Microneedling with Fillerina
Microneedling is one of the industry’s most promising skincare innovations, thanks to its minimal invasiveness and impressive versatility. By harnessing your skin’s power to heal itself, Microneedling encourages the growth of new collagen for improved tone and texture. Over time, lines, wrinkles, and even some types of scars can fade significantly.
Fillerina features the same ingredient as Restylane and Juvederm, which is hyaluronic acid (HA). The difference is that, while Restylane and Juvederm use very large molecules of HA, Fillerina’s formula contains varying sizes of HA, from very small to the same large size, which penetrate all layers of the skin. Office fillers are large and injected, which creates an instant plump and can be overdone. Fillerina penetrates all layers and takes 14 to 21 days to plump the skin and bring it back to the level it was 5 to 10 years ago. Fillerina will not ever over plump.
Microneedling is a deceptively simple procedure that can yield big results. The Microneedling tool looks a bit like a pen with extremely small — nearly microscopic — needles on one end. Your skincare provider moves the device over your skin, creating a few small punctures. These stimulate your skin to engage its healing capabilities, boosting its production of natural collagen. This is especially noteworthy because the body’s collagen production naturally diminishes over time. Microneedling can help bring collagen back to youthful levels.
Microneedling is a versatile procedure that can be used to reduce the appearance of the following:
- Lax, sagging skin, especially along the jawline
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Thin or “creepy” skin
- Certain kinds of scars, including acne and chicken pox scars
- Enlarged pores.
What is it used for?
This procedure is most often used to reduce signs of aging on the face, such as fine lines or wrinkles, as well as to smooth the appearance of acne scars.
Fillerina is a dermo-cosmetic filler treatment, which can obstruct wrinkles and to give more volume to those areas of the face that are more subject to skin sagging with time-passing. For this reason, of course, the product is suitable for those people whose skin presents such kinds of beauty flaws. It is hard to say an age, but we can say that it can be used by women as young as 25-30 years old.
Can I use Fillerina treatment on neck and décolletage?
Fillerina Face Treatment supports the filling action on expression lines and age wrinkles of specific areas of the face, cheekbones and oval contour. If necessary, it can be used on neck and décolletage too.
Can I use Fillerina treatment on mouth’s higher lip wrinkles?
Fillerina is particularly indicated to fill expression lines: vertical wrinkles on the lips are small expression lines, which can be filled up by Fillerina Gel Filler. Its hyaluronic acids will fill the empty spaces caused by wrinkles, which will progressively appear less marked.
What happens if my applications of Fillerina treatment are not constant?
It is important not to forget to apply Fillerina. It is important to follow the treatment schedule and its conditions of use. An inconstant application of Fillerina could frustrate the awaited results.
How does the organism assimilate Fillerina?
Throughout time, skin cells metabolize Fillerina’s active ingredients, i.e. its hyaluronic acids, and uses them to guarantee their filling action. Hyaluronic acid molecules can bind water molecules and to promote a progressive filling action of the skin tissue.
Why is it important to drink at least two glasses of water before the application?
Hyaluronic acid filling properties are linked to its capacity of binding water molecules in the tissues. The largest the quantity of water that the hyaluronic acid binds, the most effective its capacity of plumping up tissues will be: this way it will fill wrinkles and empty areas of the face. By providing water to the organism, we provide water to cutaneous tissues too: this presence will be captured by Fillerina hyaluronic acid.
What do the product’s different grades stand for?
Fillerina’s different grades indicate different concentrations of active ingredients, thus, thanks to the pharmacist’s advice, the consumer will have the possibility of choosing which treatment fits best to his personal conditions concerning skin depressions (wrinkles) and volume needs (cheekbones and lips).
The difference is in the distribution of the different sizes of HA molecules in each grade. Grade 1 has a higher % of the larger sizes which penetrate the top layers of the skin, absorb more moisture from the atmosphere, mainly provide volume in the cheekbones and lips and beautiful moisturized skin. Grade 3 has a higher % or the smaller sizes which are needed to penetrate deep into all layers of the skin and build upon each other to gradually smooth out deep wrinkles and correct sagging aging skin. Grade 2 is a nice even mix to benefit the middle range of skin. Grade 3 is wasted and will not work as well on a person who does not have a lot of deep wrinkles and would like more volume. The reason for the price difference is the cost of producing the smaller molecules is higher, not because it is stronger or better.
