Over time, the body’s collagen production slows down. This substance is responsible for making the skin plump and smooth (among other things, such as speeding up wound healing and providing joint support).
So, as people grow older, they tend to lose that youthful plumpness and volume, especially around the face. This can lead to sunken cheeks, under eye hollows, thinning lips, and marionette lines, which appear around the mouth.
Dermal filler treatments are a safe and effective way to address these concerns. Like neurotoxins, they’re used primarily for facial rejuvenation, but the effects of dermal fillers differ because they’re more for boosting or restoring volume where needed.
Furthermore, the effects of dermal fillers are especially versatile when it comes to where you can have them injected. Let’s take a look:
Full Facial Rejuvenation: Where You Can Get Filler Treatments Injected
Hyaluronic acid is perhaps the most popular filler ingredient as it’s easy to dissolve and has a multitude of applications, such as the following:
Plump cheeks are a hallmark of youth, and the right amount of filler can restore volume to sagging cheeks – or create the illusion of prominent cheekbones too.
Dermal fillers increase or restore volume to the areas above and around your cheekbones, thus giving you the look of a more defined bone structure. They can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles in the area as well.
Some people are born with full, pouty lips. Some look like they were, with a little help from fillers.
Lip fillers are arguably the most popular dermal filler, and with good reason. In the hands of the right injector, anyone can get the perfect pair of lips. Dermal fillers can add just the right volume to the upper and lower lips, help correct asymmetry, smooth out lip lines and wrinkles, bring out the natural shape of your Cupid’s bow, and lift the corners of your mouth.
Thus, getting lip fillers is one of the fastest ways to refresh or enhance your look.
As we lose volume in the face, static wrinkles can appear. Marionette lines and nasolabial folds are an example of such, and they tend to appear even while the face is at rest.
A bit of dermal filler can fill in these areas, plumping up the skin and smoothing out the static wrinkles for a more youthful, plump yet still natural-looking appearance.
As with neurotoxins, the effects of dermal fillers last long but aren’t permanent. Most patients need to come back for touch-ups every three months or so to maintain their desired results.
And to get the best, most consistent results, it’s always advisable to seek a certified and experienced injector.
