Dermal fillers are one of the most popular aesthetic treatment options available. And these can be used to target a range of facial areas including the cheeks, lips, jaw and nose. In fact, dermal fillers can even be used for the forehead. But what are forehead fillers? And what are the benefits of these? Well, as Preston’s leading aesthetic practitioners, here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic,we provide a wide range of aesthetic treatments and procedures. This includes dermal fillers.
What are forehead fillers?
Forehead fillers are injections of dermal filler into very precise areas of the forehead. These dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found throughout the body, but in high concentrations within the skin. As a natural part of the ageing process, these natural stores of hyaluronic acid are depleted, which can contribute to a lack of volume and skin hydration. As a result, when dermal fillers are injected they can replace this lost volume and bring valuable hydration to your skin.
What are the advantages of forehead fillers?
There are a number of advantages and benefits to choosing forehead fillers. These include:
- Improving the shape of the forehead
- Reducing the appearance of static lines and wrinkles
- Facial symmetry
Injecting dermal fillers to improve the shape of the forehead
By injecting dermal fillers into the forehead it is possible to increase the forehead projection and improve the appearance of a more rotruded forehead. This is because the dermal fillers can increase the volume of the skin in the forehead area, and a professional aesthetic practitioner can then use fillers to reshape the forehead and add volume in just the right places. The filler injections will be positioned in line with the overall shape and structure of the face for natural, subtle results.
Injecting dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of static lines and wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles that are expression lines appear when certain facial expressions are formed. These lines cannot be targeted effectively with dermal fillers because they are constantly moving. However, static lines and wrinkles can form over time, and to reduce the appearance of these, very small amounts of dermal filler can be used to fill the hollow underneath the line. This is also effective for smoothing out the appearance of the forehead overall, by bringing all areas to the same level.
Forehead fillers can be used to improve facial symmetry
Another advantage of forehead fillers is the application to improve facial symmetry. From scar tissue to accidents and injuries, the forehead can have an asymmetrical appearance. Dermal fillers can be used to add volume very specifically to particular areas, which can help balance areas of imperfection and help to create a more symmetrical forehead.
What are the considerations for forehead fillers?
There are a number of considerations to bear in mind in relation to forehead fillers. These considerations include:
- Choosing a professional team – it is essential to choose a professional, qualified and registered aesthetic practitioner for any dermal filler treatment. Not only can this ensure the best possible results in line with your overall facial structure, but a professional will also be able to implement dermal fillers safely. This means that the risk of the procedure is dramatically reduced and you wont need to worry about future complications.
- Side effects – there are always some side effects associated with dermal filler injections including redness and bruising. However, these should clear up within 1 to 2 weeks.
