Well, this is our guide to everything you should know about the advantages of facial contouring with dermal filler.
What does facial contouring mean?
Facial contouring is a technique used by aesthetic practitioners and professionals, such as ourselves here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic. This technique combines different dermal filler procedures to create a natural reshaping and contouring of the face.
What are the advantages of facial contouring with dermal filler?
There are a number of advantages and benefits to using dermal fillers as a facial contouring option. These advantages include:
- Dermal fillers are a non surgical procedure – any facial restructuring or shaping was once the remit of surgery only. This would be costly, invasive and require a significant portion of down time or recovery time to allow the facial tissue to heal. In contrast, dermal fillers are simply injections of hyaluronic acid, administered in usually less than two hours. While these may swell and bruise initially, there is no recovery time required, and you can carry on with the rest of your daily plans.
- Dermal fillers target key areas – injections of dermal filler can be used to target key and specific areas of the face that are often the main focal and structural points. With this procedure, the nose, cheeks, chin and jawline can all be restructured, with added volume, to provide full face contouring in a natural and subtle way, for stunning results. For dermal fillers in these areas, precision is essential. While the volume needs to be added, too much volume can create an uneven, unbalanced look, or even need removing altogether. This, along with safety and hygiene reasons, is why you should only trust a licensed professional for any dermal filler treatments.
- Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring – dermal fillers involve injections of hyaluronic acid. But this isn’t just any chemical substance, it is actually one that is found throughout the human body, and is particularly concentrated within the skin. As a natural part of the ageing process, this hyaluronic acid is lost, as the body depletes stores and production slows down. This is what causes the break down of collagen and elastin, leading to sagging and hollow skin, as well as lines and wrinkles. As a result, replacing this hyaluronic acid through dermal filler injections, provides your skin with a much needed nutrient that can help your skin be healthy. It also replaces any lost volume, allowing the shape and contours of the face to be adjusted in a natural way.
