Fillers

 

 

 

Fillers are used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, folds, depressions and sagging tissues of the face.  Traditional uses of fillers include treatment of nasolabial folds (creases from the nose to the mouth), marionette lines (crease from the corner of the mouth to the chin), tear troughs (hollowed areas around the eyes), and to fill the lips.  Firmer forms of injectables such as Restylane Lyft and Voluma, can be used to support sagging tissues of the face.

Fillers Address?
