5 Things You Didn’t Know Dermal Fillers Could Do

Being a non-surgical treatment for scars, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, dermal fillers have become quite popular. They effectively provide an elevated skin texture and appearance to boost confidence.  

Here we will know about dermal fillers, how it was traditionally used and five new advanced techniques that provide outstanding results. 

Know About Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers such as Restylane filler are clinically approved substances injected into the skin’s soft tissue. These face fillers injections aim to smooth, plump and reduce facial issues such as fine lines and wrinkles.

These fillers mostly contain substances already found in the body to make them effective and safe. Hyaluronic acid is the most commonly used substance in fillers. 

Traditional Uses of Dermal Fillers

Traditionally dermal fillers such as Restylane fillers enhance neck and face areas. They can be used to plump the lips or remove the crepe lines around the mouth. Heavy nasolabial folds can also be softened using fillers.

Furthermore, these can increase the volume around the cheek, chin and other regions. Thus, the main focus of injectable fillers is to get a soft, smooth and youthful facial area. 

Benefits of Face Fillers

The dermal fillers are made up of both natural and synthetic materials. Therefore what goes into your body and its result generally depends on what kind of filler you choose.

However, no matter what type of fillers you use, if administered by a trained professional, the results will be fresh and youthful with no sign of ageing. 

One of the top benefits of injectable fillers is that it instantaneously plumps the skin and smoothen the crease to provide immediate results. They tend to address the fine lines around the neck and treat nasolabial lines, also commonly referred to as smile lines. 

The benefit of getting filler is that they are a non-invasive treatment option which can be performed on an outpatient basis. The recovery time is also very short; patients generally return to their everyday activities immediately.

However, intense physical activities can be continued after 24 to 48 hours which is also quicker compared to other surgical treatments. Though it takes a few weeks for fillers to settle, the result is visible immediately. The type of filler you get determines its longevity; it can last a few months or years. 

Unique Uses of Dermal Fillers

Generally, dermal fillers such as Restylane fillers are used to fight off the sign of ageing. However, these fillers also have some other uses that most people are unaware of. Here are 

some of the unique ways that dermal fillers are useful:

  • Treats Scarring

Scars can be due to various reasons; it can be due to some injuries or acne. These tend to be unsightly and make some people too conscious about their looks. However, some injectable fillers are known to recontour the areas and provide smooth and scar-free skin. 

  • Rejuvenate Hands

As one ages, it is easily visible on the face, but other parts also lose volume, such as the hand. Dermal fillers are beneficial for reducing the ageing of the hands. They restore the volume and camouflage veins and tendons to make the hand look smooth and younger.

  • Smooth Earlobe Folds. 

With ageing, collagen production reduces, leading to sagging of the skin, including on the earlobe. Here also, dermal flyers can be used to reap its benefits. They tend to add volume to the plump sagging area and restore the appearance. 

  • Address Lipoatrophy 

Lipoatrophy is a medical condition in which the body’s storage and usage of fat are impacted. It is generally caused by using some drugs to treat HIV. It results in the loss of the face and other body parts. Thus fillers are used to restore the volume of the face.

  • Effective for Undereye Bags

Though it seems useless to use dermal fillers for reducing puffiness under the eyes, the results are incredible. It helps to plump the hollows to make eye bags stand out. Thus you can get a smooth and youthful appearance. 

These are some of the creative ways in which dermal fillers are used to enhance the facial areas but also other parts of the body. 

Know If You Fit For Face Fillers

The non-surgical dermal fillers are an incredible option for anyone experiencing ageing signs such as fine lines, wrinkles, plumping areas, creases, and volume loss. Thus if you want to get rejuvenated skin but are looking for a non-invasive option, go for dermal fillers. 

Difference Between Dermal Fillers and Neurotoxins

Many confuse dermal fillers with botox. However, they tend to differ a lot. Botox is a neurotoxin which minimises muscle movement to soften fine lines and wrinkles. On the other hand, fillers are designed to plump and fill in the wrinkles to make the skin smooth. 

Both these treatment options are available to fight the signs of ageing. Therefore if you appear older than you feel, you should visit an experienced dermatologist or your healthcare provider. Dermal fillers are extremely safe treatment options. However, it should be performed by a trained professional for great results.
