Similar to collagen replacement therapy, fillers allow for an easy, physician-administered office treatment to add volume and smoothness to the face while softening folds and wrinkles. Youthful skin is rich in collagen and fat, and as we age, the distribution and function of collagen and fat in our skin gradually changes, showing the signs of aging. Fillers improve the appearance of forehead creases, frown lines, under eye bags, nasolabial folds, upper lip lines, downturned lip corners, chin creases, thin/asymmetrical lips, and the bony appearance of aging hands.
Benefits of Fillers:
