With a proper filler treatment from Betan Clinics, you can prevent signs of skin ageing.
Wrinkles and loss of volume are caused by the ageing process of the skin. One of the most popular
treatments to treat wrinkles and loss of volume is a filler treatment, in which a filler agent is used. The agents used are perfectly safe.

As the facial volume decreases over the years, the skin sinks. This causes the prominent nose-lip folds, mouth folds and drooping jawlines. Other frequent changes are that the cheekbones have less volume. The result is a more square shape of the head instead of the youthful beauty triangle that provides a radiant, fit look. All these discomforts of ageing can be treated naturally to make you look as young as you feel.
At Betan Clinics, we use advanced, non-permanent (temporary) fillers of reliable brands. The fillers contain water and a hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a product that occurs naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid occurs in the space between cells in the body and has a natural ability to bind water between the cells. As a result, hyaluronic acid protects the cells and acts as a cushion. Hyaluronic acid keeps the skin supple and resilient. The moisturising effect keeps the skin smooth and firm. The production of hyaluronic acid decreases with age. This causes a decrease in the elasticity and moisturising capacity of the skin resulting in the development of wrinkles and dry skin.
The fillers used by Betan Clinics are known for their exceptionally beautiful, subtle and even results. They are absorbed very well into the skin with an even volume distribution. These fillers also show a natural increase in facial volume and rehydration of the skin. The transition between treated and untreated areas is very gradual. The advantage of the fillers used by Betan Clinics is that it can be combined with the anaesthetic lidocaine. This makes the treatment a lot more comfortable for you. Treatment with these fillers also produces long-term results but is always temporary. The effect remains visible for up to 12-18 months, depending on the type of treatment, skin condition, lifestyle and age.</>

