Facial filler (sometimes called dermal filler) is a substance that can be injected into your skin. It is a powerful tool that can be used to combat visible signs of age and smooth out the appearance of your face.
What Can Facial Fillers Fix?
Dermal filler is primarily used to physically plump out an area on your face. In other words, it is best used to reduce the appearance wrinkles and contours that have lost volume such as nasal folds, temples, tear troughs and cheeks.
One common use of facial filler is to modify the appearance of smile lines. The creases that run between your nose and your mouth can be smoothed out with the careful application of dermal filler.
Filler can also be used to plump out cheeks and lips to restore a more youthful appearance. Shaping these features to appear more full and smooth can have a huge impact on your face. Finally, facial fillers can help reduce eye bags and pitted acne scars.
Who Is A Candidate For Facial Filler?
Facial fillers are semi-permanent and quite safe. This makes them a great way for almost anyone to smooth out their face and reduce the appearance of aging skin. If you are on the fence, you can simply choose a shorter lasting filler that will naturally be broken down by your body over the course of three to six months or so. In other words, you can try out dermal fillers for a few months before you commit fully.
Longer lasting synthetic fillers are more permanent. These fillers will stay in your face for a longer period of time. If you correct an issue with a long-lasting filler, it may reappear, but that is usually just because your skin continues to age. These fillers are great for people with facial scarring, or other issues that will continue to be a problem for a long time.
A Simple Treatment For Difficult Problems
If you would like to add a bit of youthful volume to your facial features or smooth out deep wrinkles, or acne scars, facial filler is a great choice. This safe, simple treatment can produce the results you want in an incredibly short amount of time. Best of all, with multiple types of filler available, you can choose how long you want your treatment to last.
