FACIAL CONTOURING WITH DERMAL FILLERS
Dermal Fillers are used to be injected directly into specific areas for facial rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction. Unfortunately an excessive amount of filler injected into a single area produces an overfilled appearance and gives filler a bad reputation as overfilling a specific area distorts the facial harmony.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural ground substance found in human tissue and provides the integrity of skin and underlying tissue. It is now the most commonly used substance in what is commonly known as “filler” to replace lost volume in the facial area, correction of minor deformity and augmentation of specific features such as nasal bridge and chin.
The introduction of the MD code principle transformed the way filler is used. The technique divides the face into different areas and injection into a specific point and region can help with restoration of facial harmony and rejuvenate the facial appearance by reducing wrinkles and droppage of soft tissues. The principle of small volume injection into suspensory points reduces the ‘bloated’ appearance created by single point injection. The other advantage of the MD code principle is that the treatment can be done in separate sessions as additional treatment will act as an adjunct.
Dermal Filler can be injected into different areas to re-contour the specific areas. Fillers are now commonly used for non-surgical rhinoplasty and chin augmentation. Utilization of fillers allow for augmentation without surgical intervention. Other areas in which the fillers are now used for reshaping include the cheek region, temporal hollows and reshaping the forehead. With aging, temple hollowing and ptosis of the cheek tissues take place. Using fillers, these areas can be improved and have an anti-aging effect.
