What can Dermal Fillers be used for?
In the world of anti-ageing treatments, there’s one we’re wowed by time and time again – dermal fillers. It’s incredible how innovative this treatment is, and results can be truly transformational. Here at our Inverness skin clinic, our skin doctors often carry out dermal filler treatment, but not always for the same reasons. In this post, we’ll talk through possible uses for this type of filler and why it may be of benefit to you.
1. Sculpting & shaping
One of the most well-known uses for dermal fillers in their ability to sculpt and shape the skin – otherwise known as contouring. This is because dermal fillers have a plumping effect, so can boost volume in areas of the face, which can then create a contrast point to another area. For example, those with a square-shaped forehead may ask for dermal filler to be placed along the jaw to help balance the face.
2. Creating volume
Over the years, our skin starts to slacken, which can lead to a sagging, aged appearance. Dermal fillers can be used strategically to lift and plump the face and add volume to areas including the lips.
3. Non-surgical treatments
As well as the non-surgical facelift outlined above, dermal fillers can be used for non-surgical nose jobs. The injections can help ‘streamline’ the appearance of the nose, reduce humps or bumps, and create a more refined, balanced silhouette
4. Lines & wrinkles
Perhaps the most well-known use of dermal fillers, clever injections can help ‘fill’ deep lines and wrinkles, particularly around the nose and mouth. The hyaluronic acid inside the fillers also helps create smooth, hydrated skin.
