What are fillers?
Fillers restore volume to tissue, thereby correcting deep lines or folds in the skin that appear as a person ages.
A network of fibrous tissue serves to provide structure to the skin’s surface. But as you age or if you suffer significant injuries, that underlying structure gets damaged. As a result, it has trouble regenerating causing folds to appear in the skin.
Dermal fillers are used to fill those voids and restore the underlying structure. Some potential uses for fillers include erasing crow’s feet, frown lines, smile lines, or skin folds that form on either side of the mouth.
Are filler injections and Botox safe?
Though large doses of the Botox toxin can be lethal, there’s no need to worry. Dr. Arsenous of Cosmetic & Surgical Arts is a board-certified surgeon knows how to safely administer a very small dose, which she dilutes with saline. Occasionally there are some side effects, which could include:
- Mild pain and swelling
- Muscle weakness
While more serious side effects or infections are possible with both Botox and fillers, they’re rare when administered by a very qualified professional.
