DERMAL FILLERS PLUMP OUT WRINKLES AND SMOOTH THE FACE
Dermal filler injections can restore lost facial volume, fill out wrinkles and lines, and improve facial contours
The ‘youthful glow’ associated with being young and healthy is often put down to the fullness and smooth, plump contours evident in the upper, lower and mid-face regions. In seeking to restore this glow, practitioners often call on one or more of a variety of dermal fillers that can be injected under the skin to smooth and fill deep folds and lines.
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected into these areas to plump out wrinkles and smooth the face. They are also used to restore volume to the face where tissue has degenerated with age, or where lipoatrophy (fat loss caused by disease) has caused the cheeks to collapse. Fillers can also be used to fill in pockmarks and acne scars, contour or reshape facial features, add volume to lips and cheeks and as an adjunct to botulinum toxin injections for a cumulative and complementary result.
More permanent fillers can even be used to reshape the nose and jaw line to create a more balanced and harmonious face shape.
There is a multitude of different fillers on the market that range in longevity, composition and viscosity, which can be quite confusing for the average consumer. While a cosmetic doctor is the best person to advise on the most suitable filler for specific needs, prospective patients should educate themselves before the consultation. This will ensure they feel more comfortable and confident when it comes to discussing their options.
