Depending on a number of factors, especially ageing, hyaluronic acid and skin elasticity decrease in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for the water retention capacity of the skin as a strong connective tissue. Therefore, it is very important to replace the decreasing hyaluronic acid in the skin.
As a result of the decrease in hyaluronic acid and other changes in the skin, repetitive mimic movements cause wrinkles on the skin. The increase in wrinkles over time leads to negative effects on facial aesthetics and perspective. Various imperfections that occur in certain areas of the face gain prominence. When the fat tissue in the facial area decreases and the supporting effect of connective tissue disappears, sagging occurs with the effect of gravity. Dermal filler treatment is used to restore the volume lost on the face, soften the lines, alleviate wrinkles and improve facial contours.
What is Dermal Filler?
Dermal filler treatment can be applied by injection to eliminate volume and elasticity losses, wrinkles, sagging, asymmetry and contour disorders that occur in the skin due to various factors such as aging, genetic factors, trauma, gravity and harmful effects of sun rays.
Dermal fillers usually contain hyaluronic acid and are not permanent. Due to their properties, the body gradually absorbs dermal fillers for periods ranging from 6 to 24 months after application. Permanence periods may vary according to their density and cross-link content. Hyaluronic acid fillers may also vary according to the application area and the desired effect.
Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid provide effects such as skin tightening, volumisation and lifting. It also increases tissue regeneration and collagen production. For this reason, after being absorbed by the body, the area gets a better appearance than before the injection.
