For those of us who are beginning to show signs of aging, dermal fillers are a very welcome medical marvel. Being able to fill in facial wrinkles and get a more youthful, healthy look is definitely a confidence builder that helps us all live our best life. There are so many different types of dermal fillers, though, that it can become very confusing trying to choose the one that is best for your individual needs. Let’s take a look at some of the most common types of fillers and learn more about each.
Types of Dermal Fillers
Dermal Fillers are substances that are designed to be injected beneath the surface of the skin to add volume and fullness. Dermal fillers differ in chemical makeup, longevity, and in the degree of softness. They come with many different brand names such as Juvaderm, Restylane, Stylage, Teosyal, Bellafill, and more. Many fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body while other fillers can be made of synthetic compounds.
Different types of fillers are designed to treat various signs of aging. Some plump up lips, others fill in shallow areas on the face, some decrease the wrinkle under the eyes, and others can even soften the look of scars. Fillers can last from 12 to 18 months or even longer.
