Are you considering a way to soften and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on your face? Before you choose an injectable or filler to smooth and shape your face, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Food and Drug Administration recommend you do your homework. A few things to consider as you plan your procedure include:
- Find a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in fillers to conduct your procedure.
- Talk with your board certified plastic surgeon about appropriate treatment injection sites and the risks associated with the procedure.
- Be aware that FDA has reviewed and approved different products for use in different areas of the face. The FDA may not have reviewed the use of certain soft tissue fillers for all locations in the body.
