5 Ways to Use Fillers You Probably Didn’t Know About!
- Posted on: Aug 31 2015
Fillers are a fantastic way to add back lost volume in your face. As we age, our collagen production begins to decline and migrate downward, leaving behind lines, folds and sagging. The most common places for using fillers are on the face, around the mouth, chin, and jawline. However, there are many other incredible ways to use fillers that many people are not aware of!
Fillers can be used to reshape the bridge and tip of the nose. This procedure is also referred to as a non-surgical nose reshaping, or a no-knife nose job. This procedure can be used to smooth or straighten out the nasal hump, correct asymmetry, build up the bridge, or enhance the tip of the nose.
Unlike plastic surgery, the results are not permanent, so there is no concern for a “botched nose job”. Since patients are awake during the procedure they can also provide feedback during the procedure. The treatment takes only minutes and there is no downtime required, unlike surgery which requires extensive recovery times. Dermal fillers also last longer in the nose because there is no dynamic muscle movement like in the face.
Nose filler can last from 1 year to 2.5 years, depending on the filler that is used. The results with this procedure are immediate, very natural looking, and patients are amazed with the results that can be achieved!
Hands & Feet
The Radiesse Hand Lift is a new procedure that utilizes Radiesse to plump up and restore the youthful appearance of hands. Radiesse is injected just beneath the skin to raise the skin so that it is level with tendons and veins. This greatly reduces the prominence of veins and tendons, and makes your hands look youthful and supple.
Radiesse is also a collagen stimulator to aid your body’s own natural collagen production. The results of a Radiesse Hand Lift are immediately visible and can last up to two years.
Over time, earlobes begin to lose their collagen and creases can develop. Years of wearing earrings can also stretch out the earlobes and cause them to sag. Fillers can quickly and effectively restore the youthful plumpness to your earlobes.
Dermal filler is injected into the earlobe with a fine needle to add volume to the lobe, smooth out lines and creases, and minimize the appearance of large piercings. As with the nose treatment, dermal fillers last longer in the earlobes because there is no muscle movement.
The temples are an area that most people don’t think about, however it is an area that experiences a lot of volume loss as we age. Most temples have a slight concavity, but too much concavity disrupts the frame or silhouette of the face and this only worsens with age. This may not be something that we conscientiously think about, but when pointed out to most patients they are suddenly very aware of the changes that have occurred in there temple region. Increased volume in the temples can have a stunning effect on improving the youthful appearance of the face!
Inverted and flat nipples are relatively common. Inverted nipples are also not gender specific and can occur in both women and men. Surgical correction of this problem can have complications and often doesn’t have satisfactory outcomes. By using fillers, a flat or inverted nipple may be accentuated or lifted to a more desirable height. This is a fast, non-surgical method that requires no anesthesia or downtime.
