The most popular facial rejuvenating treatments in spring 2023 are fractional laser, injections of hyaluronic acid and mesotherapy – this range of treatments has remained unchanged for several years, because their greatest advantages are safety and effectiveness. The effects do not last as long as in the case of surgical correction, but the recovery after them is relatively short – that is why patients of aesthetic medicine clinics so often decide on them, even after the age of 25, when they only notice the first signs of aging the skin.
It can be said about this treatment that it actually groups many face skin firming treatments, which are connected by the method of applying valuable nutrients and vitamins. Mesotherapy most often uses precise manual punctures with a very thin needle, or regular injections with a dedicated head, which performs dozens of regular punctures of appropriate depth with one contact with the skin of the face. Why is mesotherapy so effective? Because nutrients, vitamins and hyaluronic acid reach the deeper layers of the skin directly, where ingredients from cosmetics applied to the skin do not reach – facial needle mesotherapy, thanks to this ability to penetrate, is an effective facial rejuvenating treatment.
What effects of mesotherapy can be expected? The skin of the face, thanks to the punctures itself, is stimulated for self-regeneration. Dead or damaged cells are replaced with new skin cells. Mesotherapy generally revitalizes, reduces small wrinkles, and is a great anti-aging treatment for women and men with the first signs of aging. Mesotherapy also effectively smoothes wrinkles.
Fractional ablative laser is an effective facial skin rejuvenating treatment dedicated to slightly older patients – it will be perfect after the age of 40. Then, unfortunately, the volume of natural elastin and collagen in the skin is much smaller than in people under thirty. Therefore, a more natural revitalizing treatment, such as mesotherapy, may not bring the expected results, because older skin is deprived of such natural self-regeneration abilities. The ablative fractional laser works more invasively, because it leads to local damage to skin cells at the appropriate depth of the skin – depending on the general condition of the skin and aging changes (in short, how flabby our skin is and how deep are disfiguring mimic wrinkles and furrows). Facial laser treatment requires a slightly longer convalescence – patients are encouraged to be able to stay at home for as long as possible a week after the procedure. Of course, it does not prevent an active lifestyle and normal work. but it should be taken into account that after the procedure, small scabs will remain on the face for about 7 days, which are traces of the laser beam. It is not advisable to apply make-up, because subsequent make-up removal may unnecessarily peel off scabs. Later, this can result in unnecessary scarring. Not to mention the worse rejuvenating effects of the treatment itself. being traces of the laser beam.

Hyaluronic acid under the eyes
Another non-invasive treatment that rejuvenates the sensitive area of the face, which is the eyes, is the hyaluronic acid treatment. The skin around the eyes is naturally devoid of such strong mimic muscles as the lower parts of the face; there is also no protective subcutaneous layer of fat cells. Therefore, it is around the eyes that we notice the first wrinkles – most often these are the so-called crow’s feet in the outer corners of the eyes. In addition, many patients decide to undergo a hyaluronic acid treatment under the eyes due to the valley of tears – it is a depression in the skin visible from the lacrimal corner diagonally down the cheek plane. The valley of tears does not have to be directly related to the aging process. Anatomical structure plays a big role here. That is why women in their thirties decide to use hyaluronic acid under the eyes.
