THE FORTÉLIS EXTRA INJECTION TECHNIQUES
1. All adapted techniques in depthTechniques for modelling
The linear retrotracing technique
consists in inserting the needle up to almost its entire length, while keeping it closely parallel to the skin’s plane and injecting the gel while slowly withdrawing it, while applying much less pressure to the syringe. This allows the threads of gel to be deposited in the tissues.
The anterotracing techniqueconsists, as for the linear retrotracing technique, in inserting the needle while keeping it closely parallel to the skin’s plane. The gel is injected while slowly pushing the needle into the dermis (up to almost its entire length) and applying low pressure to the syringe.
The fan technique
consists in inserting the needle as for linear threading. At the end of the gel line, the needle direction is changed and a new line of gel is injected without withdrawing the needle tip from the skin. This makes it possible to cover a relatively large area with a fan of threads, while limiting the number of puncture sites.
The serial puncture techniqueconsists in a linear series of injections along the same wrinkle over the extent of the same zone. The injections deposit small quantities of the product in the dermis; sufficiently close together, they make it possible to form a continuous line that fills the wrinkle or the surface treated. In order to avoid any irregularity or empty space, the injections must be very close together and the zones treated must be massaged.
The cross-hatching technique
is one of the preferred techniques for modifying facial contours and enhancing volume. This consists of two series of parallel injections using the retrotracing technique. They are both administered perpendicularly in the same deep layer of skin.
The sandwich techniqueis perfectly adapted to work on a deep fold and to treat wrinkles at the same time. It involves injecting a resorbable implant – such as Fortélis Extra- into the deeper dermis and a finer and more homogeneous filler – such as Esthélis- into an upper layer of the dermis (usually the mid or superficial dermis), according to the area under treatment and the desired volume. The sandwich technique can be used for a single injection point or multiple injection points. It can be combined with any of the traditional injection techniques.
2. Deep is the right levelThe rheological properties of Fortélis Extra resorbable implant require injecting into the deep dermis for best results.
Why the deep dermis?Injecting in the deep dermis:
- you maximize the natural effect of your modelling folds and depressions, avoiding any appearance default
- you benefit, meanwhile, from the remarkable volume-enhancing power of Fortélis Extra conferred by its Extra Volumizing Elasticity.
