Poly-L lactic acid counteracts the natural aging process. Because aging facial skin gradually loses the ability to produce collagen: The skin loses volume, the resilience of its elastic fibers disappears. Poly-L lactic acid stimulates collagen production again and gives the face new volume.
Poly-L lactic acid is suitable for
Polylactic acid has been used for more than 30 years in cosmetic surgery. For about ten years, poly-L lactic acid has had a role in aesthetic medicine.
The lactic acid gel promotes the production of the body's own collagen:
Poly-L lactic acid is the only product which is scientifically proven to achieve this biostimulating effect with long-lasting results.
Since poly-L lactic acid is manufactured in a purely synthetic fashion, it is well tolerated. The body fully breaks it down and permanently replaces a portion with the body's own collagen.
Even in the case of medically induced facial fat loss, poly-L lactic acid has proven its value for many years, for example in the treatment of the consequences of HIV therapies.
Poly-L lactic acid is injected using a very thin needle or a mostly blunt cannula in the subcutaneous tissue and massaged in. Normally the treatment involves two to three sessions, each one about eight weeks apart. The build-up of connective tissue is stimulated. After about three months, the final volume treatment result is achieved, due to the body´s own collagen production. This result can last up to one and a half years.
Depending on the size of the regions to be treated and the number of injections, a session generally lasts about one hour in total. Temporary redness and minor bruises at the injection sites are normal. They can be easily concealed with a gentle cosmetic preparation before you return home.
Dr. Birgit Buxmeyer: "Sleep wrinkles in particular on the decolleté can be nicely smoothed with repeated treatment with poly-L lactic acid and the results are long-lasting."
