There are numerous ways to add volume to your face and give it a rejuvenated appearance. One of the most basic is to use what is known as dermal filler, an injectable substance that fills in the underlying tissue, adding contour to the face and easing wrinkles.
The problem with fillers, of course, is that while they can improve the appearance and vitality of an aging face, the results are superficial and short lived. Furthermore, the direct injection with needles can lead to side effects like bruising. These downsides are why the next generation of fillers take a combined approach. The cytocare complex, for instance, combines hyaluronic acid filler with a vitamin and nutrient solution that is delivered by a mesogun to offer more complete and longer-lasting results.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers for the Ageing Face
Hyaluronic acid is a molecular component that is a natural part of your skin’s structure and can be found in connective tissues across the body as well. What sets hyaluronic acid apart from other structural substances, however, is that it has a remarkable ability to retain moisture. This results in hyaluronic acid fillers being able to produce a double benefit.
The first is that the acid can offer structural support to your skin by adding softness, smoothness, and roundness to your face. The second is that it restores your skin’s moisture content, helping to reverse the reduced firmness and pliability that ageing can bring. Lastly, the hyaluronic acid improves your skin’s ability to absorb and retain the other nutrient solutions in the cytocare complex.
The Use of the U225 Mesogun
One of the Anti Aging Toronto Clinic’s more recent tools is the U225 Mesogun. This particular device looks a bit like a submachine gun with a syringe attached, and it is an essential part of the cytocare treatment. The mesogun allows the cytocare complex to be delivered directly into the subcutaneous tissue, providing precise, machine-calibrated administration of the complex.
An additional benefit is that the mesogun can reduce any normal defensive response your body may show when it is injected. When delivering a treatment by manual needle, the pain and bruising that can occur at the site is connected to how long the needle is inserted. The mesogun can make its injection with rapid speed, allowing it to perform a quick in-and-out before your body realizes what has happened.
Combining Cytocare and PRP Therapy
Cytocare has an interesting partnership with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy that allows the two to complement each other quite well. PRP treatments are administered in three sessions 30 days apart, with an additional two to three months needed for full benefits to be seen. This delay is because PRP therapy makes use of the body’s own, and admittedly slow, repair mechanisms to see results.
Cytocare, by contrast, relies on the direct injection of filler and nutrients, producing more immediate effects. Due to this, cytocare boosters can be used during PRP therapy to bolster the skin during the waiting period, offering the following benefits:
• Hydrate the skin and preserve moisture.
• Fill fine lines and smooth out wrinkles.
• Preserve and restore the natural radiance of the skin.
• Work on deep levels of the skin, treating fibroblasts beneath the surface and keratinocytes on the surface.
A single millilitre or more of cytocare can be added to a PRP treatment as a way to enhance and preserve the skin until the main benefits of the therapy kick in.
