Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are the most common type of fillers used all around the world.
This course goes through what you need to know about them and how they work.
Dermal fillers, as their name suggests, are used to ‘fill’ areas of the face such as cheeks to give an overall more plump, youthful look. As we age, parts of our face can lose its form due to various factors.
