Dermal Fillers: A Simple Guide

Dermal fillers offer a quick, effective and non-invasive approach to facial rejuvenation by restoring lost volume and fullness.

Also known as facial fillers, dermal fillers can erase shallow lines and wrinkles, soften deep creases, plump thinning lips, improve the look of sunken scars, contour the jawline and add volume to the cheeks. A number of these cosmetic injectables can provide you with a rejuvenated, youthful appearance.

Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers

Facial fillers that are made of hyaluronic acid are among the most popular, as they are made from a substance found naturally in the body. Cosmetic injectables also offer immediate results that last about six to 12 months. Each product works differently and is designed to target certain facial areas.

Hyaluronic acid facial fillers include:

  • Belotero Balance®
  • Juvederm® XC
  • Juvederm® Ultra XC
  • Juvederm Volbella® XC
  • Juvederm Vollure® XC
  • Juvederm Voluma® XC
  • Restylane®
  • Restylane® Defyne
  • Restylane-L®
  • Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine
  • Restylane® Refyne
  • Restylane® Silk

Structural Dermal Fillers

Structural facial fillers stimulate natural collagen production to restore lost volume and give the skin greater strength and elasticity. A few treatments may be necessary to see the full effect from these cosmetic injectables, but the results last up to two years.

Facial fillers in this group include:

  • Radiesse®
  • Radiesse® (+)
  • Sculptra® Aesthetic

Getting Great Results from Dermal Fillers

Facial fillers are safe and effective for most patients, providing results that look natural. But you can take steps to help ensure your desired outcome from cosmetic injectables.

For the best results, don’t let price determine your choice of facial fillers. With a wide range of formulas and strengths available, treatment must be tailored to meet your specific facial rejuvenation goals. While cost is certainly a factor when selecting cosmetic injectables, it shouldn’t be your only consideration.

In addition, treatment with facial fillers should only be completed in a medical setting by a skilled and experienced nurse injector or cosmetic facial surgeon. Also, to maintain your results, you should adopt a regular skin care regimen that includes daily sunscreen use.

No single cosmetic injectable is right for everyone, and results from dermal fillers can vary significantly among patients. To determine your best approach to smoother, younger-looking skin, consult with the master aestheticians and nurse injector of the Beauty Now team.
