Facial Fillers Q & A

What are facial fillers?

Facial fillers are a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that addresses the main causes of facial aging. Over the years, your face loses fat, and skin loses its elasticity. As a result, the skin begins to crease and sag, forming lines and wrinkles.

Although Botox® Cosmetic, another popular cosmetic injectable, treats wrinkles that come from facial expressions, fillers treat wrinkles that develop as skin loses volume and elasticity. Fillers restore lost volume, plump facial contours, and minimize the look of lines and wrinkles.

Most facial fillers contain a substance like hyaluronic acid, which attracts moisture and adds volume to the skin. Cosmetic treatment with facial fillers is highly customizable and results can be long-lasting. Some fillers smooth wrinkles for up to six months, while others can last for more than two years. 

What lines and wrinkles do facial fillers treat?

There are facial fillers specially formulated to treat many of the most common signs of facial aging. Fillers might be right for you if you’re bothered by the look of:

  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Thinning lips
  • Under-eye shadows 
  • Recessed scars


Cheeks can sag as your face loses fat below the surface of the skin. Lines and wrinkles can form around your nose and mouth as the skin gets drier, crepier, and more delicate. Fillers plump skin, giving you a smoother, more youthful complexion.
