What are dermal facial 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:

Facial Fillers Plump Up the Volume*

Dermal fillers have shown winning results in restoring youthful fullness to lips, smile lines (naso-labial folds) and marionette lines (the “parentheses” around the mouth).

“With the array of fillers we have available today, treatment can be customized for each patient,” says Dr. Jochen. “The choice of filler varies with the treatment site and the individual patient,” he adds, noting that some dermal fillers can last up to one to two years, and can actually stimulate the formation of new collagen, further enhancing their effect over time.

Dr. Jochen also notes that there is little to no downtime with dermal fillers. “There may be a little swelling or redness immediately following the injection, but it’s usually gone within a few hours,” he says. “And the improvement is immediate.”

Dermal Fillers Are Not Just for the Face

Hands

The backs of our hands can appear wrinkled, bony or prominently veined as we grow older and the skin thins – giving away our age even if we’ve undergone facial rejuvenation. The right filler, however, can plump up this thinning skin and give you hands to match a youthful-looking face.

Earlobes

Even earlobes can reveal the passage of time as they become creased, stretched and saggy from wearing earrings. Injectible dermal fillers can restore this lost fullness.

Acne Scars

Dermal fillers can soften the appearance of acne scars and other surface depressions.

Nose Remodeling

A crooked nose can be “straightened” without surgery with the appropriate placement of a filler.

Under-eye Circles or Hollows

By plumping up the under-eye area that has lost volume, fillers can eliminate that chronic tired look.

Cheeks and Cheekbones

Fillers can round out and raise the cheeks, restoring a look of youthful contour and high cheekbones.

Options for Relaxing Wrinkles

Botox® and Dysport® can make crow’s feet fly away and soften brow furrows and forehead wrinkles to give you a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.
