Dermal fillers are popular cosmetic treatments because they are minimally invasive, relatively low risk and don’t involve extensive downtime. They are also versatile and can be used to address several aging and skin concerns. Read on as Mr Miles Banwell of Attune Clinic discusses some of the cosmetic issues he corrects with dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers work by adding volume to the tissues below the facial skin, making them the ideal solution for plumping facial areas that have become hollow or sunken over time. Certain dermal fillers, like Juvederm, are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that binds to the water molecules in the skin and boosts fullness. Other fillers, like Sculptra, are known as collagen boosters as they not only add volume but also trigger the body’s collagen regeneration process for long-lasting rejuvenation.
Dermal fillers are commonly used to add volume to the cheeks and deep tear troughs.
Wrinkles and Fine Lines
A byproduct of adding volume to the facial tissues with dermal fillers is the “filling in” of wrinkles and fine lines on the overlying skin. The consistency of the gel that makes up the dermal filler products is smooth in nature, so the products leave the skin looking soft and wrinkle-free. Depending on the specific product, dermal fillers can be used to smooth out frown lines, nasolabial folds, crow’s feet, laugh lines and much more.
The appearance of depressed or sunken scars, including those resulting from acne, can be improved with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers add volume to the scars, raising them to the level of the surrounding skin for a more discreet and natural-looking appearance.
Thin or Aged Lips
Dermal fillers have become quite a popular option in recent years for lip augmentation. Not only do dermal fillers add volume to naturally thin lips, they also smooth out the wrinkles on and around the lips, for a youthful look.
