A filler treatment adds volume to the skin and works to soften and reduce the appearance of deep lines. Filler treatments can also be used to exaggerate and enhance your facial features. The treatment involves injecting a gel containing Hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin.
