Frequently Asked Questions

What are Dermal Fillers?

Are you beginning to notice hollowness in the cheeks, deeper lines in the nasolabial folds, thinning lips or those dreaded smoker’s lines? Would you like to re-volumize and soften these areas to give you a more youthful appearance? Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to restore volume and enhance natural facial features. Ovo’s physician injector will evaluate your face shape and the quality of your skin to give you the best lip filler, chin filler, cheek filler, temple filler, and jawline filler results. 

Which areas can I treat?

They can be used to treat:

  • Thin lips
  • Wrinkles around lips
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Temple region
  • Chin area
  • Scars
