As we age the skin and body undergo structural changes. There is a general redistribution of soft tissue and fatty deposits throughout the body. The skin also changes with some structural layers thinning and others thickening.
Dermal fillers are able to help reverse some of the visible signs of aging. By adding volume to thinned areas and plumping out facial lines signs of aging can be erased. There are a variety of different products with differing indications depending on location and desired goal.
