Wrinkle fillers are celebrated as the alternative to the traditional facelift. They do not require surgery or long recovery times, are much less expensive, and can be done on your lunch hour. If considering a “liquid facelift,” discuss options with your Beverly Hills dermal filler experts to determine which is best for you.
Let’s take a look at some of the possibilities available:
Juvederm Voluma XC
Juvederm Voluma XC instantly adds volume to the cheeks, an area notorious for looking “sunken in” due to age. A hyaluronic acid filler, Juvederm Voluma XC lasts up to two years with correct treatment. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that hydrates skin, however it diminishes as we get older. Juvederm Voluma XC restores lost hyaluronic acid to reveal smooth, supple skin.
Categorized as a toxin, Dysport is similar to Botox as it features botulinum toxin A. It does not last as long as Botox, however it is not as expensive. It works much in the same way as Botox, as it inhibits nerve and muscle communication to relax muscles and creates smoother skin.
Another hyaluronic acid filler, Perlane is frequently used to treat folds and wrinkles found below and around the mouth, and add volume to the cheek area. It also adds volume to the chin, cheekbones, and jawline, and is used in acne scar treatment.
One of the newer dermal fillers on the market, Belotero is a hyaluronic acid filler known for optimally dispersing into the dermis. It is therefore much less likely to cause the bluish skin tint side effect. Belotero is used to treat “smoker’s lines,” or vertical lines above the lip, as well as “smile” lines, and lines found on the chin.
This filler not only restores lost volume to the face, it also stimulates collagen production, therefore decreasing the need for repeat treatment. It treats deep folds and sunken areas on the face rather than lines and wrinkles.
