Enhance Shallow Facial Contours
Dermal fillers can be used for plumping thin lips and enhancing shallow contours. They can also be used for removing wrinkles and softening facial creases. Improving the appearance of scars is another benefit of dermal injectables. Results are usually immediate depending on the dermal filler you use.
You can use dermal fillers for adding volume, and filling in wrinkles, scars, and lines for attaining a more youthful and smoother appearance. The injectables are made from bio-compatible and safe microparticles. Smile lines around the mouth and nose, frown lines between eyes, fine lines above lips, and acne scars are some of the most commonly treated concerns.

How to Improve Shallow Facial Contours with Fillers?
Dermal filler injectables can be used for adding volume to soft tissues. They are also called liquid facelifts because they provide almost the same benefits as facelift with zero to little downtime. Injectable dermal fillers can be used in combination with laser treatments, resurfacing procedures, and recontouring procedures.
Injected material gets metabolized by the body eventually causing the results to be temporary in nature. The extent of results depends on the injection site, skin quality, genetic background, and lifestyle among other factors.
You cannot clearly predict how long results may last. The treatment provider will attempt to make you more comfortable by using topical anesthesia, numbing spray or local anesthesia.
Different Types of Dermal Fillers for Contour Refinement
- Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body. It is ideal for plumping thin lips and filling facial creases, such as nasolabial folds. It is also useful for reducing concave scars and surface wrinkles. Results may last as long as 6 months or more.
- Hydroxylapatite is again a naturally occurring compound in the human body. It is responsible for bone texture and density. The microspheres are suspended in gel-like formation. This is the heaviest facial filler and is ideal for deeper creases, such as marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and frown lines. It can also be used for enhancing cheek fullness and other facial contours.
- Treatment providers can inject autologous fat for enhancing facial fulness, filling deep creases, and building up shallow contours. Fat injection is a more extensive procedure as compared to other fillers since it requires liposuction for extracting fat.
Dermal filler treatment results can last for a year in some cases. Results are highly variable. You may ask the treatment provider to store autologous fat safely for future treatments. However, preserved fat doesn’t provide as favorable results as freshly harvested fat.
Outlook and Results
Soft tissue augmentation using injectable fillers doesn’t provide permanent results. The duration of results depends on the absorption of fillers and continued aging of the face. Your facial appearance will return to its original condition if you choose not to get maintenance treatments.
