If you are looking for a more youthful appearance to the mid- and lower face, there are several choices for FDA-approved soft tissue fillers that can be administered through injection. Injectable fillers plump up the skin, filling deep facial wrinkles, and creases. Fillers can also be used to give lips a fuller, more sensuous appearance.
Fillers can be based on collagen, fat or chemicals that occur naturally in the body. For these reasons, there is no risk of long-term irritation or rejection. Fillers are injected directly into the tissue. Distribution is important in the treatment and treatments require several injections.
Results with fillers are seen immediately and will last 3-6 months.
