Surprising Uses of Dermal Fillers
Sure, you knew dermal filler injections were the go-to procedures for getting rid of facial lines and wrinkles. But did you know these injections are being used for other purposes as well? If you have grown to love the results from Juvederm®, Voluma® or Radiesse®, check out several other ways some physicians are using these dermal fillers. Of course, these treatments are considered “off-label” but that doesn’t necessarily mean trained physician injectors cannot safely perform them for alternative purposes.
- Say Good-Bye to Old Lady Hands – Do you hate the way your hands are giving away your true age? If you have thin skin with exposed veins and tendons, dermal filler injections into the hands just under the skin may plump and smooth out the hand to eliminate any signs of aging. Fat grafting may also be utilized for the purpose of hand rejuvenation along with either IPL laser treatments or CO2 fractionated laser skin resurfacing to remove sun damage and age spots.
- Give Your Feet Relief – Many women are starting to find benefit from dermal fillers in the feet. Precise dermal injections can offer additional padding on the balls of the feet to make walking more comfortable.
- Rev Up Your G-Spot –This use for dermal fillers is one that some doctors and many women swear by! After injecting the G-spot, orgasms suddenly become more intense and pleasurable. And here’s the really good news – women can return to normal activities within 24 hours after treatment.
