The Best Natural Fillers for a Youthful Look

As we age, our skin loses its natural collagen and hyaluronic acid, which can cause it to lose volume and vitality. Fortunately, there are a variety of natural fillers available to help restore the youthful look of your skin. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are one of the most popular, as they have a soft texture to create beautiful results. HA occurs naturally in the body, so it dissolves naturally and gradually over time, usually between 6 and 12 months, depending on the individual and the product used.

Juvederm Voluma is an incredibly natural looking filler to lift the cheeks and improve volume in the middle of the face. Even one or two syringes can make you look less tired and hollow and subtly lift the sagging jaw line. Our board-certified expert dermatologists can improve the definition of your cheeks and add youth, but no one will know why you suddenly look so good. By offering gradual results, and because it is made of poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra improves volume, tone and texture of the skin. It does this not by filling the empty spaces left by the loss of fat tissues and proteins, but by stimulating the body's own collagen production.

As collagen increases, overall skin health improves. Juvederm is a dermal filler that adds volume to thick lips, fills forehead lines or crow's feet, lifts the face and contours the cheeks. A thin needle is used to inject a clear gel around the lips or the area where the procedure is being performed. A topical anesthetic medication is usually used first to avoid discomfort during the procedure. The gel contains hyaluronic acid, which adds volume directly to the lips, plumps the cheek area and smooths fine lines around the mouth.

Juvederm simply replaces hyaluronic acid lost as a result of aging. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and smooth wrinkles, or improve facial contours. Depending on their unique skin types and facial appearance, many people benefit from different fillers from one or several brands, depending on their ideal cosmetic result. The consistency of a CaHA filler is usually thicker than that of a hyaluronic acid filler and usually lasts longer as well, about 12 months for most patients. Hyaluronic acid fillers tend to be the more temporary option and are therefore often recommended for patients with first-time fillers.

Facial fillers

are popular anti-aging solutions that come with minimal discomfort and virtually no downtime.

However, as our understanding of facial aging has progressed, new fillers have been developed to fill and improve our lips, fill in unwanted gaps under our eyes, diminish the appearance of laugh lines, and more. What you really need to know about dermal fillers is that each filling has a different degree of consistency or thickness. The FDA regulates dermal fillers as medical devices; as reported in clinical trials, the effects of most FDA-approved dermal fillers are temporary because they are made of materials that the body eventually breaks down and absorbs. The injection procedure may have to be repeated to maintain the desired effect. See FDA advice for using dermal fillers safely and learn the difference between dermal fillers and botulinum toxin injectable products. With so many options available for natural facial fillers, it's important to consult with an experienced dermatologist who can help you determine which type is best for you.
