As a whole, dermal fillers are applied and behave similarly when used for facial rejuvenation. Using a syringe, a cosmetic surgeon or other trained specialist will inject the chosen material into one or more areas on a patient’s face beneath unwanted lines, wrinkles, or hollows. Fillers are used to reduce wrinkles and augment or enhance features such as lips and cheekbones.
The filler remains in the place it was injected for months to years, depending on the individual and the material used, softening or even eliminating creases or adding volume to the low spot being treated. While most treatments are temporary, they are also some of the safest, most effective, and inexpensive cosmetic treatments for the effects of aging skin.
In the last few years, there has been a great deal of research devoted to creating longer-lasting effects for injectable fillers, and some dermal fillers now contain substances that aren’t readily absorbed by the human body in order to attain that goal. A qualified plastic surgeon should be able to advise you on the best solution to meet your own objectives.
