Why Dermal Fillers?
With time, exposure to the sun, and other harmful elements, the skin begins to lose structure and volume. Dermal fillers are substances that are injected just below the surface of the skin to fill in fine lines, wrinkles, facial folds, and scars, and add volume for a more youthful appearance.
The most common areas treated are the nasolabial folds (lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth), marionette lines (lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin), the lips and fine lines above the mouth, frown lines between the eyes, and acne scars.
Types of Dermal Fillers
There are two main classes of dermal fillers: permanent and temporary. The main permanent dermal filler in use today is silicone. The fillers used at Evolve Medical Associates are temporary and include either hyaluronic acid gel (Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, BELOTERO BALANCE®, and Revanesse® Versa™) or calcium hydroxyapatite (RADIESSE®).
Charlotte dermal filler options
The Restylane® line of dermal fillers are formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body. Restylane® products can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles while also stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. Each Restylane® filler is designed to treat a different area of the face, and there is even a designated Restylane® lip filler for lip enhancement.
The Restylane® line of fillers includes:
- – Restylane® Defyne for moderate to severe nasolabial folds and marionette lines
- – Restylane® Refyne for mild to moderate nasolabial folds and marionette lines
- – Restylane® Lyft for volume loss in the face and hands, and wrinkles in the midface area (formerly called Perlane®)
- – Restylane® Kysse for lip injections
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is a dermal filler from the JUVÉDERM® line of products, using HA as an active ingredient. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC, however, is formulated with larger HA particles, specifically to restore lost volume in the “apples” of the cheeks. Although it does not target fine lines and wrinkles, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC can be used in combination with other injectables.
RADIESSE® serves the same purpose as other dermal fillers: filling in fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. However, unlike our HA fillers, RADIESSE® is formulated with calcium hydroxyapatite, a mineral that is a major component of bone. Like HA, this substance is also naturally absorbed into the body over time, but the results last longer than fillers that use HA.
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a hyaluronic acid filler specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours, adapting within your skin for soft, even, and natural correction. Its versatility makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds, yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines above the mouth.
Revanesse® Versa™ is one of the newest hyaluronic acid fillers in the United States and can be used to address fine lines around the mouth and lips. The HA particles in Revanesse® maintain their spherical, uniform shape, which provides a perfectly balanced appearance and slows the body’s natural breakdown of HA, allowing Revanesse® to last longer than many other dermal fillers.
