Fillers at The Medical Spa
Fillers provide a minimally invasive solution to restore a more youthful look. It works by filling in areas where volume is lost. As we age, volume loss is common. Then this loss, aka subcutaneous fat, makes fine lines and wrinkles become more visible. Fillers are a great tool to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Below, you’ll learn more about the different types of fillers offered here. When you’re ready, please contact The Medical Spa to schedule a personalized assessment.
