5 Areas of the Face That Can Be Improved with Fillers


When you look in the mirror, the signs of aging you see on your face can be distressing. Beginning as early as your 30s or even late 20s, fine lines around the mouth and nose, dark circles under the eyes, and drooping upper eyelids, little by little, have started appearing.

Many contributing factors can be causing these irritating symptoms: smoking, stress, lack of sleep, excessive sun exposure, and genetics are all to blame for the early signs of aging.

Fortunately, the board-certified plastic surgeons at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg in Virginia have several non-surgical options in the form of injectable dermal fillers that can rejuvenate your face and help turn back the clock on aging.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Also known as injectable fillers, dermal fillers are a valuable tool in restoring fullness and volume to your face, ultimately reducing the appearance of age-related lines, wrinkles, and other flaws. Many patients experience facial fat and volume loss as a natural consequence of the aging process.

Fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin with a blunt tip cannula. Many of the elements injected, such as hyaluronic acid and collagen, occur naturally in the skin, making them well-received by most patients. Even better, injections require no recovery time and provide immediate results!

We offer a comprehensive selection of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, specifically formulated for specific skin areas, to patients in the Fredericksburg, Virginia area. These include:

  • Juvéderm® Voluma
  • Juvéderm® Ultra
  • Juvéderm® Ultra Plus
  • Restylane®
  • Restylane® Lyft
  • Restylane® Silk

Dermal Fillers, A Noninvasive Alternative

Dermal fillers are highly effective and easily customized for each patient, addressing specific problem areas. For long-lasting results, patients can maintain their results by following a customized treatment plan with routine scheduled treatments.

Curious about how your face could benefit from filler injections? Check out this list of five common areas where dermal fillers can be used!

1. Cheeks and Temples: Added Contour, Curve, and Lift

The rich formula of Juvéderm® Voluma can create more structured-looking cheekbones and add plumpness to your temples, adding a more youthful look to your mid-face.

2. Smile Lines: Smoothed Nasolabial Folds

Filler applied to the mid-face fills in the smile lines and wrinkles known as nasolabial folds, providing a perfect balance of flexibility and smoothness. It’s an ideal treatment for an area that constantly moves as you talk and smile.

3. Lips: Volumized, Smoothed Vertical lines, Improved Symmetry

Not only can we use dermal fillers to achieve natural-looking volume in our lips, but they can also smooth vertical lip lines and wrinkles that form around the lips.

4. Chin: Balanced Proportions, Added Definition

By adding definition to the chin, fillers can create an improved, balanced, and better-defined profile. Many patients are surprised at how much more youthful they look with artfully placed filler injections creating a slimmer chin, together with filled-in lines and wrinkles.

5. Jawline and Neck: Smoothed, Confident, Youthful

The highly cohesive Juvéderm® Voluma formula can be applied along the bony jawline area, strengthening the natural contours, smoothing horizontal wrinkles and lines in the neck.

Take the Next Step, Refresh Your Appearance!

Are you tired of fine lines and wrinkles on your face? Then dermal fillers or other non-invasive facial rejuvenation may be your best move towards refreshing your appearance.

Since no surgery is involved, the recovery time associated with injectable fillers is virtually nonexistent. Patients can quickly complete a filler treatment and then continue with their daily routine, even returning to work the same day.

What Can Men Expect During Their Recovery from Dermal Fillers?

Men of all ages are discovering the many benefits of dermal fillers: These versatile compounds can be used to fill in distracting creases, amplify facial volume, and contour specific facial features. Many guys are using dermal fillers to create a more defined jawline or more prominent cheeks without surgery. Some fillers, like Juvéderm® Voluma, can actually emulate a mid-face lift. Juvéderm® Voluma raises and fills the cheeks, tightening loose skin in the process and restoring a youthful yet masculine look.

One of the primary advantages of this type of treatment is its lack of downtime; recovering from filler injections is relatively easy and doesn’t require bed rest. Still, this shouldn’t be taken to mean that fillers have absolutely no side effects. If you’re interested in trying Juvéderm®, you should learn what to expect ahead of time in order to ensure a comfortable post-procedure experience.

Recovering from Dermal Filler Treatment

In some ways, men have an easier time than women when recovering from injectable treatments. Men don’t bruise as easily as women do, and because they have thicker skin and larger facial muscles, they often require less filler. This naturally limits the two main side effects of dermal fillers: Bruising and swelling around the injection sites.

Fillers are the closet treatment to a magic wand. Usually there are no side effects, but mild bruising is possible. Patients can return to work right away. If for some reason you were unhappy with the results it is completely reversible.

How Can a Facial Benefit My Skin?

Facials aren’t just for pampering. They are a great way to improve your skin, too. Here are a few of the many benefits your skin can enjoy with the right facial:

  • Boost Circulation- Many facials include a gentle massage, which can boost circulation to your skin. This nourishes the cells, stimulates regeneration, and promotes healthy skin. And, yes, it feels lovely, too.
  • Remove Dead Skin Cells- Exfoliation is another facial essential that removes dead skin cells, oils, and product build-up. This can brighten the skin and remove impurities while revealing fresh, new skin. It also removes bacteria and prevents breakouts.
  • Fight Blemishes- Facials remove excess bacteria from the skin and are an excellent preventative measure when it comes to breakouts and blemishes. Extractions can remove any blemishes you already have while exfoliation can prevent many future breakouts. Facials are the key to smooth, blemish-free skin.
  • Smooth Skin- Facials can smooth rough skin for a smoother, softer complexion.
  • Improve Skin Tone- By removing dead, dull skin and revealing fresh, new skin, a facial can even out and improve skin tone. Discover your most beautiful skin.
