Dermal Fillers Your Questions Answered

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal Fillers are a cosmetic procedure that is injected into the skin. Fillers are used to reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles; they are also used to contour and create volume and even revitalize the skin. The key ingredient of most dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid which naturally occurs in the body. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that binds to water and is also essential for transporting nutrients in the skin.

Patients use dermal fillers to smooth the skin surface by reducing wrinkles and filling in hollow areas to restore a more youthful appearance. A single treatment can last 6 to 9 months, and a standard service takes less than thirty minutes to perform.

What Are The Target Areas For Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers can improve the look of your appearance in a variety of ways. The most common areas for treatment with dermal fillers are adding volume to lips, plumping cheeks, filling in forehead lines, eliminating lines around the mouth, and reducing the appearance of scars.

Which Dermal Fillers Work The Best?

Choosing the correct dermal filler can seem overwhelming; with so many products on the market, it’s hard to know which one is best for you. At The Center For Women’s Aesthetics, we pride ourselves on offering our clients the best, which is why we choose to work with Juvéderm and Restylane. These products differ slightly, allowing us to customize a look for individual patients based on their needs; they both provide impressively natural-looking results and have long-lasting effects.

What Are The Differences Between Juvéderm and Restylane?

Both Restylane and Juvéderm use the same key ingredient (hyaluronic acid) to reduce the signs of aging. The main difference between these two products is the texture; Restylane is more granular while Juvéderm is smoother. This doesn’t mean one is superior to the other; they both work similarly and are used to treating the same issues. However, subtle differences between the two might make one a better fit for your body composition.

Typically, Juvéderm addresses more delicate lines or areas of the face where the skin is tighter. Restylane is known for staying in place when injected, so it is more commonly used to add volume into sunken areas of the face. Restylane is also slightly more moldable to be easily used for facial contouring. These products are the absolute top tier of dermal fillers; although they serve different purposes.

Choosing the best filler for you depends on your personal goals and expectations. It also depends on genetic factors such as the structure of your face. The best way to determine which product is right for you and which filler would accomplish your aesthetic goals is to work with an experienced practitioner.

What Services Are Paired With Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers require little to no downtime and are most commonly paired with neuromodulators like Botox. The combination of neuromodulators and fillers can be subtle or substantial based on your aesthetic goals; many people use these cosmetic injections as an alternative to a facelift or other invasive procedures.
