Facial dermal fillers, also known as wrinkle fillers, are a quick and easy way to get a more youthful look at a fraction f the price of a facelift. Most wrinkle fillers are used to fill deep lines and hollows in the facial and neck area. The results are obtained in less than 30 minutes and will last from 4 months to a year.
There are different types of facial fillers. One is an injectable wrinkle filler, which fills the lines and areas in a patient’s face that need smoothing out using hyaluronic acid. The other is a Botox-like injection, which relaxes the muscles underneath the skin. Both have specific uses for different types of scenarios and preferences of the individual patient. More rarely used are collagen injections, which begin to break down within a month.
