The Chronicle of Cosmetic Medicine Pearls

Smoothing, not filling, superficial skin

For patients who have very fine lines, such as around the eyes and mouth, I do not recommend chasing them with a filler. Instead, a product such as Restylane’s Skinboosters can be used. They do not provide volume, but rather smooth the superficial skin. The injection schedule for these products is different that with fillers, though. We give three injections that are done a month apart, and a ‘top up’ that is done at around six months.
