What Are Fillers?
Fillers are an important procedure in the fight against aging. Dr. Hala Koudsi at Hala Koudsi, M.D. in Torrance, CA uses fillers in her practice to help her patients look younger.
Fillers are used to “fill” skin that has lost tissue volume. Newer fillers are made of natural ingredients such as calcium and hyaluronic acid. Some of the popular brands of fillers include Juvederm and Botox. When visiting your Dermatologist, a trained specialist will determine which filler will best suit your needs. Fillers can last anywhere from 6 – 18 months depending on the individual, and are most commonly used in the following areas:
• Nasal labial folds
• Marionette lines
• Facial wrinkles
• Vertical lip lines
• Corners of the mouth
Some fillers can even be used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments. With fillers, you can successfully improve the appearance of aging skin.
Fillers are injected using a tiny needle and treatment is usually well-tolerated. If you are nervous about injections, a numbing spray or cream can be used first if you wish.
