Dermal fillers are commonly used in various areas of the face to restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance features. Here are some common areas where dermal fillers are often applied:

Facial Lines and Wrinkles

  1. Nasolabial Folds: These are the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. They are among the most common areas treated with dermal fillers.
  2. Marionette Lines: These lines run from the corners of the mouth down toward the jawline and can give a person a ‘down-turned’ appearance.
  3. Glabellar Lines: These are the frown lines between the eyebrows.
  4. Crow’s Feet: These are lines at the outer corners of the eyes.
  5. Forehead Lines: Horizontal lines across the forehead can also be treated, although this area is more commonly addressed with Botox.

Volume and Contouring

  1. Cheeks: Fillers can add volume to the cheeks, which may become hollow or flat with age.
  2. Jawline: Dermal fillers can be used to define the jawline or to soften the appearance of a square jaw.
  3. Chin: Fillers can be used to project the chin or improve its shape.


  1. Vermilion Border: This is the outline of the lips. Fillers can define the lips and make them more distinct.
  2. Lip Body: For fuller lips, filler is often injected into the body of the upper and lower lips.
  3. Cupid’s Bow: This is the V-shaped area in the center of the upper lip, which can also be enhanced with filler.

Other Areas

  1. Tear Troughs: These are the hollows under the eyes that can make a person look tired or older. However, treating this area requires expertise, as it is close to the eye.
  2. Nose: Sometimes referred to as a ‘non-surgical nose job,’ fillers can be used to subtly alter the shape of the nose.
  3. Temples: Hollowing in the temples can be filled in to provide a more youthful appearance.
  4. Hands: While not a facial area, the back of the hands is another common site for filler injections to restore lost volume.
