What Can Face Fillers Treat?
Face fillers are known to treat wrinkles and fine lines, especially in areas that lost their volume, sagging skin, and areas where there is loss of collagen due to aging. Most face fillers use a substance called Hyaluronic Acid. This is a natural filler already found in the body.
Part of the aging process is the decrease of collagen and loss of volume in the face. These lead to some skin aging signs to show up. The face starts to develop marionette lines, deep nasolabial folds, lip starts to thin, deep mentalis folds show up, and corners of the lips start to turn down. All in which makes a face look older. This is where Face Fillers come in.
Restylane and Juvederm are popular brands of Hyaluronic Acid fillers that are used to improve the appearance of aging skin. They can be used for lip augmentation, filling in pitted scars, treating deep wrinkles, and increasing volume where there is fat loss.
This works by filling up areas that are prone to sagging to regain the natural volume and fullness, for younger-looking skin.
Face fillers may also be combined with other cosmetic treatments for more rejuvenating effects.
What are Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?
Hyaluronic is used for facial contouring, as well as reduce depressions caused by scars. This is a natural substance found in the body. It can be found in your cartilage, joint fluid, connective tissues, and in skin tissues.
Fillers containing hyaluronic acid is very well tolerated. Side effects from this substance are rare but include swelling, redness, and bruising at the injected area.
Hyaluronic’s main ability is to deliver moisture to the skin and hold it so the skin can effectively absorb it. The hydrating powers of this carbohydrate molecule make a face plump, which smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Filler treatments that use HA make the skin plumper, reduces the appearance of aging and improves contours.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the most commonly used type of dermal fillers. It is injected into the facial skin to smoothen out the complexion. Most treatments are temporary since the substance will gradually breakdown and be absorbed by the body. The augmentation usually lasts 6 to 12 months. To maintain results, it is recommended to have repeat treatment or top-up treatments.
Most people are suitable for hyaluronic acid filler treatments – since this acid is already found in the body, there is no risk of any allergic reaction. But it is still best to consult your doctor before undergoing any procedures.
Juvederm Fillers for Face
Juvederm is a well-known dermal filler that is hyaluronic acid-based. There are several Juvederm products available that are tailored to target specific needs. They all have the same goal of addressing the facial signs of aging.
Production of collagen and natural hyaluronic acid in the body decreases as part of aging. This leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. The facial structure slowly loses its volume. Juvederm treatment is usually used in the lips, cheeks, and around the nose and mouth area. It works effectively by using hyaluronic acid fillers and other active ingredients to add volume to the facial tissue. This is a collagen stimulating procedure that helps achieve plump skin.
Are Juvederm fillers safe?
Just like any other treatment, some people may not be suitable patients for this particular procedure.
Juvederm should not be used on people with a history of anaphylaxis or multiple severe allergies.
- Get treatments from experienced and licensed physicians
- Have it in a medical setting and not in a home or kiosk
- Inform your doctor if you’re taking any medications that can prolong bleeding and bruising. Also, include any supplements you’re taking because some may interact with ingredients in the fillers.
- Be aware of the ingredients to determine whether you’re allergic to ant of the components (e.g., collagen)
- Tell your doctor if you have a history of excessive scarring or pigmentation disorders
To ensure a proper and safe procedure, have your Juvederm Treatment administered by a board-certified dermatologist.
How long do Juvederm fillers last?
Juvederm products are made up of various molecular structures. The molecule structure and the technology used to create the filler product are what determines how long the results may last. The duration of the treatment will depend on the type of product and the injection site. There are several Juvederm products such as Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Ultra, and Juvederm Ultra Plus.
Since muscle movement gradually breaks down dermal fillers, the area injected will determine how long results will last. If Juvederm is injected around the mouth area where there is a lot of movement, the product may last about 4 to 6 months. When injected in regions with moderate muscle movement, such as under the eyes, it may last from 9 months to a year. The more treated areas move, the shorter the results last.
The doctor will thoroughly assess your skin and lifestyle and design a customized treatment for you that may last the longest. The formation and depth of your wrinkles and fine lines will also play a role in your doctor’s estimate.
Expect Juvederm to last from 6 months to a year. It is best to consult your doctor to find out how long treatments can last on you.
Restylane Face Fillers
Restylane is another brand of dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid and is a collagen stimulating treatment. It is used for fine line and wrinkles, lip enhancement, minimizing dark under eye circle, and adding volume to areas in the face, such as the cheeks.
This works by injecting targeted areas with a solution consisting of hyaluronic acid and other active ingredients. Restylane is designed to target visible signs of aging. It can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, add volume and fullness to the face. Restylane uses natural and bio-degradable substances, minimizing the risks of allergies.
Restylane treatment requires minimal downtime. Some swelling, redness, and numbness may be felt in the injected area. These side effects will go away after a few hours after treatment. You may experience slight discomfort when you’re injected using a fine needle. However, Restylane contains numbing agents that reduce the feeling of discomfort. Numbing cream and topical aesthetic may also be used along with ice.
Which filler is better Juvederm or Restylane?
Both facial fillers are ideal treatments when it comes to enhancing facial features.
Juvederm and Restylane involve using hyaluronic acid to plump up the skin. They are both non-invasive procedures that come with minimal side effects. The procedure is very similar wherein the formula is injected to the targeted areas. These treatments can make your lips fuller, add volume around your cheeks, and be used for facial contouring.
Despite these similarities, they also have their differences making them unique in their own way.
When it comes to texture, Juvederm is smoother while Restylane is more “gel-like”. This makes Juvederm easier to use on very small lines, but may be the wrong choice for sunken areas of the face.
Because of the cohesive texture of Restylane, it stays intact where it was injected. But doctors will need to mould the material into the desired shape. Restylane gives you more options, which makes it a better choice when trying to build volume.
Both Juvederm and Restylane lasts for several months. For both brands of hyaluronic acid filler, results can last as long as 9 to 12 months. However, keep in mind that the duration of any type of filler will still depend on the individual since some people have a faster rate of absorption.
Juvederm and Restylane excel in different areas of the face. Speak with your doctor about facial fillers and allow them to help you choose which one is right for your needs.
