Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation with Temporary and Long-Lasting Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be used to provide a holistic and non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation.

In fact, these cosmetic injectables are often administered in conjunction with one another to customize treatment of volume loss, sagging skin, hollowness, and contour irregularities.

In addition, filler products vary in particle size and depth of injection to specifically address each patient’s anatomy, concerns, and aesthetic goals.

Here’s how temporary and long-lasting dermal fillers can combat the undesirable effects of aging.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a non-surgical method of correcting facial wrinkles, creases, volume and fat depletion, decreased collagen production, and skin laxity.

They provide significant improvement in a patient’s overall facial structure and can even be used to sculpt and lift the face when moderate to severe folds are present.

What Are Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in connective tissue. When injected under the skin, it instantly attracts moisture and can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water.

Therefore, it’s an excellent plumping agent and can temporarily increase fullness and soften lines and wrinkles in the cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, temples, under eyes, and hands.

Popular hyaluronic acid fillers include Belotero Balance, Juvéderm, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, and Voluma XC. In the hands of a skilled and experienced injector, these products produce natural-looking results that last six-to-12 months.

What Are Long-Lasting Dermal Fillers?

In addition to hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, polylactic acid, and polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres can restore volume and stimulate collagen for a refreshed and more youthful appearance.

Additionally, these fillers may be recognized by their brand names – Radiesse, Sculptra, and Bellafill respectively – and offer patients long-lasting benefits for one-to-five years.

All three of these injectables are also FDA-approved and considered safe and effective for deeper facial wrinkles and folds, age-related volume loss, and acne scars. They can even serve an alternative to surgery by facilitating a liquid face lift.
