8 Unique Uses For Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, and Teosyal are most commonly used to reduce and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, plump lips, enhance cheekbones, and define your facial contours. Although these are the most common uses for dermal fillers, they surprisingly have multiple uses to achieve cosmetically aesthetic results and plastic surgeons have been using this to their advantage! Not only are these fillers widely used, the range of effectiveness is widespread as well. Here are a few unique ways in which dermal fillers can be used to help you look and feel your best.

8 Unique Uses For Dermal Fillers

Hand Rejuvenation

Over time, our hands are susceptible to sun damage and lose volume due to constant use, and you may begin to notice that bones, veins, and ligaments are much more visible and prominent. The appearance of your hands is one of the most tell-tale signs of aging and can easily give away your age, even if you have no lines, wrinkles, or other aging signs on your face. This can be easily addressed with the use of injectable fillers, which can rejuvenate the hands by replacing the subcutaneous fat that we tend to naturally lose as we age. Dermal fillers such as Radiesse work to add volume to the hands, while laser treatments such as broadband light (BBL) can be used to reduce the appearance of age spots or other types of discolouration to reverse the signs of aging.

Earlobe Rejuvenation

Signs of skin damage and volume loss and skin elasticity loss can be seen everywhere as we age, including our earlobes. Heavy earrings and accessories only add the natural effects of gravity and volume loss and as a result, patients are beginning to address this concern with the use of injectable fillers. This gives the lobes a rounder appearance by enlarging the outer portion of the lobe, which helps rejuvenate lobes in a long-lasting, painless way.

The treatment is quite long-lasting, although it does depend on the type of filler used. The treatment will also not impede on your ability to wear earrings afterwards, and the procedure can be repeated once the fillers diminish with time.

Hollow Temples

One of the most common, tell-tale signs of aging is hollowed temples. As we age, the area around the temples tends to lose volume, revealing the bones underneath. This can make people appear tired, unwell, and much older than their years. Injectable fillers work to add volume to these hollowed areas, which helps lift the eyebrows and make the face appear more youthful and full.

Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation

Before dermal fillers were used for the chin area, augmenting the chin with implants was one of the only options for patients. However, chin implants did not work for everyone as they are a one-size-fits-all option that usually cannot be customized or adjusted to a patient’s existing facial profile, needs, or ethnicity. The personalized approach afforded to medical providers through the use of dermal fillers allows the chin’s projection to be customized for each and every patient. Beyond this, the shape of the chin can also be modified to help a patient achieve a rounder face, a heart-shaped face, or anything in between.

The most commonly used fillers for a non-surgical chin augmentation here at McLean Clinic includes Juvederm and Radiesse. The procedure can take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes and is relatively painless.

Non-Surgical Nose Augmentation

Non-surgical nose augmentations are a revolutionary procedure that re-shapes the nose with dermal fillers. This non-invasive procedure can help the nose appear more harmonious with the rest of your surrounding features by making it appear straighter, narrower, and smoother.

Non-surgical nose augmentations are an increasingly popular alternative to surgery as results are immediate without requiring any lengthy recovery periods or incisions. The treatment has the ability to correct minor imperfections and the results will be both subtle and natural.

Neck Lines

As we age, it is common for necklines, rings, or wrinkles to appear in both men and women. Dermal filler injections are versatile and can be used to treat and reduce the appearance of these lines for patients of all ages. To do this, volume is added to these lines or rings to reduce their appearance and make them less prominent while maintaining a natural definition to the neck.

Dark Circles and Under-Eye Bags

The area around the eyes is one of the quickest places to show signs of aging, stress, and lack of sleep. Common signs of high-stress levels include lack of sleep, which can then appear on the face in the form of under eye hollows, dark circles, and saggy eye bags, however prominent dark circles and under-eye bags can also be genetic and passed down through your heritage.

Injectable dermal fillers have proven to be an effective method to reduce the appearance of dark circles, under-eye hollows, eye bags, and crow’s feet. The procedure is also quick and relatively painless, providing you with immediate results that can last for months.

Pitted Acne Scars

Acne scars in the form of icepick, rolling, and boxcar scars sit below the surface of your surrounding skin and happen when there is a lack of collagen production and tissue loss during the healing process. Often times, they are some of the hardest to treat with laser treatments and chemical peels alone. However, the appearance of the skin can be smoothed out with the use of dermal fillers that are injected into affected areas to fill in space behind the scar and leave the area more even with the rest of the surrounding skin.

Hyaluronic acid based fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse provide immediate results and work to provide long-term results by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. Although your results from fillers are not permanent, they will work to lift the depressed scars for approximately one year, though this varies from patient to patient depending on how quickly their body metabolizes the substance.
