Most people hear the word ‘fillers’ and think ‘lips’. While it is true that lip fillers have been wildly popular for some time now, there are several uses for fillers that you may have overlooked. Here are some other places that could benefit from fillers:
Cheeks tend to lose volume with age as collagen production starts to slow down. This is even more true if you’re a runner or you do high impact exercise – you may find that your cheeks sag more quickly than others. Fillers can bring some of that volume back, giving you a younger appearance. If you don’t like the look of Botox, this could be a good choice for you – it won’t give you that ‘frozen’ look that puts some people off.
This is another area in which it is popular to have Botox. If you don’t fancy that, you could go for fillers instead. While Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles to stop you from moving your face in a certain way, fillers fill in lines with hyaluronic acid, so it feels like a more natural alternative. Forehead fillers are becoming more and more popular as a Botox alternative, so it’s worth checking out some examples to see how it works.
Fillers can be used to gently reshape the chin or nose area, or even the jawline. If you have a bump in your nose that you feel self-conscious about, or you’d like to improve the appearance of your jawline as it starts to sag, fillers are a much less invasive option. Many people are now turning to fillers, as the recovery time is so much faster than surgery (and it costs a lot less, too, with fewer risks involved).
Marionette Line Fillers
The lines around your mouth that appear when you smile – marionette lines – can be very ageing. Fillers work really well at filling in the loss of volume here, which can make you look younger instantly. You can also use fillers in nasolabial folds (the lines from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth). It’s a gentle process that can make a surprisingly big difference.
Fillers to Reduce Scarring
Facial scars can be an emotional issue to deal with. If you feel upset or self-conscious about your facial scars, you could use filler to lessen their appearance and to improve the texture surrounding the scars. Again, it’s much less invasive than surgery, making it a much friendlier option for those wanting to increase their self-confidence.
As you can see, fillers can be used for all sorts of areas, as well as just lips. If you have a specific goal in mind, why not call and speak to a practitioner to see if they can help you using fillers? They can talk you through the process, the costs, and any of your concerns before you begin.
