Face Filling Treatment and Prices 2020

Face filling prices depend on the filler brand to be used and the volume of the treatment area. While one filling may be sufficient for one line of a patient, 2-3 fillings may not be enough for another patient. This directly affects the price.

You should be examined by your doctor to determine the price of the filling. Whichever treatment you choose, don't expect it to be cheap. The best way to get an accurate forecast is to schedule a consultation or call your doctor.

There is a huge price range depending on the location, the number of units, and the specialist fees you choose (some may charge more for specific techniques or targeted treatments). In addition, the size of treatment area will also determine the price you will pay.

Facial filler treatment is a cosmetic dermatological procedure used to minimize the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles to restore a youthful appearance.

It is a great treatment option for those who want to eliminate signs of aging and do not want to do invasive treatments such as a traditional face lift.

Facial filling treatment works on the principle of filling the facial areas that are prone to sagging, in order to restore the body's natural volume and fullness. While this process does not bring permanent results, it does offer a simpler, safer and cheaper way to look younger.

Who Should Have Face Fillers and What Are The Expected Results?

Dermal fillers treatment is the most beneficial option for patients with following skin aging symptoms:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Acaryote scars
  • Scratched skin

On the other hand, facial filler treatment is not safe for you if you are taking blood thinning medications, including Aspirin, vitamin E or any type of NSAID. In addition, the procedures and materials used in face filling treatment are expected to temporarily correct the surface defects on the facial skin.

The time until achieving the expected results may vary depending on the product used. When facial fillers are only injected into the skin, the treatment does not require a long recovery and downtime.

Patients can return to their normal routine after the procedure as long as they avoid strenuous activities and excessive sun exposure, Meanwhile, normal symptoms are expected to disappear a few days after the procedure.

How Does Face Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers make the face look firmer and smoother by lifting or filling certain areas of the face. It is most commonly used for skin conditions that create a hollow appearance and sagging. In addition, the specific method of how the procedure works depends on the type of fillers used.

Available options include: Hyaluronic acid - A hyaluronic acid filler, the most commonly used dermal filler type, works by pulling fluid into the specified part of the face that needs to be lifted.

This ingredient is used in popular filler brands such as Juvederm, Captique and Restylane; The effects of these fillers typically last about 9 months to 1 year. Fat graft - A fat graft, also known as autologous fat, refers to fat cells taken from another part of the patient's own body and then injected into the recipient area. Because the injected filler is made of real human fat, the effects of this type of treatment can last for years.

Filler brands like Polymer - Sculptra use a human-made and biodegradable polymer material. This is another long-lasting option with effects that last up to two years. Calcium hydroxyapatite - This is the main ingredient used in another popular filler brand Radiesse, which can reduce wrinkles and skin aging for up to 12 months. Bovine collagen - Fillers like Zyderm and Zyplast use bovine collagen.

However, due to the nature of this substance, the patient should undergo an allergy test at least 4 weeks before starting treatment to ensure that there is no adverse reaction to the injectable filler.

Microscopic plastic beads - Since permanent results are not provided with bovine collagen treatment, they are often mixed with microscopic beads made of polymethyl methacrylate or PMMA that remain under the skin even when collagen melts; therefore, they effectively extend the effects of treatment for at least 5 years. Permanent soft tissue filler (Artefill) - This filler is used to correct deep wrinkles around the mouth. The body cannot absorb this type of filler, so it does not require re-injection.

Permanent soft tissue filling is generally not recommended or used as the first facial filling treatment. Filling treatment can be performed by a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon.

Regardless of which material is used as the filler, most of the process is usually the same. The patient first receives a local anesthetic to anesthetize the facial area. When the anesthesia is given, the surgeon or dermatologist injects the filler into the predetermined area just under the skin.

However, the fat to be used for fat grafting is first collected from another part of the body. Each procedure will take about 15 minutes. However, depending on the severity of the condition and the size of treatment area, successful sessions may require a relatively long time. So each session is applied at minimum two weeks interval.

Possible Risks and Complications

Facial filling treatment sessions may cause some symptoms right after each procedure. The following symptoms are normal and temporary, usually lasting up to 3 days after the procedure:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Itching

If symptoms do not disappear after 3 days or appear to be getting worse, it is best to go back to the dermatologist or surgeon who performed the procedure. Long-term symptoms may be signs of possible complications caused by dermal fillers, including:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Bruise

Allergic reactions including rashes, hives, and swelling as the most common Symptoms similar to flu Granulomas or nodules that develop under the skin at the treatment site and become lumps In addition, some serious and potentially life-threatening complications have been reported, such as the following, but these seem very rare.

  • Anaphylactic shock
  • Blood poisoning
  • Necrosis or breakdown of the skin
  • Blindness caused by a blood clot in the retinal artery
  • Abscess

Due to the large number of dermatological clinics and doctors offering dermal fillers, patients are advised to pay more attention when choosing the doctor. There is a risk that the fillers used are not included in those approved by the health ministry, and this exposes the patient to the possibility of uncontrolled adverse reactions.

