Injectable fillers essentially “fill in” the volume lost in your face due to aging. Unlike Botox, which temporarily paralyzes muscles, dermal fillers are inserted under the skin to plump it up, lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
There are a few different types of fillers based on their active ingredients, which may include hyaluronic acid, collagen and minerals. They are generally used on facial features prone to wrinkles and a loss of volume as we age, such as the lips, crow’s feet area of the eyes, smile lines and cheeks.
