AESTHETICS 360°’s Guide to Injectable Fillers


AESTHETICS 360°’s Guide to Injectable Fillers


So you’re considering taking the plunge, or more appropriately, the syringe

Perhaps the reflection in the mirror isn’t reflecting how you feel on the inside. Or maybe some of your friends have been getting facial fillers, & group photos are no longer fun. Where does that leave you? Easy. At AESTHETICS 360° in Milwaukee, WI, Dermal Fillers are used to regain a more youthful look or for contour & enhancement of existing features.


Dermal Fillers: What are they?

Suitable for men & women, Dermal Fillers are being used for different reasons…no matter what your age is! Dermal Fillers are one of the most requested treatments, due to their ease of use & ability to create a variety of improvements. Dermal Fillers help to smooth facial lines & replenish the appearance of lost volume in the face. Fillers can also correct imperfections that aren’t necessarily associated with aging, including facial asymmetries or enhancements to natural features.


Understanding Hyaluronic Acid

AESTHETICS 360° chooses Dermal Fillers in Milwaukee, WI that are FDA approved & made of hyaluronic acid. Called HA for short, hyaluronic acid is a safe, naturally occurring substance that delivers nutrients to the skin & helps retain hydration, softness, & volume. With age, however, the production of HA decreases, leading to sagging skin & a loss of resilience. Cue: Dermal Fillers! The results are temporary, typically lasting anywhere between 6 months to 2 years depending on the product used. HA fillers are infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during treatment.


Common areas of treatment:


First & Foremost: Pick an experienced, certified & skilled injector


It’s easy to think that getting a Dermal Filler treatment is something that can be done by any medical professional, but that’s not the case. When selecting a provider for injectable treatments, give your decision the same level of research that you would for a surgical procedure. Nonsurgical Dermal Filler treatments are still a medical procedure that require specific training knowledge & skill to ensure safe treatment & natural-looking results. Choose a provider with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, a well-developed aesthetic eye, & experience.

A good rule of thumb: Look at your injector! If they’re overdone & unnatural, they’re likely to make you look like that too.

Mid & lower face contouring

When injected into the midface region, Dermal Filler works beneath the skin to lift, add volume, & contour cheeks. The injections improve the overall facial aesthetic with results that are subtle & natural-looking. If you are developing hollows in your cheeks due to weight loss or aging, the same structural fillers can be used to restore volume to give your face a healthy, youthful appearance.

Did you know?

As we age, the proportions of our face change. We go from having a diamond-shaped face, with defined cheeks, to having a drooping face – more like a square – often with heavier jowls & hollow cheeks. The result is skin that sags & cheeks that look hollow & flatter foretelling your age as much as facial wrinkles & lines do. This is called midface volume loss due to aging. If you have cheekbones that lack definition, these sunken features can give you an aged & tired looking appearance.

What else can Dermal Fillers address?

The midface area is critical to the structure & symmetry of the entire face. Any depletion or lack of definition in this area can affect your overall appearance. With Dermal Filler, not only are your cheeks addressed but other parts of the face as well. Though the injections are administered into the mid-to-upper cheek area, they indirectly improve the appearance of adjacent areas.
