Dermal fillers offer a non-surgical alternative for the improvement of facial lines and wrinkles. These injectable gels can also be used to correct thinning lips and add volume to the lip tissue. Various forms of these gels exist, and their preferred use is based on the active ingredients, as well as the thickness and malleability of the gel itself.
We get a lot of questions about dermal fillers from our clients who are concerned about the appearance of lines and wrinkles. When we consult with our clients, we talk about the various filler injection treatments and customize a procedure to meet the needs of each individual.
For Volume Addition
Some individuals experience slight skin sagging on the cheeks, along the jawline, or to the right and left of the nose. These thin lines are often in areas where the skin is loose due to poor support from below the dermal layers. Additional volume in these areas can help smooth the surface. Hyaluronic acid fillers are most commonly used to address the problem of lost volume.
This acid attracts and binds with water molecules. Almost immediately after injection, the skin plumps a bit, but when the injection sites are properly chosen, the result is smoothness without any rippling or bumping. Acid-based dermal fillers generally provide positive results lasting for quite a while.
Enhancing the Lips
Thinning lips that look stretched and unbalanced can really detract from an individual’s appearance. The problem can be corrected with certain forms of acid-based dermal fillers. The injection sites can be in the center of the upper and lower lip or along the perimeter of the lip boundary. The lips become fuller, and a more natural swoop shape of the lip boundary is achieved.
A More Youthful Appearance
Although the various forms of dermal fillers work to correct a specific concern, they all have one thing in common. They create a more smooth skin surface and virtually eliminate the visibility of marionette lines and other lines and wrinkles. This is accomplished without surgery, and there’s no downtime after the treatment.
