5 Popular Uses of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatments available. In recent years, many of these fillers have become increasingly effective, providing results that look more natural and last much longer. While dermal fillers cannot achieve the truly customized and dramatic results associated with a facelift, they provide an excellent alternative for people experiencing the early signs of facial aging or who prefer a nonsurgical facial rejuvenation solution.

Dr. Kleto can use dermal fillers to address a wide range of aesthetic goals. During your initial consultation, he’ll recommend the ideal filler to address your unique needs.

Reduction of Nasolabial Folds

Nasolabial folds are lines that extend from the nose down to the corners of the mouth. As you age, these lines become more prominent. Adding volume to the mid-face region is an effective way to improve the appearance of these lines.

Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Voluma are relatively thick dermal fillers, making them an effective option to add volume to this region of your face and reduce the severity of nasolabial folds.

Cheek and Chin Augmentation

A strongly defined chin or high cheekbones can have a dramatic impact on your appearance. Improving the definition of the chin can help men achieve a much more masculine appearance, while high cheekbones are typically a very attractive trait on a woman.

Traditionally, these goals have been accomplished using silicone implants. However, dermal fillers provide an effective alternative that allows you to avoid a surgical procedure. Dr. Kleto typically recommends Juvederm Voluma for the best chin and cheek augmentation results.

Lip Augmentation

If you would like to plump up thin lips or create a more attractive contour to your lips, dermal fillers provide an excellent solution.

Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Silk are both thin, fluid fillers that are ideal for delicate reshaping of your lips. These fillers can help you achieve subtle, natural looking results. If you prefer a more dramatic outcome or a significant increase in lip volume, a thicker filler such as Juvederm Ultra Plus may be a better option.

Reduction of Under-Eye Circles

Dark circles underneath the eyes are a common issue impacting many men and women. They often occur due to lost volume under the eyes, discolored skin or because of a genetic predisposition. Dermal fillers are able to reduce the shadows and hollowed-out under-eye appearance caused by lost volume in the region.

The most effective fillers to improve the appearance of under-eye circles are fluid, delicate and malleable. Dr. Kleto typically recommends Juvederm Volbella, Restylane Silk or Belotero for the best results.

Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping

If you would like to improve the appearance of your nose, rhinoplasty provides the most effective and long-lasting solution. However, there are certain instances where surgery isn’t necessary to achieve your desired nose reshaping goals. Dermal fillers can be very effective at creating an upturned tip and disguising bumps in the nose.

During your consultation, Dr. Kleto will examine your nose and listen carefully to your goals in order to determine the right treatment plan for your unique needs. If he feels you may benefit from a nonsurgical treatment option, he’ll recommend the ideal filler to achieve your desired outcome.
