Dermal filler injections are one of the most popular treatments in medical aesthetics. These injections require little to no recovery time and can provide immediate results. Filler injections commonly consist of hyaluronic acid or collagen, which our own body creates in the layers of the skin to provide volume, hydration, and support in the skin.
Filler injections can help to restore the effects of collagen lost with age, which creates an effect that fills in or softens wrinkles & adds volume to those areas depleted of fat or collagen and elastin. Check out this list of 4 common areas where fillers can be used.
Plump up Lips & Volumize Cheeks
Plumping lips might be one of the most well-known uses for dermal fillers. Lip filler treatments are easily customized to achieve a subtle enhancement to the natural shape of the lips and can also even out the texture of the lips by adding hydration and by creating symmetry. Dermal filler in the cheeks is a very common and popular area for treatment to help combat volume loss that occurs naturally with age and also with weight loss. Dermal filler in the cheeks has also become a very common treatment for all ages to provide mid-face support to lift jowls and the pre-jowl sulcus, improve the jawline, and minimize the transition of the tear trough to the cheek area.
Contour the Chin and Jawline
A popular area for dermal filler is in the chin and jawline. Filler can contour the chin by adding projection or length, depending on the need, creating symmetry to the proportions of the face. As we age, we actually lose bone mass, and with women especially, this can lead to a more recessed chin. Filler to the chin and jawline can improve your side profile & also reduce the appearance of a sagging neck.
Eliminate Marionette Lines & Nasolabial Folds
Marionette lines are visible below each corner of the mouth and can significantly add age to one’s face. Fillers can quickly replace the lost volume in these lines which in some cases, can instantly take years off a face. Often referred to as smile lines, nasolabial folds are the lines seen from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. This area is can also be corrected with filler to create a softer, more natural appearance in the midface.
Reduce Appearance of Scars
Fillers are also commonly used as a nonsurgical modality to reduce the appearance of facial scarring and skin imperfections. Facial scarring can create indents & uneven texture, which can often result in one feeling self-conscious or insecure about their appearance. Dermal fillers are another tool used to reduce the appearance of scars & to even out the surrounding texture and asymmetries.
