Dermal fillers, commonly known as facial fillers, can work all sorts of magic: smooth fine lines, erase under-eye circles, enhance your cheekbones, lift your eyebrows, and plump thinning lips. The end result is a visibly rejuvenated and younger appearance.
As fall is coming closer, you probably want to get rid of all the sun damage your skin suffered over the summer. One of the most effective ways to achieve that is by taking injectables or fillers that can be done in less than an hour with little to no downtime.
Before we begin, please note that fillers are different from other injectables like Xeomin, Dysport, or Botox. While the latter can even out wrinkles, they cannot enhance or plump an area.
Now that we have covered that, let’s talk about the 3 best fillers to choose from this year.
Juvederm is perhaps the most well-known collection of fillers that are designed to be used on different parts of the face.
For example, Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella XC can plump up your lips and soften those annoying vertical lines on the lips.
But if you want to add back youthful contours to your cheeks, Juvederm Voluma XC is the best option for that.
The main ingredient in Juvederm treatments is hyaluronic acid (HA) which is naturally found in the body and gives your skin the necessary elasticity, volume, and moisture. As you grow older, your skin loses its HA reserves and becomes wrinkly and loose.
Juvederm injectables act like a sponge that attracts water back into the skin. This plumps up the area in which the filler was injected, giving you an instantly smoother appearance.
Depending on which Juvederm treatment you’ve chosen, the effects can last anywhere from six months to 18 months.
Sculptra was originally created for patients suffering from immunodeficiency virus, who had lost the fat in their faces. It was used to improve their appearances and giving them their youthful, healthy glow back.
But then Sculptra was approved for cosmetic purposes in people who wanted to enhance their cheeks and fill in the sunken/hollow areas of the face. Another benefit of Sculptra is, it increases sin thickness to reduce the fine lines, smile lines, and folds around the cheek and nose area.
But Sculptra cannot be used around the eyes or on lips.
The poly-L-lactic acid present in Sculptra encourages the creation of new collagen. That’s why it takes multiple treatments for results to become obvious. The sessions are 4-6 weeks apart. The number of sessions you need will depend on the extent of aging on your face.
The effects of Sculptra can last up to 2 years after your first session is completed.
If your face has developed facial creases, like nasolabial folds, Radiesse might be the best option for you. It can plump up your cheeks and other contours on your face – except the lips.
Calcium hydroxylapatite is the main component of Radiesse, and it is naturally found in human bones and teeth. The tiny calcium particles used in a Radiesse treatment are suspended in a thick gel-like serum.
This treatment helps your skin replenish its lost volume, but as time passes, your body metabolizes the calcium and the gel is completely absorbed. But still, the results typically last a year or more.
