The Face’s Best Friend – Dermal Fillers

Lines and wrinkles are the unfortunate by-products of aging. But just because you may see them crop up on your face doesn’t mean you have to live with them. Facial fillers, also known as dermal fillers, can be used to plump up lines and wrinkles and restore a more youthful look with next to no downtime. So, if you’re curious about dermal fillers and how they can end up being your best friend, here’s everything to know about how they work.


Not All Fillers Are the Same

In the world of facial fillers, there are different types of dermal fillers composed of other materials and varying weights. Although hyaluronic acid fillers are the most popular type of filler to use because of their immediate effects and reversible results, there are also biostimulatory fillers that prompt the body to create new collagen.


Treatment Areas

The nice thing about facial fillers is that different ones have unique benefits. For example, biostimulatory fillers create new collagen, which can give long-lasting improvement in deeper wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid fillers are temporary and provide instant improvement depending on where they’re injected. Similarly, different fillers work uniquely in each area of the face. The most popular injection sites include:

  • The lips
  • The cheeks
  • The chin
  • Temples
  • Nose
  • The jawline
  • Under the eyes
  • Nasolabial folds


Dramatic Results Without Incisions or Scars

If the idea of going under the knife and opting for plastic surgery makes you squeamish, you’ll find solace in the fact that facial fillers can accomplish a similar result without the downtime, scars, or nuances of cosmetic surgery. They are non-surgical and minimally invasive, allowing you to quickly improve what you want to fix without the risks and downtime associated with surgical procedures.

There’s also no risk of ending up with permanent results, especially if you don’t like them. While hyaluronic acid fillers are injectable, they also give the face a very natural result. The beauty of dermal fillers is that they offer subtle, natural-looking results, and a little bit of product can go a long way. With these, you’ll still look like yourself, just more refreshed without looking “done.” Plus, the gel-like consistency of facial fillers allows them to integrate into the skin for subtle enhancement.

They can also be used to harmonize the features and create balance. Taking a holistic approach to filler treatments can improve the balance and proportions of the face can be improved. Strategically placing fillers in areas requiring subtle enhancement, such as the cheeks, temples, or lips, can create a balanced appearance that looks natural.

Remember, the goal of using dermal fillers is to create subtle enhancement without overdoing it. Even if you want to erase the signs of aging, the effect should be to soften fine lines and restore volume. Appropriately filling in lines, wrinkles, and folds, adding lost volume, and lifting saggy features create a smoother, more youthful-looking face with a refreshed appearance without erasing any of your character.

Another benefit of facial fillers is that they help to restore a youthful plumpness to the face. By strategically injecting the appropriate type into specific areas, your provider can sculpt and lift your facial features for a more rejuvenated and younger-looking appearance. Depending on the type of filler used and the treatment area, you may reap the benefits of filler for six months to two years.


Customizable Solutions

No two faces are the same, which is why no two facial filler treatment plans should be. Patients appreciate that, unlike other treatments and procedures, facial fillers can be customized to your specific needs and want to help you achieve your desired results. Whether you want to enhance or define, facial fillers are easily tailored and injected to serve your facial anatomy and aesthetic goals best. The treatment is also quick, convenient, and painless (topical numbing cream is used to make the injections more tolerable) and can be broken into mini-treatment sessions if you prefer. The accessibility of facial fillers makes them an ideal choice for anyone who’s looking for immediate results without the commitment of a lengthy recovery period.

Before your facial filler treatment, we recommend a full consultation with a team member to discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns so that a customized approach to your treatment can be designed.


A Confidence Booster

Physical transformations can also have a profound mental and emotional impact on your life, and even something as simple as these can be a major self-esteem booster. The subtle yet significant improvements in your appearance will make you feel better about yourself. The confidence gained from the treatment can trickle down into other parts of your life and influence you in many different ways. A boost in self-esteem can foster a more positive outlook on life.
