Injectable implants can help correct and prevent the appearance of wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds by filling in areas where soft tissue has depleted due to age, external factors, or even illness. As the skin ages or comes into contact with harmful external factors like constant sun or smoke, the internal structure of the skin becomes compromised. Important proteins like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid are not produced as effectively as in younger, healthier skin, and so the skin becomes dry, loses volume, and even begins to wrinkle and sag.
Dermal fillers are able to fix this issue by implanting the lost substances, like hyaluronic acid, back into the skin, hydrating the skin on a cellular level and adding plumpness. Dermal fillers are also able to help stimulate cell production, leading to an increase in production in those important proteins like collagen and elastin. Some filler treatments even include antioxidant ingredients to help fight off free radicals, preventing further damage and providing long-lasting results. Dermal fillers are the most popular treatment for correcting nasolabial folds, the wrinkles that begin at the sides of the mouth and extend toward the nose.
The FDA has approved dermal fillers, also known as soft tissue fillers, injectable implants, or wrinkle fillers, for a number of uses to help create a smoother, more radiant appearance.

While dermal fillers are very versatile and can be used in many areas to help restore hydration and volume, there are a number of cosmetic treatments that they have not been approved for, including:
The FDA has also not approved more permanent silicone injectables for large-scale body enhancements or contouring. Attempting to use injectables in such a manner can have many adverse effects, including ongoing pain, infection, and even serious permanent injures such as scarring, disfigurement, embolism, stroke, and death.
While fillers have undergone controlled clinical studies to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment, there are still some risks associated with soft tissue filler injections. As with any medical procedure, short-term and long-term side effects are a possibility. Most side effects experienced are mild and will appear shortly after injection and go away in under 2 weeks.
Though these side effects have been reported, the vast majority of dermal injection procedures are safe and free of complication or serious adverse effects when administered by a licensed practitioner.
