Filler type V is now available at The Victorian Cosmetic Institute!
(Due to TGA restrictions, the full name of filler type V cannot be published.)
Filler type V is designed as a large volume filler, most suited to areas such as the cheeks or the chin. It is composed of a substance that is naturally found in the skin. The filler is similar to other fillers produced by Allergan, except that this filler is slightly thicker than the other fillers, and thus is intended for deeper placement in the face to augment larger areas, giving superior results here.
The other potential advantage of this filler is that it will last for approximately 12-18 months.
