What is an Injectable Filler?
Injectable filler is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin at different depths to help fill in facial wrinkles, provide facial volume, and augment facial features: restoring a smoother appearance. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body. Most dermal fillers today consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring polysaccharide that is present in skin and cartilage.
Some people may need more than one injection to achieve the wrinkle-smoothing effect. The effect lasts for about six months or longer. Successful results depend on health of the skin, skill of the health care provider, and type of filler used. Regardless of material filler duration is highly dependent on amount of activity in the region where it is injected.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Injectable Fillers?
Injectable fillers can be suitable for a number of different cosmetic concerns. They can do more than simply smooth out wrinkles because they can do more than paralyze the muscles as Botox would. With injectable fillers, you can smooth out the lines around your nose and mouth, enhance and restore volume into sunken cheeks, diminish vertical lines on the lips, plump the lips, smooth out a chin crease and improve overall symmetry of the face.
