Since they hit the market, dermal fillers have come a long way, and today, they’re used to target several areas of the face that need a boost. From correcting fine lines and wrinkles to plumping the lips, contouring the cheeks, and even reshaping the entire nose, dermal fillers are remarkably versatile and highly effective.


Where might your face benefit from dermal fillers? Read on to learn about four of the most common ways these cosmetic injectables are used.


Adding Volume to the Lips

Volumizing the lips is probably the most popular current use of dermal fillers. And although it’s not uncommon to see over-plumped lips these days, if you’re curious about getting yours done, you should know that super-volumized lips are purely personal preference. If that’s not the look you desire, that’s not the look you’ll walk away with.


Juvederm Volbella and Ultra — dermal fillers specifically formulated for the lips— are fully customizable, so no matter what aesthetic you’re looking for, you can create it. Subtly enhance the shape of your lips, even out their texture, create symmetry — anything is possible. 


Contouring the Nose or Chin

For quite some time, surgical procedures were necessary to reshape and contour both the nose and the chin. That’s not so today. Certain dermal fillers can achieve a non-surgical rhinoplasty or chin augmentation in a matter of minutes with almost no downtime at all. Restylane Lift is commonly used for improving the shape and contour of the nose, while Juvederm Voluma and Volux are widely used for shaping the chin. 


Filling in Lines Around the Mouth and Nose

Lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose — marionette lines and nasolabial folds, respectively — can be minimized or even eliminated entirely with certain dermal fillers. If you have smile lines you’re not in love with, Restylane, Juvederm, or Sculptra can fill and correct them.


Erasing Forehead Lines and Wrinkles

Botox is the most popular treatment for filling in forehead lines, but if you’re not keen on limiting your ability to contract your forehead muscles, fillers work wonderfully, too. Rather than essentially paralyzing your forehead muscles to prevent wrinkles from showing, hyaluronic acid (a hydrophilic compound present in many dermal fillers) literally fills those lines and wrinkles in.
