Did you know that the most visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss? Over time, your facial tissues thin out, the fine lines and wrinkles become etched, and certain areas around your mouth become hollow. None of these symptoms screams a fresh, vibrant face. Luckily, there is a way to fix that. Dermal fillers help replace the lost volume, smooth out wrinkles, plump up lips and give you a more youthful appearance.
What are Injectable Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected underneath your skin. The primary goal is to replace the lost volume, soften the creases and lines, and enhance facial contours. It is a great, cost-effective and non-surgical way to improve your appearance. Dermal fillers come in a variety of different forms. The most commonly used fillers are Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA), Poly-L-lactic Acid, Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), and Autologous fat injections.
Uses of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers can enhance your look in a variety of different ways. Here are the seven most popular uses of dermal fillers:
- Luscious Lips
Some of us are born with fuller, plump lips that look simply stunning. However, most of us are not so lucky to be born with them and envy people who do. For some of us, our lips gradually thin with age. That is why more and more people turn towards lip fillers to add volume to their lips and enhance the shape.
Lip fillers are administered throughout a few treatments and have the potential to transform your look completely. When a lip filler is distributed over a series of treatment sessions, it slowly enhances the plumpness, allowing you to see a difference, preventing an over-plumped look gradually. This treatment will prevent you from getting a duck-shaped pout.
Ensure an experienced surgeon does these fillers to achieve the best results. Generally, the bottom lip requires more filler than the top lip. This technique generally gives you a more natural look. Hyaluronic acid and collagen fillers are the most popular options for fillers.
Both of these filters work wonders for your lips. However, hyaluronic acid also can be a humectant, giving you luscious and soft lips.
- Eliminate Laugh Lines
Happiness and laughter are great for your mental and physical health, although not so great for youthful looks. If you have lived a happy life, you will experience those pesky laugh lines. These lines are also referred to as marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and smile lines. These are an unavoidable part of aging, but they can be reversed.
Dermal fillers are injected into the creases around the mouth, plumping up the area and making laugh lines less visible. It instantly gives you a fresh look.
- Add Definition to the Jaw and Chin Area
A lot of people are unhappy with how their chin and jaw look. There are multiple reasons behind it; aging is the prime culprit responsible for sagging. Some individuals genetically have a weaker jawline or a small chin that looks disproportionate to the rest of the face. Dermal fillers help you achieve a strong chin and a jawline that makes your face look more attractive.
When dermal fillers are used on the chin, they help define the chin and jawline. It minimises the look of a weak chin and gives your face an overall structured look. Typically, the filler will be injected into your chin and the corners of the jaw. In some cases, the service provider might inject filler into your cheekbones to give you an added lift.
- Fade Away Acne Scarring
We all deal with acne at one point, and some of us have deep acne scars. As per research, nearly 40% of the people who deal with acne end up with deep scars.
If you have acne scarring, you know how difficult it is to clear them. If your scars are very rigid, dermal fillers can help you immensely. The fillers are injected beneath the faults, lifting the depressed scars giving your skin a smoother, brighter look. The injection needle targets the fibroblast cells, stimulating your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, giving you stunning results.
- A Solution for Tech Neck Lines
If you spend a lot of time looking down at your phone or laptop, you might be familiar with the lines around the neck called tech necklines. They are essentially the horizontal wrinkles that appear on the neck due to constantly bending your neck in a downwards position. In some cases, these lines also occur as a part of the natural aging process. The skin on the neck is fragile and more prone to wrinkling.
They instantly eliminate the tech neck look when injected into the neck, plumping up the lines and giving your neck a youthful appearance.
If you have vertical lines instead of horizontal ones, they can’t be treated with fillers and call for surgical treatment.
- Correct Hollowness Underneath the Eyes
Does the area underneath your eyes appear more hollow than usual? It is bound to happen with age as we lose collagen and elastin. It can be attributed to some individuals’ bone structure and genetics. This hollowness is also referred to as a tear trough.
As dermal fillers are supremely effective in restoring the lost volume, this is the best treatment option to achieve a fresh, less tired-looking face. You will see an immediate effect in just one session. Sometimes, multiple sessions are needed to achieve the best outcome. Fillers under the eyes can also correct dark circles, under-eye bags, fine lines and wrinkles underneath the eyes.
- Rejuvenate Aging Hands
The skin on your hands is relatively thin and more prone to aging. We expose our hands to all sorts of things daily. The combination of sun, water, dust and other environmental factors can make your hands look a lot older. It is common to experience a crepey appearance with age. Dermal fillers help restore the smoothness and firmness of the hands. As a result, the wrinkles, veins, tendons and bones become less prominent, and your hands look stunning.
