Facial Dermal Fillers (Nose, Chin & Undereyes)
Facial Dermal Fillers
Ageing is a natural process where the body changes over time with the passing of the years. One of the effects of ageing is the depletion of collagen, which keeps the skin elastic, supple and plumped up. When collagen starts to get depleted, wrinkles and fine lines will form. In older people, there might be sagging skin and sunken areas visible too.
However, with improvements in aesthetics, people now have many options to help them maintain their natural look of youthfulness.
Dermal fillers include nose fillers, chin fillers and under eye fillers. Frequently used for facial remodelling, the face can be reshaped to make your features sharper or smoother. The procedure is quick and relatively painless, with minimal downtime.
When fillers are injected into the under eye area near the lower lashline, it has a dual role. Firstly, it accentuates the eyes, making them look bigger and rounder. This gives a more youthful and sweeter appearance. Secondly, it draws attention away from the dark circles under the eyes due to lack of sleep. This treatment is known as the famous Korean ‘love band’ plumper, also known as the Ageyo Sal plumper. It is a favourite under eye filler which helps improve the appearance of eye bags or dark eye circles.
Lip fillers are administered to restore the volume and natural contours of the lips, reproducing the ideal lip shape which you had in your youth. Most people associate full and attractive lips with youth, beauty and sensuality. The lip fillers will also address the fine lines typical on dehydrated lips.
Nose and chin fillers help to add volume in the right places. People born with less definition or lose definition over time from the natural process of aging can use fillers to create a more defined nose, strong jawline, more desired angularity and chin projection to overcome any chin recession or look of a weak chin.
