Where can dermal fillers go?
Lip filler is the most common dermal filler treatment with the cheeks being a close second, but the filler magic doesn’t stop there. Common treatment areas for dermal filler include the under the eyes, cheeks, lips, cheekbones, nasolabial folds (or smile lines), marionette lines, jawline, and chin.
You can typically think of dermal fillers going in areas from the eyes down and wrinkle relaxers, like Botox, going from the eyes up. But that isn’t a hard and fast rule. Places like the temples and neck can also work well with fillers to add volume or address fine lines in the neck, also known as “tech neck.”
Imagine any place where you have depression or subcutaneous fat and volume loss– those areas could be great places for filler.
Maybe it’s an irregularity in your skull, jaw, or chin or you’ve noticed your cheekbones aren’t as prominent due to aging. Fillers can work well to build up bone structure and address asymmetry.
What do fillers do?
Dermal filler injections restore volume, address asymmetry, and mimic bone structure. Fillers made from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occuring in the body, even add moisture to the skin.
Are all dermal fillers the same?
Not all dermal fillers are the same. Some fillers are better suited for soft areas like the lips and cheeks, while others have more structure and work well to mimic bone in areas like the cheekbones, jawline, and chin.
Two common types of dermal fillers used by the licensed injectors of Amelia Aesthetics Raleigh are:
- Hyaluronic acid
- Calcium hydroxylapatite
Because fillers offer such a variety of results, they are really customizable to your anatomy and aesthetic goals.

How do I know where is best to get fillers?
Creating a dermal filler treatment plan isn’t as obvious as you may think. The good news is a lot of Medspas offer virtual consultations so you can get an idea of what is best for you, before scheduling an in-office treatment.
Dermal filler treatments should be intentional, keeping in mind your anatomy and goals, to ensure you achieve your desired results with no complications.
You want to ensure your licensed injector is really taking a holistic approach and strategically placing filler to rejuvenate and balance the face, which may include multiple syringes in different areas or a mix of dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers.
In other words, it’s okay if you don’t know exactly what you need before your consultation. In the hands of a skilled, licensed, and experienced injector, you can rest assured that you’ll safely get the results you’re looking for.
