All About Fillers: Which One is Right For You?
As we age, our faces do things we don’t like so much – namely droop, sag, and wrinkle. It may seem as if no matter how many creams, serums, and lotions you use, nothing is restoring the youthfulness and tightness of your face. If this is a problem you’re facing, fillers may be a great option for giving you a tighter, smoother facial appearance. But which filler should you choose? There are many options to choose from, so keep reading to find the perfect filler for you:
Is a long-lasting, soft tissue injectable that triggers the body to produce its own collagen to fill lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume. As we age, our skin thins, and we lose fat and bone volume in our faces.. Sculptra® injections work to correct these issues. The injections look very natural due to their natural collagen building activity, and have longevity between 2-3 years.
Is a dermal filler that restores a natural, youthful look with a longer lasting result than standard soft tissue fillers. Radiesse® typically lasts up to 2-3 years, and is easily injected to the nasolabial folds, around the mouth, in acne scars, and other soft tissue defects with minimal local anesthetic as an office procedure.
Is a new dermal filler made of natural collagen, that has been naturally cross-linked to mimic the natural structure of the body’s own collagen. Evolence® is best for moderate to deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, along with areas that require lifting such as the corners of the mouth and lateral eyebrows. Injections are very comfortable, with immediate results, and last through 12 months.
Is a natural soft tissue dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles, fill folds (nasolabial folds), and add youthful volume to the lips, earlobes, and hollows beneath the lower eyes. Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid and maintains its shape and volume by attracting and binding water. This filler is a naturally occurring substance in the body, hence does not illicit allergic reactions. Injections generally last 4 to 6 months, and accordingly treatments are scheduled approximately twice a year.
Is a naturally occurring injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is injected into the skin to provide volume and hydration. Juvederm® injections correct mild to severe facial wrinkles including crows feet and wrinkles around the mouth, along with correction of nasolabial folds. Juvederm® utilizes a new cross-linking technology that enables a very smooth and natural appearing result, with injected areas retaining volume from to 6-12 months, with layering techniques lasting longer.
