As we age, we lose some of the fullness in our face and in its place we develop wrinkles. In the past, this shift was as unavoidable as the passing of time itself, but today it's possible to restore volume to the face and recapture the supple contours of youth through the medical magic of facial fillers. Here's some insight into a few of the many possible facial fillers that may be right for you:
Juvederm Voluma® XC
Juvederm Voluma® XC has the distinction of being the first injectable gel approved by the FDA to treat volume loss in the midface or cheek area. It's also the only filler with results clinically proven to last as long as two years, making it a viable long-term solution for patients seeking a relatively low-maintenance filler.
Juvéderm® XC Injectable Gel
Juvéderm® XC Injectable Gel is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a substance which already occurs naturally in your body. Once injected, the gel works to smooth away wrinkles and plump the skin for up to a year, but like many other fillers, regular "touch ups" are necessary to maintain your new, smoother look.
Restylane® and Perlane®
Both Restylane® and Perlane® contain hyaluronic acid, and both are designed to combat wrinkles and loss of facial volume.
Restylane's® more liquid consistency is used for more sensitive spots such as the under-eye area and around the lips, and the after-treatment effects generally last about six months.
Perlane® is ideal for sculpting areas that need more contouring and support, like the chin, nasolabial folds, and cheeks, and the results typically last up to nine months.
Belotero Balance® Dermal Filler
Belotero Balance® is also a hylauronic acid facial filler, but it's manufactured using a unique process that makes the end product remarkably good at adapting to your skin for beautiful, soft and even results. You can use Belotero Balance® to correct moderate to severely etched smile lines and vertical lip lines. The results typically last up to six months.
