The Best Dermal Fillers & Injectables for Dark Skin Tones

Whether your skin is light-toned or dark, we all face challenges in maintaining a youthful look. With dark skin, wrinkles are typically less visible, but creases and folds become more apparent with age. Also, there may be undereye hollows and voids in the cheek areas. Horizontal lines may also appear across the forehead. 

Non-surgical aesthetic treatments are becoming more and more popular when it comes to keeping us looking vibrant and young. Many men and women find that, whatever their skin tone, injectables, and dermal fillers are effective in resolving their cosmetic concerns. The approach for facial beauty is different for patients who have darker skin tones than those who have a lighter complexion. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Florence Mussat offers dermal fillers and injectables that help her patients retain facial beauty without surgery. Here are some excellent products for patients with darker skin tones.


Botox is a neuromodulator that is effective in reducing horizontal lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes. The product renders immobile the underlying muscles that trigger expressions, which causes these fine lines to diminish or disappear. These treatments also prevent the deepening of existing lines and can keep new wrinkles from forming. In fact, Botox has become the most popular aesthetic treatment worldwide and can enhance the appearances of women and men with darker skin tones who seek cosmetic improvement.

Dermal Fillers

To increase facial fullness and add volume, Dr. Mussat offers injectable dermal fillers. She provides a wide range of products in the Restylane and Juvederm lines of facial fillers to diminish folds and sagging skin. Each of these products will accomplish different results, and treatments are fully customized to best benefit each patient. For instance, patients who need help with sagging skin may best be served with a series of Restylane injections for excellent results. For those who have jowls beginning to emerge, Juvederm and Restylane offer solutions that will enhance the jawline. For marionette lines or nasolabial folds, Juvederm Vollure can smooth out the skin to create a more youthful texture. Precise placement of a number of different products can erase years from the face in a single session.

Making the Right Choice

When choosing a dermal filler or injectable for cosmetic correction, it’s crucial to understand that the benefits are temporary, and at some point, you may prefer a surgical procedure like an eyelid lift, brow lift, or facelift. But until that time comes, you can find satisfaction from additional injections once the results begin to wane. It’s important to find the right medical professional to help you understand your options and choose the best plan for you to achieve your cosmetic goals.
