The face starts to lack volume and appears aged with deeper nasolabial folds, unaesthetic lines, a deeper fold, the lips start to thin, and turning down the corners of the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers are injected right underneath these folds to replace the volume lost which creates a younger look in the face by replenishing your body's natural production of hyaluronic acid, which diminishes as you age.
