Choosing the Right Dermal Filler

Many visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss. Facial tissues thin as you age, causing lines to become more prominent and cheeks to appear hollow. Fortunately, various aesthetic treatments can be used to combat these unwanted effects.

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected beneath the skin to create or replace lost volume and restore a more youthful appearance. Knowing what dermal filler to choose can seem daunting, especially with so many options available. Having a private consultation at Lee B. Daniel Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will allow our aesthetic specialists and board-certified plastic surgeon to custom tailor a treatment plan that will work best for you.

Types of Dermal Fillers

At Lee B. Daniel Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of dermal fillers to choose from, each with different characteristics to meet the individual needs of our patients. These include:

Choosing the right dermal filler will depend on multiple factors, including your goals, areas of concern, and how much filler is needed.

Consider Your Treatment Goals

What do you want the dermal filler to do? What do you hope to achieve from the treatment? Knowing your aesthetic goal is one of the most important factors when choosing a dermal filler. There are several things you can achieve with fillers, including:

  • Filling in lines and wrinkles that develop as a result of collagen loss
  • Adding volume to specific areas like the lips and cheeks
  • Providing a subtle lift to make a sagging area of your skin appear firmer

If you want to plump up the cheek area, a dense dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® XC could be an excellent option. On the other hand, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC works wonders for adding fullness to lips and softening the lines around them. Regardless of your aesthetic goals, there is an option for you.

How Long Do You Want Results to Last?

When deciding which dermal filler is suitable for you, it is important to consider how long you can go between touch-ups. Treatment results from some fillers last a few months, while others, such as VOLUMA®, can last up to two years, depending on the thickness of the filler and how quickly your body metabolizes it.

Consider Aesthetic Plastic Surgery for Your Dermal Filler Treatments

With the help of a qualified and experienced aesthetic specialist, dermal fillers can provide natural-looking results that boost your confidence and provide positive changes to your social life and outlook. Choosing the right dermal filler should ultimately be left to the discretion of a highly educated and trained injector. For this reason, choosing who does your treatment is the most crucial factor, and it is essential to research your options before making an appointment so you can achieve beautiful lasting results.
