Soft tissue fillers are injectable gels used to temporarily ‘fill in’ lines and wrinkles, and restore lost volume. A few well-placed injections can help erase years from your face and most people will never know you’ve had any help. Various fillers (e.g. Restylane®, JUVÉDERM® Perlane®) are available and your doctor will help choose the best one for you. Areas that are typically treated include frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), the deep lines between your nose and lips – ‘smile lines’ (naso-labial lines), sleep lines, cheek wrinkles, jowls, under eye hollows, lip enhancement, back of hands, décolletage and hollow cheeks.
The procedure is quick. It usually takes less than 30 minutes. The benefits can be seen immediately.
