Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic enhancement that can provide you with a youthful look without surgery or scarring. From eyebrows to cheeks to lips, dermal fillers can give you a more contoured look to your face.
If you’ve done your homework, you’ll probably notice there are different fillers available. Based on your particular aesthetic goals, there may be procedures and fillers that are more appropriate for you.
Juvéderm is one of the most popular brands of fillers. Lasting from 6 to 12 months, depending on the maintenance, this filler adds volume to facial tissue to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm is very effective for areas with thin skin because it can be used close to the skin’s surface. Because of this, many men and women use Juvéderm to fill fine lines around the nose and outside of the mouth, the smile lines or “parentheses.” Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella XC can be used for lips, as well as creating a higher, more contoured cheek area. Voluma XC lasts the longest, about 2 years, and is specifically formulated to restore age-related loss of volume in the cheek area for a more youthful appearance.
Restalyne is best for deep lines, moderate to severe folds and wrinkles, and other types of cosmetic facial issues. Restylane can restore plumpness and volume to the skin and lips for up to 18 months. Restalyne Defyne and Refyne are designed to treat laugh lines. Restylane Silk is commonly used as a lip filler. Restalyne Lyft adds lift and volume to the cheeks while also correcting severe wrinkles.
Radiesse stimulates the growth of collagen and adds volume under the skin before being absorbed into the body. With effects that last one year or more, it’s commonly used to treat facial wrinkles and folds. It can correct volume loss in your hands with smooth, natural-looking results, as well as plump up cheeks.
Belotero Balance is an extremely light formula made with a synthetic hyaluronic acid. It can be applied to a higher level of the skin. Because it’s so light, it’s dubbed as a “starter filler” and many patients will opt for this dermal filler for their first injections. It can last up to 6 months.
Sculptra was designed to plump and shape the face, especially for patients with genetically sunken cheeks and eyes or a low body weight. It is a synthetic lactic acid made from poly-L-lactic acid that the body gradually absorbs over time, with effects that can last for up to a year.
