What is Filler Injection?
The process of injecting gel-like agents under the skin aims to give the required volume to the area which has been lost while ensuring the smoothness of the skin. Thanks to this treatment which is frequently preferred by both men and women worldwide, people have a much younger and more aesthetic skin. Filler injection without a surgical procedure is learned and preferred by more and more people day by day.
On Which Sites Filler Injection is Applied?
Loss of volume is the most significant sign of aging. This condition, which usually manifests itself on the nose and mouth sites, causes the cheeks to collapse as the tissues become thinner. Thanks to dermal filler materials, wrinkles are corrected, and your lips become fleshy. Thus, the volume deficiencies are eliminated, giving the person a much younger appearance. Filler injection is applied for;
- Elimination of facial prolapses,
- Accentuating cheekbones,
- Elimination of wrinkles on nose wings or lip corners,
- Elimination of wrapping lines extending from the edge of the mouth to the chin,
- Shaping or plumping the lips,
- Elimination of wrinkles around the lips,
- Elimination of the lines between eyebrows,
- Shaping the eyebrows,
- Correction of the chin line,
- Lifting and shaping the nose,
- Clearing the acne or scars.
Why is Filler Injection Used?
In general, filler injection is used for the treatment of wrinkles. Filler injection is used especially to eliminate the lines around the nose and mouth, to add volume to the cheeks that have collapsed inwards, to correct the face symmetry and to remove wrinkles in the chin. In this application, where one session is sufficient, filling materials consist of natural and reliable agents. In filler injection, which is generally performed under local anaesthesia, the filling material is injected under the skin in the area where the volume is desired to be added. During this procedure, which lasts for an average of half an hour, no incision is required. Therefore, no scars occur.
What are the Filler Injection Materials?
A wide range of filling materials is available. The most preferred ones are;
- Hyaluronic Acid (H.A.)
- Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA)
- Autologous Fat Injection
Hyaluronic acid is the most preferred material among the filling materials injected into the face. By injecting this material into the tissues under the skin, deep lines and wrinkles are removed. This acid, naturally available in the structure of the skin, decreases with aging. For this reason, the formation of wrinkles comes to the fore due to the loss of water on the skin. Hyaluronic acid, which is produced synthetically in the laboratory environment today, ensures the sites where it is injected to gain moisture and weight. It also makes it possible to preserve the natural appearance because it does not affect the muscles.
This filling material, consisting of microscopic spheres, is generally ideal for the sites where a deep application will be performed. It is performed under local anaesthesia, as it is a painful application. The major difference in this material from others is its reversible effect.
Autologous Fat Injection:
The autologous fat obtained by using the patient’s own adipose tissue is injected into the desired site after filtering and the places with volume loss are filled. In this method, the surgical procedure must be performed to remove the fat from the patient.
