Your once supple and blemish-free skin will inevitably have facial wrinkles, deep creases, and fine lines through time. But thanks to the world of beauty and cosmetics, injectable dermal fillers have inarguably become one of the best-kept secrets to reclaiming youthful skin. Fillers are incredibly versatile and can be used to correct a wide variety of facial aging concerns and skin imperfections. 

So what are the areas of the face where you can place facial fillers? They can be used for midface or cheek enhancement, lip augmentation, fine lines and wrinkle treatment, chin or jawline contour, non-surgical nose reshaping, and tear trough correction. While fillers are mostly used to restore lost facial volume to plump up the skin and soften visible deep wrinkles and facial lines, they have many other uses as well.

Facial Filler Guide: 6 Areas That Can Be Corrected With Filler Injections

For first-timers who are unfamiliar with dermal filler treatments, they’re essentially  anti-aging and facial rejuvenation procedures that use gel-like materials to fill in wrinkles and restore fullness to the sunken areas of the face. Dermal filler injections are also excellent for revitalizing the skin because they stimulate collagen production to restore and repair the skin. 

Mainly due to lost collagen and skin elasticity, the signs of skin aging can manifest on different parts of the face. Here are the common facial aging issues and how cosmetic fillers can help fix them:

Get to Know Your Filler Injectable Options

Consulting with your plastic surgeon or aesthetic provider can help you learn more about the selection of injectable fillers. Your treatment plan will highly depend on your preferred results and it’s crucial to use the appropriate dermal filler for a successful cosmetic injection experience. 

Dermal fillers are available in different forms and are usually categorized according to the materials that they are made of. Here are the types of some of the most used dermal fillers today: 

1. Collagen Filler

Collagen is the most important protein that makes up the skin’s foundation, giving it a youthful soft and elastic appearance. The most common filler injection of this type is made of bovine collagen which is well-known for minimizing wrinkles, fine lines, and targeting  other imperfections such as crow’s feet, smile lines, and nasolabial folds. It also has collagen-boosting effects to replenish what your skin has lost through time and give you  a healthier-looking skin texture. 

2. Hyaluronic Acid or HA Filler

Like collagen, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that is essential for maintaining skin hydration and moisture. This is the most popular filler ingredient found in many known dermal filler products today. HA filler materials usually have a soft gel-like consistency, which makes them perfect for reducing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and produces natural-looking results for cheeks and lip enhancement. However, HA fillers are temporary and can last for up to 6 months until they’re absorbed by the body. 

3. Calcium Hydroxylapatite or CaHA Filler 

This substance is also naturally found in the body, particularly in the bones. Dermal fillers made from calcium hydroxylapatite or CaHA have particles that are suspended in a gel form and usually have a thicker body compared to hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers. With a more solid consistency, CaHA fillers tend to last longer when injected into the skin. They’re also thought to help boost collagen growth to repair skin and erase deep-set wrinkles and fine lines. 

4. Polymethylmethacrylate or PMMA Filler 

PMMA fillers are composed of microscopic beads of polymethylmethacrylate, which are resin substances that have many uses in medical devices such as implants. This type of dermal filler also contains bovine collagen, and the tiny beads will remain under your skin’s foundation to induce collagen growth after the initial collagen filler material has been absorbed by the body. PMMA fillers are approved for treatment of nasolabial folds and correct acne scars. 

5. Polylactic Acid or PLLA Filler

Another facial filler type that’s made of biocompatible and synthetic substances is the poly-l-lactic acid or PLLA dermal filler. PLLA products have been widely used in the medical field in dissolvable stitches. As cosmetic filler treatments, they can be used to treat deep wrinkles and correct signs of facial volume loss. They’re also known to be collagen stimulators which help rejuvenate skin structure and restore optimal skin health from the inside out.

How to Select Between Dermal Fillers and Botox 

Dermal fillers aren’t the only cosmetic injectable that may be offered if you’re looking for anti-wrinkle treatment and skin rejuvenation. Botox injections are another type of facial injection that works by relaxing facial muscles and limiting their contraction to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. To know whether you should get dermal fillers or Botox, here’s what you need to consider: 

  • Get dermal fillers if you: Filler treatments are better at addressing age-related facial volume loss and can smoothen static wrinkles that have already become deeply etched in the skin. Likewise, if you want to see immediate results, dermal fillers are injectable for you. 
  • Get a Botox treatment if you: Botox injections are generally considered as wrinkle relaxers and they work their magic on dynamic wrinkles or those creases that have formed due to repeated facial expressions and muscle movement. Its results can last for 3 to 6 months and can take several weeks before the full effects of the injections become completely visible.
