What Are Fillers?
Soft tissue fillers are instant volume replacement solutions for the aging face or serve as an enhancement for areas such as the lips or under the eyes. Historically, the concept of volume replacement originated with the injection of collagen and silicone to replace lost volume. As skin sags, volume replacement in the area where the skin has fallen can mask the effects of gravity. Fillers can be used to rebuild a full cheek mound, soften deep folds, fill out the hollowness below the eyes and even plump the lips.
