They’re the popular choice for getting plump, youthful and smooth skin.
What are face fillers?
Face fillers, otherwise known as dermal fillers, are small injections of gel, typically made up of hylauronic acid, that fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. You can have dermal fillers in different parts of your face: around the eye, cheeks, mouth and jawline, as well as lip fillers administered directly into the lip tissue.
How do they work?
Fillers basically restore lost volume to your face and plump areas, so that deep-set lines are smoothed. Why is this needed? As we get older our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin, both of which contribute to the youthful look.
How long do face fillers last?
It depends how your body reacts and which hyaluronic acid is used, but most face fillers will last between six and 18 months.
