hyaluronic acid remained intact after non-ablative laser procedures and BBL photo-rejuvenation procedures, as well as after surface fractional laser rejuvenation. More aggressive deep laser procedures have shown interaction between the filer and the laser, which may affect the service life of the filer and / or the effectiveness of laser procedures. But even when the laser beam was in contact with the filer, there were no changes in the structure of the filer.
Restyline photo rejuvenation BBL Juviderm and photo rejuvenation BBL
A skin sample after sciton BBL photo-rejuvenation using a 560 nm filter (12j/20ms) showed no signs of changing filers, Restylane coloring hemotoxylin-eosin (left) and Restylane alcyan blue (right). There were no signs of morphological changes on the filer or surrounding tissues. (Magnification: x4)
