Maybe you looked in the mirror today and saw that your face doesn’t quite match your energy levels. Perhaps you want just a little more pop in your cheek bones. It’s even possible you want bigger, fuller lips to match your gorgeous smile. Whatever path has lead you here, don’t worry! I’m nurse Kimberly and I’m going to teach you everything you need to know about fillers and get you on the path to looking and feeling like the best version of yourself.
Let’s start with why we age, and what fillers can do to improve appearance and confidence.
As we get older, our faces begin to lose volume. You can look at pictures of any celebrity and see that as the years go by, the face tends to appear longer and more drawn out. This is due to the natural loss in fatty tissue that happens as we age. Cheeks that were once full and youthful look sunken. Bags appear under the eyes. Lips lose their volume and develop wrinkles. Volume loss is a lot like a balloon deflating, the balloon loses its shape and gets wrinkly.
But no worries, this doesn’t have to be the outcome of age. We can use dermal fillers to restore lost volume in the face and make you appear years younger instantly!
And you don’t have to be suffering from age related issues to benefit from fillers! Fillers can be used to take your face to the next level through subtle refinement and balancing of features. Building up the cheek bones, giving the lips some extra volume, and refining the jawline can have an incredible impact on appearance!
Fillers for Facial Restoration
We start by adding back lost volume to the cheeks and work our way down. The goal is to create a triangular and feminine facial structure. It’s important that we fill in the cheeks and do not go straight for an area like the jawline or nasoloabial folds. While they will get treated as well, it’s important to rebuild the facial structure from the top down. If filler is only placed in the chin for example, the face will not have its natural triangular shape restored. I’ve worked for years to perfect the processes and techniques I use and the results speak for themselves! Check out some of our before and after photos below.
Fillers for Enhancement
Fighting back against aging is not the only reason women get fillers! Many patients can benefit from a little bit of extra volume. A large portion of our patients just want a little more pop in their cheek bones or a more refined jawline. With just a few minutes and the touch of a needle, we can volumize and enhance the face, giving it a subtle yet noticeable improvement in structure and balance. Interested in giving your cheek bones some extra contour or making your jawline tighter? Come and see me!
What Product to Use?
Below is a breakdown of the products Cincinnati Plastic Surgery offers and where they can be used. My favorite combination is Bellafill® in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and jaw along with Versa® in the lips and Belotero Balance in the smoker’s lines and under the eyes. This combination is the longest lasting, most affordable, and has the benefit of building collagen in the areas of the face where the loss of volume is greatest.
