DR. HENRY: It’s the one thing that’s affordable. It doesn’t hurt a lot. You don’t have to have anesthesia for it. It’s a common thing to think about having done because a lot more people would have it done. You know, if people start doing it in their 20s, sometimes 18 year olds come in here for fillers, to have their lips made fuller. People have to take care of the lines around their mouth, pump up their cheeks, areas around their lower orbital area. So, it’s something that’s easy to do. It’s not that expensive. And if you’re getting ready for a hot date, you know, in the next couple days it’s a great thing to think about having done. It mainly consists of hyaluronic acid which is something that’s natural to our own bodies. It usually lasts in our bodies anywhere from four to six months up to a year or so. And that’s the most common one. There’s Perlane, Juvederm. And in Europe they have hundreds of different products. There’s RADIESSE which is a longer acting filler that’s made of hydroxy appetite. Lasts a little bit longer. Lasts up to a couple years. There’s another one called Sculptra which was made in Europe, and that’s also available - - facial - - . For people who don’t want to have plastic surgery procedures, facelifts, things like that, fillers are a great option.
