The method dermal filler injection is one of the most preferred methods for removing skin lines and wrinkles. 

Elasticity of our skin diminishes over time with aging and it leads to wrinkles and sagging. Rejuvenating cosmetic interventions remove these effects of aging and give us a younger look.

The method filler injection is generally used for removing wrinkles, correcting the skin contour deficiencies and augmenting lips. You can use fillers for having a younger look on your face.

The main purpose in dermal filler applications is to treat the most natural and beautiful result with the least amount of filler possible. In dermal filler injections, the experience of the doctor is very important because unnatural results can be obtained when a little more is done than necessary.

For example nasolabial lines are lines specific to humans only. They deepen with aging. Reducing the depth of nasolabial lines gives a natural and more youthful appearance.

What are Dermal Filler Applications?

Dermal fillersDermal Filler injections generally revitalize the skin by increasing the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin, thus instantly reducing the appearance of certain lines and wrinkles on the face and giving the face a softer appearance.

The filler is a tissue-friendly, soft, injectable gel composed of stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid.

Thanks to this filling method, the nutrients entering the body are easily transported and the water balance in the skin is regulated. The results of filler injections are quite long-lasting, but they are not permanent.

For Which Purpose is Dermal Filler Applied?

The purpose of filler injection is giving the face a younger look. This medical aesthetic application that becomes effective in a short time helps regain skin’s elasticity, renewal of the decreased fat layer and erasure of the wrinkles in the skin caused by collagen deficiency.

Particularly with aging, the lower part of the face starts to sag. With the effect of such sagging, people look older and paler than they really are. Filler applications to the face make skin look plumper and create a lifting effect in the face. Filler aesthetics also allow skin to treat scars and acne.

Filler injections are a frequently preferred dermo cosmetic method for correcting facial lines and wrinkles, creating fuller lips, shaping the structures that define the facial features such as cheeks and chin, and revitalizing the skin. Moreover, the fact that it can be applied in the desired dose and form is the reason for the preference of many people.

As a Result of Filler Injections;

  • Thin lips are plumped
  • Facial contour is improved
  • Facial wrinkles are smoothed
  • The appearance of scars is improved
  • Contour deformities on the face are reconstructed

What is a Facial Filler Injection?

Facial filler injection removes the hollowness in skin. With the reduced collagen and fat tissue, hollowing may occur in people’s faces. This makes people older and less healthy. 

With facial filler injection, one can get rid of that unhealthy look within 20-30 minutes only. You can have younger and plumper facial features. Facial filler application enhances cheekbones, removes wrinkles in the fore neck and around the mouth. Facial filler application is also chosen to raise the nose, make eyebrows look upturned and emphasize lips.

This method is applied not only to reduce the signs of aging or to have a youthful appearance, but also to reshape the face, non-surgical face lift (liquid face lift) and restore the lost volume and moisture of your face.

Therefore, you can choose face filler injections at young ages to complete anatomically incompatible areas with the face. In order to obtain successful results in face filler injections, it is necessary to analyze the existing problems of the patients very well and in detail, as well as to understand their complaints and expectations correctly and to make appropriate referrals when necessary. With the right application, you can have a flawless appearance.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Dermal FillersHyaluronic acid is a natural sugar-derived molecule found all over the human body, wherever hydration and lubrication are needed such as non-surgical facial fillers and dermal fillers. It’s abundant in your skin, joints and even your brain! 

With the aging process, fine lines signs of aging appear such as the production of hyaluronic acid (HA) begins to wane, along with collagen and elastin.

These elements are responsible for youthful-looking, plump skin, so that the loss will naturally translate to sagging, wrinkles and skin dehydration.

We can lose fat and muscle mass on the areas of the face over time. When fat pads begin to shrink, volume loss, hollows and facial tissue sagging may result, making signs of aging appear.

Fillers are commonly used in areas of the face to bring back the youthful appearance.

What is Hyaluronic Acid Filler?

Hyaluronic acid, which is known to everyone who cares about skin care, has many other benefits.

Known as a source of moisture, this substance provides the necessary moisture support to dry skin. This substance, which has a positive effect against skin abrasions, moisture loss, reflux, joint disorders and even chronic tiredness, has a very important role in the joints.

However, it still plays the most active role in skin care. Since this hyaluronic acid is normally found in the skin, connective tissue and joints in our body, it can be produced on its own.

Properly manufactured and FDA-approved, hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our bodies and our immune system rarely reacts.

What Does HA Dermal Filler Do?

HA hyaluronic acid is hydrophilic – meaning it loves water and binds with water molecules in the skin. There are a variety of dermal filler materials available today, and some contain a mixture of HA hyaluronic acid with other dermal fillers materials, but a standard fan favorite for patients and injectors alike are the temporary, 100% natural and non-surgical HA hyaluronic acid dermal fillers / dermal gels. 

