Dermal Filler Uses
Dermal Fillers for Under The Eyes
Soft hyaluronic acid under-eye dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are not only effective in treating under-eye hollows and deep tear troughs, they can also camouflage slight to moderate cases of under eye bags. The procedure can be done in minutes, with no downtime, and minimal to no bruising. A further benefit of using Restylane or Juvederm is that these fillers may also last longer.
Dermal Fillers for Acne Scars
Dermal fillers such as Belotero, Restylane, and Juvederm show great results and improve the appearance of acne scars by lifting and softening the scars, eventually blending them with your normal skin. They are used to restore volume to the face where skin tissues have degenerated with age to form wrinkles and fine lines. The effect is temporary, with results lasting between a few months and a year.
Dermal Fillers for Lips
These days, an injectable dermal filler is the most commonly used method of lip augmentation (Collagen, once the most common dermal filler, is used less often today). There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected into your lips and around your mouth. But the most common fillers today are products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body which helps increase volume in your lips.
Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:
The effects typically last around six months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips.
Dermal Fillers for Buttocks
Of all the fillers available, Sculptra is the one that’s best suited for the non-surgical butt-lift. Rather than using hyaluronic acid fillers, which basically just pump more volume into your skin, a plastic surgeon will inject Sculptra into and above the muscle of your buttocks. This triggers an inflammatory response in your body, inducing your own collagen to grow around the product, creating a combination of scar tissue and fresh collagen, which gives a good and natural augmentation of the buttocks.
Dermal Fillers for The Nose
Dermal fillers for the nose or a non-surgical nose job entail the injecting of soft tissue filler such as Juvederm. A surgeon can correct small defects, curves, bumps, lumps, and even form a bridge on the nose. However, a large nose cannot be reduced in size, although a skilled doctor may make the nose appear smaller.
The procedure takes a few minutes and results last about a year.
Dermal Fillers for Cheeks
Often the cornerstone of facial rejuvenation, cheek enhancement with dermal fillers will provide an instant lift to the face and will improve facial proportions. Cheek enhancement is performed to improve the appearance of cheeks that have become sunken or hollow or have begun to sag with age. The treatment can also highlight the cheekbones. It is the most common way to replace lost volume.
Cheek enhancement is performed using injectable fillers to temporarily improve the volume of the cheeks, increasing definition and fullness.
Dermal Fillers for The Chin
A chin augmentation treatment can be performed with dermal fillers to change the contours of the chin. These fillers add volume under the skin, subtly changing or improving the chin’s symmetry and visual balance. For instance, it can make the chin appear more chiseled – a common request from male patients. Or adversely, it can create softer contours – often requested by women.
