Fillers

What are fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore volume loss due to aging or genetics. They can be used to build structure to the face, such as cheek bones, or fill volume deficits, such as in the lips. There are several brands of fillers, with 3 general types. Hyaluronic acid (like Juvederm, Restylane, Revanesse), calcium based (Radiesse), or collagen stimulating (Sculptra). These fillers have their own unique benefits, are all biocompatible with the body, and safe to use for a large majority of people.
