FAQ

THE WORLD OF NON-SURGICAL ANTI-AGEING PROCEDURES

  • What is hyaluronic acid?

    Hyaluronic acid is a major constituent of the extracellular matrix (ECM) of the dermis, which it helps to structure and organize. Its remarkable moisturizing properties allow it to ensure the filling of the ‘support mat, protecting the cells (fibroblasts) and organization of the collagen fibers in the ECM. Capable of holding 1,000 times its weight in water, hyaluronic acid is known for its strong moisturizing properties. Naturally present in various body tissues (skin, cartilage, etc.), this exceptional molecule is used in many fields (ophthalmic surgery, treatment of osteoarthritis), and particularly in the field of non-surgical anti-ageing procedures as a wrinkle filler. It is also used in cosmetics for its moisturizing and wrinkle-filling properties.

  • What type of hyaluronic acid do the Filorga products contain?

    Hyaluronic acid with a high molecular weight encapsulated in chronospheres. Some other Filorga products also contain micro-fragmented hyaluronic acid.

  • How is it different from injected hyaluronic acid?

    Our hyaluronic acid has been specially formulated to be directly absorbed through the skin.

  • What is NCTF® ?

    NCTF® is Filorgas exclusive complex containing revitalizing and anti-ageing ingredients (vitamins, co-enzymes, anti-oxidants, amino acids, minerals, etc.)

  • What are chronospheres?

    Chronospheres are vectors that enable absorption of active ingredients, in which we have encapsulated the hyaluronic acid and NCTF®. This exclusive formula is the core of all our skincare creams.

  • What is mesotherapy?

    Mesotherapy is a technique used in medical practice by a physician trained in mesotherapy injection techniques. It consists of a series of multiple micro-injections of NCTF® into the dermis. With a genuine infusion of freshness, the FILORGA mesotherapy solution stimulates the skin from the inside to deeply nourish, smooth wrinkles and revive skin radiance.
