Cosmetic Fillers

Dermal filler treatment is an aesthetic application with the aim of rejuvenating the appearance, clarifying gestures and mimics, and adding volume to the facial lines. In addition to reducing the signs of aging, facial filler application is also popular for its therapeutic aspects such as eliminating skin imperfections and removing skin scars. It is applied by injecting fillers under the skin.

It includes operations such as contouring, volumizing, and wrinkle removal. It is applied by a specialist in a clinical setting using special filling materials. Anyone who wants to look younger and more energetic can have cosmetic filler therapy. The procedure can be performed on both women and men.


What is the Purpose of Dermal Fillers?


Facial filler applications basically promise to have a more aesthetic and youthful facial appearance. Providing effective results in a short time, reducing tired and nervous facial expressions, and offering a more voluminous, fuller, and contoured facial appearance are the leading factors for the preference of this procedure.

Questions such as why our skin sags or how aging affects facial features are highly researched in this regard. Over the years, the amount of collagen, which gives the skin elasticity, decreases. Fat loss occurs in the facial area and facial muscles gradually weaken. These are the main factors underlying aging.


Prominent causes of facial sagging:


  • Aging,
  • Collagen deficiency
  • Gravity,
  • Skin dryness,
  • Excessive weight gain and loss,
  • Irregular nutrition,
  • Stress,
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome,
  • Cigarette consumption,
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiency,
  • Poor sleep pattern,
  • Lack of facial cleansing.

The sagging experienced due to these reasons is corrected with facial filler treatments.


Types of Dermal Fillers / Injectable Dermal Fillers


Dermal filler ingredients and brands are diverse. Fillers have different names according to their material content. Dermal filler prices and application procedures may also vary depending on the type of filler. The most popular filler injection material in recent years is Hyaluronic acid. In addition, treatments are performed using autonomous fillings, collagen-based fillings, and synthetic fillings. The most preferred are:


  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA): It is one of the polymer types that has the advantages of moisturizing and giving fullness. It shows its difference thanks to its moisture retention feature. Maintaining the skin's moisture balance is an important characteristic of this polymer. In addition to providing a more vibrant skin appearance, it is also used in the treatment of acne. HA contains antioxidants. Also, the risk of skin reaction to this preparation is low.


  • Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA): It stands out with its long-lasting effect. It is a synthetic polymer. PLLA adapts easily to the skin. In other words, the skin is less likely to have an allergic reaction. However, it may cause an allergic reaction in some people due to the "lidocaine" in its content. It should be noted that it is not suitable for use on the entire face. Poly-L-Lactic Acid should be preferred considering its limited usage area.


  • Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHa): CaHa is a type of bioceramide with anti-aging features. It has been used for a long time in different fields of plastic surgery. Calcium Hydroxyapatite filler, which is delivered in polymer form, has a denser consistency compared to hyaluronic acid. An important feature is that CaHa supports natural collagen production. That is, it promotes skin elasticity by increasing collagen.


Facial filler options are not limited to these. There are various dermal injection products such as oil injections, Polymethylmethacrylate components. The plastic surgeon will inform and guide you according to your expectations, skin type, and degree of sagging.


Facial Filler Injection Sites


Another important issue for those who want to have facial fillers is cosmetic filler injection sites. The areas and procedures where facial fillers are most applied are as follows:


  • Wrinkles around the mouth,
  • Nasolabial lines,
  • Smoking lines,
  • Chin area,
  • Around the lips,
  • Under the eye,
  • Around the eyes,
  • Cheekbones,
  • Forehead lines.


It should be noted that different processes can be applied to different regions. For example, operations such as cheekbone enhancement and lip plumping are performed to add volume, while crow's feet removal and correction of smile lines are performed to reduce wrinkles. Removing the forehead lines and shaping the eyebrows are other plastic aesthetic applications that are made with dermal filler and focus on different purposes.


Cosmetic Dermal Filling Process


The facial filling is a procedure performed under the skin and completed in a short time. It should not be confused with the Botox application, which is produced from Clostridium Botulinum. It is applied in the clinic by injection method.

Preparations and gels are injected into the relevant area with the help of micro-tipped needles. The procedures are usually performed under local anesthesia. All medical instruments must be sterile. It is completed in an average of half an hour. Of course, the number of sessions and the duration of filling applications vary according to the type of filling.


Post Dermal Filling Process


The post-dermal filler process is not challenging or tiring. The fact that it is a non-surgical procedure is considered an advantage in itself for those who do not want an invasive operation. There may be swelling and bruising for the first 3-4 days.

Side effects after such dermal fillers are normal. You can make ice compresses. It is recommended to drink plenty of water. The plastic surgeon can suggest useful methods to speed up healing. The visible change will be noticed with full recovery. The effect and permanence time of the face-filling materials vary, but the results of this application are not permanent.
