Dermal fillers are one of the most sought-out treatments in medical aesthetics because they do not require recovery time and provide immediate, effective results. If you have wrinkles, dermal injections can fill them in. If you want plumper lips or a more pronounced chin, dermal fillers can do that, too!
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like compounds – usually hyaluronic acid or collagen, which occur in the skin naturally – injected beneath the skin to plump it up. They make the treated region look smoother, fuller or both.
How Safe Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are medical devices; as such, they are subject to FDA regulation and are very safe. Adults over the age of 22 can use them. FDA-approved applications for dermal fillers include:
- Addressing mild to severe skin folds and wrinkles on the face
- Volumizing lips, chin, cheeks, jawline, under-eye hollows and back of the hand
- Restoring facial fat in people who are very thin from illness
- Correcting cheek acne scarring
Most FDA-approved dermal fillers have transient effects because they contain ingredients the body breaks down and absorbs. Therefore, repeated injections are required to maintain the desired result.
Which Parts of the Face Are the Most Commonly Treated with Dermal Fillers?
Cheeks: Cheeks lose volume with age, especially for runners and athletes of high-impact sports. Many prefer dermal fillers over Botox® because they can restore cheek volume and vitality without the “face-freezing” effects.
Lips: This is perhaps the most popular application of dermal fillers today. Full lips are seen as sensual and desirable. Despite a common connotation with overfilling, lip fillers can be adjusted to enhance the natural curve of the lips, fill in wrinkles and create symmetry. They can fill thinning lips with fine lines, just enough to make them look bigger but natural and smooth.
Chin: Dermal fillers can reshape the chin without the need for surgery. It is popular among those who dislike their side profile and want a more balanced face. In addition, chin fillers can provide a younger-looking jawline.
Jawline: Dermal fillers can improve your side profile and lessen the appearance of a sagging neck when used along the jawline.
Nose: Dermal fillers are a fantastic, non-invasive alternative to rhinoplasty.
Earlobes: The earlobes may sag and get wrinkled with time. As they do, piercing holes may grow. Dermal fillers can plump earlobes, smooth out wrinkles and tighten earing holes so that jewelry fits better.
