Facial Fillers: Navigating Your Options

Woman Receiving Facial Fillers Atlanta GA

Injectable fillers are an excellent way to turn back the hands of time without undergoing plastic surgery. Whether you are aiming to reduce folds and wrinkles or accentuate a certain facial feature, facial fillers can likely do the job. When considering facial fillers, however, you’ll quickly discover there are many different options available to you. There are a variety of brands and even different forms within a brand. How do you know which filler is right for you?

A board certified skin care specialist can help you determine which facial filler you should choose. This is important. Not all fillers are created equal. Each formula is designed to achieve a certain goal within cosmetic improvement. Facial fillers have different consistencies as well as unique ways they should be placed within the face. Lastly, some may last for a few months, while others can last up to 2 years!

What are Hyaluronic Fillers?

The most widely used types of fillers are injectable gels made of hyaluronic acid (HA). They all provide lasting but not permanent results. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in our skin, and it is a building block for supple, healthy and youthful skin. The arrangement of HA molecules in a filler determines is consistency, or how soft or stiff it is. This determines whether it is best for adding volume and lifting the cheeks (stiff filler) or for addressing fine lines on the lips (soft filler). Beyond choosing the correct type of filler, the other contributing factor to your filler results is the expertise and skill of your injector. It is wise to let a dermatologist or other experienced skin care professional perform the task.

Determining Which Filler is Best

A dermatologist will take the following factors into consideration when selecting a filler type:

  • Area of the face being treated (under the eyes, around the mouth/nose, lips, cheeks)
  • Type of concern (sagging skin, lines/wrinkles, folds, hollowness)
  • Severity of concern (mild or more pronounced signs of aging)
  • Personal preferences and budget (more expensive, longer-lasting filler versus alternative)

Are you bothered by sagging cheeks or nasolabial folds? Do you want to enhance the appearance of your lips? These are typically an easy fix with the right facial filler and a skilled injector. At Olansky Dermatology, we are proud to offer a full menu of the latest and most proven facial fillers on the market, including those from Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra and more. We can help you determine which filler or combination of fillers can achieve your goals best. When it comes to facial aesthetic treatments, we never use a cookie cutter approach!

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
