When you think about fillers like Restylane, what’s the first injection site that comes to mind? We’re guessing your thoughts go to fuller lips or diminished smile lines. It’s true that the Restylane family of products has proven effective in reversing some of the most common signs of aging in the face. Recently, however, people have been using fillers in some areas you may not have previously considered.
It seems like most of the anti-aging treatments you see on the market today target specific areas of the face, but your body shows aging in other areas, too. Here are some alternative areas of the body that have shown positive results when treated with fillers:
Fillers for Hands
We’ve mentioned before that Restylane is among our favorite fillers (could you tell?). Most recently, the FDA approved it to add volume to the hands. As you age, your hands tend to get a sunken look, causing the bones and knuckles to protrude - and your hand is the first thing people look at when they shake your hand. It's surprising how much a hand treatment can take years off your overall appearance!
Fillers for Necks and Jawlines
The skin on your neck and jaw tends to get crepey and sag as you age. You may notice some deep lines where your neck folds that continue to develop with age. You may also come to develop “jowls” down from the corners of your mouth. Rather than undergoing invasive plastic surgery, your medical esthetician may recommend a filler to use around the trouble areas to give them a subtle fill and lift.
Fillers for Earlobes
That’s right - we said earlobes. But if you wear earrings every day, your ears will begin to droop and sag beneath their weight, as insignificant as they may seem. If you’re self-conscious about your earlobes, your Galderma injection specialist can recommend the right filler to add volume and make your earlobes seem “perkier.”
Injectables and fillers are so versatile in their applications and their effects. Restylane is made from hyaluronic acid, a compound naturally found in the body that provides hydration and plumpness. A practiced injector like Dr. Samano can create results that look subtle and natural. To book your consultation, give us a call at 321-397-0692 today.
