Fillers are basically the volume-adding biocompatible particles, mainly composed of hyaluronic acid. They are used to improve static wrinkles and folds, like nasolabial folds, glabellar lines, neck folds, accordion lines (smile lines). They even help to increase volume in lip augmentation (enhancement or development), lip wrinkles, cheek augmentation and eye circles and work for the rejuvenation of hands and neck parts; and, at times, they work for the improvement of deformed features, like asymmetry of nose or scar correction. Very fine needles are used to reduce pain sensations and to inject the filler particles to add volume to the desired parts. Nowadays, blunt canulas are also used which cut down the pain significantly. For more sensitive clients, nerve blocks can be given to reduce the painful sensations.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.
The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.
Dermal fillers can be used to:
- Plump Thin Lips
- Nasolabial Folds
- Lip Augmentation
- Cheek Augmentation
- Chin Augmentation
- Tear Trough
- Enhance shallow contours
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.
