Why are dermal fillers used?

During the normal course of ageing, our body starts to lose collagen. Collagen is a natural substance that is present in our body, including in areas of skin, muscle, and bone. As we age, we start to lose collagen that eventually causes skin laxity (loose skin) and loss of volume.

Dermal fillers can:

Add volume to saggy skin
Make facial features more symmetric
Smooth lines and wrinkles
Add volume to lips and cheeks
