Facial fillers are injectables that can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other characteristics of aging skin, providing patients with a smoother and younger looking complexion.

The idea of facial fillers can seem scary to many patients, due to a fear of pain resulting from the injections. Many fillers contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic that helps minimize pain during and after treatment. However, some patients do report mild discomfort during treatment.
