Thanks to fillers, facial contouring and even a mini face lift are now possible and affordable for many people. A nose tip lift, nose reshaping, lifting sagging cheeks, sharpening the jawline or adding volume to the chin can now be performed with minimal downtime. It is however important to use the right type of filler. Whereas a softer filler is suitable for volumizing the cheeks or lips, facial contouring or a mini face lift require a firm hyaluronic acid filler gel.
Why use a firm filler gel for facial contouring?
Whether you are young or more mature, you might want to have a slight modification to enhance your looks, for example reshaping your nose or creating a more pronounced chin.
When reshaping facial features, such as the jaw or chin, or creating a nose tip lift, the filler must stay where it is injected and keep its form. It must also withstand muscle movements to preserve the treatment result.
Why a firm filler gel for a mini face lift?
A firm filler gel is also very suitable for those who have certain age-related changes they wish to remedy, like sagging cheeks.
Many women feel that they end up with sagging cheeks as they get older. This is due to several anatomical changes in the face that come with age. These changes include bone resorption and descending fat pads in the cheeks. Another change is that the facial bones shift with time. For example, the eye sockets can start to descend somewhat.
Sagging cheeks cannot be remedied by just volumizing the cheeks, since different types of tissues are involved. A firm filler might be needed to give shape and structure to sagging cheeks, and this could be likened to a mini face lift. Lifting the cheeks will also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds in the midface.
