As with Cosmetic Botox, filler injections soften or remove facial wrinkles for several months. Instead of relaxing the muscles, aesthetic fillers are injected in the wrinkle to make it dissapear. Aesthetic fillers are used for wrinkles around the mouth, for lip and for other wrinkles of facial expression. They are also used for cheek augmentation and facial contouring.
Hyaluronic acid keeps your skin ferm and elastic. As we age, our skin loses its normal hyaluronic acid, wich allows wrinkles to appear. Injection of these products temporarily replace hyaluronic acid and provide volume to the skin. The effect lasts from 6 to 36 months or longer and needs to be repeated to maintain the aesthetic benefit. The aesthetic filler effect slowly dissappears over time and skin gradually returns to its normal state.
Side effects are rare, temporary and are generally limited to slight redness, itching, swelling or soarness. These generally disappear within days of the treatment.
