Soft-tissue fillers made from absorbable (temporary) material are FDA-approved for the correction of moderate
to severe facial wrinkles and skin folds, such as nasolabial folds. Nasolabial folds are the wrinkles on the sides
of your mouth that extend towards the nose. They are commonly referred to as "smile lines" or "marionette lines.”
The soft tissue filler made from non-absorbable (permanent) material is approved only for the correction of nasolabial folds.
The FDA has approved two absorbable soft tissue fillers for lip augmentation, and one filler for cheek augmentation,
in patients over the age of 21.
Patients may need more than one injection to get the desired smoothing/filling effect. Successful results will
depend on the health of the skin, as well as the amount and type of filler used. The filler’s long-term efficacy
depends on the filler material used and the area where it is injected. Unlike botalinum injections, the results of
filler injections are immediate. We use different types of filler injections such as Radiesse, Belotero, Juviderm
and Voluma. Based on each patient’s condition, our medical staff members will choose the right product and treatment.
