Every once in a while, wouldn’t it be nice to get a new look? Sure, we’ve all thought about tweaking something on our face. Maybe reshaping the nose, adding contour, a slight brow-lift, some dermal fillers to give our lips a boost, and different ways we can reshape our cheeks or chin or erase facial wrinkles.
Then we move on from these thoughts and go on about our day.
But what if you don’t have to move on? What if you could get facial contouring and erase the signs of aging and do it without invasive plastic surgery? Consider dermal fillers!
How Popular Are Dermal Fillers?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons statistics, there were more than 3.4 million dermal filler injections performed in the United States in 2020. That’s up nearly 50 percent since 2015. And that number is expected to continue growing as people become increasingly aware of how they can improve their appearance with non-invasive procedures like dermal fillers.
Why Are People Choosing Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are used for many reasons:
- They’re great for enhancing your natural beauty.
- They help smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
- They make skin appear more youthful.
- They add volume to areas of concern like cheeks, noses, chins and even lips.
- And finally, they provide instant gratification – no waiting months for results.
Another reason people are choosing dermal fillers is they are minimally invasive, which means you don’t have to undergo invasive and often expensive surgery to get the look you want.
Where Can Dermal Fillers Be Used?
Dermal fillers can be injected into any area that needs an enhancement. The most common places where people use them include their eyes, mouth and neck. They also work well as lip filler injections.
What Conditions Can Dermal Fillers Treat?
Wrinkles, Lines and Creases: Dermal fillers can enhance the appearance of wrinkles by smoothing out creases and folds. This is especially helpful when treating nasolabial folds. However, it’s important to note that not every wrinkle will respond equally to treatment with dermal fillers. Some may require multiple treatments over time. Others may need additional procedures such as Botox® Cosmetic to achieve optimal results.
Areas of Lost Volume: When there isn’t enough tissue present in some regions of the body, this causes volume loss. As we age, we lose volume in the face, neck and hands. Dermal fillers can help restore areas of lost volume and keep skin looking smooth and youthful.
Enhance Lips: Lip augmentation using dermal fillers has become increasingly popular among men and women alike. Many patients choose fillers to help them achieve fuller-looking lips.
Recessed Scars: Dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of indented scars by filling in depressions left behind after acne, chickenpox or surgery.
Chin Creases: Chin creases occur due to aging but can sometimes be caused by genetics. These creases often run vertically down the center of the chin. Dermal fillers are ideal for reducing the visibility of these creases.
Neck-Lift: Patients who have sagging jowls or loose skin on their necks benefit from having it treated with dermal fillers so that it looks smoother and tighter.
Nose Enhancement: Nose enhancements are becoming increasingly popular. Using dermal fillers to treat nasal bumps, dark circles around the nose, and other issues related to the nose can give you a refreshed, rejuvenated look.
Dermal fillers can also be used to treat lost cheek volume that can happen as we age, as a consequence of losing weight in your face, or as a result of genetics that may mean your face doesn’t have the contours you want.
Speaking of Contours …
Restylane Contour is the newest member of the Restylane family of products. This dynamic hyaluronic acid filler can help address lost cheek volume, correct midface contour issues and help define your face without cheek augmentation surgery. Restylane Countour is a hyaluronic acid-based gel that restores shape to your face with a subtle lift effect. This filler is especially beneficial for the cheeks and the midface.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found throughout our bodies. HA helps maintain moisture levels within tissues and plays a role in cell growth and repair. In addition, HA provides support to connective tissues like ligaments and tendons. Because of its ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, HA is highly effective at retaining hydration.
How Does Restylane Contour Work?
Its subtleness is one of the reasons that Restylane Contour is increasing in popularity; you can get the lift and shape you need without looking “done” or having invasive surgery. Another reason Restylane Contour is in high demand is that it seems natural. After all, it moves when you do.
This distinguishes the gel from other existing cheek fillers like Restylane Lyft and Juvéderm Voluma (which are both still excellent for cheek enhancement and giving other facial areas a boost) and another reason why Restylane Contour ranks high in terms of patient satisfaction.
In addition, with Restylane Contour, you can feel confident in making facial expressions such as smiling and laughing, which you’ll want to do more of because you will love your new look courtesy of Restylane Contour.
