What is Filler?
There are many types of fillers on the market. The one used at The Melbourne Smile Centre for facial rejuvenation is a newer generation version called Hyaluronic Acid which creates a softer, more natural result. Hyaluronic Acid is natural constituent of the facial structure and encourages hydration, so it absorbs ten times its weight in water. Therefore, not only does filler fill in a defect (such as a hollow) in the face, or enhance a structure such as lips, it also adds moisture to that particular sight which improves the overall appearance.
Fillers work to fill out or tent up hollows in the face that are naturally occurring genetically, with age or fatigue. They can also improve the look of thin crepey skin whilst filling out the hollows in the face. Common areas treated with filler include the lips, the trough under the eyes, the cheekbones, the nasolabial lines and frown lines.
