Injectable fillers are injections containing hyaluronic acid that can be used to fill in wrinkles, adjust facial features and reinvigorate the skin.
Hyaluronic acid, the primary component of injectable fillers, is our skin’s quintessential moisturiser and its texture allows it to shape the face. It helps fill in wrinkles in the forehead or around the mouth or nose area or in the neck area, soften and reinvigorate the middle area of the cheek or contour a higher cheekbone or a sharper jawline. In addition, we can provide volume to the lips or make them more symmetrical if they are asymmetrical. By using a hyaluronic acid preparation, we can moisturise the skin, provide toning and elasticity and improve skin quality overall.
Hyaluronic acid is essentially a long chain of sugar that naturally exists in our skin’s deeper layer, which is called the dermis. The hyaluronic acid molecule can bind water to itself and store it in the dermis. Due to the normal aging process, as well as premature aging, these chains begin to degrade into smaller parts or disappear completely. For example, photoaging as a result of sun exposure greatly conduces the degradation of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is the thing that provides youthfulness, elasticity and moisture to our skin. Without it, the skin becomes faded, dry, looser and fine wrinkles start to occur.
Depending on the aim of the filler, the preparations are graded from softest to strongest. Lidocaine has been added into some preparations, which also provides instant numbing during the procedure. Injectable fillers can be administered using different techniques; some are shallow, others are deeper. The preparation and procedure choices are explained on-location with a specialist through evaluating the client and their needs on an individual basis.

Recovery should be fairly quick and simple; getting filler is also known as the ‘lunch break procedure’.
There may be some redness, slight bruising, contusions, sensitive skin, numbness or swelling after the injection procedure. Larger swelling may be expected in the case of lip injections, but that should end the following day. An ice pack can be used in the injection area, if necessary.
Repeated injections for wrinkles are given after 8-12 months, and for lips after 6-8 months. However, the results are individual and also depend on the skin’s characteristics and structure.
An unfavourable result of injectable filler can be dissolved and adjusted with a special substance – hyaluronidase. In the case of any doubts or concerns, feel free to contact the specialist who performed the procedure via customer support.
