Are there long term effects from fillers?

Long Term Effects of Sculptra
The recurrent use of fillers such as Sculptra and Voluma would not cause such negative effects. Sculptra, once injected, causes a localized inflammatory response, with a capsule forming around each molecule as it is metabolized. This results in increased collagen production and an increase in dermal (skin) thickness. The results with these fillers actually improves with time.
Rest assured, these fillers can produce amazing results, but always do your research and seek out an experienced injector.
Hope this helps,

No there is no evidence for this. In fact the longterm use of fillers (hyaluronic acidd in particular) has shown to somehow improve on the skin quality. Don't think too much!
Filler side effects
Hello, and thanks for your question. No, I have neither seen nor heard of this occurring. Filler is placed with the goal of replacing lost volume, not adding more volume than was originally present. If done correctly, there should be no skin stretching. In order to determine the best treatment plan for you, I recommend an in-person consultation with an expert. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
