Overview: Ostenil Treatments
Ostenil Plus is a new treatment for the symptoms of osteoarthritis. It can be used in the knee, or in any of the other joints in the body that are classified as “synovial”,
A synovial joint is one which the ends of the bones are enclosed in a capsule containing a thick, slippery liquid called synovial fluid.
The hyaluronic acid in synovial fluid does not stay there for a whole lifetime, but is continuously broken down and replaced. Normally, there is an exact balance between the breakdown and replacement of hyaluronic acid. In osteoarthritis, however, this balance is disturbed, and breakdown happens faster than replacement and the synovial fluid becomes more watery and stops working properly.
How it Works
Ostenil is a solution containing hyaluronic acid. It is injected into the space in the joint that contains synovial fluid and works by restoring the normal balance. This effect means that it can decrease pain and stiffness and improve the other symtoms of osteoarthritis.
Ostenil will be injected directly into the affected joint.
You will probably notice some improvement immediately and you can expect to feel the benefits for 6 to 12 months.
Your Ostenil Treatments Consultation
The consultation is probably the most important part of a patient’s journey and should never be under-estimated.
For all new patients we always commence with a free 30 minutes consultation and for all existing patients every appointment starts with a mini-consultation and up-date.
At the Apsaras Aesthetic Clinic, our Aesthetic Medical Practitioners will carry out a thorough skin assessment and discuss individual needs on a one-to-one basis in a relaxed but informal atmosphere.
All treatments are individually planned and tailor-made to your unique requirements. During the consultation we will explain all the options and recommend the most suitable treatment, or combination of treatments, for you. We will also discuss expected procedures.
