If you’ve done even minimal research on FDA approved fillers, you know there are a lot of options! And the good news is that they are are all excellent, safe products. Most use hyaluronic acid, which already exists in your skin, or another naturally derived substance as the main structural component.
Over time, your body safely and naturally absorbs the filler. We offer the following options at Ditesheim Cosmetic Surgery in Charlotte:
This soft, smooth hyaluronic acid gel is excellent for treating lines around the nose, mouth & chin, and can also be a good option for lip enhancement. Lasts 6 to 12 months for most patients.
Also made from hyaluronic acid, Restylane is great for fine to moderate facial wrinkles and is FDA approved for lip enhancement. It lasts about 6 months, making it a great option for first-timers.
A close relative to Restylane, Perlane has larger particles of hyaluronic acid designed to treat more pronounced creases around the nose and mouth.
This versatile filler is made from calcium hydroxyapatite, and can last 1 year or longer. In addition to restoring volume, Radiesse stimulates natural collagen production, so skin’s firmness continues to improve.
This newer hyaluronic acid filler uses a slightly softer gel that is designed to conform to your skin naturally and evenly, making it a good option for nasolabial folds and vertical lip lines alike
Safe, cost-effective and versatile, dermal fillers can be the perfect introduction to facial rejuvenation for younger patients, or the perfect complement to facelift surgery naturally restoring volume to enhance the results.
The different filler options can sometimes be overwhelming. Many of them are so similar, so which should you choose? Depending on your unique facial anatomy, what kind of results you would like to achieve and your areas of concern, you may find one filler to be a better fit.
