You’ve undoubtedly heard the term “facial filler” before. However, you may not know exactly what it’s referring to or could have questions. Put simply, a facial filler is made of a substance such as collagen or hyaluronic acid that helps smooth or eliminate things like deep scars or wrinkles. Facial fillers can also help enhance lips. As we age, our soft-tissue volume lessens, which means that we become more prone to loose skin, leading to things like double chins or droopy eyelids.
Facial fillers, which are small subdermal injections to the face, are intended to help your face look more youthful, whether that’s easing deep creases around the nasolabial folds or plumping up thin lips. Facial fillers last anywhere from several months to a full year, depending on the kind of injection and the amount of the facial filler user. Typically, follow-up treatments are recommended.
It’s important to consult with a qualified dermatologist when you’re considering a facial filler, as there are different types available, depending on your specific needs. Dr. Adriana Lombardi has over seven years of dermatological experience. During a consultation, she will help you determine what facial line fillers are best for your particular need.
