There are some misconceptions regarding facial fillers out there, including in the Miami area. Some are confused about what a filler injection can help with, and who it’s recommended for.

Well, the biggest issue solved by fillers is lost volume. Every year the older we get, we lose some volume in our face. Sometimes the change is so subtle that we wake up and look in the mirror and realize that we aren’t satisfied with our look. But we don’t know how it got this way.

Fillers are a commonly chosen option among men and women in their 30s and 40s, because that is when lost volume often begins and becomes most apparent.

Don’t Confuse Fillers With Botox/Dysport

While they are both very effective at achieving their purpose, Botox and fillers like Restylane are not the same thing, and serve a different purpose. Botox helps reduce the appearance of sags and wrinkles of the forehead by causing them to relax. Fillers are injected to provide volume into the skin to replace the tissues that have begun to fade because of aging.


Restylane is a bio-friendly gel that is injected into areas of the face that have lost volume, like the cheeks. The result is a more youthful appearance, but in a natural way. This is a non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery.

Clinical trials of Restylane show that after two months, there is a 95.2% improvement.

Is It Right For Me?

Most often, the answer is yes. Because the filler substance is friendly to the body, and because it is a non-invasive procedure, most any person can experience the benefits of facial fillers like Restylane.
