Biorestructuring is a treatment used to restore the normal compactness of the facial tissues. It is possible, with specific products, to perform a real ‘reconstruction’ of the volume and proportions of the face, not filling, but stimulating the gradual synthesis of new connective tissue with stable results over time.

The main products used for this purpose are polylactic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite. Polylactic acid is certainly one of the most used products in this regard. One session per month is performed for a period of 3-4 months, promoting support to the face and the site of lipoatrophy, that is the phenomenon in which, over the years, we see the reabsorption of the adipose layer of the cheeks and temples. The product is a suspension that must be inserted deep into the areas to be treated; at the end of the session the patient will be given an energetic massage, which the patient must repeat at home in the following days as an integral part of the treatment. The results are appreciable at the end of the first session, and then amplified in the following weeks. The treatment is not painful because the solution contains lidocaine, a powerful local anaesthetic.

Calcium hydroxylapatite is an innovative injectable product that is particularly indicated in cases of severe lipoatrophy. It should be injected deeply also in the subperiosteal, so as to stimulate a real reconstruction of both connective tissue and collagen, giving a filling effect, and stimulating the synthesis of a real support infrastructure, particularly in the zygomatic region. It can also be successfully used to redefine the contours of the face and any irregularities of the nasal pyramid.

The treatment is performed with the aid of an anesthetic cream and the patient can immediately resume their daily activities. The product has a slow reabsorption, so the result will be stable for about 12 months.

Purpose of the treatment

Each biorestructuring treatment aims to build a support scaffold for the face, acting on the fibroblasts and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.

What I need to know

The biorestructuring is aimed at men and women who are over 35 years old, with facial problems like excessive thinness, wrinkles of expression already present and skin lacking elasticity and tone.
