Filling Operations (Peptit Injections)
Filling operations are performed using dermal filling substances. These substances have an aesthetic gel based content which are then injected during operation. They have been specially designed to reduce the visibility of wrinkles, to shape the face and to create volume. Certain dermal filling substances are also used to moisten and enliven the skin.
Dermal filling substances are found among across almost all species and derive from a sugar molecule. Its’ normal duty is to transfer water so that moving parts of the body are lubricated and can absorb incoming shock. It is also considered vital for the transport of nutrients and for balancing the presence of water throughout the skin. Dermal filling substances enliven and provide volume to the skin using this naturally occurring substance. The substance used at Özel Zen Poliklinik is considered as skin tissue friendly and is similar to those that are found naturally throughout the body.
Which parts of the body is it used on?
Dermal filling substances are used to get rid of lines and wrinkles that form on the face, to create well-rounded lips; as well as, for shaping the nose and the jawline. The most widely treated areas are as follows:
Lines that extend from the nose to the sides of the mouth (Nasolabial Folds)
Glabella lines between eyebrows
Breast, butt and leg areas
Filling substances are injected by single-use needles with thin tips onto areas to be treated. Topical anesthetic cream is applied to numb the area to create a certain sense of comfort for the patient. The duration of the operation is dependent on the area to be performed on; though, on average lasts between 15 - 30 minutes.
How Long Does the Effect Last?
One of the biggest advantages of filling operations is the longevity of the effects; though they are not permanent. Dermal filling substances disintegrate naturally within the body due to biological make-up of the body’s system. In order to have an optimal and long-lasting result, it is important to have a follow-up appointment 6 - 12 months after the initial visit. Our team at Özel Zen Poliklinik will guide you in the right direction in setting up a follow-up appointment.
