Looking for a quick and effective way to erase years off your appearance? Then it’s time to take advantage of fillers – one of the most popular techniques for improving facial wrinkles while adding youthful facial contours.
Fillers have been a staple in plastic surgery practices for many years. As a result of their popularity, several brands have created their own versions of fillers, each with different formulas and functions designed to provide a more youthful appearance. But with all that choice comes questions, like:
“Which Dermal Filler Should I Choose?”
Let’s take a quick look at a few popular fillers to see which one is the right option for you:
- Restylane: This filler contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound that promotes collagen production while increasing the skin’s ability to retain moisture. Restylane is an excellent injectable for treating deep folds, wrinkles, and volume loss, particularly those around the nose and mouth. Results can last for up to 12 months.
- Voluma: This filler (made by Juvederm) is similar to Restylane in that it contains hyaluronic acid. However, the injectable gel is thicker than other dermal fillers, as it’s designed to add volume to cheeks that appear hollow or sunken-in. Voluma can also minimize the appearance of deeper wrinkles and lines in the cheek, which helps create a youthful appearance that lasts for about 12 months.
- Belotero: This filler also contains Hyaluronic acid but is much thinner than most of the other available fillers. It is a great choice for patients who want to treat fine facial wrinkles, and areas where a filler is needed very close to the skin. Typical locations include under the eyes and mild facial wrinkles. You can expect it to last anywhere from 6 to 12 months.
