How To Know Which Dermal Filler is Best for You
When considering dermal fillers, you should ask yourself several questions, including:
- Where do I most want to add volume?
- Which features do I want to enhance?
- Do I want subtle or dramatic results?
- How long am I willing to wait for results?
- How long do I want my results to last?
Only an injection specialist can determine which dermal filler is best for you. However, having a clear idea of what you want can help them customize your results. They have a dermal filler formula for almost any area of the face, and you can choose one or more than one to sculpt and smooth your features.
What are Dermal Fillers Made Of?
Dermal fillers come in a range of materials. Two of the most common filler materials are hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite. Both use scientifically-developed versions of materials naturally found in the body, making them safe and natural-looking.
What is Juvederm®
Juvederm® is a family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Members of this family all contain this molecule, which can form complex chains and cross-links. This property has let Juvederm® develop formulas effective for adding cheek volume, smoothing lines and wrinkles, and enhancing the lips. They last between six and eighteen months.
What is Radiesse®
Radiesse® is a dermal filler made of calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a flexible gel. It triggers collagen production, resulting in a volume that develops over several weeks and can last longer than other filler types. It makes an excellent option for enhancing cheek volume and correcting deep lines and wrinkles. It can last one to two years.
