What Can Dermal Fillers Treat

 In Facial Fillers

When a patient is looking for a non-surgical or non-invasive treatment that can help smooth or plump certain features, dermal fillers are a great solution. These injections are completely safe and effective for a variety of different concerns.

Dermal fillers can be injected in a wide range of places and can give results that are either visible or subtle, depending on your goal. This is what dermal fillers can treat.

Dermal Fillers Uses


One of the best-known uses of dermal fillers is on the lips. Many celebrities have had these lip injections  performed. They work by having the filler placed in either the border of the lips to improve definition or directly into the body of the lips to increase fullness. While most people think they are only a solution for thin lips, dermal fillers can also correct a downward smile by helping the symmetry of the lips and mouth.


Instead of going through with a surgical chin augmentation, many patients will opt to have dermal fillers used on their chins. The fillers are used to make the jaw line more defined if you are concerned by a small chin. The dermal filler will not last forever, however, and you still might want to consider surgery for a more permanent solution in the future.


It is natural to see your cheeks lose volume as you age. This is due to a gradual loss of subcutaneous fat in your face, making you look older, more tired, or gaunt. The dermal fillers can fill in the hollow areas to plump out the face to a natural-looking volume, resulting in a younger and more refreshed appearance.

Under Eyes:

Another great use of dermal fillers is to correct the part under your eyes, known as the tear trough. As we age, we lose volume under the eyes naturally, due to a loss of bone density and tissue elasticity. The tear trough area can make you appear tired even when you are not. The dermal fillers will make your eyes appear younger and more rested.


While getting dermal filler in your nose might seem unusual, it is actually a great surgical alternative to a nose job. Dermal fillers in this case can help reduce the appearance of lumps and bumps in the nose as well as smoothing out any crooked lines you might have. This is a great option for working people who do not want to have any surgical downtime from a nose correction.

It is important to remember that dermal fillers might not always be the best approach, depending on what you would like to use them for. Speaking with a plastic surgeon can help guide you to the right direction.
