Fillers

Fillers: Overview

Also called soft-tissue fillers, dermal fillers, soft-tissue augmentation

As we age, our skin loses its youthful fullness. Fillers help to restore lost fullness to the face, lips, and hands. 

Fillers are popular for several reasons. Patients like that they can return to everyday activities immediately after getting most fillers. They like the immediate results that many types of fillers deliver. Patients also like that they can get this treatment during an office visit. Some fillers require a few office visits.

Uses: With a number of fillers now available, dermatologists can diminish signs of aging that appear on the face, lips, and hands. Fillers can effectively:

  • Restore fullness to cheeks, hollow areas under the eyes, and deep creases.
  • Diminish scars.
  • Erase fine lines.
  • Plump lips. 
  • Lift the brow or a downturned mouth.
  • Rejuvenate hands.

 

Insurance coverage: Insurance does not cover treatment that reduces signs of aging.
