What Areas Can Be Treated with Fillers?

Dermal fillers have become the second most popular cosmetic procedure in the world, surpassing long-time favorites like chemical peels and microdermabrasion. There are many reasons why dermal fillers are so popular, but one big one is that they’re incredibly versatile and can be used in many ways to reshape one’s appearance and restore youth.

Taking the Place of Surgery

In the past, no one would have thought that dermal fillers could take the place of surgery to achieve long-lasting results with no downtime, and dramatically reduced costs. Although lip augmentation with injectable fillers was an alternative to surgery in the past, it wasn’t until hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm came on the scene that results lasted long enough for it to be a serious contender.

Now dermal fillers are used in many places where surgery used to be the only option, such as for a nonsurgical nose job or brow lift. Cheekbone and chin augmentation can even be accomplished using fillers, ideally a long-term filler like Bellafill.

Eliminating Signs of Aging

Of course, the traditional role for dermal fillers is in erasing many of the common signs of aging. Ones commonly targeted by dermal fillers include smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds. Dermal fillers also work great for getting rid of hollows under the eyes, described as bags or sometimes as tear trough deformity.

Erasing Past Damage

Another common use for dermal fillers is in atrophic scars. In these scars, damage to the skin resulted in a loss of volume, leading to depressed areas. The most common form of atrophic scar is the acne scar, but there are many other atrophic scars that can be treated with dermal fillers.
