Fillers are a type of non-surgical cosmetic procedure. Dermal fillers reduce the appearance of wrinkles and smooth lines and restore facial volume. The doctor injects these substances just under the skin.

People choose dermal fillers to improve their facial features or achieve a youthful appearance. This elective treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes with minimal recovery time. Results are immediate and last for months to years, depending on the type and location of the filler.

There are many different types of dermal fillers. Talk to your doctor about the options available. As with any cosmetic procedure, the risks of infection, bleeding, and bruising are present. Health insurance companies don’t cover elective cosmetic procedures such as filler injections.

Types of Facial Fillers

Facial Fillers include:

Hyaluronic acid (Restylane, Juvedern, others)

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in your skin naturally. It is a commonly used filler for wrinkles. The effect usually lasts for 6-12 months.

Calcium hydrogenation(Diereses) –

This filler contours the jawline and restores cheek volume. It targets deeper lines and wrinkles on the skin. The effect lasts up to one year for contour correction and three years for wrinkle filling.

Fat grafting –

This method uses liposuction to remove fat from the lower abdomen or other areas. Then it is injected through a small incision on the cheek, temple, lip, or forehead. The effect is permanent. However, multiple sessions are usually required to achieve the desired results, as the body reabsorbs some of the fat.

Permanent Soft Tissue Filler (Bella fill) –

This filler smooths out deep wrinkles around the mouth. Permanent soft tissue fillers are generally not recommended as an initial facial filler treatment.

Poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptural) –

This product restores facial volume lost due to aging or illness. Usually, 2-3 sessions are required. The results last for 2 years.
