Sure, you’ve heard of dermal fillers and other injectable cosmetic treatments, but have you ever wondered what they can really do? If you’re like most people, you may just think about plumper lips or smoother crow’s feet. But did you know that fillers can be used for so much more?
A Quick Overview of Injectables
Before we delve into all of the uses of different treatments, let’s quickly review what they are and how they work. Fillers are injectable compounds, often made of hyaluronic acid or other biocompatible materials, that can be used to restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial features. Neuromodulators use a different type of compound that deactivates the muscles, smoothing existing lines and preventing future wrinkles. These minimally invasive treatments require little to no downtime and are a popular alternative to more invasive surgical cosmetic procedures.
Chin and Jawline Enhancement
A strong, well-defined chin and jawline can dramatically improve your facial profile and overall appearance. Fillers can be used to create a more balanced and symmetrical appearance by adding volume to a weak or receding chin and creating a more chiseled jawline. This can be a great alternative to chin implants or jaw surgery for those looking to improve their facial structure without going under the knife.
Who says fillers are just for the face? As we age, our hands can begin to show signs of aging, too, with thinning skin, visible veins, and a bony appearance. Fillers can be used to restore volume to the hands, making them look younger. By injecting filler into the top of the hands, we can reduce the appearance of veins, tendons, and bones, giving you back that smooth, youthful look you once had.
Cheek Fillers for a Youthful Lift
As we age, our cheeks can lose volume and begin to sag, resulting in a tired, aged appearance. Cheek fillers are precisely formulated to help contour your features, giving you a natural-looking lift without the need for a facelift. By injecting filler into the midface area, practitioners can create more defined cheekbones and lift the lower face, resulting in a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Erase Smile and Laugh Lines
We know you have a gorgeous smile! But smile and laugh lines happen, and you may not want those sticking around. Multiple filler options are available to treat these types of lines and wrinkles. Which one is best for you may depend on the severity of your lines and your personal goals.
Flip Your Lips
Looking for a subtle way to enhance your lips without going overboard? Fillers are well known for being able to create a plumped pout. But fillers can do even more to enhance your lips. Instead of injecting filler directly into the lips, practitioners inject a small amount of filler just above the upper lip. This can also give you a fuller, more defined pout without adding significant volume. We can also use fillers to smooth lines around the lips or create more definition.
Smooth Frown Lines
So far, we’ve talked about fillers. But Dysport is a neuromodulator that smooths lines and wrinkles on the forehead (among other areas). It is a synthetic (and safe) version of a naturally occurring toxin. Dysport works by relaxing the muscles that cause a furrowed brow. Not only does Dysport smooth existing lines and wrinkles, but it can help prevent them from getting worse or from forming at all!
Have you ever caught yourself lifting your face in the mirror, wondering what you’d look like with a facelift? With injectable treatments, you can achieve amazing results without the need for surgery. By strategically injecting fillers, neuromodulators, or a mixture of both into various areas of the face, we can lift, tighten, and smooth the skin, giving you a more youthful, refreshed appearance. This “liquid facelift” is a great option for those who want to avoid the risks and downtime associated with traditional facelift surgery.
