DERMAL FILLERS: WHICH FILLERS ARE RIGHT FOR ME?

Unlike botulinum toxin injectables like Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin, which affect how muscles in your upper face move, dermal fillers are designed to fill in space just beneath the skin. They help smooth out wrinkles and restore volume that’s been lost due to aging.

 

HYALURONIC ACID DERMAL FILLERS

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are popular for their long-lasting and natural-looking results. Let’s explore products like Juvéderm, Belotero Balance, and Restylane Lyft. For those interested in the science: hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance found in our skin, nerves, and connective tissue. It’s a type of sugar that occurs naturally in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid is crucial because it helps retain water, keeping our skin hydrated, plump, and youthful. The dermis, which is the deepest layer of our skin, consists mainly of hyaluronic acid and collagen. As we age, we naturally begin to lose these vital components, which is why these fillers can be so beneficial.

 

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is highly effective in dermal fillers because of how it interacts with the moisture in your skin. In its gel form, HA expands when it absorbs water, which helps to smooth out lines and wrinkles and restores a natural-looking volume to the skin. The HA used in dermal fillers is synthesized either using bacteria or derived from animal sources, such as rooster combs. Since it closely resembles the HA naturally found in our bodies, the risk of adverse reactions is very low.

 

Thanks to advances in our understanding of the aging process and how hyaluronic acid functions, along with improvements in the quality of dermal fillers available, we can achieve more consistent and longer-lasting results. Often, the HA in dermal fillers is crosslinked, meaning the molecules have been chemically bonded to make them more stable and longer-lasting in the body.

 

Not all hyaluronic acid fillers are the same; different products are better suited for addressing specific issues. Factors like the consistency, size of the HA molecule, and the bonding of the molecules influence where a filler is most effective and how long the results will last.

 

NON-HYALURONIC ACID FILLERS

Although hyaluronic acid fillers are well-known, they aren’t your only option and sometimes, an alternative product might deliver better results for you. Non-hyaluronic acid fillers are composed of various ingredients, ranging from collagen to mineral compounds. These products often offer dual benefits: they not only fill in lines and plump up the skin but also help your body produce more collagen, leading to a fuller, healthier appearance.

 

While you can expect pleasing results from any of these products, it’s crucial to be open with Dr. Leonard. Provide clear information about your expectations and any allergies you might have. It’s also important to discuss what options are available if you are not satisfied with the results. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, which can be dissolved quickly if needed, non-hyaluronic acid fillers can only be reversed over time.

 

Dermal fillers can smooth fine lines on the forehead and lower face. Moderate lines in the mouth-to-jaw area and from the nose to lip corners can be softened. Cheeks and jaws can be reshaped and given more definition. Scars can be minimized, while lips can be defined or enhanced, subtly and naturally. Skin boosters can be used to increase hydration to the skin, particularly in the face, neck, hands, and décolletage.
