From Botox injections, to chemical peels, there are a variety of different treatment options available to help reduce the visible signs of aging. Dermal fillers are another, very effective option. And these can be applied to different parts of the face, to achieve a range of results that will help you look younger, and feel great. Here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we are Preston’s leading dermal filler experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to dermal fillers for different facial features.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are an injectable anti-aging treatment that can add volume to your skin. This helps to create a younger looking appearance. Dermal filler treatment works by injecting a filler material directly into your soft tissue, in problem areas around the face. This material could be collagen, or an acid or peptide. The procedure is very safe, and the possible side effects are minimal.
So, dermal fillers provide volume to different area of the face, when injected directly into the soft tissue. As a result, dermal fillers can be used for a range of purposes, including:
- reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- tear trough enhancements
- lip enhancements
- cheek enhancements
- jaw enhancements
Fine lines and wrinkles
For fine lines and wrinkles formed by facial expressions, dermal fillers can be very helpful. Using a more flexible filler, that will move with the shape and movements of your face, fine lines can be eradicated. The dermal filler is simply injected into the line or wrinkle, and this fills up the hollow, or space underneath the wrinkle line itself. As a result, this is a very effective anti-aging treatment.
Tear trough enhancements
A hollow under the eye can create a shadow that is perceived as a dark circle, making you look more tired than you really are. This also creates a division between the lower eyelid and cheek, and this is one of the several early signs of aging. Tear trough fillers can be used to add volume to this space, making you look younger, and feel more confident.
Dermal fillers can be used to enhance the appearance of the lips by adding volume for a more plump look. This can help combat the natural thinning of the lips that occurs as we age, but it’s also a popular way to increase self confidence and facial symmetry too.
Cheek enhancements can actually lift the tissue of the cheek. This can help to add contour to the face, as well as volume, providing a subtle change to the structure of your face. This change will also help you to look younger.
Similar to cheek enhancements, jaw enhancements lift the tissue of the jaw to add definition and to change the shape of the face. As we age, jaw tissue can begin to lose condition and elasticity, so a jaw enhancement can help to make you look younger, while also rejuvenating your skin.
