Finally, there is an answer to those lines and wrinkles on the face that is lasting and does not require testing prior to use. Unlike bovine collagen products, haluronate fillers are composed of a naturally occurring substance (hyaluronic acid) that is found in the human body. The filler however, is manufactured and has no human products for possible contamination. Dr. Borodic recommends such fillers to his patients as these products are generally safe and immediately effective. Cosmetic dermal fillers restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasal labial folds, chin dimpling, marionette folding, and cheek augmentation.  The non-surgical procedure is quick, fast and the results are long-lasting. There is often no recovery time!

WHAT ARE FILLERS?

The products listed in this section are non-animal-based fillers that virtually eliminate any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reactions. They work by restoring volume lost with age and restore fullness to the skin. These products are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that exists in your body. Aside from the minimal risks, these fillers each have specific properties and advantages and disadvantages. There are varying degrees of duration, viscosity, and cohesiveness, all which can impact the end result. Individual facial characteristics, goals and administration techniques are customized to achieve the benefits and better results.

LONG LASTING RESULTS vs. OTHER CONSIDERATIONS.

Although some fillers have longer duration, the bulky nature of the filler effect is an attribute that can be undesirable, particularly in certain facial types. In other facial types, the duration and heavy bulk characteristics of long acting fillers can be advantageous. Individualized consultation is necessary to achieve the best results each of these products can offer.