Hyaluronic acid molecules are crosslinked using different methods depending on the manufacturer. Cross-linking technologies can impart specific characteristics of visco-elasticity and change how dermal fillers and facial fillers are integrated into the tissue.

There are thick, firm gel dermal fillers used to build up large, foundational facial structures like cheeks. 

Alternatively, thinner, more liquid dermal fillers are made to work well just under the skin surface and in delicate areas like the under eye and oral region.

All these changes, which are observed in different ways from person to person in different regions, lead to a deterioration in the harmony that creates the perception of beauty between the upper middle and lower face proportions. This causes many people to resort to the filling method. But each region is treated differently. 

For example; Forms with a hard structure and strong bonds are preferred to increase volume in deep fat planes in the mid-face area, forms that do not contain soft and strong bonds in the tear trough, and forms that adapt to movement in superficial and active areas are preferred.

This is exactly why the most important advantage of hyaluronic acid fillers is that the fillers can be found at any time in the desired amount and content.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Usually Last?

The effect time of hyaluronic acid dermal filler varies between 6 and 24 months on average. Two factors determine the effect time of dermal filler. The first of these factors is the amount of cross-link contained in the applied filler and the hyaluronic acid concentration (thickness). As the thickness of the dermal filler increases, the duration and hardness of the dermal filler increase. 

Hyaluronic acid dermal filler is classified in 4 different thicknesses (1 thinnest and softest, 4 thickest and hardest). Number 4, that is, thick and hard fillings are applied to deep tissues such as the chin. Thin and soft number 1 dermal filler is applied to areas such as under the eyes. 

Thick fillers are not applied to the superficial area because the filler may be obvious from the surface of skin. Filler applied to the under-eye area is the thinnest filler.

These fillers last for 9 months on average, thicker fillers applied to the lip area for 12 months on average, fillers applied to the mid-face area for an average of 18 months, and thick fillers applied to the chin area for an average of 24 months.

These specified times may vary from person to person, for most of the people these times are correct. For some people, this period is longer, while for others, this period is shorter.

Hyaluronic acid is a connective tissue element that is repeatedly synthesized and destroyed in almost all our tissues every day. The degradation process is mediated by the enzyme (hyaluronidase).

Dermal filler is also destroyed by the same mechanism. For this reason, the working speed of the enzyme can affect the permanence time of the dermal filler. In short, the fillers may disappear earlier in people with high enzyme activity, and the fillers may disappear later in people with low enzyme activity.

Where Can Dermal Filler be Applied?

Lip fillers, facial fillers and under eye fillers are used for creating a younger and more dynamic look on people’s faces. Facial fillers can be applied to patients’ cheekbone, forehead, tear troughs, nose, chin, lower chin line, eyebrows, acne scars.

Filler Injection Areas in the Face are Usually as Follows;

  • The forehead is shaped.
  • The vertical lines between the eyebrows are removed.
  • The eyebrows are lifted.
  • The cheekbones are highlighted.
  • Your nose is shaped.
  • Lips become fuller.
  • Lip corners are lifted.
  • The chin line is highlighted.
  • Small jaw tips are enlarged.
  • The superficial lines on different parts of the face are removed.
  • And finally, the skin structure is improved.

What is Lip Filler?

Lip FillerWith the injection of lip filler, both volume and shape are given to the lips. In addition, asymmetries in the lips are treated with lip filler injection. In the injection of lip filler with the number 2 thickness are applied most frequently.

What is a Natural Lip Shape?

There are some proportions for natural lips. For example, when viewed from the side profile, the upper lip should stand 1-2 mm ahead of the lower lip, and when viewed from the opposite side, the lower lip should appear slightly thicker than the upper lip.

When lip filler is injected, you should not curl your lips while talking with the effect of the lip filler, and you should feel very comfortable while kissing (should not be understood as lip filler).

As a result of the lip filler injection, your lip should be as natural as your own tissue. The technique to be applied and the lip filler to be used are very important for this.

Lip Filler Injection

Before lip filler is applied, an anesthetic cream is applied to the lip and anesthetized. It is applied by injection into the areas to be applied after the lip becomes anesthetized.

The self-anesthetic form of the lip filler to be applied (with lidocaine) facilitates the injection. Lip filler gains shape as soon as it is applied. There may be slight swelling in the first few days after the injection, after 1-2 weeks the lip shape is completely settled.

What is an Under Eye Filler?

The area around the eyes where the effects of aging first appear, especially on the face, is the sockets around the eyes. The area around the eyes can be treated with HA dermal filler.

