What is Fillmed?
The Fillmed range is a product line by Filorga encompassing both mesotherapy and dermal filler products that help to address age-related skin issues. Marketed previously as Filorga, these products are based on the anti-aging and skin revitalization properties of hyaluronic acid as well as the patented NCTF solution, an anti-aging cocktail encompassing more than 50 active compounds. The products in the Fillmed range have their respective indications, from correction of photoaging (skin laxity, dull skin tone and fine lines) and cutaneous dehydration to the treatment of deep wrinkles and volumetric loss. Fillmed is manufactured by Filorga, an international provider of cosmeceuticals and aesthetic injectables based in France.

These effects result in improved dermal texture and quality and the long-term protection of skin against harmful UV damage.
