All Facial Fillers Are Not Created Equal

Facial fillers continue to be a popular solution for those that want to turn back the hands of time without going under the knife. Facial fillers are a non-surgical means of cosmetic correction and improvement to the face. Patients can get facial filler injections during a quick office visit, gaining dramatic results with little to no downtime.

While the process is easy, it is still very important to choose a qualified provider when getting facial fillers, such as a board certified dermatologist who is trained in aesthetics. Not only do they carry the refined skill and technique to minimize bruising and create natural-looking results, but a dermatologist will also know which type of facial filler to choose for your unique concerns.

There are numerous varieties of facial fillers on the market. However, they are not all created equal. Each product brand has varying components and textures. Most importantly, they differ in how long they last as well as what specific area of concern they treat best. For instance, while one filler may be best for plumping the lips, another filler type may be best for improving treating nasolabial folds. A knowledgeable physician will understand each product and how to use it best.

The most popular fillers contain hyaluronic acid as a key ingredient to restore volume to aging features of the face. Hyaluronic acid is found in widely-used products such as Restylane and Juvederm. Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan, which is a natural substance in your body that supports a youthful skin structure. It has impressive moisture-binding capabilities that can essentially reverse the effects of aging because it allows the skin to remain plump and in tact as well as feel softer and smoother.