Dermal filler injection can be applied to the under eye and upper eye sockets areas. When dermal filler is applied to the sockets under the eye, the refraction of the light in this area will be alleviated and a brighter, flatter and younger appearance is obtained.

HA dermal filler applied to the undereye area is very thin and soft (1st thickness HA dermal filler) because the skin is thin and the problem is more superficial. The application is made with a blunt end cannula.

What is Nose Filler?

Nose filler is a preferred method for people who do not plan to have nose surgery. In the application of nose filler, fillers with 2nd degree thickness are more preferred. It is applied using a needle or cannula.

Before the nose filler is done, the nose should be examined by an experienced doctor, according to the result, if the doctor deems it appropriate, the nose filler procedure should be performed.

Nose filler is a process that gives volume as a result, as it is applied in other fillers. For example, if the person has a belt on his nose and the reason for the belt is a deep depression in the root of the nose between the nose and forehead, a filler injection can be applied to this area to hide the bridge of the nose. However, if there is no such collapse, the belt cannot be destroyed, while the filling does not look natural.

Does Dermal Filler Look Fake?

This is a significant question for many people who visit a plastic surgeon- whether they’re seeking a facelift procedure or non-surgical, injectable facial rejuvenation. Everyone wants to look younger, healthy and attractive, but few people would like to appear fake. 

The worries that unnatural looking results can prevent some people from taking the next step and scheduling their treatment. We’ll explain how non-surgical injectable fillers results can be made beautifully realistic and subtle, as well as a few tips you need to know.

Do not be intimidated by the excessively voluminous and dull expressions on the screens. Because these are all faulty examples. This method is a harmless method where you can have a natural appearance thanks to the right dose, the right material and the right injection points. Thanks to filler injections, you can get a younger look.

How is Dermal Filler Applied?

Filler injection is an extremely easy procedure which does not require anesthesia. It takes only 30 minutes and you can get back to work and everyday life right after the treatment. At first, the application area is prepared for filler injection. Then, the filler is injected into the points to be filled.

Depending on the person’s need, sometimes filler is applied to a single point and filler application is completed by injection into several points at other times.

After the procedure, side effects such as bruises and swelling may be observed. However, all these side effects disappear and a relaxed and younger look is gained within a few days.

Of course, some anatomical points should be paid attention to while performing the filler injections. For example; In the case of increasing the volume of deep fat planes in the mid-face area, it can reduce the problems in the tear trough area next to the nose or in the nasolabial areas next to the nose, and in the same way, the volume increase in the cheekbones can reduce the skin sagging in the lower jaw line.

For this reason, it is recommended to evaluate the midface area before filling the lacrimal groove and, if there is a significant loss of volume in this area, first of all, correct the problem in the midface area.

Frequently Asked Questions with Dermal Filler

Is Dermal Filler Injection Painful?

Filler injection is completely pain free. Before the application, anesthetic cream is applied to your skin locally to make you feel no pain. Then, the filler is injected with a fine needle.

After the filler injection, it is normal to feel a slight tingling in the application area. This tingling will automatically disappear within a few hours.

In this type of filler injections, which are usually made with needles, no significant pain or discomfort is felt. However, local anesthesia is applied just before the application in injections made to very sensitive areas such as the lips. In addition, fillers have some anesthesia in the content.

Entry points in cannulated applications increase the comfort of the procedure. For this reason, many patients describe the pain they feel during the procedure as a mosquito bite.

Which is Better Botox or Fillers?

Dermal filler application is effective on wrinkles that occur when we cannot make static mimics. Botulinum toxin application is effective on wrinkles caused by mimics.

For example, if the patient has transverse wrinkles on the forehead and vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows, the muscles should be loosened with botox first.

The reason for this is; Since the muscles will still be active when the fractures are filled with dermal fillers, a new fracture line may occur right next to the filled fracture.

Are Dermal Fillers Worth It?

Permanence of filler injection’s results varies depending on the injected substance. The effects of natural looking fillers remain for 6 months to one year in general.

If you want your filler to look more permanent, we recommend you to get it renewed. 60% of fat-based fillers melt 6 months after the application, while the remaining is permanent for longer.

At this stage, fat tissue in your body becomes prominent. When you lose weight, fat tissues in your body will also be lost naturally. Lip fillers’ life is generally 6 months. After 6 months, the filler in your lips melts down and your lip will relapse.

Since hyaluronic acids are absorbed by the body over time, the effect usually varies between 8 and 12 months depending on the application area, the cross-link structure of the filler used and the tissue characteristics of the patient. The permanence of the fillers applied especially in inactive areas such as the nose can last up to 2-3 years.
