Temporary vs permanent filler is one better?

Jeffrey Kenkel, MD

Like with anything we do, the risks and benefits must be weighed and tilted toward the “benefit” side.
While there is the advantage of not needing multiple treatments with a so called “ permanent” filler, there are downsides.The face is constantly changing and with that, filler placed today may not be right a few years down the road. Additionally, permanent fillers do have a higher complication profile and are not “reversible”, emphasizing the need to see those physicians with expertise in this area.

I personally love the hyaluronic acid fillers. They are safe, reproducible, and carry substantial longevity. They are my choice for augmenting all areas of the face.
