Volume Replacement Filler

To fill means putting “a thing put into a space”. In facial aesthetics, a thin drawn out face conveys the message of aging or illness, whereas facial volume conveys health and beauty. Losing weight makes people look more aged whilst fillers increase facial volume and can improve facial aesthetics. 

What types of fillers are available?

There are many different types, typically permanent or temporary. Permanent fillers do not degrade, however, if the result is not pleasing, removal or reversal is difficult. Temporary fillers break down over time, which makes sense, as the face is continually changing. It also means they can be easily removed if desired.

Key things to remember

Fillers are safe and effective. They enhance rather than create beauty. Fillers are like sculpting and honing, rather than transforming, and the best results are achieved by using a little at a time.
