Hyaluronic Acid Injection Meditravelist
Hyaluronic Acid Injection for Face

Hyaluronic Acid Injection is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure used for facial rejuvenation to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Hyaluronic acid (HA) is found naturally throughout the body, but is in the highest concentration in the joints, eyes, and skin. HA, which forms a complex with collagen in the connective tissue under the skin, plays an important role in moisturizing the skin due to its water absorbing (hydrophilic) feature. With aging, facial fat, muscles, bone and skin begin to shrink and lose volume. This causes the face to appear sunken or sagging.


Injectable hyaluronic acid, a type of temporary dermal filler, corrects the sunken or sagging appearance of the face and helps increase the volume in the lips.

What are the Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a useful compound frequently used in different fields of medicine and skin care. Hyaluronic acid has a large amount of water retention capacity due to its hydrophilic properties. When applied to the skin, it increases moisture levels. In this way, the skin looks fuller and moister. When the skin’s moisture loss decreases, the skin remains healthier and brighter. It also strengthens the skin’s protective barrier against external factors.


As the skin ages, collagen production decreases and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles increases. Hyaluronic acid increases skin fullness and helps to have a more youthful appearance. It contributes to the preservation of skin integrity by ensuring faster healing of skin wounds.


When volume loss occurs in the lips, lip fullness can be increased with hyaluronic acid-based fillers. As one of the components of joint fluid, hyaluronic acid has the ability to support joint health. Intra-articular injections may be given to reduce joint pain and discomfort. Products containing hyaluronic acid provide a soothing and relaxing effect on sensitive skin, as well as helping to equalize skin tone and improve skin texture.


Hyaluronic acid is basically a substance that exists in the body, produces some of it on its own, and has the ability to provide moisture and elasticity to the skin. In cases where the body cannot produce the hyaluronic acid it produces under normal conditions for various reasons or the hyaluronic acid produced by the body is not sufficient, hyaluronic acid may need to be supplemented externally. Nowadays, hyaluronic acid is frequently used to delay the effects of aging, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent skin sagging.


There are two different types of hyaluronic acid: micromolecular and macromolecular. Micromolecular hyaluronic acid consists of low-weight molecules. Thanks to its micro size, it reaches down to the epidermis layer of the skin, penetrates under the skin and repairs any damage. It acts within the subcutaneous connective tissue under the epidermis and moisturizes the skin from within. It also encourages the natural production of hyaluronic acid under the skin.


Macromolecular hyaluronic acid has a high molecular weight. For this reason, it is generally not possible to penetrate under the skin. In addition to repairing the skin surface, it attracts attention with its benefits in moisturizing the skin surface and restoring its elasticity. In order to obtain optimum benefit from hyaluronic acid injection, the treatment should be planned individually for each patient and applied by specialist and experienced doctors.

In Which Areas Is Hyaluronic Acid Applied?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the body. Hyaluronic acid, which is in the highest concentrations in the joints, eyes and skin, moisturizes the skin by retaining water thanks to its hydrophilic feature. With aging, skin, bone, muscle and fat tissues become thinner, causing volume loss in the face. As a result of volume loss, fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and sagging or sunken lips appear on the face. With hyaluronic acid injection, the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and facial folds can be reduced. The face and lips can be reshaped, framed and volumized.


In addition to the nasolabial region, hyaluronic acid can also be applied to vertical lines above the lips and between the eyebrows. Although hyaluronic acid injections to the face are extremely common for aesthetic reasons, there are also different treatment areas such as hyaluronic acid injections for knees and other joints. Hyaluronic acid intra-articular applications can provide repair and hydration of joint cartilages, reducing or eliminating complaints such as articular pain and limited motion.


Thanks to the anti-aging effects provided by hyaluronic acid, forehead, eyebrow area, eye area, temples, cheeks, lips, lip area, décolleté area and hand surface can be listed among the areas where hyaluronic acid is applied.

Hyaluronic Acid Injection to the Face – Holistic Approach

A holistic approach should be followed to obtain optimum benefit from hyaluronic acid injection to the face. The factors that cause aesthetic concerns and the unwanted appearance in the problematic area that comes to the forefront may originate from a different area. Therefore, treatment should be started from the other area where the causative factors are located rather than the area that seems to be in the forefront. Because simply adding volume to the area where the complaint occurs does not completely eliminate the hollowness or depression in the area.


