Dermal fillers , also referred to as soft tissue fillers, are injectable treatments used as an effective anti-aging tool. These procedures have been used for some time to smooth away fine lines and facial creases, particularly around the nose, mouth and jawline. As their popularity has increased, so has the variety of formulations, allowing physicians to use this relatively quick, easy treatment to achieve other aesthetic goals as well. Check out these four uses for dermal fillers you may have not heard of before.
Wrinkles are not the only sign of aging that occurs on your face. Diminished collagen levels can also lead to loss of facial volume in certain areas, particularly under the eyes. This effect can create a perpetually tired appearance that makes you look much older than you feel. Dermal fillers can be used under the eye to restore youthful fullness and eliminate that weary look. Upper lids may also be an appropriate place for filler solutions that can effectively add lift to a sagging brow line.
Full lips have become a coveted feature, thanks to celebrities like Angela Jolie and Scarlett Johansson. Even if you were born with a plump pout, lips can lose fullness and definition over time. Dermal fillers can help add fullness and definition to the lips, creating a sexier mouth. Those solutions are also effective in smoothing away fine lines that sometimes appear above the upper lip, often referred to as “smoker’s” lines.
The cheeks are another area where loss of facial volume can take their toll. That hollowed look in the mid-face can make you look older and even unhealthy. Restoring facial volume to the mid-face brings youthful fullness and definition back to the cheekbone, enhancing your entire facial profile with a few simple injections.
Over time, skin begins to lose its elasticity, leading to skin sagging and the appearance of jowls along the jawline. Before heading down the surgical route, mild to moderate skin sagging can often be effectively treated using dermal fillers. With injections placed in strategic locations along the jawline, you can restore a youthful facial profile and create definition between the neck and jawline.
