If you’re looking for a minimally invasive, non-surgical way to improve your face, look no further than dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances commonly made with an ingredient called hyaluronic acid, which is already produced by our skin and helps keep it hydrated.
Over time, however, the production of hyaluronic acid in our bodies decreases, contributing to the appearance of wrinkles or a saggy appearance to the skin. By injecting hyaluronic acid back into the skin with dermal fillers, you can plump up, add fullness, or smooth out those problem areas.

Dermal fillers are probably best known for their ability to plump up your lips, but they can also help in other ways. Consider using dermal fillers to fill in cracks or fine lines in the lips to even out their texture, or to help create symmetrical smiles in those with uneven mouths.
If you don’t like the idea of Botox, then consider using dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Instead of freezing your facial muscles to minimize wrinkles, the lines are simply filled in with naturally occurring hyaluronic acid.
Have you noticed that you’ve lost some volume in your cheeks but are too nervous to get a facelift? You can restore it with dermal fillers! This can give you a more youthful appearance without the long recovery time that is required with surgery.
These two are often confused with each other, so let’s begin by clearing up the difference: nasolabial folds are commonly referred to as “smile lines”, while marionette lines are the lines under the corners of the mouth (giving the appearance of a marionette).
In either case, dermal fillers can fill in the lost volume in these folds and lines to restore the appearance of younger-looking skin.
Chin and nose augmentations are often done together to help bring a sense of balance to the face.
If you have a bump in your nose or find it to be crooked, then dermal fillers can help you achieve a straighter side profile. This is sometimes referred to as “liquid rhinoplasty”.
As for your chin, dermal fillers can help soften a square or pointed chin or minimize a double chin. You could potentially even chance the whole shape of your face, going from a round face to a more heart-shaped one.
Facial scars as a result of acne or otherwise are often a point of insecurity for those who have them, even if they really aren’t that noticeable to others. Dermal fillers can be used to minimize scars and smooth out the texture of the surrounding skin.
