What is Dermal Filling Content, Is It Safe? How is their permanence?

To date, many countries have produced filling products with different contents and permanence. Many of them were either discontinued or not preferred due to their undesirable effects. For this reason, fillings that can be used safely should be preferred.


Although there are certain criteria for this, the drug that should guide patients is whether it has Ministry of Health approval, American pharmaceutical association approval (FDA), and certificates of conformity (CE). Most filler brands contain hyaluronic acid. This substance, which is one of the basic structural elements of the human body, is produced in a laboratory environment. The excess of chemical cross-links at the production stage determines the permanence of the filler.


This substance is absorbed in the body over time. Their permanence is around 6-12 months. Fillings containing calcium hydroxyapatite; They are fillers combined with hyaluronic acids. Calcium hydroxyapatite particles are one of the building blocks of bone. Permanence is higher than hyaluronic acid fillers. Studies have shown that fillers containing calcium hydroxyapatite also increase collagen synthesis in the skin. In addition, fillers are containing Poly-L-lactic Acid, Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA).

Filling (dermal filler) is a popular aesthetic treatment method used to correct skin wrinkles, volume loss or facial lines.


Reducing Wrinkles: Fillers are effective in reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles, especially around the face. They are especially used in areas such as nasolabial lines, marionette lines and lines around the lips.


Volume Increase: Fillers can correct volume loss in the face. For example, they can be used to highlight cheekbones or plump lips.


Natural Appearance: When applied correctly, fillers can give the skin a natural appearance. They do not give the person a swollen or artificial appearance.


Fast Results: Filling applications generally provide fast results. Since the recovery period after treatment is short, people can quickly return to their daily activities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, it is stated correctly. Hyaluronic acid lip filler is generally used to increase the volume of the lips or reduce fine lines around the lips. This type of filler usually has a temporary effect and results may vary from person to person. When hyaluronic acid is used as a filler, the duration of effect usually lasts between 6 and 12 months. After this period, lip filler may need to be repeated.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: Filler application is generally not recommended during pregnancy or in breastfeeding mothers. Because during these periods, the body goes through hormonal changes and the skin may become sensitive. The safety and effects of fillers were not fully understood at this time.


Clotting Disorder (Hemophilia): People with clotting disorders (e.g., hemophilia) may be at higher risk of bleeding at the application site. Minor bleeding may occur when fillers are injected, so filler application may not be recommended for such people.
