Injectable facial fillers reduce facial wrinkles and increase tissue volume.
Fillers are a type of minimally invasive aesthetic medicine used to add volume, alter the contours of the face, and fill in wrinkles. Common areas to inject fillers are in the face, neck, and hands, resulting in a fuller, smoother and more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are among the most popular aesthetic procedures because they carry immediate results, very few risks and little recovery time.
They provide a more youthful appearance, giving skin more fullness. You will notice fewer wrinkles and creases where the filler has been injected. Facial fillers can also improve the appearance of scars, making them much less noticeable.
Retief Skin Center uses a number of widely known FDA-approved injectable dermal fillers. They are injected into facial tissue in order to smooth wrinkles or depressions. For example, many people use injectable dermal fillers in the lips to make them plumper and more voluminous or to fill in depressions around the cheeks and lips.
