5 Facial Areas Fillers Can Improve

While aging is inevitable, medical science has come to the rescue, so we don’t have to live with the effects of getting older. Whether your concerns include stubborn wrinkles, lines around the eyes, or lost volume in the cheeks, dermal fillers can help you.

At Tim Sayed MD Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sayed uses hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to treat his patients in Newport Beach and La Jolla, CA. Hyaluronic acid is a compound found naturally inside the human body and is responsible for hydrating, plumping, and strengthening the skin’s barrier. Its ability to retain moisture makes it the perfect volumizer.

Customizable injectables can smooth wrinkles, add contour, and even fill in scars from past acne, all with zero downtime and immediate results. Where can you benefit from filler injections? Here’s a list of five common areas where Dr. Sayed can help you with fillers.

1. Lips

Thanks to our favorite actors and models, volumizing the lips is probably one of today’s best-known uses for dermal fillers today. Dr. Sayed can customize lip fillers to subtly or dramatically enhance your lips’ natural shape and contour, or to even out texture by filling in lines and creating symmetry.

2. The Cheeks

The cheeks are an area that tends to experience volume loss with age, especially for active people who participate in challenging, high-impact exercises. When expertly injected, dermal fillers can restore volume and the cheeks’ youthful appearance.

3. Wrinkles Around Your Mouth

Mom was right all along – if you keep making that face, it’ll eventually stay that way. You may have deeply etched smile and frown lines that remain visible even when your face is at rest. Injectable fillers minimize wrinkles like parentheses lines and marionette lines with hyaluronic acid for a smooth, glowing, youthful appearance.

4. Undereye Troughs

Whether from aging or genetics, the area underneath the eyes can become increasingly hollow and dark. The skin around your eyes is thin and delicate, making it even more susceptible to lost volume and discoloration. Dr. Sayed uses the smallest needle possible to allow precise filler injections. You will look more awake and rejuvenated than ever before.

5. Acne Scars

Dermal fillers are also incredibly popular for filling in scarring on the face, particularly acne scars. Acne not only causes breakouts that leave your skin red, inflamed, and sensitive, but the evidence of acne can stick around even long after the blemishes are gone. Dr. Sayed can use dermal fillers to carefully fill in deep crevices, pits, and marks left behind by acne. Your makeup will look better, or you can even go completely makeup free with confidence.

Get Ready to Say I Do with These Treatments and Procedures

bridal pre-wedding cosmetic procedures

Now that spring is here; wedding season is just around the corner. With countless brides and grooms preparing their dream wedding, thinking about your self-care and looks can quickly fall to the wayside. Rather than waiting until the last minute, consider adding these treatments and procedures into your wedding prep plans and feel confident when you walk down the aisle.

Cosmetic Treatments

Preparing for your wedding day is a stressful experience. Late nights pulling together guests lists and the emotional toll of dealing with relatives can quickly take a toll on any one’s appearance. The last things you need to be worrying about are new wrinkles or dull-looking skin in photos on your big day. Instead, consider adding these minimally-invasive, non-surgical treatments to your pre-wedding regimen and enjoy your special day worry free.

Botox®

While Botox® is often associated with anti-aging skincare routines, this injectable can be a valuable addition for patients at any age. The treatment temporarily paralyzes muscle-caused wrinkles from deepening and helps smooth existing wrinkles and fine lines across the patient’s face. When applied as a preventive treatment against aging, Botox® can even help slow down the overall aging process, helping the patient enjoy smoother skin longer.

Fillers

Dermal fillers are another popular pre-wedding treatment, particularly for women looking to add a little more volume to their appearance before they head down the aisle. For some, this may mean adding a small amount of filler to lips to create the perfect pout, while others may choose to use dermal fillers to lift sagging cheeks and fill in hollows.

Surgical Solutions

Have more time to prepare for your big day? For many brides and grooms, an upcoming wedding day can be a huge motivator to finally shed stubborn weight and make much-needed changes to their diet and exercise habits. After working hard in the gym and reaching your goal weight, some patients may opt for surgical procedures that showcase their efforts and help them finally reach their ideal body shape.

Some of the most popular pre-wedding minimally-invasive surgical procedures fall under the category of “body sculpting” – treatments that help patients add definition to their figures and gain extra confidence in their figure. These include:

Brazilian Butt Lift:

One of the most popular procedures available, Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBLs) use fat tissue from other parts of your body and add it to your rear, adding an extra lift to sagging behinds. Less invasive than traditional butt implants, BBLs are an excellent option for enhancing curves and redistributing unwanted fat cells elsewhere on your body.

Liposuction

Another popular plastic surgery procedure, liposuction allows patients to remove stubborn fat cells permanently. As the procedure uses an extremely small cannula to remove excess fat cells, the entire treatment is minimally invasive, shrinking down recovery time for patients.

Hi-Def Liposculpture

For some, pre-wedding preparation includes adding definition and sculpting the perfect body. Where liposuction helps smooth out unwanted lumps, hi-def liposculpture uses a combination of ultrasonic vibrations and liposuction to remove fat covering muscle groups and add much-desired definition. Generally recommended for individuals who are already in excellent shape, this procedure is especially popular among men who want to highlight their hard work in the gym and look their absolute best before heading down the aisle and off on their honeymoon.
