Cosmetic fillers restore volume to the face and can add structure and a youthful look as well. Depending on the type of filler and the depth at which it is injected, you can smooth out fine lines on the surface of the skin, fill out deep lines (eg: nasolabial folds), augment soft tissues (such as the lips), or even effectively augment facial bone structure e.g. chin, cheek/jawline.

The rapidly expanding repertoire of cosmetic filler injectable treatments is perfect to suit your needs. Fillers can be utilized during an office visit, rather than requiring a trip to the operating room. With some treatments, no anesthetic is necessary, as the needles utilized are so small that discomfort is minimal.
