In fact, facial fillers that are quick, painless, and safe are one of the most used solutions to fight aging and smooth wrinkles. Let’s see what they are, how they act, what the different contraindications and prices are.
Dermal fillers: what are they?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances in the subcutaneous tissue that are employed to correct some skin imperfections such as wrinkles or acne and to reduce the signs of aging. They are called fillers because they tend to "fill" the lines of the face and plump the cheeks or lips.
In practice, facial fillers are better than invasive procedures and other painful treatments. In addition, if they are performed correctly, they will give an absolutely natural result.
Let’s try to understand more details about dermal fillers through this little practical guide, bearing in mind that you always have to rely on qualified professionals in Turkey, Istanbul, and Antalya in order to reduce the possibility of complications.
When should you use Dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are useful when you want to fill the wrinkles around the eyes (the so-called crow’s feet), correct the nasolabial folds, increase the lip volume, smooth all the signs of aging, give a different shape to the cheekbones, or eliminate scars and marks left by acne or surgery.
How to choose the most suitable filler?
Before deciding to be injected with dermal filler, it is important to know the different types of fillers that exist in Turkey, Antalya, and Istanbul. The most common ones are definitely those with hyaluronic acid which is a natural polymer in the extracellular matrix.
Over time, hyaluronic acid tends to decrease and wrinkles and lines of expression appear. Hydration and firmness will return to the skin thanks to the injection of hyaluronic acid.
Added to that, our doctors will recommend collagen fillers in order to restore tone and firmness. They are appropriate to fill too thin lips or marks left by scars.
These two facial fillers are part of the so-called resorbable fillers, which are slowly reabsorbed by the body over time. However, they are different from the non-surgical facelift.
How are they used?
It should always be remembered that facial fillers are cosmetic treatments that must be performed by medical or specialized personnel in approved and certified hospitals and clinics. The first thing that should be done by the doctor is to conduct an interview with the patient to understand what is the blemish to be treated and evaluate the most suitable filler to solve the problem. Subsequently, a preliminary test is performed to avoid the onset of allergic reactions.
Injectable dermal fillers are performed on an outpatient basis and do not require anesthesia. In special cases, the doctor may decide to apply anesthetic creams to relieve the discomfort. The needles used for the injections are extremely thin and are inserted just below the superficial layer of the dermis.
After treatment, there may be some redness and swelling in the treated area, which go away within 24 to 48 hours. The duration relies on the type of filler, the patient’s lifestyle, and the operated area. For absorbable fillers, the results will last for 3 to 10 months.
What are the various contraindications?
Dermal fillers have no particular contraindications, unless there are allergies to certain substances or specific diseases. It is not advisable to make injections during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or with herpes infections.
What are the prices in Turkey and Antalya?
Injectable dermal fillers are not very expensive with Turquie Santé. If more limited areas are to be dealt with such as eye bags, nasolabial lines, the cheeks, marionette lines, the price of treatment will be different.
Of course, since more sessions are usually needed, the overall cost of treatment will be much higher. Moreover, the price of injections may also vary depending on the doctor who performs the treatment.
