Hyaluronic Fillers

Juvéderm, Perlane, Restylane 
Hyaluronic fillers are the most well-known. They also come with the least amount of side effects which are very rare.

Results can last anywhere from a few months to over a year. Often, as you continue these treatments, your body begins to produce natural collagen, and you need less filler over time.*
Side effects are rare but can include redness, swelling, bruising, or appearance of tiny bumps where the filler was injected.*
These fillers strategically plump up areas where volume has been lost and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Lip enhancement is also achieved with these forms of filler.*

*Results for each treatment may vary from person to person. 

Synthetic Fillers

Radiesse, Sculptra, and more.
Synthetic fillers are known to have significantly longer-lasting effects. Therefore, treatments are only required every year or two, and often require just one treatment to retain promising results.*
With longer-lasting, synthetic substances in the body, the side effects are a bit riskier. Side effects may include redness, swelling, bruising, and in sporadic cases, bumps under the skin where the filler was injected.*
Synthetic fillers have proven to significantly reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the face.

These substances are made in a lab and specifically formulated to have the longest lasting, most natural-looking results.*

*Results for each treatment may vary from person to person.

Collagen Fillers

Cosmoderm, Fibrel, Zyplast and more.
These unique fillers are derived from purified collagen, usually, from cows, offer a natural option for improvements.

Because this alternative consists of more natural substances, many believe these collagen fillers offer the most natural looking effect.*
These fillers tend to cause more allergic reactions than others. Allergy testing is recommended before committing to a collagen filler.

Many believe the results do not last as long as alternatives, ranging from 1 to 6 months. However, for some, the fact that it's a more natural option weighs out the downfalls.
These fillers are great for improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles if you are looking for more natural substances and are willing to come in for treatments more often.*

*Results for each treatment may vary from person to person.

Remember...

The side effects listed are very rare. Fillers are an alternative to the muscle freezing option of BOTOX and Dysport for temporary wrinkle reduction.

Dermal fillers are typically safe and should only be injected by an experienced Aesthetic professional. Make sure to inquire about experience and education of those who administer them for you.
