Which Type of Filler is Best For You?
Fillers are gaining in popularity more now than ever before – especially those that leave you with natural-looking results and can make you look younger and more radiant. That being said, research is necessary to figure out which type of filler is best for you, as everyone has different needs and different desires. Luckily, there are many different fillers that you can choose from that can give you the look you are hoping for. Doing some research on your own can usually help you determine which filler is best for you, but it is also important to keep in mind that your doctor can offer you invaluable advice when it comes to fillers – after all, they have been in the business for a while and can offer you recommendations about what would be best for the type of look you are hoping to achieve. Let’s take a look at some different types of fillers and what they work best for, so you can see the difference when it comes to what you may be looking for yourself.
What Are Fillers?
Fillers are injectable treatments that are given via small needles under the skin. Fillers tend to make the area look fuller and more rounded out – whether you are trying to go for fuller-looking lips, cheeks, or other areas. Fillers are also great for smoothing out fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, as well as reducing the appearance of sagging, thin skin. Fillers have been around for a long time, but they are becoming more and more popular as people are getting better at understanding how to apply them more efficiently. Technology is also improving, so there are more kinds of fillers now than ever before. Since there are more types of fillers now, it is also important to note that these fillers often all have their own jobs – or ways that they can help change your appearance.
Botox is one of the most popular fillers on the market today. In fact, it has been so widely used over the years that it is FDA-approved, meaning the Food and Drug Administration has marked it as a safe filler to use for both cosmetic and medical purposes. Botox is an ideal filler to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and face. It works by freezing the muscles that typically are responsible for the appearance of these types of lines.
Dysport works in a lot of the same ways as Botox. In fact, they even share some common ingredients. The difference between Dysport and Botox, however, is in how quickly it works. While Botox may take a few days or weeks for you to see your results, Dysport tends to work a lot faster. This makes Dysport more appealing to those who are looking for a quick fix for a special event or even a date night – and don’t have the time to wait for the results to happen.
Voluma is a special type of filler that is injected into the cheeks. By injecting Voluma into the cheeks, you will see an improvement in the fullness of the face. This filler is great for those who have sagging skin or a more sunken-in appearance, which can happen with age and genetics.
Juvederm is another popular filler that is used to fill out certain areas of the face. This filler is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring acid that helps keep skin looking healthy and radiant.
Volbella is a filler that is made exclusively for the lips. This filler is a non-invasive filler that is injected into the lips in order to provide natural-looking results. Volbella is not an over-the-top type of lip filler, but rather provides subtle, naturally fuller-looking lips.
Restylane is a filler that is getting more and more popular. It is known as the “Non-Surgical Facelift.” The results that some people have from Restylane are comparable to facelift surgery, only without having to undergo the actual surgical procedure. It works on a variety of areas on the face to reduce lines and wrinkles and help the face appear fuller.
These brief descriptions of fillers are only meant to serve as a guide to help you figure out which type of filler that would be best for you based on your needs. If you are looking for lip fillers, Vobella may be your best bet, especially if you are hoping for natural-looking results. On the other hand, if you are hoping to reduce the number of fine lines and wrinkles on a certain spot, such as between the brows, you may choose Botox.
