Dermal fillers, also known as injectable implants, soft tissue fillers, or wrinkle fillers are approved by the FDA for use in helping to create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face, including nasolabial folds (the lines extending from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth), cheeks, chin, lips, and back of the hands.
Most dermal fillers are naturally absorbed over time, patients may need to repeat the procedure after some time to maintain the desired effect. Successful results will depend on the underlying tissue structure and the volume and type of filler used. The time that the effect lasts depends on the filler (ie Voluma versus Juvederm vs Scultpra) and the location of the injection (ie nasolabial fold versus cheek versus lip).