Duration of Face Filler Injections

The average length of facial filler injections is about 10 to 20 minutes per session, depending on the person and the size of treatment area.

Facial filler injections require very little downtime, allowing patients to return to work and normal activities immediately after treatment. However, during the first 24 hours, individuals may be reminded to avoid strenuous activities and exposure to excessive sun or heat.

Injectable Fillers Results

In general, the results of most injectable fillers are temporary; usually lasts from a few months to a year. This depends on the type of facial fillers or type of filler injections. Additional treatment sessions are recommended for optimal results.

A facial filler or injectable fillers treatment requires a series of small injections at the subcutaneous dermal levels located under the skin surface. The amount of substance depends on the depth and size of skin disorders and wrinkles.

What Should You Know Before Dermal Face Fillers?

Fuller cheeks, smooth skin and fuller lips: while some individuals have these naturally, some of us achieve this result with the help of dermal fillers at dermatologists. If you can't tell exactly what category a celebrity or someone you know fits into, that's the point.

Having the latest injectable treatments has become quite easy with the benefits of today's technology. In addition, these treatments are designed to be long-lasting and natural and elegant in accordance with the skin structure. In addition, going to a reputable doctor is the best factor to help you understand the procedures you will encounter.

Fillers Made of Hyaluronic Acid Is The Most Popular Filling Treatment Collagen used to be a common filler, but nowadays most fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm use hyaluronic acid. Thanks to its ability to retain moisture, hyaluronic acid is responsible for giving the skin a fuller watery appearance.

It is also used to moisturize the skin topically. Also, you cannot restore the missing volume with a cream or serum, but you can overcome this problem with injectable hyaluronic acid. Once injected in the same way, it can contribute to natural fullness effect or replenish your body's natural production of hyaluronic acid, which decreases with age. One Injection

May Make Your Skin Look Fuller And Smooth For A Few Months or More One of the reasons why injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are becoming increasingly popular is their success in their ability to add volume and reduce wrinkles with a single visit to the doctor.

Results typically last three to six months, depending on where the injection is located. Research also shows that HA injections can stimulate collagen production and lead to fresher looking skin in the long term.

Good Fillers Are Unnoticable

Trout pout and duck lips are the definite signs of the fillers. But when injected by an expert, the filling should look natural.

The changes we will create on your face at the clinic of Specialist Dermatologist Hande Ulusal are so subtle that no one will notice. It is the result of a more pleasant and successful filling procedure instead of clearly noticeable fillers, just like someone says you 'Oh, I have never noticed that your eyes are green'.

There May Be Bad Fillers But You Don’t Have To Keep That

If you are not pleased with how your fillers look, do not worry because we can correct this in most situations.

Dermatologist can inject an additional fillers substance in order to provide balance or completely solve the problem. There is a great fact especially about hyaluronic acid fillers that we have an injectable enzyme which can dissolve the injected substance.

Fillers Injection Should Not Be Done For Some Cases

Although fillers are considered safe, there are several reasons for delaying an injection. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or fighting a sinus infection, it is best to stay away from fillers as any infection in the face area can spread to injection site. And here is one more thing you might not think of.

Do not get any fillings just before dental cleaning or other dental treatments. These procedures create pressure and stretching of the face, which could potentially misplace fillers. It is ideal to wait at least a few days, or preferably a week.

If You Like How Your Fillers Look, You Need To Come Back For More

After about six months, hyaluronic acid fillers are naturally dissolved by the body. Therefore, you need to touch up once or twice a year to keep this pleasant appearance. However, if you just want to try fillings once or twice, this is good news because their effects will fade without long-term risks. It is important to note that fillers do not completely stop aging of the skin, so you may need more fillers to get the same results over time.

Pain Is Usually “Minimal”

Many people avoid the idea of a huge needle approaching their face. It may be uncomfortable, but it is not necessary to worry about this. Generally, the feeling you will experience is classified as "minimal pain". In addition, the feeling of neuromodulators can be considered as the same feeling you feel during bloodletting. Dermal fillers are a step, but your dermatologist or surgeon will offer a anesthesia cream prior to treatment in order to reduce insertion pain. In addition, your doctor may also cool the area.

Avoid Black Market Fillers

Dermal filler procedures can be expensive, which has led some consumers to resort online black market in order to buy do-it-yourself fillers. Today, there have been multiple reports of dangerous complications caused from self-injection of fillers by non-health professionals in many media outlets and medical literature. One risk is that fillers purchased online can contain a variety of non-sterile ingredients such as hair gel. When injected, these substances can cause allergic reactions, infections, and death of skin cells. Another risk is that the wrong injection technique can lead not only to swelling and softening, but also to more serious side effects such as death of skin cells and embolism that causes blindness.
