07 Oct Facial Contouring: The Beauty Of Dermal Fillers
Did you know that dermal fillers have been around, in some capacity, for more than 40 years? However, they have only just gained significant traction in the last 2 decades, with the facial contouring trend taking off dramatically in the mid-2010s. The very first filler agent to be given the FDA’s seal of approval for facial cosmetic injection was actually purified bovine collagen, just over 40 years ago, in 1981!
Fillers have changed and improved a great deal over the years, only to become the go-to facial contouring treatment of choice for thousands of patients across the globe.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are an injectable aesthetic treatment designed to smooth out wrinkles, restore lost volume and enhance natural features. Contouring the face in this way allows for natural-looking results that can otherwise be tricky to maintain as we age.
Most dermal fillers, ours included, are hyaluronic acid-based, which is a naturally-occurring substance within our bodies that aids in volumising and hydrating skin tissue for a healthy, glowing complexion. Hyaluronic acid has also been proven to stimulate the production of collagen proteins, which encourage youthful skin behaviours. Over time, our collagen levels gradually decrease, contributing to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity.
When laxity is a particular concern, our experts at TLC will often recommend leading injectables like Sculptra and Radiesse, which offer enhanced collagen stimulation for fast-acting plumpness. Other brands we work with include Juvéderm, Teosyal and Belotero, who are all well-known within the aesthetics industry for their safe and reliable dermal filler solutions.
Are Dermal Fillers Right For You?
The beauty of dermal fillers lies in their versatility. So much research has been poured into this vein of the aesthetics industry, which has led to the development of novel contouring treatment applications. At its core, dermal filler treatment is used to restore lost volume to areas of sagging skin where fine lines and wrinkles are particularly harsh. However, dermal fillers now boast multiple other uses that you may not be aware of.
Some brands have specifically designed a line of fillers for treating the lips. More and more patients want to achieve the perfect lip shape and size and they come to our experts at The Lovely Clinic for a natural-looking, yet highly effective lip enhancement. Like all of our treatments, lip fillers are tailored to you. We will take your face shape and the proportions of your features into consideration to ensure the best possible results.
If it’s your eyes that are leaving you feeling a little deflated, ask your aesthetician about tear trough fillers. By using a super-light filler designed specifically for the delicate area beneath the eyes, we can banish that tired, sunken look and lay the foundations for a brighter, healthier appearance. Eye bags, dark circles and even upper-eyelid hollows can be addressed in this way.
Finally, why not take full advantage of the power of dermal fillers by completely redefining your face shape and rebalancing your profile? Sometimes, injuries can leave things like your nose with a crooked bridge or perhaps you simply don’t like the features you were blessed with. We can use dermal fillers to achieve complete facial transformation and deep contouring, which is why we include them as part of our non-surgical facelift treatment package.
