3 Reasons to Consider Dermal Filler Injections By Constance M. Barone, M.D. on July 16, 2017

The word “filler” doesn’t have the best connotations: filler words bog down speech, filler activities are ones that just to pass the time. Fillers when it comes to your face, however, are a different story. Since Restylane fillers were first FDA approved 20 years ago, dermal fillers have become an integral part of anti-aging aesthetic medicine. Today, more than 28 million Restylane treatments have been performed. We also have many other filler brands, such as Juvederm, Belotero, and Teosyal. Overall, fillers can improve your overall appearance and enhance your look, taking years off. Here’s a bit more on how fillers can have game-changing effects on anyone’s physical appearance, leaving them looking healthier and happier.

Restore Volume

As we age, we often lose volume and tone to our face. Dermal fillers are designed to rejuvenate the face by filling in areas of volume loss. They target lines, wrinkles, and hollowed cheeks by returning volume to these areas. If you notice your once-prominent cheekbones deflating, especially when you look at your face at an angle, fillers can help. They provide a defined curvature, and add shape to the face. Once your curvature begins to flatten, fillers can restore volume for a healthier look.

Marionette Lines

One of the biggest telltale signs that it’s time to consider fillers is a noticeable deepening of the nasolabial folds. The nasolabial folds are the deep lines that form next to your mouth, aka marionette lines. Fine lines, wrinkles, and creases can be noticeably decreased with dermal fillers as well. If you’re seeing increased lines around your face, fillers can help “fill” them in and smoothing out the skin. Best of all, fillers are injected using small needles; no surgery is required.

Thicker Lips


Thicker lips bring attention to the mouth and can improve a person’s profile and bring balance to the face. Unfortunately, most people are not naturally born with plump lips. Dermal fillers are an ideal solution for adding that desired volume. With some simple injections, patients can increase the size of their lips, bring balance to their face and improving their profile.

When it comes to fillers, there’s a wide variety of options.
