Hyaluronic acid fillers are often recommended for those using fillers for the first time, as they are the most temporary option and usually last 6 to 18 months. Radiesse by Merz Aesthetics is an FDA approved CAHA filler that is used to soften and minimize nasolabial folds and improve the contours of the jawline. Calcium hydroxylapatite is biosynthetically produced, meaning that no animals or animal products are used, and it produces a very natural result with minimal side effects.
Polyalkylimide has very little reaction with human tissue, making it biocompatible and requiring no allergy testing. Polylactic acid is a synthetic dermal filler that stimulates the body's own production of collagen. Restylane-L, Juvederm and Belotero are commonly used for facial wrinkles, asymmetry and volume loss. PMMA is often used for a more permanent solution for facial wrinkles. Injections of facial fillers are usually an outpatient procedure done with anesthetic medications.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, side effects tend to go away in seven to 14 days.

Injectable dermal fillers can fill thin lips, improve surface contours, smooth facial folds, remove wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scars.
