Hydrelle is an FDA-approved wrinkle filler made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the connective tissue of your skin. Hydrelle is an injectable wrinkle filler that provides an alternative to Restylane and Juvederm. Hydrelle is the first hyaluronic acid filler to include lidocaine in its composition, making your injection more comfortable than ever before.
How the face ages
Losing fatty tissue in our faces is a normal part of aging, and the impact of significant weight loss, gravity, and over-exposure to the sun are readily apparent over the years. Each face ages in its own unique way, but gauntness, wrinkling, and vertical folds and lines on both sides of the mouth are common. The rounded fat pads in the cheeks – a hallmark characteristic of the youthful face -also thin and migrate downward as we get older, giving the face a tired or worn look.
Who can benefit from Hydrelle?
Hydrelle is used for treating moderate facial wrinkles and folds. The nasolabial folds are the most common area of treatment with Hydrelle. Hydrelle may also be effective for filling out thin lips and the hollow areas around the eyes and near the top of the nose (one of the areas most prone to fat loss). In some cases it has also been used for restoring volume to the cheekbones and mid-face.
What is the procedure like?
The doctor will decide the best placement for Hydrelle after carefully evaluating the unique way your face is aging. Areas to be treated are numbed with a topical anesthetic to make the procedure comfortable; Hydrelle is then injected with a very fine needle to correct the contour irregularities present on your skin.
Results of Hydrelle last 6 months or more. During clinical trials with Hydrelle, the product demonstrated results lasting up to one year. With frequent touch-ups and repeat treatments, you can maintain the volume and wrinkle correction you desire for years.
What are the Risks?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are effective and have proven to be very safe when administered in a medical setting by a qualified and trained doctor. We will learn about your medical history and ask you some important health questions to make sure Hydrelle is a good option for you.
Side effects from Hydrelle are usually minor and temporary. Adverse events reported with Hydrelle include injection site reactions like redness, bumps, swelling and tenderness. It is not unusual for uneven swelling to occur, with one side more prominent than the other. Typically, this lasts for one or two days before it subsides. Ask Dr. Rubinstein for more information about possible side effects.
