Hydrobalans/Soft Lifting at Ambroziak Clinic – innovative skin revitalisation method, based on an intradermal injection of a preparation of stabilised hyaluronic acid, similar to mesotherapy; however, non-stabilised hyaluronic acid has only been applied in the latter so far.
Hydrobalance/Soft Lifting involves linear administration of hyaluronic acid, intradermally and/or subcutaneously, using the so-called soft cannula with a blunt end. Application with a cannula does not cause damage of blood vessels and important nerves. Use of the “soft lifting” technique minimises the risk of adverse effects and renders a natural effect. Hyaluronic acid creates an additional grid, kind of “scaffolding” which prevents development of wrinkles and allows shaping of the face oval. Considering particular properties of hyaluronic acid, condition of the skin and its hydration are also improved.
After treatment, the preparation acts as a water buffer – absorbing water when the skin is properly hydrated, and dispensing the humidity when the skin needs it – e.g. during hot weather, sunbathing or while in dry, air conditioned facilities.
Is this a painful treatment?
Injections usually do not require anaesthetisation.
When does the effect appear and how long does it last?
The preparation may be administered to persons at any age, who want their skin to have a natural, healthy and young appearance, and the effects are really spectacular! The face becomes visibly rejuvenated, the face oval – shaped and lifted, wrinkles are reduced and face skin is hydrated for a long time, radiant and fresh.
3 treatments performed at 3-4 week intervals are recommended to achieve the optimum effect. The treatment series may be repeated after 6 months.
After treatment, strong sunlight exposition (tanning bed) and heating (sauna) ought to be avoided for two weeks.
Unlike traditional lifting, Hydrobalance/Soft Lifting does not cause the patients’ discomfort resulting from pain and the treatment. The effects are visible instantly and the patient may function normally immediately afterwards.
