What Are Fillers?
Fillers are usually a gel-based substance containing hyaluronic acid, which is used to plump up the
skin of the face. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, but over time, your skin’s ability
to manufacture hyaluronic acid diminishes. Most fillers are a cross-link of hyaluronic particles which
maintains the moisture and nutrient levels within the skin cells, giving it the appearance of volume and
suppleness. Once injected, the gel replenishes the hyaluronic acid that has been lost over time causing
a smoother, more youthful appearance. Dermal filler provides visible and long-lasting results in the
treatment of fine lines and wrinkles as well as in plumping up the lips, and filling in the cheek area.
Where Can Filler be Applied?
Many facial regions may benefit from tissue augmentation with filler. The procedure can be used for
lines and creases around the mouth, nose, and forehead, and facial contouring. Small amounts of filler
can be used in conjunction with Botox® to soften wrinkles between the eyebrows. Small amounts of filler
can also be used to accent the brow bone, augment the chin, or even treat traumatic and acne scarring.
Fillers can be injected into the earlobe to plump the skin, allowing stud earrings to sit in a proper
position on the ear.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate for Dermal Filler?
A great potential candidate for filler is in good mental and physical health. Fillers are a great
option for those looking to erase blemishes and reduce wrinkles due to aging. It is also an effective
alternative for those who do not want to undergo surgery or other invasive treatments to target signs of
Juvaderm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Belotero
Though you may have heard the term Juvederm more often, Restylane, Radiesse and Belotero are also
common types of filler that are used along with Juvederm. Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid filler, that
upon injection, will provide natural looking and quick results.
Radiesse® is a volumizing filler that will provide the volume and lift needed to diminish signs of
aging. Rather than hyaluronic acid it is composed of calcium, another substance that occurs naturally in
your body. It also provides structure and stimulates natural collagen all at the same time.
Belotero is an FDA-approved filler that functions to reduce the appearance of fine lines around the
mouth and volumizing under the eye.
By using these various fillers you’ll be able to instantly smooth away wrinkles and restore volume loss
due to aging. Everyone will notice, but no one will know!
