Fillers overview

As we age our skin looses its youthfulness. Technically this is called ‘Volume Loss’. Decreased skin elasticity along with volume loss causes wrinkles, deep laugh lines, hollow cheeks, hollow under eyes and down turned mouth. Fillers help to restore the fullness to the face, lips and hands. They are used to smooth wrinkles or pitted scars in the skin, usually on the face. There are many kinds of injectable fillers that have been popular over the years. Now a days Hyaluronic acid based fillers are used predominantly for facial rejuvenation.

Hyaluronic Acid and its derivatives are deposited below the skin using special syringes. They adsorb water and the small pellets of fillers increase in size to provide volume enhancement to the treatment area. Hyaluronic acid fillers are very safe but they don’t stay for life. They stay maximally till 12 months and then gradually they get absorbed and disappear.
