Dermal fillers are the most popular choice for facial rejuvenation, and for good reason. Not only are these treatments minimally invasive, they provide effective, natural-looking results. With so many injectables available, it can be tough to choose the right one. While an expert dermatologist is the best source of guidance in choosing a fillers that aligns with your goals and needs, this blog offers a detailed look at the benefits and advantages that each treatment offers.

Popular Injectable Fillers

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic: Perhaps the most well-known dermal filler, BOTOX relaxes the muscles of the face when it is injected, and smooths frown lines, forehead creases and crow’s feet. Patients will notice a dramatic reduction of wrinkles and creases in the treated area, however the overall appearance of the face will remain the same, ensuring natural-looking results. Despite common belief, BOTOX patients can still smile and frown while attaining a wrinkle-free appearance. BOTOX treatments are minimally invasive and take only a few minutes to perform. Results can last up to six months.
  • Sculptra®: Sculptra restores volume to areas of the face that experience facial fat loss due to the aging process, such as sunken cheeks and deep folds. This treatment is injected into the deep layers of the skin, and volume returns gradually over time. Though results vary, Sculptra has been shown to last as long as two years in some patients.
  • Belotero®: The most advanced type of dermal filler, Belotero is available in different formulations to best enhance different skin types and conditions. Composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance, this filler has the unique ability to blend in with the tissues of the skin to fill in fine lines and wrinkles and adding volume to sagging contours of the face.
  • Juvéderm® and Restylane®: These hyaluronic acid-based fillers are made of gel and can be used to correct a number of cosmetic concerns including wrinkles around the nose and mouth, and loss of volume in the cheeks and lips. Many patients see results lasting up to nine months.
