The Different Types of Fillers

Posted on March 20, 2020 under Facial Procedures, Non-Invasive

When looking for a minimally-invasive cosmetic rejuvenation treatment, there are a few options based on your needs and area of treatment. Dr. Basile offers a range of injectable dermal fillers for patients wishing for a refreshed appearance. 

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Fillers are used to fill in areas that you want to plump up and smooth out. Most newer fillers are hyaluronic-based which allows them to give long-lasting, natural results. 

Areas of the Face That Can Be Treated

Undereye Hollows

This delicate area of the face must be treated with extreme care.

Restylane® Lyft can be used to successfully reduce the appearance of undereye hollows. Small amounts will be injected under the eyes to plump up the skin. 

Cheeks

As we age, the cheeks are an area of concern, as they tend to lose volume.

Juvéderm® Voluma is great for this area of the face and lasts a relatively long time, up to two years. This filler can significantly plump up the cheeks.

Nasolabial Folds

This area of the face extends from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth. The majority of fillers are FDA-approved for the nasolabial folds.

Juvéderm® Ultra Plus is a viable option for deeper nasolabial folds. This filler has remarkable longevity and is very moldable. It can be massaged at the time of injection to reduce any potential lumps. Juvéderm Ultra Plus can be used in many parts of the face, but it is not recommended under the eye area.

Restylane® Defyne is one of the newest Restylane® products, is specifically made to inject into parts of the face that move. With this product, you avoid the look of feel of stiffness. It works well for the nasolabial folds to keep the area mobile.

Restylane® Lyft is FDA-approved for mid-face areas. Restylane® Lift is also an excellent option for deeper folds.

Lips

 Lips are extremely popular to inject. There are a wide variety of fillers available for the lips.

Juvéderm® Ultra Plus gives a considerable plumping effect. This powerful lifter offers more dramatic results. Juvéderm® Volbella is a softer filler for the lips.

Restylane® Silk and Restylane® Refyne are great as a very soft filler for a less dramatic look. Refyne does not have the lifting power as Restylane® Defyne. Results may not last as long with the softer lip fillers.

Fine Lines

This area around the mouth can be difficult to treat.

Restylane® Silk, Juvéderm® Volbella, or Restylane® Refyne work well in this area, as they are gentle fillers that can address those hard-to-reach lines.

All of the dermal fillers last for various lengths of time. On average it is between 6 to 18 months. You can receive repeat treatments to maintain your results from the filler.
