Dermal Fillers to Choose From and What They Can Do For You
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like injections used beneath the skin in order to smooth lines, soften creases, and fix the lost volume. They’re a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery. Millions of men and women benefit from them every year. Here are some of the most common dermal fillers and what they can do for you.
Belotero is a hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is an acid our tissues naturally produce. The aging process causes our bodies to produce less of it, so the skin loses moisture and lubrication. The sugars in hyaluronic acid improve elasticity, fullness, and hydration. This gel fills folds and creases around the mouth and nose. It can restore volume to the face, reducing the signs of aging. The different products in the collection have different consistencies for deep folds and surface lines. Belotero is convenient; there’s no need to undergo allergy testing when you use it. It has a minimal recovery time; you can be back at your activities that day, and the results are almost immediate.
Sculptra is a filler that smooths the skin and stimulates collagen production. Its active ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid. An injectable filler, it restores volume lost due to age or illness. Sculptra produces natural, long-lasting results that can last up to two years.
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler. It adds volume to sunken cheeks, reducing the appearance of age. It also smooths wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and reduces the appearance of creases and deep folds around the mouth. Restylane makes lips divinely luscious and creates a brighter complexion. A treatment lasts about an hour, and you’ll see almost immediate results. The gel breaks down naturally in your body over time.
Juvederm is a product we use that is a smooth, injectable gel filler that lasts. Its active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, so those sugars are going to work to lubricate your skin. It adds volume to your face without surgery. It can correct volume loss related to age in your cheeks, giving a more youthful, rounded look. This product corrects severe wrinkles and folds on your face, nasolabial folds, and is suitable for lip augmentation and correcting the perioral area on the lips.
Radiesse is a dermal filler made with minerals that stimulate collagen production. Because of this, it can have lasting effects even after it wears off. It’s excellent for enhancing volume in the face and the backs of hands. Radiesse reduces the signs of aging temporarily and gives you younger, smoother skin.
