Filler injections are a cosmetic treatment used to smooth wrinkles or pitted scars in the skin, usually on the face. They are also used to make the lips fuller. When injected under the skin, a filler raises or puffs up that area. This usually goes away over time.
Dr. Hanan Marafie and her team at Marafie Clinic use fillers that are approved by the U.S. Food And Drug Administration and has a range of products to suit the needs of all their patients.
Filler Injections FAQ
What is the difference between Botox® and Filler Injections?
Botox® and fillers are used to minimize signs of aging. Botox® is a purified protein that targets muscles that form wrinkles. It relaxes these muscles temporarily and prevents lines and wrinkles. Facial fillers help lift skin that is collagen-depleted and can improve aging that results from volume loss. Botox® is the best choice to prevent wrinkles that occur with motion. It is typically placed in between the eyebrows, around the eyes and on the forehead. Facial fillers address areas which are hollow or volume depleted and can provide fullness to these areas. Both can be used together and can make you appear refreshed and revitalized.
