What are Botox soft tissue fillers?
Also called dermal fillers, Botox soft tissue fillers are injectable skin implants that replace lost volume under the skin and restore plumpness to the skin. These gel-like substances reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well as add volume to areas like the lips and cheekbones. Botox soft tissue filler treatments fall under a dermatological treatment. Unlike more permanent cosmetic procedures, Botox soft tissue fillers are temporary. The effects of the fillers last anywhere from a few months to a year, often requiring multiple treatments to maintain the anti-aging effect.
Botox soft tissue fillers are very common and are a popular treatment option for signs of aging in the skin. Working with a dermatologist, you can discover what fillers would be most effective for your skin type. The FDA has approved a variety of ingredients for fillers, but not all Botox soft tissue fillers are approved by the FDA. It is important to know which types of fillers to use to avoid any unapproved treatments, which can pose a higher risk to the individual.