All fillers used are completely pure products, do not contain any animal components, are 100% biodegradable and rarely give rise to allergic reactions in the skin. The composition is such that if you touch the treated skin, you will not feel the filler. The hyaluronic acid in the filler is concentrated in very diluted form and does not affect your health.
Difference between fillers and botulinum toxin
Don’t confuse fillers with botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin works very different from fillers. Botulinum toxin causes muscles to relax temporarily, preventing wrinkles and other lines from forming. Fillers fill a wrinkle, line or crease. Botulinum toxin is used for so-called dynamic wrinkles formed by different facial expressions and fillers are used for so-called static wrinkles caused by the ageing process. The similarity between fillers and botulinum toxin is that they make wrinkles fade and in this way, give a vital, fresh appearance. The results of both injectables are temporary.
At Betan Clinics, a free, no-obligation consult is scheduled before you consider undergoing filler treatment. During this consult, your request for help will be discussed with the plastic surgeon, and it will be checked if you qualify for a filler treatment. You will have plenty of time to discuss your wishes. The plastic surgeon will give you free and honest advice on which treatment will give the best result. Together with you, a personal treatment plan will be drawn up. The plastic surgeon will explain what outcome he or she expects to achieve. Keep in mind that the plastic surgeon cannot guarantee a result, because not everyone reacts the same to a filler treatment. During the interview, the implementation of the treatment will also be discussed.
If you schedule an appointment for a consult, you will receive a digital medical questionnaire from us. This questionnaire contains questions about your general health and other critical medical matters that the plastic surgeon should be aware of. Because you have already filled in the questionnaire at home, there will be more time during the consultation to discuss your wishes and questions.
Bij Betan Clinics wordt eerst een vrijblijvend consult ingepland voordat u overweegt om een filler behandeling te ondergaan. Tijdens dit consult wordt uw hulpvraag met de plastisch chirurg besproken en wordt gecontroleerd of u in aanmerking komt voor een filler behandeling. U heeft alle tijd om uw wensen te bespreken. Vrijblijvend en eerlijk adviseert de plastisch chirurg welke behandeling het meest optimale resultaat geeft. Samen met u wordt een persoonlijk behandelplan opgesteld. De plastisch chirurg legt uit welk resultaat hij verwacht te bereiken. Houd er rekening mee dat de plastisch chirurg geen garantie kan geven op een resultaat, omdat niet iedereen hetzelfde reageert op een filler behandeling. Tijdens het gesprek zal ook de uitvoering van de behandeling aan bod komen.
Als u een afspraak voor een consult inplant ontvangt u digitaal een medische vragenlijst van ons. Deze vragenlijst bevat vragen over uw algehele gezondheid en andere belangrijke, medische zaken waar de plastisch chirurg van op de hoogte moet zijn. Doordat u de vragenlijst reeds thuis heeft ingevuld blijft er tijdens het consult meer tijd over om uw wensen en vragen te bespreken.
Fillers can be used to treat different areas of the face, neck, décolletage and back of the hand. Fillers are mainly used to fill in lips, reduce vertical lines on the upper lip (smoker’s lines), reduce lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin (puppet lines), give volume to sunken cheeks, soften the nasolabial fold and give more volume to the jawline.
If you agree to a filler treatment, the plastic surgeon will ask you to sign a treatment agreement so that you and the plastic surgeon are well informed about the treatment and expectations. The plastic surgeon will also take some pictures so that the result after the treatment can be evaluated together with you. The photos are securely stored in your own medical file. Only if you give your own explicit, written permission, photographs can be used for other purposes, such as a scientific presentation.
Before the treatment takes place, women should remove any make-up, and the skin of the area to be treated should be thoroughly cleaned. The plastic surgeon injects the filler into the area to be treated with a very thin needle. Depending on the chosen treatment, the plastic surgeon will ask in between for your lips to spout, frown or laugh. This allows the plastic surgeon to assess the wrinkles and volume. The filler is injected in a few steps. The plastic surgeon massages the skin around the injection to distribute the filler evenly.
As soon as the filler is injected, the volume is immediately restored. The skin becomes visibly more elastic, and the facial contours improve on the spot. The moisturising effect of the filler makes the skin look firm and radiant again. The treatment takes an average of 15 to 30 minutes, depending on which parts are treated. The punctures can be somewhat sensitive, for which we use an extra anaesthetic to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. Depending on the depth of the wrinkles and folds, the plastic surgeon injects the filler superficially or deep.
The skin becomes visibly more elastic and the facial contours improve on the spot.
1 to 2 hours after the treatment, the anaesthesia will have worn off. After the treatment, the skin may look red and swollen. This is a normal reaction that is usually mild to moderate and usually disappears the same day. It is possible that there is a bruise, which will disappear after a few days. You can camouflage a bruise very well.
The effect of a filler is immediately visible. The wrinkles may already have disappeared partially or even completely. After 1 to 2 weeks, the result can be optimally assessed because any small swellings will have completely disappeared by then.
Recommendations for the aftercare of a filler treatment
After the filler treatment, you can cool the treated skin at home to alleviate any pain or sensitivity. Avoid pressure on the face for the first few days and avoid contact with the injected skin. Avoid sun radiation on the treated skin for one week and use a sunscreen daily. We advise you not to go to a sauna or solarium for one week. It is also advisable not to exfoliate, peel or microdermabrasion the treated skin during the first two weeks after the filler treatment.
Immediately after the treatment, the result of a filler is visible. The skin may be a bit red and swollen on the spot. This pulls away within a few days or is even gone the same day. The final result is easy to assess after 1 to 2 weeks. The result will last for an average of 12 to 18 months. This can differ from person to person because everyone reacts differently to a natural, non-permanent filler. The effect will gradually diminish over time.
The plastic surgeon has discussed the expected results with you beforehand. He will paint the best possible picture of what you can expect from the treatment.
After a filler treatment, some local redness and swelling of the skin may occur. This is a normal reaction of the skin and is only temporary. The redness and swelling will disappear within a few days. There is a small chance of a bruise that will disappear within one week. This has no adverse effect on the final result.
At Betan Clinics, only non-permanent fillers (temporary fillers) are used. Permanent fillers are nowadays forbidden in the Netherlands. They consist of non-natural components and therefore cannot be broken down by the body. This can lead to unpleasant complications, such as infections, the formation of hard lumps or sensitive capsule formation. The non-permanent fillers used at Betan Clinics are 100% natural and completely biodegradable by the body. These fillers have been used millions of times worldwide and usually show no complications.

The cost of a filler treatment depends on the region or several regions being treated. One region is smaller than the other, and one wrinkle is deeper than the other. The price is calculated based on the amount of filler that needs to be used to achieve the desired result. Before treatment takes place, the plastic surgeon will always discuss with you what a treatment will cost you, so that you know exactly where you stand. At Betan Clinics, there are no unexpected costs that have not been discussed with you beforehand. For an overview of the rates for filler treatments, go to our rates page.
