What are aesthetic fillers? Injectable fillers soften folds and replenish areas of volume loss, whether due to aging, weight loss, or simple genetics.  Hyaluronic acid fillers and other fillers have been in use for more than 20 years and typically last 9-12 months, or longer, depending on the patient and where they are placed.
