Hyaluronic acid fillers are often recommended for those who are getting fillers for the first time, as they tend to be more temporary and last between 6 to 18 months. Injections into the lips will wear out faster than those in the nasolabial folds. Radiesse from Merz Aesthetics is an FDA approved CaHa filler that is used to soften and minimize nasolabial folds and improve jawline contours. It can also be used to build up the posterior line of the jaw, chin, and cheeks.
Some dermal fillers have been studied to last about two years, with Restylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, Juvederm Voluma, Radiesse, and Sculptra being the longest lasting. Restylane Refyne and Defyne are the newest hyaluronic acid fillers using Xpreshan technology. These products provide lift and volume while maintaining flexibility and facial expression. They can be used to raise sunken scars, reinflate hands, brighten the lower part of cavernous eyes, and sharpen jaw lines that have become soft.
Doctors often use muscular structural fillers such as Radiesse, Juvéderm Ultra, and Restylane Lyft on the hands and jaw. For the clear area under the eyes, a thin layer of a more fluid HA that doesn't swell or emit a bluish glow can be injected to lift the skin away from underlying vessels and hide discoloration and voids. The most popular category of anti-wrinkle fillers is hyaluronic acid. Each type works in a slightly different way with varying results.
There are many facial fillers available depending on your needs and how long you want the effects to last. Restylane-L, Juvederm, and Belotero are commonly used for facial wrinkles, asymmetry, and volume loss. They have also manufactured dermal fillers to address various facial problems such as smoothing wrinkles and adding volume to sunken or depressed areas. Facial fillers are substances that are injected into the skin to smooth out wrinkles and make them less visible.
The side effects of facial fillers tend to go away in seven to 14 days. Many women and men choose dermal fillers as a safe and effective option for facial rejuvenation. However, it is not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers, those with active infections, or those who are allergic to filling components. Too much filling or doing it too often can stretch the skin and leave it sagging.
Injecting a facial filler is usually an outpatient procedure performed with anesthetic medications. It is important to learn about the HA filling product line for each brand in order to get an idea of which filler will work best for your needs.
