Where can dermal fillers be used? Dermal fillers are adopted for a wide range of uses from the obvious to superficial fine lines to deep facial contouring. It is always important to attend an initial skin consultation before having the treatment so you can fully discuss your needs. Dermal Fillers for the tear trough These are the lines under your eyes that make your eyes look tired, and can appear as under eye dark circles. A loss of volume in the under eye area, a loss of tissue elasticity or a mild reduction in bone density could all be causes. By using an advanced technique, dermal fillers can be placed in either the tear trough itself, slightly lower in the cheek area, or indeed a combination of both to achieve brighter, more rejuvenated eyes. Under the eye, you can get hollowing which in turns gives dark under circles under the eye. Dermal fillers can fill this hollowing.
Naso-labial folds Commonly known as the smile lines, these are the two skin folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Dermal filler is perfect to fill out these folds, and partnered with cheek filler the face will appear much younger looking. Mouth corners Sometimes the corners of your mouth can droop down also as a result of ageing a gravity. Dermal filler can be placed below the corners of the mouth with a small amount directly into the corners of the lips. Marionette lines Marionette lines run between the corners of the lips down towards the chin and jaw giving a puppet-like effect. As we age, our facial bones become smaller resulting in lines like these appearing. Dermal filler is great for filling in these lines making them less prominent.
Cheeks As you age you lose an amount of subcutaneous fat which can result in a loss of volume and elasticity to the face. This in turn highlights hollow cheek bones, and the presence of excess skin resulting in sunken cheeks. This can cause someone to appear gaunt and tired-looking. Dermal fillers can be injected into this area to plump out the face with natural volume and a gentle lift. This is an advanced technique. Lips & vermillion border
Very commonly used. The lips can be injected with dermal filler either in the body of the lip to boost fullness or the border of the lips to increase definition. This treatment is ideal for correcting thin lips but can also help solve problems with a downward smile and the need to lengthen the mouth.
Chin augmentation This is a non-surgical chin augmentation which is achieved with dermal fillers. Fillers will help define your jaw line. Smoker’s lines These are the vertical lines above the lip that appear when you pout. They are mostly caused by regular lip movements but are also called smokers lines, because regular smoking means pressing the lips together. If your lines are deep enough then they can be drastically reduced with a small amount of injectable filler to achieve a smoother appearance.
Nose Dermal Fillers are injected into the nose to smooth out slight bumps in the bridge of the nose, or rectify a crooked line of the nose (particularly in profile view) and even cartilage irregularities at the tip of the nose. This is another advanced technique.
Hands Hands are a new use for fillers, patients have found that the use of the fillers in their face is great for concealing their real age, but then it is often their hands that give it away. Ageing hands lose volume and the skin appears thinner. Having filler injected into the skin on the back of the hands can make them appear plumper and less veiny. Skin Rejuvenation It is very important to understand that Fillers are primarily used for creating volume underneath the skin, whereas they do not necessarily have any clinical benefits to the skin itself in terms of skin rejuvenations. this is where platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment comes in very useful. Otherwise known as the ‘vampire facial’, this is a simple natural treatment that uses the platelets within our blood to stimulate and produce new collagen skin rejuvenation.
