Recently, one could read a lot about hyaluron creams (anti-aging creams); in lifestyle magazines and in advertising they are praised in the highest tones. One learns of countless benefits and could quickly think that injections with Hyaluronic acid are now superfluous. Thus one reads lines like:
"...A cost-effective and non-invasive alternative to filler treatments." - Elle
"Anti-aging: you don't need fillers with this hyaluronic cream!" - OK Magazine
"The choice of highly effective anti-aging creams is huge and the effect, thanks to constantly new developments and tests, is more effective than ever." - Gala
"For wrinkle-free skin, you no longer have to inject it with expensive fillers. New skin care creams with hyaluronic acid are just as good." - InStyle
The fact that you can achieve the same results with a cream as with a filler treatment naturally sounds extremely tempting. After all, a cream is cheaper, you can apply it yourself at home, and you don't have to go to a specialist. This makes one wonder how, in comparison, injections with hyaluronic acid are still worthwhile.
But the claim that the creams have just as good an effect is only true on the surface - literally. The problem with hyaluronic creams is that they only work on the surface of the skin. This is because the water-soluble property of hyaluronic acid does not allow the cream to penetrate through the lipid layers and into the deeper skin layers. Instead, the cream remains on the surface and fights small wrinkles. However, there it causes the horny layer to swell, which in turn causes the skin to dry out. This gives one the feeling that one can simply counteract the dryness with more hyaluronic cream. Thus, a kind of vicious circle is created, a feeling of dependence. One should ask oneself whether such dependence is really worth it for only superficial and short-term results.
An injection with hyaluronic acid, on the other hand, fights wrinkles more effectively. With our various hyaluronic acid treatments, you can preserve the youthful freshness of your skin and give it a plumper appearance in no time. We will be happy to advise you in a personal consultation on the various treatment options.
So when it comes to treatment with a long-term effect, filler treatments with hyaluron remain the most effective method. The promises of the cosmetics industry sound tempting, of course; but if you take a closer look at them from a scientific perspective, you quickly realize that they are too good to be true. Nowadays, lasting results for a fresh, young appearance can still only be achieved with a treatment performed by an Specialists performed injection.
