What Are Fillers?
A dermal filler is a solution that is injected into the skin to relax the appearance of wrinkles and lines. The filler solution is commonly composed of collagen or hyaluronic acid, which is already present in the skin. When injected, the filler smooths and expands the surface of the skin, making it look more youthful. The effect of most fillers is temporary and must be repeated to maintain the look. Fillers are also used to “plump” up thin lips and cheeks, making them look more full and attractive for a period of time.
Common Types of Fillers
Common wrinkle fillers that you may have heard of by name include Juvederm, HylaForm, Elevess and Restylane. Side effects (swelling, pain or redness) from fillers can be minimized and avoided by ensuring that you receive your treatment from a qualified dermatologist.