The key role during hyaluronic acid injection to the face belongs to the mid-cheek area. Volume losses that occur especially in the outer part of the cheek can trigger a decrease in the prominence of the cheekbone on the outer part of the cheek and sagging in the lower face area, and even the hollow under the eye can become more prominent. In such cases, treatment should start from the mid-cheek area.

Does Hyaluronic Acid Injection to the Face Take Effect Immediately?

When the hyaluronic acid injection to the face will take effect and how long the effects will last may vary from patient to patient. Factors such as the patient’s age, skin structure, structural features of the hyaluronic acid filler used, injection location and dose are decisive at this point.


In order to obtain optimum benefit from hyaluronic acid injection, the lines and structural features on the face and/or lips are evaluated and how much volume will need to be added is determined. As a result, the patient’s needs and areas that need to be improved are determined. While hyaluronic acid injection provides an average of 6 months of permanence in the lips, it can be achieved for 1 year or even longer in the nasolabial folds. Permanence of up to 24 months can be achieved in the cheek area. If the effect is desired to be maintained after this period, the hyaluronic acid injection can be repeated if the patient requests and the doctor approves.

Are There Side Effects of Hyaluronic Acid Injection to the Face? What Are They?

Hyaluronic acid injection to the face is completed in an average of 15 to 30 minutes. After hyaluronic acid injection to the face, which is an extremely practical and comfortable process, patients can continue their daily lives where they left off. Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, side effects of hyaluronic acid injection to the face are extremely rare. However, in rare cases, slight redness or swelling may be seen in the area where hyaluronic acid injection to the face is applied. Such side effects usually resolve spontaneously within 2 days.

When and to Which Patients Should Hyaluronic Acid Be Applied?

Hyaluronic acid, a polysaccharide naturally produced by the body, has a very high-water retention and transport capacity. It protects the moisture and elasticity of the skin and supports tissue healing. It contributes to the cell renewal and protection process by providing structural support to the tissues.


Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, it is suitable for use in all skin types. Although it is frequently used to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles that occur due to aging, hyaluronic acid can be preferred at younger ages to eliminate dryness in the skin and repair the skin barrier.


Hyaluronic acid can be used to balance sebum production and moisturize skin with acne problems. Hyaluronic acid can offer a functional solution to provide moisture balance in dry skin.


Hyaluronic acid injections can be applied to people who have decreased joint fluids and muscle and skeletal problems due to aging.


Hyaluronic acid has the feature of being a safe compound for a very wide range of users. However, since each individual’s skin type, general health status, skin sensitivity and needs are different from each other, hyaluronic acid application should be planned specifically for the person. Hyaluronic acid application can be applied to dry, oily, normal and combination skin types.


Hyaluronic acid injections may be beneficial for those with fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss due to aging. Hyaluronic acid can be used to increase the moisture level in the skin of people with dry skin types and to provide a more moist and plump skin. Hyaluronic acid injections can be used to regulate the moisture balance of the skin and prevent excessive oil production in acne-prone skin.


However, those who are sensitive to skin reactions, have a history of allergic reactions, have serious skin problems, have autoimmune diseases, and are pregnant or breastfeeding may not be suitable for hyaluronic acid injections.

Which Foods Contain Hyaluronic Acid?

Some foods may not naturally contain hyaluronic acid. However, it may be necessary to consume such foods to support hyaluronic acid production and increase its level in the body.


A large portion of foods, vegetables and fruits containing zinc, magnesium and vitamin C contain hyaluronic acid. Vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, asparagus, sweet potatoes, cabbage, lettuce and peas, red fruits such as raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and cherries, cold water fish such as salmon and sardines, bone broth, almonds, soybeans and soy products can be counted among the foods containing hyaluronic acid.

What are the Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid for the Skin?

Hyaluronic acid can be used in skin care products for cosmetic purposes to eliminate signs of aging. Hyaluronic acid, which has the capacity to hold water up to 1000 times its own molecular weight, ensures that areas such as the skin, muscles, joints and eyes remain moist. In addition, hyaluronic acid has anti-aging and skin plumping effects. It has the ability to provide moisturizing skin care by protecting skin health.


