What is it?
Fillers are commonly used to fill and volumize areas of volume loss and deficiency that are often encountered with ageing, to achieve a more youthful appearance and balanced facial contour. When skilfully placed along bony vectors, it also provides lifting effect to improve deep sagging skin folds and reduce heaviness of the face.
It can also be used on those looking to augment or enhance facial features such as nose, lips or chin for a more defined projection and attractive facial proportion.
For men, fillers can also enhance masculinization of features such as sculpting a more chiselled jawline or a stronger chin.
