Three Dermal Fillers to Make Facial Lines Go Away
Cosmetic injections are among the most popular treatments performed across the country today, and it’s easy to see why. From restoring a more youthful appearance to reshaping flat features to simply enhancing your overall look, the benefits of cosmetic injectables can be very appealing to men and women of virtually any age. For patients specifically looking to smooth out static lines and deep facial folds, dermal fillers are a fantastic option. At Bloom Medical Group in Whittier, CA, board-certified physician and certified aesthetic injector Dr. Nasir Mohammedi offers a comprehensive range of wrinkle reduction treatments, including injectable dermal fillers, to meet the diverse needs of his patients and help them look and feel like the best version of themselves. In this blog, we’ll examine three of the most in-demand dermal fillers and discuss how each one can be used to target facial lines and wrinkles.
What do fillers do?
Dermal fillers are injected into targeted areas of the face or body in order to restore lost volume, augment flat features, or smooth out the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Some of the most common cosmetic concerns that can be addressed with injectable dermal fillers include:
- Static lines
- Deep-set wrinkles
- Facial folds
- Thin lips
- Hollow cheeks
- Circles under the eyes
- Weak chin
Which filler should I get?
The best filler for each patient will depend on a number of personal factors, including the nature of the patient’s concerns, their specific goals, and others. Three of the most widely used and highly regarded dermal fillers for facial lines and wrinkles include:
- JUVÉDERM®: This hyaluronic acid (HA)-based filler can be used virtually anywhere on the face to fill in lines, wrinkles, and folds – as well as to add volume to deflated features. JUVÉDERM Voluma is particularly useful for adding volume to hollow cheeks for a more youthful overall appearance.
- Restylane® Refyne: The Restylane family of fillers also contains HA, which helps to provide natural-looking results. For laugh lines specifically, Restylane Refyne creates a smoother, softer look that appears natural rather than artificial or overworked.
- Restylane Defyne: Deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines are well suited to treatment with Restylane Defyne, which is also designed to allow patients to maintain a more natural look and keep their work discreet.
During your initial consultation for filler injections in Whittier, CA, Dr. Mohammedi will carefully evaluate your features, discuss your specific concerns, and explain all of the products in great detail to help you decide which filler may be most appropriate for you.
Do I need fillers or BOTOX®?
Oftentimes, patients are uncertain about whether they need fillers or wrinkle relaxers. Dermal fillers, like JUVÉDERM, are used to add volume and fill in static lines and wrinkles – meaning those that develop as a result of lost volume and skin laxity. Injectable wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, aim to smooth out dynamic lines and wrinkles – which are caused by years of repetitive facial expressions and muscle movements. For example, Crow’s feet, frown lines, and lines between the brows can be dramatically improved with injectable wrinkle relaxers. In many cases, a combination of fillers plus BOTOX can provide patients with the most complete treatment and the most pleasing outcome possible. If you are interested in the possibility of pairing fillers with wrinkle relaxers, don’t hesitate to bring this up during your consultation.
