Fillers (hyaluronic acid) are non-surgical methods used to correct facial contours, eliminate wrinkles or provide volume. They are used in areas such as face, neck and hand to achieve a smoother and younger look. They are among the most popular aesthetic interventions because of their low risk and immediate results.
