Juvéderm is a well-known hyaluronic acid filler that is available in several formulas for a variety of purposes. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that creates a firm, plump, and hydrated appearance in the skin. Juvéderm facial fillers can be used to restore volume loss, especially in areas such as the cheeks, lips, or near the mouth. It is a common choice among patients who wish to reduce nasolabial folds or augment the lips for a plumper appearance. Most Juvéderm results last about one year, though some formulas and injection sites can last up to two years.
Restylane is another line of hyaluronic acid fillers. These fillers are designed for natural-looking results. They can be injected in areas such as the cheeks, chin, nasolabial folds, forehead lines, or lips to reduce wrinkles and folds, restore lost volume, and create a smoother and more youthful look. Restylane can reduce wrinkles such as smoker’s lines, marionette lines, or nasolabial folds by replacing lost volume and filling in the lines. Depending on the formula used and the injection site, Restylane results may last from 6-18 months.
RHA Collection dermal fillers are designed using resilient hyaluronic acid, a specialized formula of hyaluronic acid designed to adapt to facial movement and offer long-lasting results. RHA Collection injectables are intended for dynamic wrinkles or folds such as nasolabial folds. These wrinkles occur in areas of frequent facial movement as you speak or express yourself, but are primarily caused by volume and collagen loss over time. The formula was also designed to most closely resemble natural hyaluronic acid for smooth and subtle results.
Sculptra is a unique and long-lasting dermal filler option that uses poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate new collagen production for more youthful-looking skin. This means that the results continue to gradually improve over time as the new collagen grows, eventually creating a naturally youthful look. It is beneficial for smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, and more. Sculptra creates completely natural results that typically last two years or longer.
