Facial Fillers 101: A Complete Guide to Injectable Fillers

Over the years, many celebrities, such as Kylie Jenner, Katy Perry, Kaley Cuoco, and Anna Faris have openly admitted to using injectable fillers to make their facial features more prominent and sharp. This has increased the demand for dermal fillers as more women strive for an improved appearance.

As you age, your skin starts showing signs of aging with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Your facial skin becomes thinner, and the areas around your cheeks and nose seem hollower. Injectable fillers buff out these imperfections in the skin while giving you younger-looking skin.

Are you thinking about getting injectable fillers? Here’s what you need to know about them to reach a decision.

What Are Injectable Fillers Made of?

There are many different types of injectable fillers available in the market. Your skincare specialist will decide which will work best for you depending on your skin type and the area you want to treat. Here are some of the most widely-used fillers:

  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Poly-L-lactic acid
  • Polymethylmethacrylate
  • Calcium Hydroxilapatite
  • Fat injections (your own fat is extracted from other parts of the body and injected in the desired spot).
