Columbia, Maryland interest in facial fillers has skyrocketed over the past several years. And for many women and men, fillers have become the go-to treatment for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. They are safe, effective, quick, and provide immediate benefits.
But with an increasing number of injectable products available, patients often wonder: What are the best fillers for the face?
Continue reading to learn all about the different types of dermal fillers and which may be best-suited to your needs and goals.
4 of the Best Fillers for the Face
Juvederm is an FDA-approved dermal filler that’s designed to reverse signs of aging, plump lips, enhance natural contours, and improve facial symmetry. The main ingredient in this filler is hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar molecule that occurs in skin and joints.
When injected below the skin, Juvederm’s hyaluronic acid gel attracts water and provides instant plumping and hydrating effects.
The type of Juvederm product typically depends on the treatment area, the extent of correction needed, and the patient’s individual skin nuances.
For example, Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella are ideal for lip enhancement, while Juvederm Voluma is recommended for cheek augmentation.
What’s more, the Restylane family of fillers is extremely versatile and can be used to customize treatment to facial structure and anatomy.
Similar to Juvederm, Restylane products may vary in composition – some are thinner and more fluid, while others are thicker and stiffer. Both Restylane and Restylane Silk are indicated for added lip volume, while Restylane Lyft can restore volume loss to the cheeks, midface, and back of the hands.
Sculptra is a collagen-stimulating facial filler comprised of poly-L-lactic acid. It is designed to augment cheeks, correct hollows, thicken skin, and fill-in lines and folds. Because Sculptra stimulates the production of new collagen, results can last for up to 2 years.
However, most patients need a series of injections, scheduled several weeks apart.
Radiesse is another one of the best fillers for the face. It is made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres and can correct moderate to severe creases, rejuvenate volume-depleted cheeks, and increase skin thickness. Like Sculptra, Radiesse also promotes neocollagenesis for instant and progressive results.
