5 Areas of the Face That Can Be Improved With Fillers

Dermal filler injections are currently one of the most popular treatments in the aesthetic field of medicine—and for a good reason. These versatile injections require no downtime for recovery and produce immediate results.

Medical grade filler injections typically consist of hyaluronic acid or collagen, which are natural proteins found in the skin and are responsible for keeping the skin plump and hydrated. The injections restore collagen lost due to age, creating an effect that fills in wrinkles and plumps volume in the desired areas.

Dr. J. Randall Jordan and the team of aesthetic professionals at Faces, PLLC in Ridgeland, MS, offer a wide variety of the latest dermal fillers and are highly regarded for their expertise in facial rejuvenation.

Here are five areas of the face that can be improved with dermal fillers:

1. Lips

Plumping the lips might be one of the most common areas that dermal fillers are used these days. Despite a frequent association with over-filling, lip fillers can be easily customized to achieve a subtle enhancement to the natural shape of the lips without making them look overdone.

Lip injections can also help even out the texture by filling in lines around the mouth due to genetics or created from habits like smoking.

2. Cheeks

The cheeks are another popular area where volume loss becomes noticeable with age. Expertly injected fillers can effectively restore volume and the youthful appearance of the cheeks without the face looking puffy or frozen.

Adding subtle amounts of volume back into the cheeks creates an overall rejuvenated and younger-looking face without an invasive procedure such as a traditional facelift surgery, which can require significant downtime and recovery.

3. Forehead

Unlike BOTOX® or Dysport®, which temporarily block the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles, fillers can reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and static lines even when the face isn’t at rest. The injections do this by filling in the lines with a hyaluronic-based gel compound that looks and feels completely natural.

4. “Marionette Lines” and “Nasolabial Folds”

Marionette lines often form below each corner of the mouth and can significantly age a person’s face, causing them to take on the appearance of a marionette doll. Fillers can be used to easily fill in those lines and instantly take years off the face and restore softness to the mouth and chin.

Often referred to as smile lines, nasolabial folds are the lines seen from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth and can be easily corrected with fillers to create a youthful, yet natural look to the face.

5. Reduce the Appearance of Scars

Scars from past acne breakouts can create uneven texture, indentations, and deep pockets in the skin. These scars can be challenging to get rid of on your own and are a common source of insecurity for some people. Fortunately, dermal fillers can be used to lessen the appearance of scars, even out textures, and increase self-confidence.
