A new concept of beauty is emerging, completely different from what we have witnessed in recent decades.
If, until recently, aesthetic medicine treatments seemed to have been as conspicuous as possible, producing exaggeratedly artefactual results that completely distorted the physiognomy of the individual, making them ‘equal’ to those who had resorted to similar systems, today the paradigm is being completely reversed.
The new vision of beauty aims to improve people’s appearance without distorting it; it does not aim to make people look younger against all age logic, but allows them to make the most of their age.
So, no more ‘balloon effect’ mouths or plastic-looking cheekbones, but softer interventions that can significantly improve the appearance of individuals, men and women alike, without making them look ridiculous.
The increasingly widespread use of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers fits into this new context, due to their ability to correct all major facial defects, guaranteeing immediately visible, long-lasting and natural results.
However, saying ‘hyaluronic acid’ is not enough to guarantee the quality of a product.
In order to be able to reap the full benefits without any risk to one’s appearance or health, it is essential to turn exclusively to doctors specialised in aesthetic medicine.
It is the doctor, based on their experience and expertise, who will choose the best hyaluronic acid filler to use. Like the one produced by Foliage by Phitogen.
In this article, we will find out the characteristics of the best hyaluronic acid fillers, and the factors that make the difference.
In particular, we will look at the following:
How to chose the best hyaluronic acid filler
First of all, a quick reminder of what HA is. This will help us better understand what hyaluronic acid is used, and what are its benefits.
We are talking about a molecule naturally present in our body, which, together with collagen, represents the supporting scaffolding of connective tissues and, therefore, also of the skin.
The task of hyaluronic acid is to keep the skin moisturised, supple and firm.
What happens, however, is that, with advancing age, the share of hyaluronic acid in the tissues decreases and this, at skin level, causes the appearance of wrinkles, and loss of moisture and firmness of the skin, which appears more wrinkled and ‘hollowed out’.
By using the best hyaluronic acid fillers, however, it is possible to make up for the amount of molecule lost, through injections using very fine needles.
In this way, it is possible not only to correct deep facial wrinkles, but also to intervene on all major facial imperfections, even those not strictly related to age, such as, for example:
- Enlarge lips that are too thin, whether this is a consequence of age-related depletion or a genetic characteristic
- Redefine face volumes
- Straighten a hump nose
- Correct the problem of sunken eyes
Having said that about the possible areas of application of HA, what are the characteristics of the best hyaluronic acid fillers?
Let’s see them together.
1. What is the best hyaluronic acid filler brand?
The manufacturer and the production processes by which it is obtained are crucial, in determining the quality of hyaluronic acid.
The entire Foliage range is produced by Phitogen Holding spa, a leading company, for over twenty years in the production of medical devices based on 100% Made in Italy pure hyaluronic acid, obtained using innovative patented technology and environmentally sustainable production processes.
2. How the best hyaluronic acid filler is produced
Only the most advanced production methods result in the best hyaluronic acid.
The Hyaluronic Acid extraction process takes place in a certified 5,000 square meter production site, equipped with state-of-the-art clean rooms, to obtain a raw material free of nucleic acids and residual proteins, guaranteeing excellent quality standards and maximum safety, according to the highest standards.
In particular, the 2CORE Technology makes it possible to obtain fillers that require less chemical cross-linking agents (BDDE) and are therefore particularly malleable, homogeneous and integrable with the skin tissues, guaranteeing a natural, long-lasting rejuvenation effect with no side effects.
What are the best hyaluronic acid fillers
Hyaluronic acid fillers for the face take the form of a transparent jelly that is injected by the doctor into the specific area where the imperfection is to be corrected.
The density of the filler will vary depending on the specific area to be treated and the type of imperfection to be corrected.
Here is another requirement that the best hyaluronic acid fillers must possess: differ in the degree of cross-linking and in their intended use.
The Foliage by Phitogen range consists of 3 lines of intradermal fillers specific to the problem to be treated:
- Foliage Lips Volume is the best hyaluronic acid filler for reshaping and plumping the lips while respecting the original anatomy and volume proportions in relation to the overall balance of the face.
The ideal filler for redefining the contours of the lips, both to restore their turgor and hydration, or to achieve an aesthetic change by acting on the increase in volume.
- Foliage Hydrofil is a specific filler for a moisturising, protective and restructuring action.
It is a bio-revitalising gel based on pure hyaluronic acid, biocompatible and of non-animal origin (it is derived from a bacterial fermentation process), whose function is to restore the shine, firmness and tone lost with age to the face.
Not only does it breathe new life into the skin, it also stimulates collagen production. This translates into its ability to repair tissues and alleviate superficial skin imperfections on the face and body, such as scars and stretch marks.
- Foliage Face is the hyaluronic acid filler line for correcting various facial imperfections , which in turn is divided into three products with different intensity levels depending on the area to be treated and the type of problem:
- Foliage Soft, a slightly cross-linked gel with extra moisturizing properties for superficial use designed for combating small wrinkles, moisturising dry and arid skin marked by the passage of time, and brightening the face and smile.
- Foliage Medium: cross-linked gel for medium-depth wrinkle correction.
The best hyaluronic acid for correcting medium skin sagging, that can restore facial volumes by exerting a gentle and non-invasive tissue-supporting action.
Hypovolumetries will be corrected naturally and harmoniously.
- Foliage Intense is a highly cross-linked gel for the correction of deep wrinkles, and is the best hyaluronic acid for the treatment of mature skin.
These fillers, besides acting as anti-ageing treatments, are a natural alternative to cosmetic surgery, if you want to improve your appearance and/or correct major facial imperfections (such as nose, chin and cheekbones).
As we mentioned earlier, it is the specialist who chooses the best hyaluronic acid filler for the specific imperfection to be treated.
Patients, for their part, should be as clear as possible in communicating to the doctor the result he expects to obtain.
Where to find hyaluronic acid fillers
Hyaluronic acid injections cannot be purchased directly by the patient, as they constitute medical devices that only professionals are authorised to purchase.
It is therefore the doctor who chooses the best hyaluronic acid filler, depending on the area of the face to be treated, the age, the type of imperfection to be corrected and the result the patient wants.
Moreover, the best professionals will certainly make their choice taking into account the quality of the raw material, the production processes by which the hyaluronic acid filler is obtained, and the reliability of the manufacturing company.
How to choose the best hyaluronic acid filler: purchase guide
From what we have read in this article, we can summarise the elements that make it possible to identify the best hyaluronic acid filler:
- The brand of injectant used
- The reliability and production techniques of the manufacturing company
- The specificity of the product according to the area to be treated and the blemish to be corrected
We have also seen how, among the available alternatives, Foliage by Phitogen injectables meet the highest quality and production standards, that guarantee not only visible, natural and lasting results but also maximum tolerability and safety for the patient’s health.
Because, while it is true that it is essential to feel good about yourself and your appearance, it is equally important to be certain that you do not suffer any side effects that could compromise not only your aesthetics but also your health.
Foliage is the result of 20 years' experience of Phitogen Holding S.p.A. - a leading group in the production of hyaluronic acid-based injectables. Foliage distributes a complete range of high-performing intradermal products.
