One of our most asked questions is ‘Which dermal filler should I opt for’. The answer depends on your desired results. To make it easier for you to decide which type of filler if best for you we have listed some of the most effective ones in this blog post.
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler with a high affinity for water, which means it’s great at retaining moisture thus giving your lips a plumper appearance.
It has a high G prime elasticity, thus is great for giving definition and lift to the lips, while its high viscosity is great at maintaining the shape of the lip. Restylane is great for for those who want to achieve naturally looking lips. The lips feel slightly more firm to touch than the Juvederm family.
It has about one percent cross-linking of hyaluronic acid chains, which has a direct impact on how long it lasts. The results achieved with Restylane can be expected to last anywhere between six and nine months.
Juvéderm Volbella is one of the newest lip plumpers on the market. “It has the lowest concentration of hyaluronic acid and the lowest affinity to water.
It gives a subtle volume that is soft and natural. Although the results are less dramatic, that doesn’t mean they reduce in size more rapidly than the others.
The new Vycross technology increases its longevity by mixing different lengths of hyaluronic acids chains, increasing its stability. Results will last for up to a year.
Juvederm Vollbella is great for giving a soft, natural, plump lip with a long-lasting effect. The translucent, radiant appearance, it gives to the skin makes it look more younger and rejuvenated.
Juvederm VOLIFT is used to achieve a subtle yet highly effective non-surgical facelift. It is administered by adding volume in such a way as to lift the facial contours.
Expect longer lasting results with a longevity of up to 15 months after one treatment.
Juvéderm Voluma is different from other gel-like injectables. It is used specifically in the cheek area to make them appear more plump and youthful.
Juvéderm Voluma instantly adds volume to the cheeks, and can last up to two years with optimal treatment. If you’re looking to restore plumpness in the cheek area, this injectable is a quick, convenient approach to skin care.
Juvéderm Voluma vs. fat grafting
Also referred to as fat transplantation and facial fat injection, fat grafting is the process of taking fat from one part of your body and placing it in another. Often, the fat is removed from the hips or thighs and injected into certain areas of the face to promote a fuller, more youthful appearance. While the process can produce beautiful, natural-looking results, there’s a chance that your body could almost immediately absorb the injected fat cells, or they could die and reverse the effects of the procedure.
