What are injectable fillers?

Injectable filler is injected into the skin at different depths to help fill facial wrinkles, provide facial volume, and augment facial features while restoring a smoother appearance. 

Dermal fillers come in various forms, including Juvederm®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Sculptra®, and Bellafill®. The most common fillers consist of non-animal hyaluronic acid. Other fillers consist of a synthetic suspension in gel, whereas others are naturally occurring.

The best filler choice depends on your treatment goals and can vary from person to person. The location of where the filler is to be injected, how long you want it to last, and existing allergies also determine the best type of filler to be used for your individual needs and goals.

What are fillers good for?

Injectable fillers add soft volume beneath your skin and can be used to add fullness to:

  • Cheeks.
  • Lips.
  • Nasolabial folds.
  • Backs of your hands.
  • Indented scars.

Fillers can also correct acne scars on the cheek and restore facial fat loss in people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). After studying your facial anatomy and unique contours, your dermatologist personalizes your cosmetic treatment with fillers and Botox.

Are fillers the same as Botox?

Dermal fillers are available for cosmetic purposes and can minimize wrinkles, but not like Botox. 

Botox and fillers work differently, so they're best used in specific parts of the face. A filler is excellent for restoring facial volume under the eyes, while Botox is effective for smoothening dynamic wrinkles like glabellar lines and crow's feet.  

Injectable filler adds volume to skin and scars to smooth them, while Botox treats the dynamic wrinkles in your upper face. They can be used together to treat blemishes and wrinkles.

How long do fillers last?

Most fillers are temporary because the body eventually absorbs them. How long they last depends on factors like the type of filler and where it's injected. 

Most fillers' results last up to a year, while Botox can erase fine lines for 3-4 months. You can repeat the treatments to maintain results.
