Injectable cosmetic fillers are most commonly used to enhance the size of body structures and to fill in undesirable facial creases and scar depressions. In practice, most patients use injectable fillers to gain fuller lips and eliminate the appearance of the visible facial lines that come with aging. In most cases, patients are able to resume normal activities immediately following treatment.
Injectable fillers are cosmetic medical products designed to mimic the properties of collagen. The most abundant protein in the human body, collagen provides strength and structure to connective tissue. Essentially, it holds the body tightly together. Fillers are injected into the subcutaneous (“under the skin”) tissue, which produces a “mass effect” that elevates the overlying skin. The greater the volume of solution injected, the greater the amount of change.
