Getting to Know Your Filler Options

Dermal fillers are used to treat a number of aesthetic concerns and signs of aging, but not all fillers are intended for use everywhere. Some are specifically designed to get rid of the hollows and dark circles under the eyes while others are formulated to create fuller, softer lips. Before you schedule your first appointment for lip injections in London, Ontario, it’s best to get to know all of your filler options.

Types of Fillers

All dermal fillers fall under one of two main categories: soft tissue fillers or volumizers. The fillers that make up each of these categories are designed for different purposes. In general, soft tissue fillers are used to fill smile lines, wrinkles, fine lines, thinning lips, and shallow acne scars. Volumizers are best for giving the face more definition and improve skin elasticity around the cheeks and eyes. These are the most popular filler options to choose from based on what you’d like to achieve.

Soft Tissue Fillers

JUVÉDERM® fillers:

  • Reduces wrinkles around the lips
  • Uses a unique gel formula
  • Can be used under the eyes for dark circles and hollows

Combining Treatments

More often than not, those seeking dermal fillers will combine fillers with other treatments in order to get the comprehensive results they want. Patients can safely combine injectable fillers with laser skin resurfacing or platelet-rich plasma therapy to improve the skin’s tone and texture. They can also help extend the results of your fillers as they work to encourage collagen production and replace damaged skin cells, which continues to improve the skin’s elasticity and appearance for months after the fillers wear off.

If you’re looking for a trustworthy cosmetic and medical dermatology practice to perform your lip injections in London, Ontario, DermEffects offers all of these filler options and so much more. Treatments are noninvasive and eliminate signs of aging: wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, scars, and more.
