Today, one of the most commonly applied methods in the field of aesthetics are practices performed with hyaluronic acid based filling materials. Filler injections are used in a wide range of fields from elimination of fine lines and wrinkles in the face to lip augmentation, from cheekbone augmentation to facelift.

Hyaluronic acid based fillings are cosmetic practices used to fill the fine lines and deep wrinkles that occur due to exposure to sun and aging as well as to reshape the face. Although its permanence depends on the density of the used product, hyaluronic acid based fillings generally last for 6 to 12 months and the result can be immediately seen. Before the procedure, the site is anesthetized with anesthetic cream. The procedure lasts 10 to 15 minutes. There is no recovery period. The effect emerges immediately and patients can return to their social lives.

Hyaluronic acid based fillers are the most commonly used fillers. The most important feature of this substance is that it is naturally found in the body; therefore, it does not cause allergic reaction for the patient. If the result is not satisfactory for the patient, the filler can be immediately melted with a substance called hyaluronidase.

Application fields of fillers include nasolabial lines (lines extending from margins of nose to lip margins), lines extending from lip margins down to the chin, fine lines over the lip, deep acne scars, lip augmentation and recontouring, elimination of collapse in infraorbital region, unclear and small chin and chin line, augmentation of cheekbone and cheek and regaining the lost volume and fullness in face due to aging.

As we get older, our lips start to get thinner and lose its shape and fullness. Some people may structurally have thin lips at younger ages. Fillings can be used to augment the lips, make lip contour more prominent and correct the asymmetry in lips.

The lines and wrinkles that start at both sides of nose and continue towards the lip margins and chin develop as fat tissue changes its place in time. These wrinkles cause a tired and old look in face. They can be toned down with filling practices.

Cheeks, temples and lower jaw regions lose both their fat tissue and volume and change their places with aging. Therefore, sagging occurs in face and skin becomes thinner. Augmenting the lower jaw, increasing volume of cheeks and temples with filling applications ensure a younger look in face.

Filling applications for lower eyelid and cheeks help masking the disorders such as under-eye bags and collapses. Lower eyelid distance can be shortened to ensure a rested and fresh look in the face.

While aging can cause changes in jaw region, some people structurally have a small or receding chin. Chin line can be strengthened and made more prominent with filling procedures.

Sagging eyelids and dropped eyebrows make individuals look older and tired. Lifting the eyebrows with filling procedures can help ensuring younger-looking eyes.
