Here’s how fillers can freshen up your appearance


Fillers have been around a long time and for good reason. Its safety record, efficacy and versatility are all but just a few reasons why dermal fillers remain a popular choice for anyone looking to improve their facial proportions and freshen up their appearance.

Medical grade fillers consist of hyaluronic acid which is naturally occurring in our bodies, and are often used to add volume to areas which appear ‘sunken’ or ‘hollow’ as we get older. Fillers are generally quick procedures when done by a skilled doctor, and can be completed in under an hour without any downtime or obvious telltale signs that you’ve had something done.

Here are some popular ways fillers are used to give one’s appearance a boost.

#1 Lips

This is probably one of the most well-known uses for fillers and may have developed a bad reputation for over-filled lips commonly seen in celebrities. Rest assured this is the not the default result for all lip fillers.

Lip fillers, like any other aesthetic procedure, is meant to complement the rest of your facial features. This means the proportions, shape and volume of your lip will need to be customised to you. A skilled doctor will take all this into consideration to give you lips that look naturally attractive, with everyone none the wiser.

#2 Cheeks

Cheeks like other parts of our body tend to lose volume as we age. Fillers injected into the cheeks can help to restore volume and a youthful appearance.

#3 Forehead lines

When it comes to lines, we usually can’t decide between anti-wrinkle injections or fillers. Anti-wrinkle injections work by paralyzing the muscles, to prevent them from creating the lines. Fillers on the other hand fill in the crease with hyaluronic acid.

Either way, the idea is to eliminate deep wrinkles on our faces that can make us look older than we really are (or feel).

#4 Undereye

Dark undereye can give others the impression you haven’t had a good rest and are tired. More often than not, dark undereye circles could be due to genetic reasons. If your skin in the undereye area is very thin, the darkness that you could see could actually be coming from the blood vessels under the skin.

Undereye filler can help to introduce a layer between the skin and blood vessels, reducing the appearance of dark undereye circles, freshening up your look.

#5 Reshape the chin or nose

Fillers range from soft to hard fillers. Hard fillers are often used to augment the shape of one’s chin or nose. This can have the effect of improving one’s profile, evening out any asymmetry, or reduce the appearance of a sagging neck. Such fillers typically last longer too than fillers used for the lips or undereye area.
