What Is A Face Filler aka Dermal Filler?

Over time, the natural elasticity and fullness of your face and skin decreases. A facial filler is made of hyaluronic acid, a gel like substance that your body produces naturally. Facial fillers last for much longer than Botox and are naturally absorbed into the body over time.

Modern technology allows doctors to tap into an entire tool kit of age defying fillers. The truth is facial fillers is an art as much as it is a science. At MGMD, we have years of experience in order to place the right amount in the right places.
