Also known as dermal fillers and soft tissue fillers
Fillers are a type of injectable aesthetic product used to add volume, alter the contours of the face, and fill in wrinkles. A common area to inject fillers is in the cheeks, to provide structure and firmness to the subcutaneous tissue that has been lost due to causes that are both intrinsic (genetic & inherited aging process) and extrinsic (external like smoking and sun exposure), reproducing the cheekbones that have become less pronounced with aging.
It can also be used to inject areas such as the lips to help fill in the vertical lines and thinning of the lips that have been reduced in the aging process. Fillers can help with softening the Nasolabial folds (which are the lines on both sides of the mouth that are more pronounced with smiling) and volumizing the areas of the face that have lost fat and bone as a result of the aging process like the corners of the mouth and the lines coming from the corners of the mouth to the lower chin. It can help reform the jawbone facial structure and thinning hands, resulting in a fuller, smoother and more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are among the most popular aesthetic procedures because they carry almost immediate results, minimal risks and little "down" time.
When to Consider Fillers
- If you have deep lines around the lower face, or notice a "sagging" appearance or pulling of the facial skin by gravity
- If you would like to change the contours of your jaw or lips
- If you are interested in a low risk procedure with minimal downtime and mildly invasive with almost instantaneous results
