FAQs
  WHAT IS IT?
 
Cosmetic Fillers are injectable substances used to fill in wrinkles on the face. Collagen is the most well known of these substances. Recently, the FDA approved the synthetic filler, Restylane, which is a naturally occurring sugar which is chemically cross linked to give it long lasting effect. Restylane lasts 6-9 months and is non allergenic so that skin testing is not required.
 
  HOW DOES IT WORK?
 
Wrinkles are due to a loss of natural collagen in the underlying layers of the skin due to age and environmental factors. An injectable filler is used to replace the lack of collagen beneath the skin. The skin is then plumped outward and the wrinkles in the area are reduced.
 
  WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?
 
The smoothing effects of the injectable filler appear immediately, and may last from 3 months to many years, depending upon the substance which is used. The area may be slightly red rights after treatment, but most patients feel comfortable returning to work or other daily routines directly from the office.
 
Why is there so much excitement over the recent approval of Restylane by the FDA?
  It is considered by experts to be the idea filler and has been used in countries all over the world for many years. Finally, it is available in this country.
   
Why is Restylane such as good filler?
  It is a naturally occurring sugar which is synthetically cross-linked to allow it to last a long time. There are no major side effects, it is very thick and retains it position and shape after injection. It is very soft and not at all lumpy like other fillers such as Collagen.
   
Do fillers ever cause cancer or other serious diseases?
  No, none have been reported.
