What Are Face Fillers?
Face fillers replace skin substances that diminish as we age. As we lose collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, the skin starts to thin. Face filler injections treat superficial fine lines, facial folds, crevasses and facial volume loss.
Collagen helps the skin stay firm and smooth while elastin helps the skin return to its original shape after being stretched. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally produced in our bodies and helps keep our skin hydrated. Face fillers not only replace these key substances, but they also stimulate collagen production.
What Types of Face Filler Injections Are Used?
Our skilled aestheticians will recommend the appropriate face fillers after examining your facial skin. The thinnest fillers are used to treat superficial lines. For the areas that need more volume replacement, thicker face filler injections are placed deeper in the skin.
Medium thickness face fillers are used for actual folds in the skin and deeper crevasses. The thickest fillers enhance volume in facial areas that need to be plumped up. There are a variety of filler products but we most often use Juvederm, Radiesse and Restylane face filler injections.
Juvederm Face Fillers
Juvederm is the #1 doctor-recommended face filler worldwide. When the hyaluronic acid in Juvederm blends with the water in your skin, it smooths lines and wrinkles, adds volume and defines your facial features. Many people worry about face filler injections looking fake, but Juvederm is known to provide a lasting natural appearance.
Hyaluronic Acid Face Fillers
Restylane and Juvederm are made from hyaluronic acid. One of the reasons these areamong the most popular face fillers is because unlike other fillers, hyaluronic acid is not animal-based and has no risk of an allergic reaction. It is also a clear gel that already exists in the body and attracts water, which hydrates your skin.
Botox vs. Face Filler Injections
While Botox and face filler injections have many similar characteristics, there are some key differences. Botox freezes muscles to stop creases and wrinkles whereas face filler injections use hyaluronic acid or similar substances to fill in areas that have lost volume and smoothness.
Radiesse Face Fillers
Once Radiesse face fillers are injected into the skin, it immediately works to add volume under the skin while providing a long-lasting natural look. The effects continue over time because it stimulates your body’s own natural collagen. This treatment can last for at least a year.
Radiesse is a completely biocompatible and biodegradable face filler injection that is absorbed into the body over time. It also contains lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic that helps reduce pain. You may just feel momentary pinching during the treatment.
Face filler injections take just a few minutes to 30 minutes depending on the product that is used
