Fillers, also known as dermal fillers or soft tissue fillers, are injectable substances that are used to improve the appearance of facial features. They are made up of various materials such as hyaluronic acid, collagen, calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid.

The main benefit of fillers is their ability to restore lost volume and enhance facial contours, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Other benefits include:
Before a filler treatment, a consultation with a qualified aesthetic practitioner is necessary to determine your goals and create a personalized treatment plan. During the procedure, the skin is cleansed and numbing cream may be applied to minimize discomfort. The filler is then injected into the targeted areas using a small needle or cannula, and the results can be seen immediately.
After the treatment, it is normal to experience mild swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site. These effects usually subside within a few days. Results typically last for 6-18 months, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors such as metabolism and lifestyle habits.
Fillers are an effective and popular way to enhance one's appearance without undergoing surgery. They can provide natural-looking results with minimal downtime, making them an attractive option for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance.
