Dermal fillers help to reduce facial wrinkles while also restoring volume and fullness to the face. Our faces naturally lose fat tissue as we age, this leads to facial muscles working closer to the skin’s surface. Smile lines and other facial lines then become more visible. With dermal fillers, this lost facial volume is restored, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Below are 5  facial areas that can be improved with dermal fillers:

Plump cheeks

As we age, the cheeks are one of the first areas to lose volume, leading to a more aged appearance. This loss of volume can be even more pronounced in runners and individuals who engage in high-impact activities. Fortunately, expertly administered dermal fillers offer a non-invasive solution to restore lost volume and rejuvenate the cheeks. Unlike some aesthetic treatments that can result in a “facial freezing” effect, dermal fillers provide a natural, youthful enhancement. This treatment not only revitalizes the face but also avoids the need for invasive procedures and the lengthy recovery times they entail. By choosing dermal fillers, one can achieve a more energetic and youthful look with minimal downtime, making it an ideal option for those seeking effective and convenient aesthetic improvements.

Add volume to your lips

Dermal fillers are an ideal solution for non-surgical lip augmentation, to provide volume and contour to the lips, dermal filler is injected directly into the lips. This treatment is ideal for lips that have thinned as a result of aging or for naturally thin lips that may need more volume. Despite a frequent association with overfilling, lip filler treatments can be easily customized to achieve a subtle enhancement to the natural shape of the lips. Dermal fillers can even help with the texture by filling in lines and creating symmetry. 

Fill in forehead lines

Compared to Botox, which temporarily paralyzes muscles to prevent the movement that causes forehead wrinkles, dermal fillers work differently by adding volume to minimize the appearance of static lines. While Botox targets dynamic wrinkles caused by facial expressions, dermal fillers address lines and wrinkles that are present even when the face is at rest. This versatility makes dermal fillers an excellent option for treating unwanted lines or wrinkles in almost any area of the face, not just the forehead. By restoring volume, dermal fillers provide a more youthful and refreshed appearance, offering a comprehensive solution for facial rejuvenation.

Shape the chin or nose

Dermal filler injections are a popular nonsurgical alternative for reshaping regions such as the chin, jawline, and nose. The jawbone degenerates and shrinks very slowly over time, resulting in a recessing of the chin area. Fillers can assist in reversing this effect by rebuilding the lost volume. For your nose, dermal filler is effective in correcting a bump or straightening a slightly crooked nose. The overall effect can help to enhance your side profile and hide a protruding nose. As a result, dermal fillers have been a great option compared to surgical treatments that targeted the same facial features. 

Reduce the appearance of scars

Scars can cause indents and uneven textures and are especially unwanted on any area of the face. Even though they may not be visible to others, facial scars can be a source of insecurity for those who have them. With dermal fillers, they can be used to reduce the appearance of scars and level out the texture of the surrounding skin. Dermal fillers offer a discreet and nonsurgical remedy for facial imperfections, commonly leading to an overall gain in self-confidence for those who choose this procedure. 

Dermal fillers can improve and remedy many features of the face. Dermal fillers can be a safer and more effective way to combat signs of aging and look younger when done by a professional.
