Facial fillers are a popular choice for those looking to reduce wrinkles and restore volume to their face. Hyaluronic acid fillers are often recommended for first-time users, as they tend to be the more temporary option and generally last 6 to 18 months. Radiesse from Merz Aesthetics is the FDA approved CaHa filling, which is used to soften and minimize nasolabial folds and improve jawline contours. Restylane Refyne and Defyne are the newest hyaluronic acid fillers using innovative Xpreshan technology, which provide lift and volume while maintaining flexibility and facial expression.
For the clear area under the eyes, injecting a thin layer of a more fluid layer of HA that doesn't swell or emit a bluish glow can lift the skin away from the underlying vessels, hiding discoloration and voids. Muscular structural fillers such as Radiesse, Juvéderm Ultra, and Restylane Lyft are commonly used on the hands and jaw. When considering facial fillers, there are many options available depending on your needs and how long you want the effects to last. Restylane-L, Juvederm, Belotero, Voluma, Radiesse, Sculptra, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne, and Restylane Refyne are all dermal fillers that can be used for facial wrinkles, asymmetry, and volume loss.
Fillers should not be used by pregnant or nursing mothers, those with active infections, or those who are allergic to filling components. Side effects of facial fillers tend to go away in seven to 14 days.
