As we get older it begins to show in our face and sometimes a resting face can be mistaken for a frown. Today there are so many options to reduce the signs of aging. Fortunately this means that there are a variety of surgical and non-surgical options. Vollure is a versatile injectable dermal filler; it is especially effective to correct wrinkles and lines in the area around the mouth and nose (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Vollure is made up of hyaluronic acid, and reduces the signs of aging by adding a modest amount of volume deep under the skin to smooth lines and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are a great option for those who do not wish to go through a surgery and are looking for a simple natural looking result.
