Facial fillers from our Toronto practice are extremely popular for accentuating certain areas of the face. These highly versatile treatments have many benefits that go beyond plumping lips or contouring cheeks. As we age, our facial skin, muscles, fat pads and bone undergo changes that can impact our appearance. Fortunately, advancements in cosmetic dermatology offer non-invasive solutions, and one popular option is hyaluronic acid facial filler. These injectable gels can address various concerns and target specific areas of the face, providing a more youthful and refreshed look. Although you may already know that fillers plump the cheeks and lips, you might not be aware of several other benefits. The following are some of the best areas that can be enhanced by facial fillers.

  • Hollow Temples

Aging can cause volume loss and a hollowing of the temples may be a natural part of this process. Soft tissue, fat and bone may lose density, resulting in a loss of structural support. Fillers can revitalize the temple area and help lift the cheeks. Hyaluronic acid fillers can add volume to the temple and brow area to plump up the hollows.

  • Crow’s Feet

Sun exposure, loss of collagen and squinting contribute to the formation of crow’s feet – wrinkles that form at the outer corners of the eyes. Eventually, as they become more etched, crow’s feet may appear not only when you’re smiling but also when your face is at rest. Neuromodulators can relax the muscles that cause the lines and filler can provide some plumping and smoothing of the lines.

  • Laugh Lines

Laugh lines, also known as parenthesis lines or nasolabial folds, are creases that extend from the corners of the nose to the sides of the mouth. Almost everyone has these lines, even children, but they may become more pronounced as we age. Fillers can be injected directly into these lines or into the surrounding cheek area to address them.

  • Marionette Lines

Wrinkles at the corners of the mouth that extend to the chin, also known as marionette lines or melomental folds, can become deeper because of volume loss in the area and sagging of the cheeks. Strategically placed fillers can minimize these wrinkles.

  • Chin and Jawline

Filler for the lower face can reduce wrinkles and sculpt the chin area to improve facial proportions and overall balance. Fillers injected along the jawline can create a sculpted appearance.

  • Neck

Since most of us focus our skin care efforts on the face, the neck is often a neglected area. Neck wrinkles may be genetic but worsen with age and sun exposure. “Tech Neck” wrinkling is the result of bending our necks down to look at our cell phones. Neck filler adds plumpness to reduce these horizontal necklace lines and provides skin hydration.
