Types of Fillers
Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers
Studies have shown that the average treatment lasts six months or even longer. They contain a unique technology that helps to maintain the effect until the injected material is almost gone. Additional studies have shown that the effect can last up to 18 months following a specific protocol. They are made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin.
Restylane and Juvederm are the two most widely used fillers and are appropriate for most indications.
Belotero is a more recent hyaluronic acid designed to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds
Calcium-based microspheres is another type of filler. This category of filler can last upwards of twelve months, and is best suited for deep dermal injections and may require administration of some local anesthetic prior to treatment.
Radiesse is made of calcium-based micro spheres suspended in a water based gel. It is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure giving you immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and providing long-lasting and beautiful results.
There is no need to decide which filler you prefer before your appointment. During your consultation, you and your clinician will decide which filler is right for you depending on factors such as the location of the area to be treated, the depth of the wrinkles, your age and other factors.
