Which Filler for Me?

face injectionYou always hear the word “filler” but did you know that there are several different types out there? Dermal fillers typically contain either hyaluronic acid, calcium-based microspheres, or poly-L-lactic acid. Each filler is unique and meant for a particular area of the face or hands.  Before choosing one you should always consult with a board certified dermatologist to determine which filler will work best for you. Below are the dermal fillers we use in our practice

RESTYLANE is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body to provide volume and fullness to the skin. It provides instant softening of facial folds and wrinkles, and can be used to sculpt the lips.

JUVÉDERM is a smooth, hyaluronic acid-based injectable gel filler that fills lines and wrinkles from beneath the skin and enhances the lips. It’s especially effective on nasolabial folds, but it can be used throughout the face.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC uses hyaluronic acid. VOLUMA XC is specifically formulated with a thicker gel to add volume to the cheeks for a fuller, more youthful appearance. Voluma results can last up to 2 years.

RADIESSE works with your body, below the skin’s surface. This filler contains tiny calcium-based microspheres that form a scaffold to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen.

SCULPTRA Aesthetic, injectable poly-L-lactic acid, is a unique biostimulator that targets the underlying cause of the signs of facial aging: volume loss. Sculptra works within the deep dermis to stimulate the individual’s own natural collagen formation. As the collagen is replaced, it provides a foundation that gradually restores the fullness by correcting facial hollowing. Sculptra replaces collagen, restores volume, and refines lines. These natural-looking results can last up to 2 years.

BELOTERO BALANCE is a unique hyalauronic acid dermal filler made up of the same volumizing and moisturizing component of your skin that integrates into your tissue to provide subtle and even results. It is specifically designed to treat those superficial, fine lines and wrinkles like those delicate areas around the mouth.
