What Areas of Concern Can Dermal Fillers Help Address?

Wrinkles, creases, and age lines happen to the best of us – but that does not mean we have to live with them. In some cases, dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of these lines and wrinkles, creating a more youthful and revitalized appearance. So, what are dermal fillers, and what areas can they help with? Here is what you need to know.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are an FDA-regulated, non-surgical cosmetic solution used to even out wrinkles and age lines. Sessions typically take about 30 minutes and involve injecting a gel under the skin in the designated area. At Alfonso Barrera, we use Restylane gels, which have anesthesia and whose core ingredient is hyaluronic acid – a chemical compound produced naturally in the body.

The process is completely painless. We control the injections until we are satisfied that the wrinkles, creases, and age lines have dissipated. So, what areas of concern can dermal fillers address?

How Dermal Fillers Help

Dermal fillers can effectively reduce the appearance of various signs of aging.

Frown Lines, Forehead Wrinkles, and Lines and Crow’s Feet

Frown lines appear between your eyebrows and are represented as vertical lines. Forehead wrinkles are horizontal lines that appear just below your hairline. The combination of the two sometimes makes people feel we are unapproachable. Then, the crow’s feet on either side of our eyes branch outwards.

Fortunately, dermal fillers can address all these areas of concern. A dermal filler session can smooth out these wrinkles by giving your skin more volume, helping to reduce creases and flatten age lines.

Cheeks and Lips

Another unpleasant sign of aging is when our cheeks begin to sag, wrinkles develop on our lips, and they lose their volume. Many people associate rich, voluminous lips and plumb cheeks with being vibrant and youthful. Dermal fillers can return that youthful appearance by increasing the volume in your lips and cheeks, smoothing out wrinkles and lines, and making both your cheeks and lips appear plumper and fuller.

Vertical Lip Lines, Acne Scarring and Hands

While filling your lips, we can also address the vertical lines above your lips. Dermal fillers also help to reduce the appearance of acne scars while rejuvenating your hands and alleviating sagging, crepey skin on your forearms.
