DO ANY FILLERS PROVIDE PERMANENT RESULTS?

Question:

Do any fillers provide permanent results? Which provide the longest lasting results and what can they be used for?

Answer:

There are several fillers available which are semipermanent and are used in Europe and Canada. In the US Artefill is one of the recently FDA approved fillers to be approved. Artefill has little permanent beads in it and as such can be rejected by the body which would give little mosquito bite like bumps over the “filled areas”. As such and with the negligible complication rates of hyaluronic acid and hydroxyapatite we are awaiting futher safety data before we offer these products to our patients.

Fat grafting creates a natural augmentation for the face using your own “filler”. Fat is usually harvested from the abdomen, flanks, or inner thighs; and about one third of the volume remains after the treatment.
