Fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body. They are widely used in aesthetic medicine in order to correct volume loss, enhance facial features, attain facial symmetry as well as to give someone a natural and healthy look. Dermal fillers can also stimulate collagen growth as well as improve skin hydration. Fillers are minimally invasive and are considered a good non-surgical alternative to plastic surgery.
