The most widely used procedure for filling facial wrinkles is filler injections. With this process, lips, lines, wrinkles and facial folds are treated. Besides being quick and easy to apply, it allows immediate visible results. Produced as a transparent and colorless gel, the filler, when placed on the upper part of your skin, mixes with your own skin tone (color) and creates integrity.
As people age, the collagen and elastic fibers under the skin begin to break down and age. While these breakouts are part of our natural aging process, excessive frowning, squinting, smoking, smiling, and other facial expressions also contribute to breakouts.
The filler is injected into the areas where the body’s own hyaluronic acid density decreases. It provides treatment by creating volume in the injected areas. Results are obtained very quickly and there are no scars as a result of injections.
The filler is injected with a tiny needle, under the skin, into your own collagen under the wrinkle. The number of injections required varies depending on the depth and length of the wrinkle. Several injections may be required.
Restylane is not of animal origin like other biodegradable fillers. This phenomenon not only minimizes allergic reactions, but also prevents the transmission of animal-specific diseases to humans. There may be mild swelling in the treated area that lasts for several hours. Light bruises that can be easily covered with make-up can be seen. Allergic reactions are very rare and may be in the form of redness, itching or stiffness at the injection site. Therefore, the use of filler is completely safe and does not require any pre-treatment testing. You can return to your normal activities immediately after filler injections. Depending on the treated area, the results are permanent for a period of 3-6 months.
Since the filler gives a natural appearance, there is no need to take tissue from another part of your body. The filler can be used in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peeling, laser and even face lift operations.
