Facial rejuvenation has become increasingly popular for reducing facial wrinkles and lines, and dermal fillers are at the forefront of this trend. As we age, the fat under our facial skin diminishes. The results are hollow spots, wrinkles, fine lines and deep creases.
Dermal fillers are used in minimally invasive, safe cosmetic procedures to restore volume and fullness lost due to aging or sun exposure. Dermal fillers are used to plump up thinning lips, add volume to shallow areas, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scar depressions.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic acid fillers are clinically proven safe, effective injectables that are placed into selected facial areas using small, fine needles. A dermal filler treatment provides immediate, noticeable results with little to no downtime.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are a good option, because they’re compatible with the human body. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in humans. It’s a structural component of our skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity.
Fillers containing hyaluronic acid are used to fill in the spaces under lines, wrinkles and creases to tighten skin. Hyaluronic acid also attracts moisture, making the results in the treated area last longer, because the acid can hold 1,000 times its weight in water.
While there may be a few side effects with fillers, such as bruising or redness at the injection site, hyaluronic acid is quite safe. Most side effects resolve themselves within one week. The fillers don’t have to be replaced frequently, and can last for several months or longer depending on the filler you choose.
Better integration of hyaluronic acid into dermal filler gels has produced an innovative line of cutting-edge dermal fillers. Let’s take a look at four in hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, and what they can do for you.
- Juvederm Vollure filler
Juvederm Vollure™ XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler that’s used to correct moderate to severe face wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the nose to the jaw on either side of the mouth). Research studies found that approximately 60 percent of people tested saw an improvement in moderate to severe nasolabial folds for up to 18 months.
- Restylane Refyne filler
Restylane® Refyne is FDA-approved filler designed to reduce and soften nasolabial folds. Refyne also helps reduce the appearance of marionette lines (the lines that run from around the corner of the lip down to the chin). Restylane® Refyne helps restore a more natural look to your face, while maintaining your facial expressions, unlike Botox which “freezes” your facial muscles.
- Restylane Defyne filler
Restylane® Defyne fills in deep laugh lines such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. FDA-approved Restylane Defyne is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that helps restore a younger, natural appearance, while maintaining your natural facial expressions.
- Belotero Balance filler
Belotero Balance® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that temporarily smoothes and fills in moderate to severe nasolabial folds, as well as other moderate to severe lines and wrinkles etched in around your lips and mouth. It feels natural to the touch, and also maintains normal facial movements and expressions.
