Different dermal fillers offer varying degrees of longevity, with some lasting up to two years. Understanding the duration and maintenance required for each option is vital in selecting the filler that aligns with your lifestyle and commitment level. So don’t hesitate to ask your provider how long particular fillers last and how often you may need touch-ups.
When it comes to choosing a dermal filler, understanding the specific types can provide clarity in what can feel like an overwhelming sea of options. Different fillers have distinct characteristics, and each is designed to target specific areas or concerns. Here's a breakdown:
Often used to smooth wrinkles and add volume to the lips, hyaluronic acid fillers are known for their ability to retain moisture and promote a plump, hydrated appearance. They’re among the most popular fillers, with brands such as Juvederm® and Restylane® offering different formulas to suit different needs. Here at Medical Aesthetics & Laser, we mainly use the Juvederm line of fillers.
These fillers help firm up areas they’re injected into, which can help soften deeper lines and add definition to areas like the cheeks. Radiesse® is a well-known brand that utilizes calcium hydroxylapatite, providing results that can last up to two years.
If gradual, subtle enhancement is your goal, poly-L-lactic acid fillers, such as Sculptra®, may be the ideal choice. They work by stimulating the production of collagen, offering natural-looking enhancements that build gradually over several treatment sessions and can last up to two years.
The expertise of the provider plays a crucial role in achieving satisfying results. The application of dermal fillers is an art that requires precision, skill, and an understanding of facial anatomy.
Medical Aesthetics & Laser prides itself on having a team of highly trained and experienced professionals. We’re committed to excellence in both technique and patient care. Our team will guide you on your options and help you select the one that suits you the best.
