We aim to treat the problematic and deficient areas, with Dermal Fillers. We are inject under the
skin to remove wrinkles, sagging, collapse, scars and shape, to make them functional.
Over the years, there is a decrease in adipose tissue, collagen and elastic fibers in the skin layers. Wrinkles and sagging occur especially in the under-eye area, lips, chin area, nose, nasolabial area, forehead area. Filling injection can be used successfully in sagging and wrinkles in the middle and lower parts of the face. It must be applied by a doctor who has experience in this field. Because only an experienced doctor can judge which point and dose of the filler to be injected. A special filler is used for dermal fillers.
What is the drug used in skin filling and what is its content?
Depending on the active ingredients they contain, dermal fillers vary in duration and strength. The most commonly used fillers in clinical practice are products containing hyaluronic acid active ingredient.
Hyaluronic can contain almost a thousand times more water than its own volume. This is very important for skin health, preserving the youth of the skin, preventing wrinkles and making it look tight. Many problems in the skin are experienced due to the lack and loss of hyaluronic acid. Namely, from a lack of water and hyaluronic acid. For this reason, with skin filling, both the appearance is corrected and the skin health is supported by injecting the substances needed into the skin.
Another important feature of this substance is that, since it is naturally present in the body, there is no risk of causing an allergic reaction in the person who is applied. If you are not satisfied with the result, it can be dissolved immediately with a substance called hyalurinase.
In Which Areas Can Skin Filling Be Performed?
Skin filling procedures; It can be applied to any area in the face area. Apart from this, in addition to décolleté, neck, hands, feet and volume-adding surgeries, skin fillings are also performed on areas such as the chest, hips, calves and arms.

Do you feel pain in the filling application?
Filling applications are done with needle and cannula. Anesthetic cream is applied before the procedure. The pain of the procedure is reduced. Therefore, pain is not felt much during the procedure.
When will the results of the filling treatment be seen?
After the filling is done, the results due to the volume effect are immediately visible. Since the fillings containing hyaluronic acid retain water, the actual appearance emerges after a month.
How long is the effect of the filling treatment?
Although the duration of permanence varies from person to person, it is about 6-18 months depending on the technology of making the substance. Since each filling active ingredient activates the tissue formation under the skin, even if the fillings melt completely, their effectiveness continues compared to before the procedure.
What are the side effects of the filling application?
As with all non-permanent fillings, temporary redness, swelling, pain, bruising or tenderness in the filling area may occur. Very rarely, triggering herpes, atherosclerosis and skin infections may occur. That’s why I recommend it to be done by experienced physicians who are experts in this field.
Can a filler application be ineffective sometimes?
Filling applications are often effective when the appropriate dose and appropriate product are selected. However, sometimes the amount of substance made may not be enough. Patients who do not open the required number of tubes may see the results as insufficient. In addition, the density and quality of the filler used affect the results.
How long do filler injections affect work and social life?
After the application, the person can return to his routine activities immediately. Rarely, temporary bruising and redness may occur. Bruises can be covered with make-up.
What should be considered before the filling process?
Those who use drugs that increase bruising, aspirin and painkillers, blood thinners, green tea, gingko, garlic, ginseng, echinacea, fish oil, vitamin C and vitamin E, have a high risk of bruising. If possible, it is beneficial not to take these drugs 5-7 days before the treatment.
What should be considered after the filling process?
After the treatment, it is necessary to avoid excessive heat (such as bathing, sunbathing, solarium), excessive exercise and excessive mimic movements for a few days. Try to stay in the supine position while lying down.
Can filler be used with other skin rejuvenation methods?
The filler is performed after the skin rejuvenating laser, radiofrequency, focused ultrasound and PRP procedures, increasing the effects of the procedures on sagging, wrinkle and scar treatments. Efficiency of fillings is increased by performing mesotherapy after filling. Much better results are achieved by filling before or after Botox.
Who Cannot Be Applied to Face and Lip Filling?
Your suitability for skin fillers is in line with your health and hormonal status. As with all aesthetic procedures,
- Pregnancy, breastfeeding
- Conditions such as drug treatment processes constitute an obstacle in the application of skin filling.
Because, although hyaluronic acid, which is the content of the filler, is a polysaccharide that exists in our body, there is a possibility of causing any negative effects if hyaluronic acid and other substances are injected as filler in the cases listed above. For this reason, it is inconvenient to apply as much as the patients who meet these criteria are suitable for skin filling.
