Having minimal volume in your face makes you look older, tired, and less friendly. Fortunately, an option called dermal fillers restores volume to key areas of your face. Within minutes, you can get more voluminous cheeks, lips, and other facial features. Along with building or restoring volume in key areas, dermal fillers erase signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and other blemishes. There are several types of fillers that our team in Hudson can use to give patients the look they’re after. Here are some of the most commonly used fillers and their advantages.
Juvederm® is one of the most popular fillers in Hudson, Akron, Cleveland, and elsewhere. It is a gel known for its smooth consistency that produces a natural look. Juvederm® is comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that the human body naturally produces. Hyaluronic acid creates volume by retaining water, but over time, the body stops producing the same quantities of hyaluronic acid. This explains your loss of facial volume. However, hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm® supplement the body’s hyaluronic acid production to restore volume.
Restylane® is another filler made of hyaluronic acid. Like Juvederm®, it works immediately to fight the signs of aging by getting rid of wrinkles and restoring volume to desired areas. Restylane® can last for months after it is injected. Eventually, the hyaluronic acid will become absorbed back into the body.
Sculptra® is injected deep under the skin to produce long-lasting volume and correct signs of aging. After it is injected, Sculptra® adds volume to sunken cheeks and evens out indentations. Its primary active ingredient is poly lactic acid, which is an FDA-approved substance for restoring volume loss across the face. Sculptra®, unlike other fillers, has a gradual volumizing effect. While most fillers produce an instant effect and then fade, Sculptra® stimulates the body’s own collagen production. This happens gradually over time.
With so many dermal fillers on the market to choose from, there are options for almost everyone to achieve the look they want. Make an appointment at Neo Skin Center in Hudson to learn more about your options. Contact us today to book your consultation!
