Injectable Fillers are an effective treatment for:
Injectable fillers are the second most common cosmetic procedure after Botox.

Frequently asked questions
Why are fillers so popular?
Fillers reliably result in the desired cosmetic outcome, have excellent safety profiles with minimal downtime, and have relatively low costs.
Are the changes permanent?
The vast majority of fillers are non-permanent. Some fillers like polylactic acid are semi-permanent or even permanent, but most procedures are temporary. Longer lasting fillers are not the focus of this article – they have their uses – but it’s always a good idea to inquire with your cosmetic dermatologist for all the options.
How drastic a change can I expect?
That’s up to the patient. The patient decides what they want from the procedure. At Skin Effect our goal is to provide you with a natural, subtle, soft improvements – enough to notice a difference, but one that is not aggressive or drastic. Some patients do prefer a more dramatic change and will opt for a larger dose of filler. Communicate what you want clearly with the performing Registered Nurse during your consultation.
Safety, side-effects, and downtime:
Along with being effective at rejuvenating the face, fillers also have excellent safety profiles, with minimal downtime, making it an extremely convenient procedure. The most common side-effects (still very rare) are infections, and irregular movement of the filler, both of which can be treated.
How much do fillers cost?
