Innovative aesthetic wonders like dermal fillers are a hot topic these days, providing both women and men with a way to look younger and refreshed immediately. You may have heard friends, family or even your favourite social media influencer raving about this fantastic nonsurgical cosmetic option.
Dermal fillers offer a safe and cost-effective way to smooth out wrinkles and restore volume to your facial skin without the need for invasive surgery.
On top of that, advancements in recent years have led to the rise of different types of dermal fillers treatments designed to tackle almost every part of the face.
However, in this post, we will focus on the areas most affected by ageing and would benefit the most from a dermal filler procedure.
Here is a look at the top five areas of the face to treat with dermal fillers.
1. Under Eye Area
Have you noticed that the area underneath your eyes has appeared more hollow over the years? Due to having thin and delicate skin, the under eyes region is one of the facial areas affected the most by ageing.
As we get older, our skin experiences a decrease in the collagen that gives our skin structure and volume. You may also experience small levels of bone density loss around your eyes as you grow older.
These contribute to a deep crease forming between the lower eyelid and upper cheek—a tear trough. It can cast a shadow below your eyes or make the bags under the eyes become more visible.
Many people complain that tear troughs give them a tired appearance no matter how much sleep they get and make them look older.
On top of that, the eyes area is among the first places to develop fine lines and wrinkles, also known as Crow’s feet.
Dermal fillers like Itraline are an excellent way to reduce the appearance of tear troughs, fill in the hollowness, reduce bagginess and transform the eye area for a younger, bright-eyed look.
Most of our patients say they look fresher and more awake within hours of their appointment.
Thanks to the small surface area of the under-eye region, this rejuvenating procedure doesn’t require loads of injections and the treatment is done within a few minutes.
2. Around the Mouth
When we get older, we begin to experience a depletion of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin and facial volume loss that often results in deep creases around the mouth area. These facial creases, commonly known as nasolabial folds and marionette lines, can significantly add age to your face and often give the appearance of a sad face.
In a sense, we are stuck in a vicious circle—ageing results in the formation of facial creases, which in turn make us look even older than we are!
Nasolabial folds are the indentation lines on either side of the mouth extending from the nose's edge to the mouth's outer corners.
On the other hand, Marionette lines, also known as puppet lines, are the straight creases that form below each corner of the mouth, causing sagging in the lower part of the face.
Some lifestyle factors such as smoking, genetic predisposition (you have older family members who developed these facial creases early on) and overexposure to sunlight put you at a greater risk of developing nasolabial creases and marionette lines.
The good news is that the mouth area is easily corrected with filler to create a softer, youthful, yet natural look to the face. Facial fillers fill in that lost volume in these creases to instantly take years off your face and restore balance with the rest of the face.
Better still, there's a high likelihood you are eligible for this treatment because we use a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler which is very gentle and well-tolerated by the body.
Cheekbones are the focal point of facial bone structure and are thought to represent 70% of facial beauty. Sadly, with age, the cheeks can become hollow in appearance or look deflated, resulting in the loss of youthful contours to the midface.
Re-volumizing the cheeks with filler creates better facial symmetry, improves dimensions, and adds more definition to the cheekbone area.
This 3D facial contouring effect is the main reason why even people who are yet to experience significant signs of ageing — those in their early 20s and early 30s— are turning to cheek fillers.
Cheek fillers can also smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. This creates an overall younger-looking face without traditional facelift surgery, which is invasive & requires a significant recovery period.
When administered correctly, cheek fillers add an attractive, natural plump to your cheeks. That's why it's always important to do research and work with a professional who has a deep knowledge of facial anatomy and has an artistic eye for a pleasant natural result.

The sad reality is that our lips get thinner and lose their natural definition with age! In fact, our lips start deflating when we hit 30 and then continue to thin out and head downhill (quite literally) after that.
But you can use dermal fillers to reverse these pesky effects of ageing and change the visual cues of how you and other people perceive your age.
That said, we can’t ignore the fact that lip fillers have gotten a pretty bad rap over the past decades for being one of the most obvious and frequently botched cosmetic procedures.
Despite the frequent association with overfilling (the main reason behind those humongous lips that overtake nearly every other facial feature), lip filler treatments can be easily customized to achieve a subtle enhancement to the natural shape of the lips.
Even more, women who genetically have a thin upper lip can have a more contoured, symmetrical look with help from dermal fillers.
An experienced cosmetic doctor will also know exactly how much filler to inject into each lip. Often, the bottom lip requires more, while the top lip only requires a tiny amount. This ensures that you end up with a subtle yet attractive natural look. After all, you don’t want it to be obvious that you have had fillers put in!
Getting your lip augmentation procedure with the experts at Dr Aesthetica will ensure you achieve the exact result you desire.
Just a few years ago, if you wanted a smaller, straighter or smoother nose, you had only one option—go under the knife.
But with injectable fillers taking the aesthetics industry world by a storm, you may have come across non-surgical rhinoplasty or any of its other numerous nicknames such as "liquid nose job", "15-minute nose job", or "3 point Rhino".
Getting a non-surgical nose job is not necessarily performed for anti-ageing purposes. Nevertheless, it's one of the most impactful dermal filler treatments, so we decided to include it in the list.
This procedure is ideal for people who are looking to address issues like a dorsal hump and asymmetry.
By filling the area around a nose bump, you can achieve a perfectly straight nose. You can also use dermal fillers to correct a droopy tip (filler will help lift it up) and mildly crooked noses (filler will correct any sharp angles). What if you want a smaller looking nose? You can even use dermal fillers to create an optical illusion of having a smaller nose.
A liquid nose job can significantly improve a patient's side profile. The procedure will be customized to your unique preferences and desired results.
If, for whatever reason, you don't like the outcome following a non-surgical nose job procedure, there's an option to have the results reversed.
