I'm curious of how safe all these fillers are. Will they in years to come pose problems? How long have they been around for?
Long-term Effects of Injectable Fillers?

Long list of fillers
There are so many fillers in the market. In general the most commonly used ones are;
1. Hyaluronic acid fillers: Juvederm, Restylane etc.. They are safe when injected by a trained professional who knows the anatomy of the area.
2. Radiesse: Hydroxyappetite derivative filler. FDA approved for nasolabial folds mainly.
3. Scupltra: FDA approved for HIV induced facial atrophy.
4. Fat grafting: Your own fat; works well in volume replacement e.g cheeks,lips etc...
And the list has a lot more but the main issue is that all these materials are safe,it is the user that makes all the difference.
