What are fillers?

Soft-tissue fillers are the second most popular minimally invasive procedures performed every year, right behind Botox. They can have a wide range of molecular makeups, and most replicate or imitate naturally occurring substances in our body.

Modern dermal fillers are made to smooth the skin and eliminate undesirable signs of aging. Some fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane, you may have heard of. Others haven’t hit the mainstream and aren’t widely known outside of cosmetics.

What do fillers do?

Your skin stays tight and smooth because of three chemicals: collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. They keep your skin soft, spongy, and smooth by creating a type of meshwork directly underneath your skin.

As you age, you begin to produce less of each of them, and your skin starts to sag. Dermal fillers add collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin back into the areas you choose to target. The result is plumper, smoother skin. Dr. Kauffman uses fillers to help with the following:

Unlike Botox, which uses a neurotoxin to block muscle signals, dermal fillers resupply naturally-occurring chemicals, which means your face won’t look frozen or unnatural. With proper care, the effect of fillers should last for up to a year.

Filler details

While filler injections make look painful, most patients feel only minor discomfort. Dr. Kauffman will numb the area beforehand will use specialized techniques to minimize any pain. Although some treatments may take up to an hour, most only take a few minutes.
