We’ve all seen what dermal fillers can do for smoothing wrinkles and plumping lips. But did you know that dermal fillers can do so much more? With the experience and skill of professionals, dermal fillers can be used to contour the shape of the face as well as treat other surprising cosmetic concerns.
The great advantage of dermal fillers is that they can address a multitude of issues without the need for surgery. With surgery comes anesthesia, risks, and recovery time. Fillers, on the other hand, offer excellent results without all the downsides of surgery. Further, dermal fillers can last months or even years between maintenance treatments, and appointments are quick and easy.
Dermal fillers are biocompatible compounds injected beneath the skin to add volume. As we mentioned, they can do more than just smooth lines and wrinkles. Here are some lesser-known uses for dermal fillers that utilize the benefits of nonsurgical injectable treatments to address several different types of cosmetic issues.
Believe it or not, fillers can actually be used to create a more defined jawline. Fillers result in a more subtle difference than surgery, but the effects will be noticeable and more natural-looking. Because fillers plump the skin, they can address age-related volume loss in the lower face. In addition, they can build out a weak chin to make the face appear slimmer or correct an uneven jawline. Fillers can also tighten sagging jowls, which in turn gives the jawline a more defined appearance.
Nonsurgical Nose Job
Another surprising use for dermal fillers is to enhance the nose. Fillers cannot decrease the size of the nose but can add volume to improve its shape. Fillers can help make a too-small nose more proportionate to the rest of the face. Similarly, for those who want to minimize a lump or lift the tip of the nose, volume can be added strategically to do so.
The eyes are often the most noticeable feature on the face, and they are often the main concern when it comes to cosmetic treatments. We know fillers can smooth wrinkles around the eyes and brows, but they can also improve the look of tired eyes, undereye bags, and the sunken appearance that can occur as a result of age or other damaging environmental factors. Some fillers actually can affect the color of dark undereye bags, improving the results in that way as well.
Fillers are an effective way to treat concave scars as they can add volume to the scar depression and smooth the skin. The improvement in the skin’s texture that can be achieved often visibly reduces the appearance of acne scars as well as other types of scars.
As we age, fat becomes distributed in the body differently, and along with sun damage and a decrease in the production of collagen, this can result in significant volume loss in the hands. The skin on the hands can appear thin, saggy, and wrinkled. Using dermal fillers in the hands can reverse these signs of aging. Hand fillers can be used in combination with surface treatments such as lasers which can further smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of age spots.
