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.
