At Nirvana Medical Spa, we use FDA approved Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
These are a popular choice for reducing the facial lines and wrinkles that result from aging. These fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the body’s connective tissues and skin. Once a filler is injected, it will plump up facial skin that may have lost volume or elasticity due to the aging process – filling in wrinkles from the inside and making the skin appear younger and rejuvenated.
Our experienced and trained practitioner will decide which filler is best for your individual aesthetic needs. Every treatment plan is unique to the individual we are treating!
