Turkey Medicals member Medical Park Fatih Istanbul Hospital Hospital Head of Clinic Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Assoc. Dr. told what is curious about beauty trends in Turkey and treatments.

Cheeks with congenital volume loss or losing volume with age can cause the face to look older and tired than it is. With Highlight filler (also known as cheek filler), your cheeks can be plumped, you can get a younger and more vibrant appearance.

Highlight filler is a procedure that involves injections of hyaluronic acid or autologous fat cells. In order to achieve a natural appearance, the correct application of the cheek design and injection technique is very important for the result. It should be applied to the stretching points to achieve natural tension and light while distributing the lost volume to the central part of the face. Thanks to this, natural light and shadow are created, as well as the taut appearance of the cheekbones. For this purpose, filling should be applied to 8 points or 5 points on the cheeks for lifting purposes. In this way, artificial swelling of the cheeks can be prevented.

Rejuvenate in 15 minutes with Highlight filler!

With Highlight filling, deep wrinkles are removed and the desired volume of the cheekbones is obtained. It creates natural light between the cheeks and cheekbones. Thanks to this, stretching, volume and contouring can be done at the same time.

The injection process takes an average of 15 minutes, and depending on the material used, its effect can last from 8 to 15 months. According to the person’s request, the injection process can be repeated as the effect of the procedure decreases. There is no pain during the procedure due to the use of local anesthesia and the use of injection materials with very fine tips. There are no scars and there is no need for any healing process. The effect of cheek filling begins to be seen immediately, and the final shape is formed within two weeks.

Highlight filler is suitable for anyone who does not have fullness in the cheeks and has good overall health. There may be very slight bruises after the injection, which can be easily closed depending on the sensitivity of the skin.
