Which Dermal Filler is Right for You?

Posted by ultrastarter on December 17, 2015

No matter how proactive you are about taking care of your skin, from wearing sunscreen to using anti-aging moisturizers, chances are that at least a few wrinkles have made their way onto your face. Fortunately is a simple, non-invasive solution to treating those wrinkles: dermal fillers!

Dermal fillers are so effective that they are often referred to as a liquid facelift. While they are a temporary solution for wrinkles, they are a much more cost-effective solution that can literally be performed over your lunch hour. See some of the great results others have had with injectable fillers.

Dermal fillers are designed to  add volume and decrease wrinkles from the cheeks to the chin, including:

  • Nasolabial folds (“smile lines”)
  • Around the mouth and lips
  • In the lips (for augmentation)
  • Mid Cheek areas

However, even though they treat wrinkles in a variety of locations on the face, different fillers are made of different substances, which mean some work better to fill specific areas of the face than others.

If you are looking to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, the best solution is to set up a consultation with AOB to determine which filler will best meet your need. That said, here are a few examples of dermal fillers that are available and the areas of the face where they can perform the best:

Belotero Balance®

Belotero Balance® is made of hyaluronic acid. It is designed to fill in wrinkles and folds by binding with water, allowing for an almost immediate correction. While some fillers are best for rebuilding volume in the face, Belotero Balance® is designed to treat moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles like vertical lip lines.

Juvederm®

Juvederm® is a gel filler is designed to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Juvederm Voluma® XC, on the other hand, is designed for deep injection in the cheek to treat volume loss. Learn more about Juvederm® in Denver.

Bellafill®

If you’re looking for a good filler for treating nasolabial folds, “smile lines,” or facial acne scars on the cheek, Bellafill® may be a good choice. This filler is FDA-approved for treating smile lines and pitted acne scars on the cheeks.  Bellafill is also the only dermal filler that is designed to last safely for five years, making it a far more permanent solution than other fillers.

Radiesse®

Radiesse® is intended to correct volume loss in the back of the hands as well as smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Radiesse® injections can help stimulate collagen production more than the hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane®.

Restylane®

Restylane® is designed to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds by adding volume. It also can be used for lip augmentation or to treat lip lines in patients over 21.

As you can see, there are a LOT of different dermal fillers on the market and each one is a little different, from how fast they can produce results to the location and severity of wrinkles they best treat. The best solution is to speak to an experienced physician who can help guide you toward the right solution for your goals and ensure you have realistic expectations for the results.
