Dermal Fillers: Where, When, and Why

Chin filler injection

As humans age, our bodies begin to change. Certain parts may begin to sag, and wrinkles can develop where they didn’t exist before. The most common culprit is a natural loss of collagen. As you grow older, your body produces less collagen, which directly results in the loosening and sagging of your skin. 

This can be combated by dermal fillers, which boost the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid. The effect is much more youthful and smooth skin. If you are interested in dermal fillers and want to know if your skin would be a good candidate, it’s important to reach out to a qualified maxillofacial surgeon. At Elizabeth Oral Surgery Group, we offer top-notch aesthetic cosmetic surgery with guaranteed results. 

Where Do You Need Dermal Fillers? 

Dermal fillers are commonly used to lift the skin in certain areas of the face, including deep wrinkles and the soft pockets beneath the eyes. The natural boost of hyaluronic acid can be used to smooth out highly-used areas of the face, including smile lines, marionette lines, and the area above your nose and between your eyebrows. 

Dermal fillers will not only aid in the smoothing of wrinkled skin, but additionally, they can: 

  • Increase the plumpness of your lips
  • Sculpt your chin and jaw
  • Help treat acne scars

Depending on the specific areas of your face you want treated, your surgeon will recommend a specific kind of dermal filler. 

When Do You Need Dermal Fillers? 

Before having the procedure, you will meet with a professional surgeon to discuss your wishes, goals, and desired outcomes. Deciding exactly when you need dermal fillers is a personal choice. Your surgeon is there to help you achieve the aesthetic look you want and help set realistic expectations. 

If you decide you are not quite ready for dermal fillers, your surgeon can help offer a variety of other options. 

Why Do You Need Dermal Fillers? 

Whether you are looking to eradicate a scar or deep wrinkles or simply want to help keep the skin on your face smooth, dermal fillers can help. The soft, gel-like substance will be injected underneath the skin to increase the natural roundness and plumpness of the face that your waning levels of collagen have reversed. 

The body’s supply of collagen begins to deplete around the age of 30 for most people. External factors like pollution, stress, and sun exposure can speed this process up. When the supply begins to wane, it is harder for your body to fight off wrinkles. The skin begins to lose its elasticity and volume. If you have noticed the hollowing of your cheeks and natural thinning of the skin around your face, dermal fillers may be able to help.
