Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are now indispensible part of aesthetic medicine. Mostly used for facial indications, the HA fillers can be used in different parts of our body for volume restoration and their lifting effect. In this article, we will consider face applications of hyaluronic acid fillers. There are filler materials other than hyaluronic acid, but the most biocompatible one with constant results is hyaluronic acid.
First, let’s talk about the structure of hyaluronic acid. It is an organic material, which already exists in our body in connective tissue and cartilages. The hyaluronic acid that we use in aesthetic medicine is synthetic. The HA fillers are produced by a vast number of companies around the world and are sold under different brands. The most important thing that your doctor should consider is that the brand should be FDA or CE approved. The HA filler are biocompatible and do not cause allergic reaction in body. It is metabolized in one to two years.
In face, we use hyaluronic acid fillers for malar augmentation, lip augmentation, rejuvenation around the eyes, nasolabial groove (the lines next to our mouth), chin enlargement, temporal region and so on. In every region of the face the injection technique and the type of the filler product vary. For example, for the tear trough deformity under the eyes, the filler should be softer and the vessels should be cared to avoid an intravascular injection. In the cheekbone, more rigid fillers should be used to have a lift and highlight effect. In the lips, the shape of the lips is important in planning the filler injection. Lip augmentation should be done carefully to preserve the natural characteristics of the lip and have a natural and attractive result. Otherwise the lips will be plump and only large and will reduce the show of upper teeth, which is also a sign of beauty and youth.
Dr. Huseyin Guner has purified his technique with hyaluronic acid fillers in his twenty years of experience. His priorities in facial beautification and rejuvenation are natural results, understanding the patient and his/her needs, selecting the best technique, surgical or non-surgical, for the patient and provide the best treatment plan. It should be known that each aesthetic application or treatment is patient-specific and not all applications are appropriate for everyone. A thorough consultation and examination is necessary to achieve the best results.
