As time goes by, it is inevitable to notice the appearance of expression lines around the eyes, mouth, between the eyebrows, corners of the lips and nasolabial folds. In addition to that, aging can also reveal other problems that might affect the face’s aesthetic harmony, such as loss of volume in the lips and cheekbones.
Facial fillers are part of a quick and painless medical treatment that is performed through infiltrations, usually of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is naturally present in the human body and helps to hydrate and plump the skin.
Dermal fillers based on hyaluronic acid are safe and absorbable substances whose aesthetic effects are reversible. They can replace lost volume, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance in a fast and safe manner.
The hyaluronic acid filler can also be used to perform rhino-modeling (nose filling), which is an office procedure that allows you to modify and hide nose imperfections, improving the tip and back of the nose. The procedure takes about 15 minutes and is not very painful.
