Dermal fillers and where they treat

author: last updated:  

Dermal fillers are an incredibly popular treatment that is used to augment your facial features and soft tissue in the face, such as the cheeks and lips. With many people becoming curious about them, the chances of you or someone you may know that has considered having dermal fillers are high. If you’re still wondering what they treat, then look no further as we uncover all things dermal filler below. 

What are dermal fillers made of?

Dermal fillers are an injectable gel like substance that contain hyaluronic acid, for example, a naturally occurring sugar in the skin which the filler itself uses. This acid is essential to your skins bounce and firmness, which is why dermal fillers are so effective in volume. Because this sugar occurs naturally within the body, your skin will accept the dermal filler with ease and is very safe to use for enhancing soft tissues in the face because they are compatible with your skin, delivering effective results safely.

What areas do they treat?

The main reason why dermal fillers rose to popularity stems from it being flexible in how they can be utilised. Although they are commonly known to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face, they are able to do so much more.

Cheeks

If your face has lost its volume over the years within the cheek area, dermal fillers can be used to solely target the cheeks in order to give them volume and add definition to the cheeks.

Nose

If your nose currently makes you unhappy and you want to do something about it but avoid surgery, dermal fillers can provide you with a solution as they are simply injected into the nose to smooth out slight bumps in the bridge of your nose or to even rectify crooked lines of the nose.

Tear Troughs

Fillers can add volume to the tear troughs and reduce lines on the forehead, as well as lines lower on the face, such as marionette lines which run from the corners of your mouth to your chin, or nasolabial lines which run from the nose to the mouth.

Lips

One of the most well-known uses of the filler, the lips are injected with dermal filler either in the body of the lip or to boost the plumpness or the border of the lips to increase definition.

Earlobes

The issue we have when we age is that we tend to lose elasticity and collagen in our skin which causes sagging, and this doesn’t occur just on the face. Earlobes can show signs of severe ageing too and can become droopy and wrinkly and dermal fillers offer a fast and efficient fix for this as they target the wrinkles and sagging skin ensuring that your earlobes are much nicer on the eye.
