Dermal fillers are injectable fillers that are used to smooth wrinkles, plump lips, and restore youthfulness and fullness to your face. Aging causes a loss of the subcutaneous fat that keeps your face plump and firm. This causes wrinkles and sagging of the skin. A dermatologist can use dermal fillers like Belotero, Radiesse, and Juvéderm XC. Continue reading to find out more about these treatment options for skin wrinkles.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
These fillers are the most commonly used in cosmetic dermatology. Hyaluronic acid fillers are made from a substance that is naturally found in the skin and can stimulate the body’s production of collagen when used over time. In some cases, your dermatologist may be able to use less of this filler than other injectables to achieve the same look. Hyaluronic acid fillers include Belotero and Juvéderm XC.
Synthetic fillers use substances created in a lab. The effects of these fillers typically last longer than the effects of other options. Your dermatologist may offer a synthetic filler such as Radiesse, which is commonly used to treat deep lines around the nose and mouth.
Synthetic collagen fillers are safer and last longer than natural collagen fillers. While the results may not last as long as with other fillers, many people find that you can achieve a more natural look using collagen fillers.
