The Best Areas for Facial Fillers

When it comes to reversing the signs of aging, facial fillers might feel like the ultimate miracle cure. And they’re certainly an extremely effective way to smooth wrinkles and restore lost volume in your face or lips. But they’re not universally applicable. Other treatments will be more effective for some of the changes you’re seeing in your face.

At Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center, Nikunj Patel, MD, FACC, and our team can help you pinpoint the best aesthetic treatments to help you fend off Father Time. We offer facial fillers like Juvéderm® and Radiesse® alongside other cosmetic injectables like BOTOX®

To help you find out which treatments will be right for you, let’s look at the best areas for facial fillers.

Facial fillers work best on the lower half of your face

Fillers do exactly what their name suggests: They fill in areas where you’ve lost volume. This volume loss occurs because your skin produces less of a protein called collagen as you get older. With less of this protein to serve as a support structure for your skin, you lose fullness and gain skin laxity. 

In the top half of your face, the lost volume doesn’t create many problems. That’s because your skin lays more or less against your skull. But as you move down your face, you have more tissue. With less collagen, this tissue thins. 

This creates a multitude of problems on the lower half of your face, from deep folds around your nose and mouth to thinning lips and hollow cheeks.

Fortunately, facial fillers are specifically designed to address these issues. With these cosmetic injectables, Dr. Patel can replenish volume wherever you need it most in just minutes. Our team uses facial fillers to correct:

In short, anywhere you’re seeing volume loss — and resulting wrinkles — we can use facial fillers to turn back the clock. Plus, getting facial fillers is quick and comes with no downtime. 

Other cosmetic injectables solve other problems

All of this is not to say that you’re stuck with wrinkles on the upper portion of your face. You just need a different treatment to best address those.

Specifically, Dr. Patel offers BOTOX® to smooth dynamic wrinkles, or the wrinkles that form:

Like fillers, BOTOX® is a quick, no-downtime treatment.
