What are Dermal Fillers?
Injected directly underneath the skin with an ultrafine needle, dermal fillers instantly plump volume-deficient areas of the face. They are most often comprised of hyaluronic acid or other substances that are found naturally in the body.
There are several different kinds of dermal fillers on the cosmetic market, all with their own benefits and approved usages. At Rao Dermatology, we currently offer six different dermal filler options:
New to the Juvederm® family of fillers, Volbella® has been FDA-approved to increase lip fullness as well as soften the appearance of fine lines around the mouth for a refreshed, more youthful-looking appearance. The results of Volbella® have been proven to last through one year with optimal treatment.
Approved for use in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is easy to sculpt and in some cases can also be used to volumize the lips in patients who are 21 and older.
Although this dermal filler is in the Restylane® family, it is different in the size of the particles used as well as the depth of injection. Perlane® can be injected deeper beneath the skin surface to treat more severe wrinkles and lines.
Intended for mid to deep dermis injection of moderate to severe wrinkles, Juvederm XC® is known for results that can last for up to one year without additional treatment.
Juvederm Ultra XC®
Modified to treat moderate wrinkles, Juvederm Ultra XC® also features a cross-linked formulation for a consistency that is always smooth. This dermal filler also creates results that can last for up to one year.
For stubborn, etched-in age lines, Belotero Balance® has a unique formulation that completely integrates with your body’s natural skin structure.
This unique formulation of Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres in a gel carrier not only provides instant volume to treated areas, it also continues to improve skin naturally over time for long-lasting results.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Aside from temporary swelling, bruising, redness and itching, patients generally report no major side effects. Certain contraindicating medical conditions may apply, and an allergy test may be performed prior to treatment to reduce the risk of adverse reactions.
