Dermal fillers have quickly become one of the most popular procedures in the plastic surgery industry because of their ability to reduce wrinkles, smooth lines and provide a youthful contour to the face. You probably have heard of dermal fillers or injectables but aren’t sure which one is right for you. There are several types of popular dermal fillers that help turn back the hands of time and provide a youthful look. Today on the blog, Dr. Preminger shares the ultimate guide to dermal fillers.

Belotero

Most popularly used for the lips and the under-eye area, Belotero contains hyaluronic acid, which the body produces naturally. However, the body’s production of hyaluronic acid slows down and reduces as we age. Belotero has a thinner consistency, making it ideal for restoring volume in the tear trough, under the eye to reverse sunken appearance or rid dark circles, plus it smooths fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. This dermal filler is also ideal for reducing crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. Belotero results are generally some of the most natural because of its thinner consistency, and it won’t result in swelling or puffiness afterward.

Radiesse

Banish wrinkles with this dermal filler anywhere on the face except the eye area and lip area. Composed of tiny calcium-based microspheres, Radiesse can be injected into the cheeks to reduce marionette lines, which is one of its most popular uses. Plus, it boosts the body’s natural production of collagen for months following your injections. Results are noticeable immediately and may last as long as a year. Side effects are rare and short-lived but speak with Dr. Preminger about any of your concerns regarding dermal fillers.

Juvederm

One of the most popular dermal fillers for facial wrinkles, Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid as well. This smooth gel formula contains lidocaine, which makes receiving these injections a more comfortable experience. Juvederm may be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the lips and nose and may provide fuller, plumper lips if desired. Results may last well over a year and can benefit men and women of any age. There are different types of dermal fillers offered by Juvederm, and each of them provides different results. Share your beauty goals with Dr. Preminger during your consultation to decide which Juvederm filler is suitable for you.
