In this video, Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh explains how using cosmetic fillers can help erase unwanted lines on your face. Injectable fillers do not paralyze muscles. Instead they replace or stimulate the development of natural substances that give the skin structure and fullness. The types of cosmetic fillers include collagen, hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and calcium hydroxylapatite. While the process of receiving cosmetic fillers is usually pain-free, some side effects including bruising and/or swelling may occur.
