Facial fillers, also known as dermal fillers or wrinkle fillers, are injectable substances designed to fill in lines, wrinkles or even skin folds to make the client look younger and more refreshed. They differ from BOTOX® injections in that they don’t involve relaxing the facial muscles.
There is no one “best” filler. The face is three-dimensional and has layers of bone, muscle and soft tissues like fat and skin. Also, no two faces are exactly alike. Different fillers work best on different layers or on different parts of the face. With that being said, Juvederm® is one of the best fillers out there, partly because it has hyaluronic acid at its base.
Types of Facial Fillers
Facial fillers fall into different categories. Most, however, are derived from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a versatile substance that can be used almost anywhere on the face. One of the great things about this acid is that it is naturally produced by the body. So, the chances of the client having an allergic reaction are minimal.
Although hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, its levels decrease as a person gets older. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles begin to develop. Hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers like Juvederm® work to restore this reduction in hyaluronic acid, thus, restoring a more youthful appearance.
Another way to categorize facial fillers is by their weight or heaviness. Juvederm® is considered to be a light filler, providing natural-looking results that are smooth and even.
Dermal fillers have been used for decades and are generally quite safe. Juvederm® is considered among one of the safest types to use, as it is one of the least likely to cause side effects. It has been approved for use by the FDA.
Facial fillers are considered medical procedures. They should, therefore, only be performed in a medical office with sterile equipment and not in a hotel, resort or private residence. Our medical professionals are highly qualified and well-trained when it comes to filler injections. Client safety is very important to us.
