Top 3 Filler Procedures in 2020

Dermal fillers are one of the most popular treatments in aesthetic dermatology, and it’s no secret that our very own Dr. Munk loves to use them to treat volume loss and enhance features. The philosophy at MunkMD is less about changing the way you look, and more about augmenting the beauty you already have!

Fillers are an injectable treatment primarily made up of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in youthful skin. As we age, the hyaluronic acid diminishes, resulting in less hydration and volume. Using fillers not only replaces the volume, smoothing out wrinkles in the process, but also stimulates the skin to encourage natural collagen production.

Injections with fillers are quick and well tolerated; there is anesthetic mixed into the fillers, allowing for a more comfortable procedure with little to no recovery. The natural and beautiful effects that can be achieved make the treatment well worth it!

Let’s take a closer look at the top three filler procedures for 2020!

1. Lip Filler
If you want plump and balanced lips, look no further! Lip augmentation is the most popular filler treatment on the market today. From consultation to completed treatment, the whole process takes around 40 minutes. The best part? No downtime! Apply ice and avoid exercise for two days, and you’re good to go. Lip fillers can be expected to last between six to eight months.

When getting a lip augmentation, you should have reasonable expectations. Don’t expect Kylie lips if you have thin lips to begin with. Enhance and highlight your natural features instead of hoping to look like someone else.

2. Nose Filler
Another popular filler treatment are nose fillers, also called nonsurgical nose jobs. This treatment is very popular because it provides the chance to tweak the appearance of the nose without committing to a surgery. Like all fillers, nose fillers are not permanent. Results are instant and last about 12 months. Unlike a rhinoplasty, nose fillers are purely aesthetic (meaning they will not resolve breathing issues). Nose fillers are best at addressing minor details. such as smoothing a hump or refining the tip of the nose.

It’s important to go to a professional for nose fillers, because the nose is a central feature and balances the face. Make sure your injector is medically certified and has knowledge of the underlying anatomy of the face.

3. Eyes Filler (Tear Trough)
People say the eyes are the windows to the soul, and that is why fillers around the eyes are also very popular! Fillers can be used to reduce wrinkles around the eyes and to fill the tear troughs, also known as hollows under the eyes.

This treatment is super subtle but will help brighten the face and make you look refreshed and less tired. As with all filler treatments, the procedure is quick and comfortable. For this sensitive area, Dr. Munk might use a cannula to make only one point of entry, reducing the chance of bruising. The instant results last around 12 months.

These are the top three treatments performed with fillers, but there are many other ways this quick and comfortable treatment can enhance your features by adding volume or smoothing wrinkles. For more information or to book your personalised consultation with Dr. Munk, contact us today!
