Filling materials are divided into 2 main classes as permanent and temporary. Permanent filling materials are among themselves; obtained from our body (autogenous), obtained from other living beings (biological) and synthetically divided into three. Ideal filling material; should not be too expensive, should not be carcinogenic, should be compatible with the body, should not cause allergic reactions and should be long-lasting. The most commonly used products are temporary filling materials that last between 9-12 months. It is preferable that temporary fillers consisting of structural substances in the body or chemical substances which can be substituted for these structural substances have lower allergy potential and undesirable effects after application are limited to the duration of the filling. Depending on the region to be filled, hyaluronic acid material of different molecular weight is selected. Hyaluronic acid can be used for temporary filling of lips, crow's feet, inter-eyebrows, nasal margins. Side effects that may occur during filling with hyaluronic acid are pain, swelling, nodule and discoloration at the injection site. Rarely, granuloma and abscess formation can be seen.
