What are Facial Fillers?

Facial fillers are used to maintain volume in the face, and thus restore (or prolong) a youthful, rested, healthy appearance. Sometimes referred to as ‘collagen replacement’ or ‘soft tissue enhancement,’ facial filler injections take only minutes to perform and the cosmetic results are immediate.  Your injection specialist injects the selected facial filler at sites where natural fat has depleted, the most common being the folds next to the nose (nasolabial folds), the lines running from the mouth toward the chin (marionette lines), sunken cheeks and thinning lips.  The new generation of facial fillers is very advanced and the creation specific products (Juvederm® and Voluma®) for specific areas of the face which last much longer than in the past. However, most facial fillers are still temporary, and depending on the staying power of the product (as well as the reaction of the patient) touch-ups will eventually be required.
