Beyond the Lips: Popular Face Areas for Fillers

More than 2.3 million people have their faces filled with plumping products called dermal fillers every year, and the trend keeps rising for good reason — or perhaps we should say, good reasons. 

If you’re thinking about trying one of the many types of dermal fillers available, it’s best to partner with medical professionals trained to know your skin inside and out. Dr. Ritchie Rosso Jr., Dr. Robert Chappell Jr., and our team of experienced dermatologists here at Chappell and Rosso Dermatology and Laser & Aesthetic Center in Odessa, Texas, offer both medical and aesthetic expertise, so you can rest assured your treatment will not only be fabulous, but it will also be completely safe.

Which dermal filler is best?

Because your skin and your body are unique, we offer a wide spectrum of effective dermal fillers that each address different skin issues and approach the job a little differently. 

During our initial consultation with you, we make sure we know your current health status and your medical history, but we also get to know you personally. We talk about your aesthetic goals, what you hope to achieve, and what you expect from your dermal filler treatments.

We also carefully examine your skin and take several variables into consideration, including your age and certain lifestyle habits (like whether you smoke or spend a lot of time in the sun), before recommending which product line will meet your needs. We offer the full line of fillers from the most trusted manufacturers, including:

These each contain slightly different ingredients, typically solutions of hyaluronic acid and collagen, both of which your body already produces to keep your skin plump and youthful. But as you age, you tend to lose these precious elements, and your skin begins to thin out, sag, and wrinkle. 

Dermal fillers fix your whole face

Dermal fillers take care of these problems no matter where they pop up. Here are some of the places and facial areas dermal fillers can help.

Lips

Dermal fillers may be best known for plumping up thin lips, thanks to several celebrities who did it — and overdid it — to give their lips a pouty pucker. Done well, dermal fillers can give you a natural fullness and erase those lines without making you look swollen and overinflated.

Forehead

The forehead is one of the first places you see signs of aging, because it moves, folds, and creases everytime you change your facial expression. The lines you see are called dynamic wrinkles, and we typically recommend Botox® or Dysport® to relax the muscles causing the problem. 

 

But some fillers can also add much-needed support and scaffolding under your skin to smooth out the surface. Depending on your needs, we may recommend a combo treatment. 

Chin

Over time, your chin, like the rest of your body, becomes less defined and loses its shape. Expertly administered dermal fillers can effectively reshape your chin and restore your profile.

Nose

In the same way that dermal fillers chisel your chin, they can also reshape your nose — to a certain degree. Of course, this isn’t rhinoplasty, but fillers can make some subtle changes that improve your proportions without surgery.

Smile lines

Call them smile lines, parentheses, marionette lines, or nasolabial folds, but whatever you call them, we can help diminish them with dermal fillers. These are another example of dynamic wrinkles that can benefit greatly from a neuromodulator like Botox or Dysport, so depending on how deep they are, you might want to address the issue from two different angles at the same time.

Cheeks

A telltale sign of aging is the loss of fullness in your cheeks, causing them to look sunken and sallow. Dermal fillers replace lost volume and effectively lift your cheeks, restoring definition and reducing the look of wrinkles.
