Facial Fillers
Facial Fillers are Botox injections which use hyaluronic acid to plump the face in order to give it a more youthful look. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body in various locations including the eyes and joints where it functions as a lubricant. In a laboratory setting, hyaluronic acid can be procured from a patient’s own body, rooster combs, or bacteria. Several substances can be injected to regain a more youthful appearance using hyaluronic acid including HylaForm Restylane, and Juvederm. Juvederm is the longest-lasting, and has been FDA approved to last up to a year without need for supplementary injections.

During the procedure an initial local anesthetic injection is given to prevent discomfort, and then the filler is injected into the desired areas. Patients should be aware of the fact that most fillers are not permanent and need to be reintroduced as often as every three months depending on the material used. A doctor or dentist is best suited to counsel patients concerning their options regarding material, location, and expected results.
