Facial fillers add volume to the face to reduce the signs of aging. As we age, fat and collagen beneath the skin begins to diminish, resulting in loss of volume, sagging skin and sunken areas on the face. Facial fillers can help to fill in lines such as nasolabial folds around the mouth area, plump up cheek volume, improve an under eye hollow look, and restore a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. They can also add fullness to the lip area and even fill in deep wrinkles around the lips. Facial fillers can be used alone or in conjunction with other wrinkle inhibitors like Botox or with surgical procedures such as a facelift, chin augmentation, eye lift and rhinoplasty. Peter J. Abramson, M.D., also can perform a complete liquid facelift using a combination of facial fillers and Botox® Cosmetic or other wrinkle inhibitors.

How Long Do Facial Fillers Last?
Facial fillers have different characteristics and can last for variable lengths of time. Age, genetic background, skin quality and lifestyle all play a role in the facial filler’s staying power. A big factor in filler staying power is also the location on the face to be injected. For example, the same facial filler might last 5-10 times longer around the eyes as opposed to around the lips. It is not uncommon for patients receiving fillers such as Restylane around the eyes, upper eyelids and under eyes to have results lasting for years!
