Dermal fillers are popular for several reasons. Unlike surgical facial rejuvenation procedures like facelift and eyelid surgery, fillers can be administered in a quick and easy in-office procedure. They also don’t require incisions or anesthesia, and therefore have fewer associated risks than surgical procedures. Side effects and downtime are minimal with fillers; patients can enjoy a younger-looking appearance almost immediately after treatment.
Versatile in use, dermal fillers can address various signs of aging on the face. If you have more than one facial aging concern, dermal fillers may be right for you. Here, our SILK Medical Spa team breaks down the different uses of dermal fillers.
Eliminate Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are popular for softening the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. By adding volume to the skin, fillers can “fill in” noticeable lines to create a smoother and younger appearance. They can be used to treat the following:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Laugh lines
Restore Lost Facial Volume
Over time, the facial skin loses volume, causing certain facial features to appear sunken or hollow. Hyaluronic acid based fillers like Juvederm Voluma add volume to the facial features and deliver moisture to the skin, which in turn causes the face to appear fuller and more youthful. Depending on the specific product, fillers can be used to correct the following:
- Sunken cheeks
- Creases on cheeks
- Hollow eyes
- Deep tear troughs
Fill in Scars
Depressed or sunken scars, such as those from acne, can be evened out with dermal fillers. Fillers add volume to the scars, raising them to the level of the surrounding skin. This results in a smoother and more natural-looking appearance.
Add Volume to the Lips
Plumping up naturally thin or aged lips is an increasingly popular use for dermal fillers. Because fillers can be used to soften the lines and creases around the mouth, you can achieve a fuller and smoother pout that looks natural-looking and matches the surrounding youthful skin.
