Injectable fillers are used to fill in areas where volume loss has occurred over time with age. It is most often used in the face to lift cheeks, shape jaw lines and fill in other areas where creases in the skin have formed.  Interestingly, injectors have found some more unique uses for filler to correct some of their patients’ concerns. 

Lines around the neck (Tech Neck)

Rings can form around one’s neck from spending too much time looking down at a phone, laptop or tablet.  These lines can also just form over time with age. Injectors have begun to use filler to reduce the crease in their patients’ necks.  Now filler is not your only option for smoothing out these lines, but is one of the many ways an aesthetic practice will use to smooth these rings around the neck.

Acne Scars

Some acne scars can be treated with laser or chemical peels, but for the tougher ones, filler can be used to fill in space behind a scar, pushing it out.  This process works similar to suctioning out a dent in the hood of a car.

Earlobes

As we age, volume is lost everywhere in the body, including the earlobes.  For women who wear heavy jewelry, the earlobe can begin to sag.  Filler can be used to give some youth to sagging earlobes.  With one treatment of filler, earlobes will have added volume and the damage caused by earrings is reduced.

Knee Wrinkles

Signs of aging above the knees can now be reduced with the use of certain fillers.  Poly-lactic acid in filler will tighten the extra skin above the knees while helping the body to create collagen.  Skin quality will improve and sagging of skin over the knees will be reduced. Filler is one of a few different treatments that are available to help tighten skin above the knees.

Hands

There are multiple different hand rejuvenation treatments such as BBL to reduce dark spots from sun damage, but fillers can also be used to add volume around tendons and bones that have begun to stick out.  With a filler treatment, one will no longer be able to look at your hands and guess your age as it adds in volume that was lost over time. 

 Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation

A stronger jawline is considered to make one look smarter and healthier!  It’s a look desired by models around the world. Before dermal fillers were used for chin augmentation, implants were the only option.  What makes filler a better option is that it can be customized to one’s face, and give a more desirable look.
