The perfect dermal filler treatment to bring a natural contour and shape your face. Facial contouring removes wrinkles and corrects the contours of your face by using a natural substance already in your skin. Hyaluronic acid is already part of your body, so there'll be no chance of rejection or other complications. It blends harmoniously with the fluids in the skin without the risk of any adverse reaction.
As we age, it’s natural that we begin to lose volume in our cheeks, especially across our cheekbones. This can pull the face in a downward motion and make us look older. With the help of expertly applied cheek fillers however, it’s possible to lift this area and replace the lost volume, creating a naturally youthful appearance. Adding volume in this area has a number of benefits, it adds a beautiful contour to your cheekbones and can ‘slim’ the face.
Cheek enhancements may be desirable either to improve the definition of the cheek bones or to lift the mid face as part of facial rejuvenation. This treatment can also diminish the appearance of nose to mouth lines which then gives the face a fresher, more youthful look.
