It’s an unfortunate fact of life that the signs of aging typically show on our faces before anywhere else on our bodies. The reasons for this include environmental and contact exposure to irritants, pollution, and UV Rays; repetitive facial expressions; and fat redistribution—all of which can lead to lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and volume loss.
The good news is that today we have access to an abundance of minimally invasive options for restoring youthfulness to the face. Facial fillers, in particular, are some of the most popular non-surgical treatments on the market today.
What are facial fillers and how do they work?
Injectable Facial Fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are specially created formulas that are injected into the face to effectively fill out wrinkles and address the loss of collagen and fat. Dermal fillers are different from formulas containing botulinum toxin in that they address wrinkles by filling them in rather than limiting the movement of the muscles that cause them. Many people appreciate dermal fillers particularly because they allow for full facial expression. Dermal fillers are also a popular option because they tend to last longer than other types of non-surgical facial injections.
With the rise in popularity of facial fillers, the number of options continues to increase. So how do you know which facial fillers are the best? Read on to find out.
Best facial fillers?
The best facial fillers are the ones that work, of course. But that means something different to everyone because the aging process affects us all differently. At Viva Wellness, we have carefully chosen a range of top-notch products that treat a variety of concerns, from volume loss to wrinkles and folds, and everything in between. Take a look below at some of the best dermal fillers on the market, and how they can help take years off your face.
Restylane® is made with hyalurounic acid gel, which not only fills in the wrinkles and plumps up sunken areas, but also draws moisture to the skin, increasing its suppleness and enhancing its texture. Restylane® is best for treating medium depth wrinkles, like the lines that form from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the creases that run from the corners of your mouth down to your chin (marionette lines). Results can last six months or longer. Studies have shown that in addition to filling wrinkles, Restylane® also stimulates collagen production.
Radiesse® is a gel formula that contains calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. The gel works immediately to restore lost volume, while the microspheres begin to stimulate collagen production for natural results that last one to three years. Radiesse® adds lift and fills in smile lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and other signs of aging in the lower part of the face.
The Juvederm® family of facial fillers includes a range of products that address signs of aging all over the face. Like Restylane®, Juvederm® formulas contain hyaluronic acid. Depending on the formulation chosen, Juvederm® can either lift sunken cheeks, smooth and correct lines and creases in the face, or add volume to plump up the lips. It’s also effective in facial contouring, lip augmentation, and the reduction of acne scars. Choose from Juvederm® XC, Juvederm Vollure™ XC, Juvederm Volluma® XC, Juvederm Volbella® XC for subtle, long-lasting results.
