Facial fillers are flexible substances that we can inject into the skin to improve fine wrinkles , dehydrated lips without turgidity, increase cheekbones, repair facial imperfections, improve scars and lift deep furrows.

There are different types of facial fillers, such as collagen, fat and the most used in our centers, which is Hyaluronic Acid , since it does not involve allergy tests or surgical treatments.. This, together with its high efficiency at low cost and with minimal risks, makes it today our facial filling system of choice.

There are various types of hyaluronic acids in the market, depending on the area to be treated, the type of skin or the patient's expectations, the professional will choose the most appropriate for each case.


Duration of facial fillers

The result, duration and frequency of the treatment will depend firstly on the type of filler we use, the treated areas and the capacity of re-absorption of the materials by the patient's skin.. The results usually last between 8 and 18 months , although it is advisable in most cases to carry out "recall" sessions that will allow us to prolong the result with a smaller amount of product.. Combined techniques such as the use of botulinum toxin in expression wrinkles also favor a longer duration of the result.


Hyaluronic acid, safe and effective

Facial fillers are generally considered safe and effective. The specialist after making the clinical history will decide if there is any medical indication to carry out the treatment and if it is the most appropriate in that case.
