Dermal fillers are an excellent adjunct to many skin renewal plans because they provide results that are immediate yet continue to improve over time. Even the deepest-set wrinkles can be improved with dermal fillers. There are many different types of dermal fillers and strategies for their use which will be explained below.
Best Candidates for Dermal Fillers
You may be wondering if dermal fillers are right for you. If you have experienced facial volume shrinkage due to aging that has led to hollowed cheeks, marionette lines around the mouth or jowling in the chin area, dermal fillers can help. Dermal fillers work by replacing lost facial volume and smoothing moderate to severe wrinkles. The results of dermal fillers appear immediately and typically last between six and 12 months. Men and women of any age who are experiencing common signs of aging can benefit from dermal fillers.
Types of Dermal Fillers
Even though there are a variety of dermal fillers from which to choose, their overall premise of restoring lost facial volume and smoothing wrinkles is the same. Below we will outline our most commonly used dermal fillers and explain how we typically use them.
Restylane® Kysse™ uses XpresHAn Technology™ for flexible movement and natural-looking volume. It enhances the texture and color of the lips while maintaining a full range of expressions. This innovative lip filler allows your injector to craft the lips you want with precise, targeted results. If you are experiencing upper lip lines, Restylane® Kysse™ can smooth them while enhancing lip color and shape.
Restylane® Defyne uses a patented hyaluronic acid gel to smooth away the appearance of moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds and marionette lines. After years of exaggerated and repeated movements of the mouth, it is natural for this area to show signs of aging. Restylane® Defyne is an excellent solution for patients who want to minimize the appearance of deep marionette lines and nasolabial folds without inhibiting normal mouth movements.
Restylane®-L is designed to plump out moderate-to-severe wrinkles around the forehead and mouth. It is a hyaluronic acid filler that is also suitable for enhancing thinning, aging lips. Restylane®-L is unique because it contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that is used to minimize discomfort during the injection process.
Restylane® Lyft is used to augment cheek volume where aging has broken down collagen and elastin, resulting in cheek sagging and volume loss in key facial areas. While minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and lines, Restylane® Lyft also restores elasticity and youthful volume in the cheeks. Additionally, it can be used to “lift” or add volume to various areas of the face, including the temples, or it can be used to fill depressed areas of the nose.
Restylane® Refyne is used to smooth mild to moderate wrinkles and general lines, particularly in the mouth area. Nasolabial folds and marionette lines that often form as a result of repeated mouth movements like smiling, talking and laughing can be reduced or eliminated with this hyaluronic acid gel.
Restylane® Before and After
Restylane® Silk is designed specifically to subtly correct lines and wrinkles around the mouth. It works in a way that allows the mouth to continue its natural movements, all while looking younger and rejuvenated. In addition to enhancing the lips, Restylane® Silk also smooths wrinkles around the lips.
RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) are dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). RADIESSE® is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.
