Various classes of fillers now exist to smooth out lines and furrows around the nose and mouth, or fill in areas of creases or ridges such as frown lines on the forehead. They can also restore a youthful volume to the face. The Alexandra Clinic uses a non-allergenic FDA-approved filler called hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to provide volume and support to the skin.
This product comes in varying forms of viscosity to target superficial and deep volume restoration needs.
This procedure can be performed during a routine office visit with immediate results and minimal downtime. Results typically last about 6-9 months. Specific products may be recommended that last even longer than this.
