What it is
Fillers can be used to restore volume to areas of the face like the cheeks and temples, nasolabial folds, to add volume to thinning lips, enhance the chin and cosmetically correct the nose and even the hands.
How it works
As we get older, a decrease in our levels of hyaluronic acid occurs which results in reduced volume, furrows, hollowing and wrinkles. Fillers like Juvéderm® commonly contain hyaluronic acid and are used to bring back the plump and healthy appearance of skin.
