5 Ways Dermal Fillers are Used for Nonsurgical Cosmetic Treatments

Dermal fillers can be utilized for many cosmetic treatments. They can be used to shape and sculpt the face for a more aesthetically pleasing look, without the pain or downtime associated with surgery. Individual Results Will Vary.

Dermal Fillers can be used:


  1. To Straighten Nose Bumps and Enhance the Nasal Bridge

Dermal Fillers can be used to straighten the nose during a treatment called Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty. Also known as a non-surgical nose job, Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty utilizes the benefits of dermal fillers to make subtle yet beneficial changes to the nose and profile of the face. While Non-Surgical rhinoplasty cannot decrease the size of the nose, it can provide improved contour and profile. This treatment delivers the benefits of no incisions and not using general anesthesia, however, the results are not permanent and will need to be repeated every 12-24 months. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty is ideal for those looking for a more attractive nose without the downtime and price tag of a traditional surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. Malik uses a blunt cannula to inject Juvederm Voluma XC for your safety and comfort.

A week jaw-line leads to poor face-to-neck transition. Similarly, week cheekbones lead to Those with an undesirably week jawline can benefit from dermal filler injections during a Non-surgical Jaw Enhancement treatment. Careful placement of dermal fillers like Juvederm Voluma XC or Radiesse+ with a blunt cannula can be used to enhance the week jaw-line for a well-defined shaped face. This treatment may be an option for those who wish to slim the face by reducing the size of the masseter muscle without invasive surgery and the high costs associated with it.



  1. To Treat “Gummy Smiles”

A smile is classified as gummy when more than 2 mm of gum shows during a full smile. Factors that lead to a gummy smile are benign and hereditary, however, many choose to treat the smile so it has a more aesthetically pleasing look. Traditionally the only way to treat a gummy smile was an invasive and painful surgery to either trim down excessive gum lines or to reposition the upper jaw through orthognathic surgery. Thankfully, that is no longer the only option. During a Non-Surgical Gummy Smile Treatment, dermal fillers are injected into 2-3 very small areas to accomplish a very pleasing result. The procedure is done quickly and in office. After two weeks, patients return for a follow up visit and may receive a touch up at that time if needed. After that, Gummy Smile Treatment will need to be up-kept every 3-4 months to maintain results.


  1. To Enhance the Chin

A strong chin is a pivotal element of a well-balanced and properly proportioned face. If the chin is weak, it can cause the nose to look larger than it should, as well as the neck to appear ill-defined. Dermal fillers can be used to strengthen the chin in a treatment known as Non-Surgical Chin Enhancement . During this treatment, injections are placed in the chin area with a small needle then massaged to smooth the results. This quick, 15-minute treatment, has the benefits of surgical changes without the pain and downtime that occurs with surgical interventions.



  1. To give a Facelift Type Effect

Dermal fillers can even be used to reduce deep wrinkles and folds in the skin, as well as improve contour and give a lift to the cheeks. A Liquid Facelift involves injecting dermal fillers and neuromodulators into carefully selected regions of the face. When the facial contours are lifted, natural tightening occurs giving the patient an all over more youthful and refreshed look.
