Hi Lea, thank you for the question.

‘True’ fillers are not used for rejuvenating the chest however a product called Restylane Vital is used for rejuvenating the skin. This is not a filler but has the same hyaluronic acid used in the NASHA fillers with the main difference being that these HA molecules are not bound.
What this means is that the HA is metabolized relatively quickly by the body and as such one needs to repeat the injections monthly over three months and boosters need to be applied every 3 months thereafter.

For best results my suggestion is to use an entire 1 ml for the chest area at each of these visits.
