5 Uses for Dermal Fillers You Didn't Know About

The outward signs of aging may be inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you have to stand by and accept what Mother Nature has in store for your aging skin and facial features. You have other plans in mind for looking as young as you feel.

Dr. Natalia Levinskaya and Dr. Vanessa Ali-Pennock can help you outsmart Mother Nature with dermal fillers. Not quite sure what dermal fillers are for? Read on to learn about five uses for dermal fillers you didn’t know about.

1. Lip lines don’t stand a chance

Thanks to the Kardashians, you’re probably aware that dermal fillers can plump up your lips. But did you know some dermal fillers work well to smooth out the vertical lines that form in and around your lips? It’s possible to have smoother lips and skin around your mouth either with or without a major plumping effect.

The Juvéderm® family of hyaluronic fillers contain hyaluronic acid — a substance that your body produces naturally, but less so as you age. Juvéderm offers several different options to fill in vertical lip lines so your lips and the surrounding skin appear smoother and more youthful.

If you want added volume, that’s possible, too, and our aesthetic experts tailor a treatment plan that meets your specific needs. That way, you get the results you desire, from as natural as possible to a more dramatic difference.

2. Improve the appearance of scars in a single visit

Acne scars, beware. Dermal fillers like Bellafill® can safely and instantly reduce the appearance of acne scars for up to a year in just one office visit.

Bellafill is a collagen-based dermal filler that contains tiny microspheres that stay in place under your skin and provide structural support for the injected collagen. Once your skin absorbs the initial collagen, new collagen begins to grow, so you get the benefit of immediate results plus a long-term improvement of the appearance of acne scar tissue.

3. Plump up your cheeks

Radiesse® works well on smoothing wrinkles, creases, and folds around your mouth and nose, but it also adds volume to your cheeks. Juvéderm also has a formula for adding subtle volume and lift to your cheeks so you reclaim a more youthful appearance.

As you age, your skin produces less collagen and elastin, causing your facial skin to sag, or sink inward. Dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Radiesse replenish lost volume from beneath the surface of your skin for long-lasting results. Our medical aesthetic experts can help you decide which option is best to help you achieve your desired look.

4. Dermal fillers are for men, too

When you think of getting rid of lines and wrinkles on your face, you may be thinking that only women use dermal fillers. However, that’s not the case. Men enjoy the immediate and long-term effects of dermal fillers, too.

Men don’t have to accept the outward signs of aging any more than women do. And because there are so many options, you can walk away looking as natural as you’d like, so nobody will even know you’ve had work done.

5. Fillers can help your hands

Dermal fillers are an excellent way to reduce wrinkles, lines, and creases. They are also a wonderful way to add volume to sagging facial skin. But did you know that fillers can help your hands look younger, too? When your aesthetic expert injects Radiesse into your hands, it stimulates new collagen growth, just as it does in your face. This is a great way to reverse the signs of aging in your hands.

For many adults, the signs of aging show up in your hands as your skin loses volume, making your veins protrude and your knuckles appear wrinkly. Dermal fillers have the power to plump up the skin on the back of your hands to minimize the effects of aging, often in one visit. If you’re tired of looking at your own veiny, wrinkly hands, let Radiesse come to the rescue.

With so many options to choose from, and a variety of anti-aging uses, dermal fillers are an effective way to get immediate and long-lasting results. When you come to the office for a consultation, we carefully examine your skin, talk about your desired outcome, and explain which dermal fillers can help you achieve your specific goals.
