Dermal fillers are a non-invasive treatment used to restore youth and volume to the face. As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and natural hydration. This, combined with the effects of gravity, can lead to lines, wrinkles and sagging of the skin.
Dermal fillers, soft tissue fillers, lip fillers or wrinkle fillers are used to help create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face, or correct facial asymmetry. Common areas that are injected include lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, tear troughs and non-surgical rhinoplasty.
