Some Uncommon Uses For Cosmetic Fillers!
POSTED ON TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 2016 AT 1:30 PM by Dr. Jody Levine
Dermal fillers are an effective option for volumizing various parts of the face to improve wrinkles or fine lines. However, did you know these non-invasive treatments can be used on other areas, as well? Cosmetic injectables are particularly useful for improving sagging earlobes, hollow temples, and gaunt hands! At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we offer different types of dermal fillers to properly address these conditions.
Improve Sagging Earlobes!
Over time, the effects of gravity may take their toll on the natural shape and contour of your earlobes. Aging, as well as the applied weight of earrings, can cause earlobes to sag downward, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm®, Belotero®, or Restylane®, are carefully injected into the earlobe to reduce fine lines and improve sagging. Cosmetic injectables can achieve plump earlobes in as little as 20 minutes.
Volumize Hollow Temples!
Your temples may become hollow as you get older, resulting in a loss of youthful-looking volume. The temples are located above the cheekbones. Loss of definition in these areas can take away from the rest of your facial profile and hairline. Strategically-placed cosmetic injectables can restore lost volume around the temples and achieve a fuller-looking facial profile.
Rejuvenate Your Hands!
The hands are the second most-commonly seen part of your body after your face. As a result, they are an important part of your day-to-day routine and interactions. Additionally, they are more prone to the effects of sun damage than less-visible parts of the body. The sun’s rays, as well as the natural aging process, can strip away younger-looking definition from the hands, causing underlying veins to become more prominent. Cosmetic injections use hyaluronic acid—a natural substance found in the body—to restore volume to the hands by filling in wrinkles. Thanks to cosmetic injectables, patients can minimize vein patterns under the surface of the skin without any downtime.
