All cosmetic facial derma fillers are designed to restore volume and fullness of skin and to correct wrinkles and folds. Fillers are most commonly used for cosmetic procedures involving Naso-Labial folds—lines from the nose to corners of the lips, cheeks, and mouth and lower face. There are several types and brands of facial fillers. The physician at Skin Thera P™ will help you decide what is the best filler for you, depending on the area being treated and your anatomy.
Different Types of Facial Fillers
- Hyaluronic Acid-based fillers: These fillers are smooth-consistency gels made from Hyaluronic acid, a natural substance existing in the human body used to provide volume and fullness to skin. The fillers are safe and natural cosmetic derma-fillers that help you regain lost volume and restore youthful fullness and contours to the skin. They are injected to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, such as Naso-Labial folds. Treatment lasts six to nine months. Some products made from Hyaluronic acid are Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm Ultra, Teosyal and Beletero.
- Calcium based fillers: Calcium Hydroxylapatite is the main component of Radiesse, a longer lasting temporary derma-filler designed for facial sculpting. Radiesse is used primarily in improving Naso-Labial folds. It is best suited for deep derma injections and may require administration of other local anesthetics before treatment. Treatment can last up to twelve months.
- Poly-L-lactic Acid-based fillers: Collagen stimulators are made from Poly-L-lactic acid which not only adds volume or addresses lines and wrinkles but also improves skin texture and tone by stimulating new collagen growth. Injectable collagen treatments like Sculptra, improves the overall thickness of skin and enhances facial volume. The treatment gradually shows more subtle results over several months lasting up to 2 years.
During consultation, you and your physician can decide on the suitable facial filler for you depending the area to be treated, the amount of wrinkles, your age and other factors.
