Uses for Dermal Fillers You May Not Know


Even the word just makes a lot of people cringe, so looking towards dermal fillers for that makes sense. But did you know that dermal fillers can be used for much more than just those pesky wrinkles? Here are a few more uses that may just surprise you!

Say Goodbye to Acne Scars

Dealing with acne is really only half the battle for some. After the acne is resolved, then come the deep scars that can be with you for a lifetime. Although laser and chemical peels may work for some, certain deeper scars may not be affected, which is where dermal fillers come in handy. Dermal fillers will essentially fill in the space behind the scar, creating a fuller look on your face!

Fill Your Hollow Temples

It’s not often that you take the time to view your temples and how they impact your overall look. As one begins to age, the temples begin to develop a hollow look and the bones around them become more prominent. With this comes a more “sickly” look for an otherwise healthy individual. Using fillers here will allow you to develop a fuller look around your temples, giving a younger glow for some!

Get Rid of Saggy Earlobes

After a while of wearing heavy earrings, or just dealing with age naturally, your earlobes can start to sag. Or, if you’re someone with tiny earlobes, you may just be seeking a new look. Either way, fillers can help rejuvenate your earlobes and give them a younger, fuller appeal!

Give Yourself a Hand

If you’ve ever looked down at your hands, you’ll notice that they certainly wear age. With fillers, you can add more volume to your hands to give them a smooth, youthful look! No more prominent bones, tendons, and veins!

Of course, there are many more uses for dermal fillers, so it’s important to talk to Dr. Leslie Kardos to see if there are any other options. Give us a call today at (415) 426-7859 to set up an appointment!
