NATURALNESS

The naturalness is more beautifal than the beauty.
İt is the stuation of some beauty mixed and harmonised with some other components.

For example it is actually the charm of this combination obtained through these balances when we are affected
by something  very elegant when we look at someone who is not so much beautiful & handsome.

The balance of this mixture covers the beauty and makes it genious and real.
Even if  we increase the balance of the mixture at the favor of the beauty ,
the balance of the expression loses its characteristic and turns to be someone else.

Because of tihs reason its meanless that we consantrate our attantion only on Gold Ratio of beautyness

Whatever aesthetical treatments we do realise ( botox,fillers,thread lifting etc.) its essential to be taken in consideration
the anatomical entirety (theeth,bones,fats,retaining ligaments,texture of the skin,shape of the had and neck, body posture etc.)
This anatomical entirety is our first important referance for the Gold Ratio.
But at my opinion İt’s not enough to get the natural results.

The Gold Ratio is of course the divine secret  of the beauty and the world art history is full of the architectual masterpieces.
However the human face and its expression is not a constant static sculpture or a building  which almost newer gets old ,
hat we can solve agining problems  with only Gold Ratio.

So there must be at every age a different Gold Ratio
and we need the second important reference .

regarding all the anatomical entirety of the Gold Ratio which we mentioned above , we would also be obliged to add the ingredients of humanbeing ( expression,temperament,mimics,posture,characters,social-cultural position,the social rolles etc.)
and the most essential  subject is the moderate and reasonable aging condition .

Therefore we would be able to mention the naturalness of the aesthetical treatments which we can add to the beautyfication strategy.

Finally I would like to call this concept as Gold Naturalness .

Because our aim of reestablishing the beauty of an humanbeing is not to create a person with completely delated rememberance and characteristic

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

My main principle that I focus at all madical aesthetic treatments ;

to obtain the natural beauty / handsomeness without exageration.

I would only be able to mention the success of the prosedures when we reach a beauty / handsomeness
acording to the character,posture,temperament,social position and age .

It is meanless to try to beautify any part of the face or body being independent from those subjects mentioned above .

The first condition of the success is to be able to know the patient’s expectations from various sides.
İt’s also very important to say no when necessary.

According to this philosophy we can decide which aesthetical treatment should be made regarding the prosedure and technics
so we can start our voyage of natural beauty / handsomeness .

As all the treatments deal with 3D face expression , the individual artistic skills of the doctor, gives a certain advantage .
Joining the artistic skill with medical aesthetic discipline as a sculpture we can realise particular aproaches for each patient.
so that we can obtain natural results.
İf we deal with template applies it wont be any surprise to come across with the similar exprassions of the cheeks,lips,eyes,etc.
I would like to express my fully and sincere appreciation to my colleques whose aim is to optain natural beauty results and being succesfull at their treatments.

What are facial fillers

Facial fillers are synthetic or naturally occurring substances injected into the lines, folds, and tissues of the face to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and restore the facial fullness that decreases with age.

These injectables are also called dermal fillers, injectable implants, wrinkle fillers, and soft-tissue fillers. They’re used to erase smile lines, plump up cheeks and lips, and correct acne scars.

The vast majority of fillers are absorbable. Thus, they offer temporary results that last from months to a couple of years, depending on the product and the person.

Some fillers are marketed as permanent and can last up to several years.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons,2.7million facial filler procedures were performed in 2017 alone.

Types of Facial Fillers

The market is abuzz with facial fillers.

While many facial fillers provide immediate results, says the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), some of them will require several treatments over the course of weeks or months for optimal benefits, followed by occasional touch-ups.

Commonly used fillers include:

Hyaluronic acid (HA)

This gel-like substance is found naturally in the body. It’s used to “plump up” skin, adding volume to places like the cheeks and smoothing out wrinkles, especially around the eyes, lips, and forehead.

Because the body reabsorbs the hyaluronic acid gradually over time, results generally only last 6 to 12 months, reports the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS). There have been some advances in the development of these dermal fillers, and these will typically last 12 months or longer.

Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

This filler uses calcium (in the form of microscopic particles) and adds it to a gel that is then injected. The gel is of a thicker consistency than HA, which makes it better suited for deep wrinkles, says the ABCS.

The results of CaHA tend to last about a year.

Poly-L-lactic acid

This biodegradable acid helps stimulate the skin’s own collagen production, instead of “filling” wrinkles. This gives firmness to the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

This filler is used to treat deep wrinkles and increase the volume where fat has been lost. It works gradually, but can provide results for at least two years, making it a semipermanent filler.

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)

This filler consists of tiny balls (called microspheres) and collagen that plump up skin. It is known to have some issues, according to a journal article in Plastic and Aesthetic Research.

Although this type of filler is considered permanent, with results lasting five years, it’s usually not the first choice of doctors.

According to research published in Aesthetics, long-acting dermal fillers have higher rates of complications, such as infection and nodules.

Autologous fat injections (fat grafting)

This technique takes fat from parts of your body, such as the buttocks, and injects it into facial areas for filling.

This fat is typically removed from your body using liposuction, a procedure in which fat is vacuumed out of the body via a hollow tube inserted through incisions in the skin.

This procedure requires sedation, and you may need a week or two to recover. In most cases, fat grafting provides long-lasting results.

Side effects of facia fillers

Common side effects

According to the AAD, the following side effects — which tend to occur around the injection site — can be immediate, but usually clear within 7 to 14 days:

  • redness
  • swelling
  • pain
  • bruising
  • itching
  • rash

Rare side effects

While less common, you should be aware of the following side effects:

  • infection
  • leakage of the filler through the injection site
  • nodules around the injection site, which may need to be surgically removed
  • granulomas, a type of inflammatory reaction to the filler
  • movement of the filler from one area to another
  • injury to blood vessels
  • blindness, which occurs when the filler gets injected into an artery, blocking blood flow to the eyes
  • tissue death, again due to blocked blood flow

Safety Precautions

While facial fillers are generally safe, taking these steps can help ensure your safety:

  • Use a licensed, well-trained, and experienced medical professional (an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon) to inject the filler.
  • Have the procedure done in a medical setting, not in someone’s home or at a mall kiosk.
  • Ask the provider about their experience with the particular type of filler you have chosen. The more experience they have with the product, the better.
  • Don’t purchase fillers online. Only get them from a medical provider.
  • Fillers should be in unopened and properly labeled syringes. Inspect the syringe to make sure.
  • Make sure that the filler being used is FDA-approved for that purpose.
  • Be aware of the risks and potential side effects.
  • Read the filler ingredients and don’t have it injected if you know you have an allergy to any of the filler’s components (e.g., collagen).
  • Be sure to tell your doctor about all medications and supplements you take. Some may interact with the ingredients in the fillers or can affect your blood’s ability to clot.

Risk factors to be aware of

Don’t use fillers if:

  • your skin is inflamed for any reason (for example, if you have a rash, active acne, hives, etc.)
  • you’re allergic to any of the filler ingredients (read the label)
  • you have a bleeding disorder
  • you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or under the age of 18 (safety hasn’t been studied in younger age groups)
  • Your skin is susceptible to scarring (e.g., you have a keloid or an overgrowth of scar tissue

Why does  volume loss matter?

CHEEK

Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. The fillers is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.

Lines & Wrinkles

specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.

Are there any reasons I shouldn’t receive hyaluronic acid gel fillers ?
Do not receive injectable gel fillers if you have a history of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), or if you are allergic to lidocaine or the proteins (Gram-positive bacterial proteins) used to make hyaluronic acid (HA) in any injectable gel fillers.
