How do I Know Which Dermal Filler is Right for Me?

Like most people, you’re probably used to looking in the mirror and seeing fine lines and wrinkles. It’s just one of the hazards of getting older, right? But have you ever wondered how those wrinkles get there in the first place?

How and why does your skin age?

Your skin, collectively the biggest organ of your body, is pretty amazing in protecting you from the weather, keeping out germs, and ensuring that you don’t dry out in the heat. It also contains three ingredients that are important to young looking skin: collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs).

The collagen in skin adds volume and keeps it looking plump. The elastin ensures that when skin stretches, it can bounce back to its normal position. The GAGs are all about keeping the skin hydrated. These three ingredients give your skin that fresh and youthful look. Sadly, they don’t last forever.

Did you know that after you turn 20, your skin produces 1% percent less collagen every year? And it also produces less elastin and hydrating fluids. When these factors are combined with damaging exposure to the sun, cosmetics, and pollutants, the effects of aging are quite apparent, especially in our faces.

As you get older, the skin on your face:

How can dermal fillers help?

Dermal fillers reintroduce what your skin has lost. They’ve been around for decades, and the technology is getting better all the time. There are several types of dermal fillers, and each one is carefully injected underneath the skin to achieve the following results:

What is the best dermal filler to choose?

There are three dermal fillers that we use here at our clinic: Voluma®, Juvéderm®, and Restylane®. Each one can help produce more youthful-looking skin, so how can you make sure you make the right choice for you?

Hyaluronic acid has often been touted as the next big thing in cosmetics, and in many ways it is something of a wonder substance. If you have fine lines, a low viscous dermal filler that contains abundant hyaluronic acid, such as Restylane, is ideal because it adds moisture back to the skin and softens fine lines in several places on your face, including near your nose and mouth, under your eyes, and on your chin.

If you need to lift areas of your face because of sagging and looseness, a thicker dermal filler, such as Voluma, is ideal. It also contains hyaluronic acid, and once injected it will add volume and lift those sunken and thinner areas of the face.

An array of Juvéderm fillers expertly lessen those so-called parentheses lines and other wrinkles around your nose and mouth.

Don’t wait for younger-looking skin

Loose skin, wrinkles, and fine lines are a natural part of the aging process, but advances in dermal filler technology mean that a single treatment can last for up to six months.