Hyaluronic acid in the micromolecular structure easily penetrates the layers of the skin. It supports the skin renewal process with its collagen-boosting effect. Hyaluronic acid, which is a suitable ingredient for every skin type, has almost no side effects. Accordingly, the use of hyaluronic acid is not risky like other acids.


Hyaluronic acid has the effect of eliminating skin dryness and roughness. Hyaluronic acid moisturizes the skin and strengthens the skin barrier. Hyaluronic acid, which can be used in the treatment of redness and eczema, also contributes to the wound healing process. It reduces the risk of infection, moisturizes the area around the wound and supports the healing process.


Thanks to its ability to retain water, it prevents the skin from losing water due to various adverse conditions during the day. In addition to helping meet the skin’s need for moisture, it also draws attention with its effect of delaying the signs of aging. Thanks to hyaluronic acid, which is frequently used in filler injections, it is possible to eliminate wrinkles on the skin.


Hyaluronic acid, which provides flexibility and lubrication to joints, is applied by injection as part of the treatment of osteoarthritis.

Which Joints Can Hyaluronic Acid Be Applied To?

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most important components of the joint fluid produced by the synovial cells lining the inner surface of the joint capsule, and it is also the main component of joint cartilage. Hyaluronic acid reduces the fluidity of the joint fluid while increasing its lubricity. In this way, friction and wear in the joint cartilage are reduced.


In addition, hyaluronic acid acts as a shock absorber and lubricant in the joints. Thanks to this feature, hyaluronic acid ensures that the cartilage coating on both surfaces slides easily over each other without causing wear during joint movement, thus ensuring smooth movement of the joint. Since the production of intra-articular hyaluronic acid decreases in people experiencing joint calcification (characterized by degeneration and calcium accumulation on cartilage surfaces due to aging), an artificial hyaluronic acid needle is used to inject the joint for external supplementation. Hyaluronic acid injected into the joint lubricates the joint and temporarily stops friction and wear. Thus, the patient’s complaints of pain and limited movement are reduced or almost completely eliminated for a while.


Hyaluronic acid injection is a procedure most commonly applied to the knee joint. In addition, hyaluronic acid can be applied to large joints such as the hip, shoulder, ankle, wrist and elbow, as well as small joints in the hand and foot.

How Long Does the Healing Effect Last in Joints Where Hyaluronic Acid Injection Is Applied? Who Can Be a Candidate?

The clinical healing period provided in joints with hyaluronic acid injection can vary between 6-12 months.


Hyaluronic acid injection may be considered for those with mild to moderate joint calcification problems, those whose complaints continue despite the use of medication or other treatment methods, those who use a large number of medications or are at risk of stomach bleeding, and those with kidney disease or other additional diseases.

This was the best medical experience I have had in a very long time. Yasemin was my hands-on coordinator that guided me through my entire experience and ongoing communication with meditravelist. She was also available for any questions or concerns I had before I traveled to Turkey. She even greeted me once I arrived (11/25/22) to my own nice apartment (which they provided for me) and continued to guide me through the rest of the time I was there. She sent me my personalized handbook of who my doctor was and my doctor’s detailed medical background and experience in the field of cosmetic surgery which was extensive. I received a rhinoplasty and 360 liposuction done by Op. Dr. Feryal Yildiz Deger. I am completely happy about my surgery results. She gave me the surgery results that are exactly what I asked of and expected. The liposuction led to me having more of an hourglass figure. The entire hospital staff were kind, professional and very patient. I traveled to Turkey alone from the U.S so I was very grateful for this. I was also grateful that the hospital itself was very clean and modern. I received medical attention that most ppl in the U.S would think pertained to millionaire affordability. The hospital staff catered to my every need and came to me promptly after pressing my hospital room call button. I would definitely recommend meditravelist to those who are looking into getting cosmetic surgery.

Sincerely thanks for a great service, friendly and professional support through all phases during our time in Istanbul. Yasemin, you are the best. I will add later with more info and pictures. As promised. More pictures from our amazing adventure with Yasemin and her team. Here you se my wife the day of surgery, 5 days later and 8 days later at her last check up at the surgeon Dr. Mehmet. Then it was my turn. Extensive dental treatment. Good to mention is that I suffer from extreme dental fear. But Best dental İstanbul took it out of me. 2,5 hours later in a very fancy environment I woke up with 9 new implants. Well done.
