What are Dermal Fillers?
As we age, we naturally lose facial subcutaneous fat which contributes to volume loss. Dermal or soft tissue fillers are used to fill lines and restore volume. Reducing fine lines and wrinkles with dermal fillers can create contours that help your face look more youthful.
What type of filler is best?
There are several categories of fillers based on what they are made with: Hyaluronic Acid, Calcium Hydroxylapatite, Poly-L-lactic Acid, Polymethylmethacrylate. Additionally, there are several branded products that offer different benefits.
Some of these include:
Restylane® Refyne and Defyne
JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
So which one is right for you?
It’s important to match your cosmetic goals with the type of filler used. Some fillers are better at making deep lines less apparent, while others do a better job at creating volume. The different fillers also have different times of lasting effects.
