Dermal Fillers: Effective Solution for Volumizing and Facial Contouring

Our skin ages with us and loses its freshness, firmness, smoothness, and youthfulness because of collagen and elastin loss that occurs as we age. We may not be able to stop the aging process. Stopping or delaying aging signs is still in our hands with multiple cosmetic procedures like Dermal Fillers. Over time, it is common to lose volume in the lower areas of your face, like your cheeks, jaw, neck, etc. The skin on these areas becomes saggy and hollow-looking. We are compelled to accept aging as a natural phenomenon and cannot stop, but we can fight back the aging signs, such as fine lines and wrinkles, that are often thought to be inescapable. 

Contrary to common belief, Botox is not the only option for aging signs and wrinkles. It only treats dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines. Botox can do nothing about saggy skin and volume loss in any particular area of the face, neck, or hands. Thus, dermal fillers are a more effective alternative to surgical facelifts. These fillers are an injectable cosmetic procedure that adds volume and plumps up the skin to make it look smoother, firmer, and youthful. 

How Do Skin Sagginess Occur, and Why are Dermal Fillers Useful?

Saggy and droopy skin occurs when collagen and elastin production of our skin decreases over time. Collagen and elastin are two proteins that give structure to the skin and increase its elasticity. But as soon as we reach our mid-twenties, this production experiences a drastic decline and gives rise to fine lines, wrinkles, and skin sags. Once our skin loses its definition, its structure loses its firmness, and we can get sagging skin pockets in jowls, nasolabial forms, crow’s feet, and frown lines on the forehead. Dermal fillers can fill in the hollow and sunken areas in the face and help boost a person’s self-confidence from a social interaction standpoint. 

What Can Dermal Fillers Do For You?

Depending upon your skin condition, dermal fillers can ensure multiple benefits to you. These fillers address skin issues and concerns in different types and categories. Their common uses include:

Treatment for Facial Folds & Wrinkles

The modern-day aesthetic standard and beauty trends have compelled us to try and be our best possible versions. There are multiple types of fillers. Some are long-lasting, while others last up to some months. But one thing that is common among all is their effectiveness. The most commonly used dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid and collagen. Dermal fillers are injected directly into a wrinkle to lift and improve the wrinkles at the sides of the mouth, underneath the eyes, between the eyebrows, the necklines, and the fine lines above the lip. These fillers fill the space among the wrinkles, fine lines, or skin indentation. The results are almost instant. They are an excellent complement to Botox injections because they correct different types of wrinkles and don’t just freeze the muscles in a place as Botox does. For example, the combination with Botox dramatically improves the deep crease between the brows by stopping the movement, while dermal fillers fill the hollow spaces.

Restoring the Facial Volume to get Firmer-looking Skin 

Loss of facial volume means a de-structured face. This can be quite unappealing physically. The skin sags and jowls can age you 10x more than your actual age. With dermal fillers, we can simply wipe off the existence of aging signs and restore younger-looking and firmer skin. Depending upon the extent of your volume loss, these fillers also offer fat grafting in places that have visibly lost their fat content. These fillers can restore volume to the cheeks, temples, and jawline. Corrections can be done slowly for those seeking more subtle, gradual improvements to look natural since a dab goes a long way. A similar technique is also used for Lip Restoration & Augmentation to give lips a natural, fuller look. Another benefit of dermal fillers over surgical procedures is their ability to provide natural-looking results. 

Facial Reshaping

Some people do not have the facial shape they desire, and in many cases, this is somewhat treatable with cosmetic injectables like dermal fillers. You can get higher cheekbones, define your jawline, and also deal with a naturally occurring indentation in the chin. The hollows at the temples are often overlooked but can dramatically improve a very thin face to look healthy and youthful. Moreover, the procedure is only minimally invasive and thus does not cause intolerable pain or require extended downtime. 

Hand Rejuvenation

Our facial skin is not the only target of aging signs. Our hands show our age and are often neglected in the rejuvenation process. Injecting a filler can soften the bony and veiny appearance of the hand, leading to a more youthful appearance.
