Turkey Medicals JCI hospital member and Medical Esthetician Doctor told you about the use of hyaluronic acid fillers, their benefits and who they are suitable for.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that can hold water up to 1000 times its own weight, which is produced naturally by the body. Therefore, its main function is to keep your tissues alive and moist. It is found in connective tissue, joints, eyes and, to a large extent, on the skin.


It makes the skin firmer and livelier.

Hyaluronic acid has many key roles to keep your skin hydrated and fuller. Roughly half of the hyaluronic acid in your body is found in your skin and acts as a natural moisturizer. Due to the natural aging process, stress, and bad conditions such as ultraviolet radiation from the sun, smoking, and air pollution, the level of hyaluronic acid decreases over time.

When hyaluronic acid serums are applied to the surface of the skin, they reduce wrinkles, redness, unhealthy skin appearance and dermatitis. Thus, the moistened skin becomes smoother and looks younger. It also protects the skin from free radical damage because it has antioxidant properties.


Hyaluronic acid also plays a role in wound healing and repair. Although it is found naturally in the skin, its concentrations increase when there is damage that requires repair. It helps wounds heal faster by regulating inflammation levels and sending signals to the body to create more blood flow in the damaged area. It is seen that applying to skin wounds reduces the size of wounds, reduces pain faster, or accelerates healing.

Hyaluronic acid also has antibacterial properties, so when applied directly to open wounds, it can help reduce the risk of infection. Moreover, it is effective in combating gum disease, accelerating recovery after dental surgery, and eliminating ulcers when used topically in the mouth.

Hyaluronic acid is also used to treat many medical conditions besides these. Among them, the treatment of osteoarthritis, a type of degenerative joint disease caused by wear and tear on the joints over time, is also widely used to treat dry eye, as it decongests the symptoms of acid reflux and retains moisture in some people.


Hyaluronic acid fillers, which are applied to help the skin look tight and young, are one of the most commonly used methods in medical aesthetics.

Aging is a normal part of life. Since your twenties, your skin begins to lose its elasticity and moisture. As we get older, the fat, muscle, bones and skin on our face begin to thin out. This loss of volume causes the face, fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and lips to look either slumped or more saggy. Injectable hyaluronic acid filling of fine lines and wrinkles, lip contour and the line shift of the peak in reducing the appearance of drooping folds, showing face, eye, cheek, jaw and temporal regions in bringing to volume and fullness, nasolabial region, and also in the treatment of acne scarring vertical lines above the lip between Nov and can be applied.

Thanks to the developments in modern medicine, interventions that previously required major surgical operations have now begun to give way to injectable options that can provide real results with almost no incision.


A holistic facial approach is very important when applying hyaluronic acid injections to the face. If the factors causing the area where the complaint is located are in another area, treatment should be started from that area. Filling only the area where the complaint is made causes the pit in that area to not disappear completely.

When this natural acid is applied even once, it attracts water and results in a plumping effect that reduces the appearance of aging for many months, without any worries that would normally accompany an anti-aging procedure.

Since hyaluronic acid is a natural part of your body, it is extremely rare to experience serious side effects.

Nevertheless, reactions such as bruising, redness or edema that may occur temporarily at the injection sites may occur. Hyaluronic acid injection does not affect your daily life, you can resume your normal life immediately after application. In most cases, the procedure can be performed with a quick and easy clinic visit. The processing time varies depending on the amount and region of filling, but on average it is in the range of 15-30 minutes.


Given that dermal fillers are not surgical and contain minimal risks, most people are good candidates for the procedure. Even if you are in your twenties, you can also consider dermal fillers as a preventive measure that will reduce the effects of aging in the few decades ahead of you.

People who should not apply dermal filler can be listed as follows:

Those who have an active infection,

Those with uncontrolled diabetes,

Those who have a blood clotting disorder,

Patients who are allergic to any component of hyaluronic acid.

In addition, pregnant or lactating women and patients with an existing cancer diagnosis should not have dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers differ in chemical structure, long life and varying degrees of softness. For example, when using softer fillers on the lips, harder fillers should be preferred to strengthen the cheekbones. Your doctor will determine the most appropriate type and volume of filler for you according to the area to be applied.
