Discover the Art of Facial Contouring with Dermal Fillers 

Last Modified: August 15, 2023

In the realm of aesthetics, facial symmetry and balance are often considered key determinants of physical attractiveness, playing a significant role in enhancing one's visual appeal and confidence. The natural ageing process may disrupt facial harmony as collagen production diminishes and volume is lost, leading to sagging and hollowing. Dermal fillers offer an advanced solution to restore facial balance and achieve a more youthful and harmonious appearance. At Dr Aesthetica, a multi-award-winning medical aesthetic clinic in Birmingham, our team of skilled practitioners specialises in the art of facial contouring using dermal fillers, ensuring an improvement of natural proportions and youthful vitality.

In this detailed guide, we will explore the ways in which dermal fillers can be strategically employed to sculpt and revitalise the face for a more symmetrical, balanced result. We will discuss the range of dermal filler treatments available at Dr Aesthetica, focusing on the areas most commonly targeted to enhance facial harmony. Additionally, understanding the factors contributing to facial balance and the benefits of dermal fillers will provide readers with the knowledge to make informed decisions about whether these treatments are the right choice for their aesthetic goals.

Join us as we delve into the world of dermal fillers and their transformative potential for achieving facial balance, guided by the expertise and precision of the team at Dr Aesthetica. Embark on a journey towards greater confidence and a more harmonious, youthful visage.

Dermal Fillers: An Overview and Their Applications

Dermal fillers are smooth, injectable gels composed of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in the skin responsible for maintaining hydration, plumpness, and elasticity. As we age, our hyaluronic acid levels decrease, leading to wrinkles, sagging, and diminished facial volume.

When skillfully injected, dermal fillers restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours for a more youthful and harmonious appearance. Applications include sculpting the cheeks, lips, and jawline, as well as addressing nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and tear troughs.

Key Principles of Facial Balance

To appreciate how dermal fillers can enhance facial symmetry and harmony, it is vital to understand the guiding principles of facial balance:

1. Vertical and horizontal proportions: Ideally, the facial structure can be divided into thirds vertically (forehead, nose-eyebrow, and lip-chin) and fifths horizontally, with the eyes, nose, and mouth occupying approximately one fifth each.

2. Angles and curves: The angles and curves within the face contribute to an aesthetically pleasing appearance, with the ideal jawline forming an angle close to 110 degrees.

3. Facial volume and contour: Balanced distribution of volume across the face, including fullness in the cheeks, smooth nasal-labial lines, and a well-defined jawline, contribute to a youthful, harmonious appearance.

Enhancing Facial Symmetry with Dermal Fillers

At Dr Aesthetica, our skilled practitioners employ dermal fillers to strategically address imbalances and restore harmonious proportions, including:

1. Cheek augmentation: Dermal fillers can add volume to the midface, creating more prominent cheekbones and lifting sagging skin to improve facial contours.

2. Lip enhancement: Fillers can balance asymmetrical lips, increase fullness, and refine the vermillion border for a more-defined pout.

3. Jawline contouring: By adding volume and definition to the jawline, fillers can create a more sculpted and angular appearance, promoting facial harmony.

4. Nose reshaping: Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as liquid rhinoplasty, uses dermal fillers to make subtle modifications to the nose shape, improving symmetry, and correcting minor irregularities.

Dermal Filler Treatment Process and Aftercare

Your journey towards enhanced facial harmony at Dr Aesthetica begins with a detailed consultation, during which our practitioners assess your facial structure and discuss your goals and concerns. Armed with this information, they will develop a tailored treatment plan, ensuring the most natural and harmonious results.

During the treatment session, the practitioner will cleanse your skin and administer dermal fillers using a fine needle or cannula. Although you may experience mild discomfort, most clients find the process tolerable, and topical numbing agents may be used if needed. The session typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the treatment area, and you can return to your daily activities with minimal downtime.

After your treatment, it is essential to follow the practitioner's aftercare advice, which may include avoiding excessive sun exposure, heat, and rigorous exercise for the first 24 hours. Some redness, swelling, or bruising may occur at the injection site, but these side effects are typically mild and subside within a week.


Achieving facial symmetry and balance with dermal fillers is a safe and effective option for those seeking a more youthful, harmonious appearance. By understanding the key principles of facial balance and engaging the expertise of skilled practitioners like those at Dr Aesthetica, clients can ensure natural-looking, transformative results that boost confidence and enhance their appearance.
