1 Dr. Lyon ,what exactly are skin fillers and what type of substances are used?

Skin fillers are Substances injected under facial skin that lift it to fill in depressions and elevate the lower eyelid as needed. Fat, taken from elsewhere in your body can plump up hollow cheeks, but tends to reabsorb over time as it does not have its own blood supply. Collagen works well, but has fallen out of favor as a few people have allergic reactions to it.
