“Filler” is a generic term for gel products that are used to fill wrinkles or add volume to your face (and sometimes body). Most of these are made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a naturally occuring substance.
Filler gel is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.
Dr. Fatih Irmak only uses FDA approved filler gels and materials.
In common where do you inject the filler?
Common areas for filler are nasolabial folds (between your nose and the corner or your mouth), tear troughs (under eye), lips, cheeks, chin, and jawline.
What should I expect during a filler injection?
Before your appointment you should avoid ibuprofen, aspirin, aleve, and any other medications that increase bleeding and bruising. Fillers are placed with tiny needles or micro-cannulas around your face. Bruising is more common in some areas where the skin is thin, such as under the eyes.
What do yo expect to feel just after injection?
The filled area may swell, and you may look “overfilled” and bruised for a few days until the swelling subsides. You can reduce swelling faster by keeping your head of bed elevated while you sleep and icing the area. You will have your final result about a week after treatment.
When will I see results and how long does it last?
You will see results immediately after filler treatment. Once the swelling is gone about a week later, you will have your final result. Fillers last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending which filler is used.
What if I don’t like it?
There is a dissolving agent for Hyaluronic-Acid based fillers called Hyaluronidase that can be injected to dissolve any area of filler instantly.
