Over time, almost everyone gets “bothered” by it. Lines and wrinkles appear on your face. This is a natural process that is enhanced by sunlight, for example, but also by the fact that your body begins to produce less and less collagen as you age. In addition, there is always a genetic component. Sometimes aging skin can make you look tired or sullen, and of course that’s a shame. Especially when you feel top notch but your face is showing excessive signs of aging.
That’s the time to consider fillers. In this blog, we will discuss everything about fillers and how fillers can give you a radiant and fresh appearance again; for example, through a tear trough treatment, smoker’s lines treatment or an entire liquid facelift. Fillers are the solution for a radiant appearance that matches how you feel!
What are fillers?
Fillers are the collective name for a number of cosmetic treatments in which a substance is injected into your skin to improve the appearance or shape of the face. Fillers are therefore known as injectables, which simply means injectable. There are different types of fillers and they are mainly used by specialized cosmetic doctors such as our specialists at Oran Aesthetics.
A filler is used to compensate for local volume loss in the face, thus reducing wrinkles. Consider
fill in smoking lines
less visible but also
a tear duct treatment
which restores radiance and freshness to a tired appearance. So a filler actually does exactly what the name suggests: fill something up.
In addition to fillers, botox is also regularly used. However, Botox is not a filler but a muscle relaxant that reduces wrinkles and thus makes them less visible. Botox is used for, among other things
reducing crow’s feet
. So if you suffer from multiple signs of skin aging, a combination of fillers and botox may be a good solution.
Fillers are also called injectables and that’s because they are inserted into the skin through an injection needle. The doctor then uses a very thin needle and you only feel a prick. This is because the filler is often combined with painkillers. So you only feel the needle and not the insertion of the filler. Sometimes your cosmetic specialist will choose to additionally numb your skin beforehand. Of course, your specialist will discuss this with you before treatment begins. The treatment usually takes between 15 and 20 minutes, and you often receive multiple injections to evenly fill the entire area.
Afterwards, your skin may be a bit sensitive but this will quickly go away and you will see results right away.
Types of fillers
There are a number of different types of fillers. The difference between fillers is in the type of active ingredient they contain. Each filler is inserted in much the same way – with a thin hypodermic needle.
The most commonly used filler is a hyaluronic acid filler but collagen-stimulating fillers are also used.
Filler with hyaluronic acid
Fillers can therefore contain different active ingredients, and one of these active ingredients is hyaluronic acid.
A hyaluronic acid filler is primarily used to restore volume to your face in areas where it has diminished. You can also easily blur wrinkles with a hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is a body’s own substance that can additionally retain moisture. This, of course, is a fine combination that, in addition to decreasing wrinkles, also ensures supple skin and hydrated skin.
There is also a very low chance of allergic reactions to it. The body eventually breaks down the filler itself.
Fillers remain visible for a long time
Fillers have the advantage that they give immediate results and remain visible for a long time. Depending on the area treated, a filler can last up to several years, so you’ll be free of telltale smoker’s lines or deep puffiness for a long time thanks to

Safety of fillers
Fillers have been used for a long time and several studies have been done on safety. Safety was confirmed with these studies. Oran Aesthetics uses only the best A-brand fillers available for filler treatments. In addition, we use fillers that have been used for a long time and thus have already been proven safe and effective. When, in extremely rare cases, complications occur, hyaluronic acid can be dissolved well with Hyason, a dissolving fluid. This comes in handy when it is necessary to correct some volume afterwards.
