FILLERS

Overview

Dermal fillers are useful for increasing volume in areas of the face that have become thin with age such as in the temples, cheeks, chin and lips. It is also useful for treating and disguising wrinkles. Fillers can either be permanent or temporary.

Over the years there have been several manufactured forms of permanent filler but their use is not recommended due to potential complications. Fat on the other hand is a natural permanent filler that has a very good safety profile. Fat grafting can be used to add volume, shape and rejuvenate however multiple procedures may be required as usually only 50% of the fat that is injected survives.

There are many types of temporary fillers. One of the more popular fillers is made of hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring protein within human tissue and therefore has an excellent safety profile. Temporary fillers generally last 3-18 months dependent on the thickness of the filler. Thin fillers are great for treating fine lines, but do not last a long time. Thicker fillers are useful for deeper grooves and adding volume. They also last longer due to their thicker consistency.