Can you mix grades?
Yes, depending on the needs of the entire face. Treatments can also be combined with other Grade Creams.
What if the treatment causes the skin to breakout?
If the treatment causes minor breakouts, this is probably from the Nourishing Film, not the Replenishing Gel. A suggestion is to use less or stop using the Nourishing Film but continue the 14 days with the Gel. If a major rash or reaction is caused, which is very unusual, stop using the product. If the person has allergies or very sensitive skin as with any skin care products, the product should be tested on a small area first.
How much time does the treatment last? What happens at the end of the treatment? Can I repeat the treatment?
Fillerina filling treatment must be used every day for 14 days. Fillerina is a cosmetic treatment based on hyaluronic acids with different molecular weights, which helps fill wrinkles, expression lines and empty areas of the face. Because of its specific nature – it is a cosmetic treatment for topical use – its effects are temporary. If you wish to maintain the achieved results, we recommend repeating the treatment every 3-4 months. Between a cycle and the other, you can apply Fillerina Day and Night Creams.
Cleaning the applicator during treatment
Rinse the applicator in warm water after use each night and allow it to air dry, keep the rubber tip on the end of the applicator when not in use. The tip of the applicator screws on and off, some come loose during shipping. Make customers aware of this so they do not think the applicator is broken.
How should I preserve the products during the treatment?
Once opened, Fillerina Gel and Nourishing Film should be room-temperature stored, inside their original bottles, which should be closed by means of the provided tips.
Can I undergo a facial cleansing or get a sunlamp during the treatment?
Sunlamps are extremely stressful for our skin, which consequently will be more inclined to dehydration and wrinkle formation. Therefore, in order to promote Fillerina’s best cosmetic results, we advise not to undergo sunlamps. A frequent facial cleansing, instead, can support the deep penetration of hyaluronic acids into the skin and Fillerina’s positive effects, as the skin will be free from impurities and an excess of sebum.
Can I use Fillerina during pregnancy or breastfeeding?
Fillerina can be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Can I sun during the treatment?
After Fillerina application you can sun, it being understood that a long exposure requires the application of a sunscreen containing specific and appropriate UV protective filters and in line with your own photo type.
Are there contraindications for the use of Fillerina treatment on a skin subject to acne, rosacea and acne scarring?
If your skin presents sebum and acne, it is advisable to apply a gentle face cleanser before Fillerina application. HA can improve your skin’s moisture content and at the same time strengthen skin’s barrier. A healthy barrier looks and feels softer, smoother and plumper, all hallmarks of younger looking skin. Sun damage, acne, sensitive skin and rosacea, can lead to a damaged barrier, so repairing the skins barrier with skin-identical ingredients, like HA can work towards fixing those issues or minimizing them. HA is a lightweight texture which is not an issue for oily skin and is gentle enough for sensitive skin.
HA also provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage and reduces inflammation.
Fillerina helps in filling and fading scars and prevents scar formation.
Can I use other products such as Retin A?
Yes, other skin creams can be used with Fillerina. Fillerina skins creams are recommended as they also have the 6 patented HA molecules and will increase the results during the 14-day treatment and after treatment.
It is recommended not to use another night cream during the 14-day treatment, the nourishing film should provide enough moisturizer.
Retin A is an exfoliate and is not recommended during the 14-day treatment, it is good to take a break occasionally from Retin A.
Once the treatment is completed, you can continue the Retin A. However, if used with Fillerina day or night cream, always use the Fillerina product first, allow the 6 HA molecules to absorb into the skin tissues for a few minutes and then apply other product on top. Other products only benefit the top layers of our skin therefore you want to create a layering effect by using Fillerina on clean skin first.
Can you use the lip plump on other areas of the face?
The formula of the Lip Plump was developed specifically for the texture of the lip skin. It is not meant to work around the eye area. It is a thinner formula that will not work as well on other areas of the face.
