Cosmetic Fillers

What do men and women want now? They want a more youthful look. Women and men are seeking treatments to minimize crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and laugh lines. A popular treatment is cosmetic fillers into the face.

Injectable cosmetic fillers are soft tissue fillers. This is approved as medical devices by the Food and Drug Administration. These fillers are injected into the skin helping fill in facial wrinkles, and restore a smoother appearance. Most cosmetic fillers are temporary due to being absorbed by the body.

Some patients need more than one injection to achieve the smooth effect. This effect lasts for six months or longer. Results depend on: health of skin, type of cosmetic filler being used, and skill of the doctor.

The FDA has approved absorbing, injectable cosmetic fillers for correcting defects, such as moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. Some absorbable fillers are for correcting signs of facial fat loss in people.

Cosmetic fillers are made of various materials. Some of these cosmetic fillers contain lidocaine, which will numb the skin at the site of injection.

Collagen injections are made of purified cow or human collagen. Collagen is a protein that is a component of skin and other tissues. Another cosmetic filler is Hyaluronic acid gel, a protective lubricating gel, produced by the body, this binds with water to plump the skin. Calcium hydroxylapatite is a material that dissolves in the body, and can be implanted in a gel like form.
