A: A filler refers to “Fill” that means to add something. Therefore, a filler is a combination word referred to filling substances such as Fat or Hyaluronic acid which is the current trend.

Q: Be afraid of flowing, deforming and disfiguring face
A: Mostly, these side effects cause by fake fillers, unknown fillers or liquid silicone instead of Hyaluronic acid. As I said, liquid silicone will not dissolve on its own. When it stays a long time, it can flow until it deforms. There is no cure, it only needs to be scraped off. This one must be very careful. Perhaps some quacks will use it because it's cheaper.

For example, if you want to inject a superficial area of skin, you will need to choose lighter and smaller filler molecules to prevent lumps and bumps. But the downside is that it won't last very long.
