Rimpelbehandeling or the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles has always been a concern for those who acquire wrinkles or rimples, as a result of the ageing process of our bodies.

Historically, man and woman, have always tried to maintain youthfulness with a variety of potions, oils, creams and lifestyle. Ponce de Leon searched the western hemisphere for the elusive Fountain of Youth. This obsession for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles or rimpelbehandeling has found its way into the present day start up of the many cosmetic clinics for the various treatments to make us all look more youthful and beautiful.

Present day cosmetic clinics approach the rimpelbehandeling or treatment of wrinkles with fillers, Botox and various medical devices, such as, Fractional Laser treatments and the Infini RF, which is a radio frequency device with micro needling. The fillers that are most accepted in today’s clinics are basically, hyaluronic acid gels that fill wrinkles and absorb water to give the face a smoother, filled look, showing fewer wrinkles or rimples.

In our clinic, rimpelbehandeling is done with Juvederm, Restylane and Teosyal, hyaluronic gel fillers. It is important to note that hyaluronic acid is also found naturally in the body. Therefore, it being a more natural product to use in the face for rimpelbehandeling. These fillers last between 8 months and one year, depending on the person’s rate of metabolism and the anatomical location of the injection. Hyaluronic acid fillers have been shown to be quite safe and are bio­degradable, eventually leaving the body.
