Injectable, Cosmetic Fillers

The Importance of seeking a professional

In the state of Florida, physicians’ assistants, nurse practitioner, or any medical professional can inject cosmetic fillers legally. There is not a lot of training required in order to provide injectable cosmetic fillers. While the incidence of complications is low, you should seek a healthcare professional with ample experience that can treat and correct should a complication arise.

Fillers are becoming more and more popular for both the face and the body. There are many different types of fillers as well as off-brand fillers.

There are temporary fillers (Juvéderm, Restylane, Revanesse® Versa™, Hyaluronic acid) which last between 6 months to 2 years.

There are semi-permanent fillers, like Radiesse, which last a little bit longer.

Finally, you have permanent fillers, like silicone and fat injections, which lasts forever. This sounds like the obvious option; however, one should use caution because if there is a complication like a lump, it is significantly more difficult to remedy.

Most people feel that the safest option is the temporary fillers because if there is a complication, it is an easy fix. Simply inject an enzyme that dissolves the hyaluronic acid if you are unsatisfied with the result.

The best providers of injectable cosmetic fillers are dermatologists and board-certified plastic surgeons. Dr. Kim provides a wide array of cosmetic injectables and enjoys educating his patients on the benefits as well as the risks involved.
