What are Filler Injections?
For those who want instant results when it comes to getting youthful, wrinkleless skin with fuller lips and cheeks, filler injections are the way to go. A Filler Injection procedure is a cosmetic treatment that is used to make the skin look young, fresh and plumper.
The injections are packed with dermal fillers that can be injected into your lips and around the face where there is a need. The most commonly used substance used in these injections is hyaluronic acid which is naturally found in body and is responsible for keeping the skin moisturized and hydrated especially around the eye area.
How do Filler Injections work?
These dermal fillers are injected in the already prepared skin with local anesthesia or numbing creams. Immediately the injected area starts to swell and looks fuller, icing help ease this discomfort. The ingredients of injections like hyaluronic acid nourishes and plumps the skin and make it wrinkleless and younger. It effects become visible as soon as the swelling subsides.
