For many of those patients, their filling technique is surprising. A young face has the “triangle of youth”, which means that it is wider on the cheeks just below the eyes and narrower on the chin. But over time, tissue and bone are lost in the middle of the face. With a deflated support system, the skin begins to sag and the face slowly transforms from triangle to trapezoid. Fillers counteract this aging process by adding fullness to the cheeks, which restores the skin to its original position, smoothing nasolabial folds (smile lines), puppet lines (folds that go from the corner of the mouth to the chin) and the double chin.

If you're worried that a recent treatment has used more filler than necessary, in most cases it's possible to fully or partially reverse the effect by applying an enzyme (hyaluronidase) to dissolve excess filler. Dermal fillers use injectable hyaluronic acid to fill and adjust contours of any area of the face that needs correction but dermal fillers are not permanent solutions.
Men and women looking for smoothing effect of dermal fillers seek to restore lost facial volume in areas such as cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds and under eyes. Although their skin is naturally more resilient they are more likely to continue using fillers for many years in future and stretching is more likely to occur longer dermal fillers are used.
