What Is the Best Filler for Me?
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Many of today’s most popular dermal fillers, including Juvederm and Restylane, are comprised of a smooth hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring sugar molecule that readily draws in moisture, which makes it an excellent plumping and hydrating agent.
Patients have a wide-range of hyaluronic acid fillers to choose from.
Juvederm Vollure and Restylane Defyne are ideal for correction of deeper nasolabial folds and last up to one year.
Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft have the thickest formulations, which makes them an excellent option for plumping cheeks and improving facial contours.
Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Silk both contain smaller hyaluronic acid particles for subtle lip enhancement and smoothing of vertical lip lines.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite Dermal Filler
If you are wondering – What is the best filler for me? – Radiesse, made of calcium hydroxylapatite particles suspended in gel, may offer an ideal solution.
Radiesse is designed to smooth nasolabial folds and marionette lines, add volume to cheeks, rejuvenate hands, fill-in hollows, and correct moderate to severe creases.
It also stimulates collagen growth around the injected product, for added support and long-lasting results.
