Many people don’t like the idea of going “under the knife” to enhance their look or reverse signs of aging. For these people, an alternative such as facial fillers is available. There are a variety of facial fillers that are currently on the market (the list continues to grow as times goes on) and quite frankly, the list can confuse some people. Each facial filler has its own benefits, potential negatives, and features.
In this article we are going to explore some of the most popular facial fillers on the market today so that you will have a better understanding of what your options are for non-invasive facial rejuvenation.
The facial fillers that we will be looking at are Juvéderm, JuvédermVoluma, Radiesse, and Restylane.
If your goal is to smooth out wrinkles around your nose and mouth, look no further than Juvéderm. This product is well known for feeling natural and leaving the patient with a more positive outcome than alternative treatments. Of course, there really isn’t any recovery time for something such as Juvéderm because it’s completely non-surgical and doesn’t involve any cutting, or “going under the knife”.
The thing that patients really love about JuvédermVoluma is that the results from this facial filler last for more than a year (usually). Additionally, this procedure is hyaluronic acid based, and it works to achieve a more subtle lift for patients rather than a more intense one.
Known for restoring volume to the cheeks, this facial filler has climbed the ranks to become one of the main contenders in the facial filler word.
Radiesse is a well-known gel filler that works to replenish and rebuild your facial structure by focusing on the foundation of it, rather than just the outer layer of skin. Radiesse stimulates your natural collagen, which means that it works from the base up, creating a long-term change rather than a quick “fix me up”.
The main thing that you should remember about Radiesse is that it is injected to help grow your collagen.
Similar to JuvédermVoluma, Restylane works to restore your skin’s overall volume and decrease signs of aging. This facial filler can help enhance your lips and get rid of wrinkles. At the very core, this facial filler is a hyaluronic acid. Essentially, it protects your cells in a natural way instead of putting your skin and face at risk like other facial fillers do.
To conclude, there are a lot of facial fillers on the market. Choosing which facial filler is right for you is vital to the success of your procedure. Contact your local cosmetic surgeon today for more information!
