Soften Signs of Aging
Dermal fillers are safe injectable products such as Restylane or Macrolane that replace lost soft tissue, and are used to replenish the skin's natural volume. They are often used to soften signs of aging, for example the smile lines (as shown in the before and after photos below), or to enhance the lips, the cheeks, or chin.
