Aging is inevitable, and as the face ages, it loses the collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid which give it its youthful volume and suppleness.  Dermal fillers allow us to blunt time’s razor edge.  By filling in the lines and wrinkles, replacing lost collagen and hyaluronic acid, we can restore the face to a more youthful appearance.  A quick, 15 minute consultation and a few simple injections is all that it takes.
