Harmony between Aquamid® and your body
The secret of harmony
Aquamid® is a hydrogel that feels and behaves like it is a natural part of your own body. It consists of 97.5 % water and 2.5% polyacrylamide and becomes completely integrated with your body’s own tissue. The volume it supplies remains in place beneath the skin in harmony with your body.
With Aquamid®, what you see is what you get. 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 your physician to correct your 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.
