Whether you are looking for subtle plumping of your lips or a more defined contour around your cheeks, filler injections can help to enhance and redefine facial features. Filler placement is an art form that requires skill, knowledge, and creativity in order to achieve aesthetically pleasing results. 

Filler injections have come a long way over the years and continue to become increasingly popular and rightfully so! Now it’s super common to see friends and people you know getting filler, when before it seemed like it was only celebrities. These non-surgical treatments can help to smooth wrinkles, restore volume, and contour the face. Popular fillers include hyaluronic acid and collagen, both of which occur naturally in the body. Not only are filler injections safe and effective, but they also offer long-lasting results. In fact, many patients choose to receive regular injections to maintain their youthful glow. So if you’re ready to turn back time and enhance your natural beauty, consider the benefits of filler injections for facial rejuvenation.

In this blog post, we’ll explore the various techniques used by experienced injectors when it comes to filler placement in order to create a natural-looking result that subtly enhances the individual’s facial features. With so many different types of injectables available today, choosing the right product and provider requires careful consideration – but rest assured: beautiful results are well within reach!

How Do Dermal Fillers Work? 

As we age, our body starts to lose collagen. Collagen is an important substance that exists all over our body, including in our skin, muscles, bones, and connective tissues. Decreased amounts of collagen in the skin cause skin laxity (loose) and loss of volume making the skin thinner, with less elasticity, causing it to sag. 

Dermal fillers are a cosmetic treatment that uses injections to add volume and smooth out wrinkles on the face. They are a popular alternative to surgery as they require little downtime and usually only take a few minutes to administer. Dermal fillers can be made from a variety of substances, such as hyaluronic acid or collagen, and they work by binding water molecules in the skin to add volume and plumpness. They are often used to address common signs of aging, such as loss of volume in the cheeks or lips, and can also be used to correct facial asymmetry or scarring. If you are considering dermal fillers, it is important to consult with a qualified professional to ensure that the treatment is appropriate for your individual needs and goals.

Strategic Placement Techniques For Filler

When it comes to dermal filler placement, strategic techniques can have a major impact on the final outcome. It’s so important to understand how to analyze the face and apply different placement techniques to achieve the desired results for each client. One popular technique is the “liquid facelift,” which involves placing filler strategically to restore volume and lift to various areas of the face. Other techniques include the “pillow technique” for the under-eye area and the “Nefertiti lift” for the neck and jawline. By mastering these techniques and understanding how to tailor them to each individual client, you can ensure beautiful and natural-looking results every time.

Dermal fillers can be used in many different areas to improve symmetry among facial features such as: 

  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Temples
  • Forehead
  • Hands
  • Under-eye
  • Chin 
  • Marionette lines

Fillers work to smooth out lines around the nose and mouth, enhance & restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples, diminish vertical lip lines and plump and enhance the lips, smooth out chin crease, and much more, all giving you that natural-looking youthful appearance! 

Dermal Fillers Aftercare

After your treatment, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site, this is normal. The good news is, most of these effects will disappear within 2-3 days, with the exception of lip treatments, which may result in swelling for up to 7 days.

To reduce redness and swelling, try applying cool compresses or ice packs (for 20 minutes per hour) to the affected area for the first 4-6 hours after your injection. Arnica tablets or gel can also help reduce bruising.

If your redness and swelling don’t improve after 3 days, become worse, or are accompanied by other symptoms like increased pain or fever, please contact us immediately.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

The longevity of dermal fillers really depends on the type of filler and the area it’s injected into. Generally, hyaluronic acid fillers (like Juvederm and Restylane) last between 6 months to a year, while more long-lasting fillers (like Sculptra and Radiesse) can last up to two years or more. Keep in mind that other factors like lifestyle, metabolism, and the amount of filler injected can also affect how long your results will last. 

The best way to get more specific information about the longevity of different types of fillers is to talk to your injector during your consultation! They can help you choose the right product for your goals and expectations.

Choosing the Right Injector

When it comes to choosing your injector, you want to choose wisely! Even though filler injections are a non-surgical treatment, it’s important to select a qualified provider who has the expertise, skill, and experience necessary to ensure safe and natural-looking results. 

Just like with surgical procedures, you want to give careful consideration to your decision. That’s why we recommend choosing a provider with a deep understanding of facial anatomy, a keen aesthetic eye, and precision to that of a surgeon. 

Ask to see before and after photos of their previous patients. Also, during your consultation, make sure to ask your questions. This will be the time your injector evaluates your specific needs and determines which will work best for you specifically! This is so important because no two faces are the same, we’re all individually different! 

When you choose your filler treatment provider with confidence, you will be able to enjoy the natural-looking, stunning results!
