Redensification is a new treatment designed to prevent premature aging. It works on the basis of the properties of hyaluronic acid, one of the most effective components in the therapeutic approach to the skin.

One of the most remarkable aspects of redensification treatment is the fact that it allows more than satisfactory results to be obtained without resorting to surgery. It not only prevents aging, but also corrects its damage.

The facial variant of the treatment has gained much notoriety because it’s simple and offers immediate results. Overall, it’s effective in improving skin texture, luminosity, elasticity, and hydration.

What is facial redensification?

Facial redensification is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses hyaluronic acid and vitamins. It corrects and prevents the signs of aging by activating the skin cells’ own functions.

Unlike other treatments, redensification doesn’t paralyze the facial muscles. What it does is provide a filler in the dermis. This slows down the appearance of wrinkles and modifies the existing ones.

With this treatment, the skin undergoes very evident improvements without changing the appearance of the face in a noticeable way. In other words, it’s very natural. It’s indicated to treat wrinkles in areas such as the face, the neck, and the décolleté.

How does it work?

Facial redensification is an easy-to-apply and minimally invasive treatment. It has a restructuring power on the skin and promotes cell regeneration. It also has antioxidant properties.

The procedure consists of the application of small injections of hyaluronic acid in the affected areas. These are painless and cause a small inflammation in the skin.

It usually requires at least three sessions, each lasting about a half an hour. However, this depends on the condition of the skin of each person.

Ideally, the procedure should be repeated once a year.

The injection can be applied at the superficial, medium, or deep level of the skin. A high molecular weight, non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid is used. This compound is sterile, is not of animal origin, and is biodegradable.

The characteristics of this treatment

Each of the three sessions required in facial redensification should be done with three weeks in between them. The effects are usually visible to the naked eye within 48 hours. It is indicated for both young and mature skin.

The most common is that the effects of redensification remain between 6 and 9 months. However, this depends on the habits of each person and the way they take care of their skin.

When applied to mature skin, its action is to modify the structure of the skin. This translates into a filling of wrinkles and folds, as well as a restoration of natural volume.

Redensification thickens the skin, while reducing roughness and micro-reliefs, thus generating a smoother and more uniform texture. The result is a denser, firmer, more luminous, and elastic complexion.

The benefits of redensification

One of the great benefits of redensification has to do with increased skin hydration. This treatment has the ability to penetrate into the deep layers of the skin and provide hydration, but it also forms a kind of protective barrier that prolongs the effect.

It also strengthens the skin. As a result, the complexion is less vulnerable to free radicals.

Redensification accelerates cell regeneration and stimulates collagen production. It also improves pigmentation and thus prevents the appearance of age spots.

 In addition to the hydration provided by substances, regular water intake must be maintained to promote skin smoothness. This helps to keep the skin hydrated properly.

Advice and recommendations regarding redensification

Facial redensification treatment is compatible with other procedures, such as anti-aging and boosters. In fact, applying them together is a great idea to achieve a comprehensive revitalization of the complexion.

Since this procedure is minimally invasive, it’s highly recommended for people undergoing such an approach for the first time, regardless of their age. It doesn’t require hospitalization, and the treated person can resume their daily routine immediately.

It usually causes no pain or almost imperceptible pain. Overall, it rarely causes more noticeable discomfort. In  some rare cases, redness or bruising may be reported.

It’s more advisable to have the injections for the first time around the age of 30. This can help to slow down the appearance of signs of aging.

Although it can be planned at any time, it would be better to do this treatment at the end of summer. At that time, there’s more dryness, roughness, marked wrinkles, and spots due to the effects of the summer season.
