Q: My friends say they get “filler” in their face, what does that exactly mean?
A: Fillers are injected directly into facial lines in the mid and lower fact to “fill in” wrinkles by replacing volume.
Most fillers are a gel that is made from hyaluronic acid; a substance that is produced naturally by our body.
Fillers are used in the lips to plump them up, in the grooves that run from the nose to the corner of the mouth (naso-labial folds), in cheeks and lines around the month.
Filler injections actually don’t hurt due to the addition of lidocaine, a numbing agent. The results are immediate: a more youthful appearance with no downtimes and the results can be expected to last 6 to 18 months.
Don’t be afraid to give fillers a try: the key is a conservative approach. The results can be stunning!
