What are fillers?

Fillers are used for a variety of issues, including non-dynamic wrinkles, like laugh lines, and lip enhancements. Is a mixture of pain killer, lidocaine, and hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance that forms a fluid matrix in which collagen fibers are embedded.

Why use fillers?

Fillers are safe, affordable, and an easy way to improve one's appearance for a relatively long time (6-18 months).

As we age, collagen production in the skin declines and leaves many with thinner lips, tiny vertical wrinkles around the lips, and a longer, down turned smile. Fillers can reverse this appearance with a very natural looking, youthful end result.

Are touch ups necessary?
