Aquamid® is a hydrogel that feels and behaves like it is a natural part of our own body. It consists of 97.5 % water and 2.5% polyacrylamide and becomes completely integrated with our body’s own tissue. The volume it supplies remains in place beneath the skin in harmony with our body.
The hydrogel does not contain any micro-particles, which means that the filling effect comes from the gel itself – not from a foreign body reaction to the micro-particles. Therefore, Aquamid® does not create tissue hardening or fibrosis.
The volume injected is equivalent to the final result and enables our physician to correct our looks with precision. A slight swelling might occur after injection, but will disappear after a few days.
Aquamid® is a watery gel. Once injected in the tissue it continuously exchanges water between the hydrogel and the surrounding tissue. With time the gel becomes vascularised enabling access to the immune system.
