What Is a Filler?
Filler is technically a type of injectable used to address a variety of cosmetic concerns like wrinkles and scars. The main ingredients in fillers include hyaluronic acid, collagen, and poly-L-lactic acid, which are used to plump and hydrate the skin. Since these ingredients are placed directly into the skin, they are often referred to as fillers. They can also be used to correct areas of the face that are sunken or hollowed out, like the cheeks or under the eyes. There are also fillers for the lips, as well as for other parts of the body. When it comes to fillers, there are two basic types: synthetic fillers and autologous fillers. A synthetic filler is made from synthetic polymers, proteins, and minerals. An autologous filler, on the other hand, is made from your own body’s naturally occurring substances, like your own blood or fat.

Types of Filler
- Hyaluronic Acid: This is the most common type of filler used today. It is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body that is commonly used to hydrate the face and plump up facial features like the cheeks, lips, and nasolabial folds.

- Calcium based Fillers (Radiesse): This is a protein found naturally in the human body that keeps the skin healthy and plump. Using collagen as a filler can help treat areas of the face that are sunken or hollowed out, like the cheeks, jaw line, nasolabial folds, under the eyes.

–Poly-L-Lactic Acid: This is another common type of filler. It is a synthetic substance that is used to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and the face’s nasolabial folds.

- Human Fat: Fat is a naturally occurring substance in the body that can be harvested through liposuction and then used as a filler. It is commonly used to fill in acne scars, wrinkles, and the face’s nasolabial folds.

–Alloderm: This is a synthetic material that is commonly used as a filler for the skin under the eyes. It is usually used to treat dark circles and wrinkles around the eyes.
How Do Fillers Work?
When you use a filler, a highly skilled injector will inject the filler into your skin. The filler is then injected into a specific area of the face — or other body part — and helps to plump up the area, giving you a softer and more youthful look. The main thing that these fillers do is cause your own collagen to be released. The reason they do this, though, is because they are injected into collagen-deficient areas of the body. As collagen is released, your wrinkles are reduced, your lips plump up, and your skin is hydrated. Just make sure you choose a good injector and a safe filler, as not all fillers are safe and effective for use. For example, fat transfer is a common filler that can be used for the face and body, but it has a low success rate and can result in complications.

Who Can Get Fillers?
The best way to know if you are a good candidate for fillers is to schedule a consultation with a highly skilled and licensed injector. During your appointment, your injector will discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns, and then recommend the best course of action. Generally speaking, most people are good candidates for fillers. The only exception is if you have an active infection in the area where you’ll be receiving the injection. In these cases, many doctors will recommend waiting up to a month before getting the injections. The best candidates for fillers are people who are generally healthy, but who have a few areas on their face or body that they would like to improve. People who are generally unhealthy may not be good candidates for fillers.

The Bottom Line
Overall, fillers are a great way to address the signs of aging and maintain your youthful appearance. However, it is important to note that fillers do not stop aging, and they only treat one small area on your face or body. To halt the signs of aging completely and maintain a youthful appearance, you will need more than just fillers. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat a nutritious diet, and get a sufficient amount of sleep to ensure that your body is functioning optimally.
