There are many different types of dermal fillers to close from, they mainly can be decided into:
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based dermal fillers:
The most popular and widely injected class of dermal fillers is mainly composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a sugar produced naturally in human dermis [skin]. When injected, HA molecules bind with water molecules to add volume under the skin by expanding, to smooth wrinkles and folds, plump lips, and raise/remove scars. The effects of HA dermal fillers usually last between 6 and 12 months depending on the movement of the area.
We offer various brandname HA fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma, Volbella, and Belotero.
Poly-L-lactic Acid based dermal fillers:
Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic and is a powerful tool in correcting shallow to deep nasolabial folds (i.e., smile lines), contour deficiencies, and other visible facial wrinkles. Sculptra’s effect is twofold: filling in lines and wrinkles and by stimulating the body to produce its own new collagen and underlying tissue, creating a fuller, more youthful appearance. Sculptra takes a few months to show its true results [although there will be a noticeable volume change] as collagen is built up and last up to two years.
Radiesse is a safe, FDA-approved dermal filler that restores a natural, more youthful look. Radiesse is used mainly to treat areas with obvious signs of facial aging, Radiesse is a powerful tool that rebuilds your skin’s foundation and restores your youthful look with the use of calcium. Its unique contouring ability and flexibility allows physicians to treat large areas of the face in one procedure.
