Types of Anti-Wrinkle Fillers

There are various types of anti-wrinkle or dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Perlane, Radiesse, Restylane and Voluma.Let us talk about them in brief.

1.  Juvederm
Juvederm treatment is done using hyaluronic acid and it can smoothen lines, wrinkles and give plump lips along with adding volume to the face. The Food and Drug Administration approved this anti-wrinkle filler treatment in 2006.

Using hyaluronic acid (which is naturally produced in the human body)Juvederm adds volume and fullness to facial tissues. It also regulates collagen, which improves the quality of your skin and makes you look younger. he results of a Juvederm treatment can last up to a year.

2. Perlane
Perlane is also based on hyaluronic acid which is usually found abundantly in younger people.

This treatment is about injecting the substance deep into the skin, which helps get rid of wrinkles and also helps in giving an attractive and younger appearance.

3. Radiesse
Radiesse is a cosmetic filler that induces the human body to generate more collagen in the injected areas of the face. This treatment adds volume to facial tissues, removes wrinkles and gives your face a younger and fresher appearance.  

4. Restylane
Restylane is a popular anti-wrinkle filler that rejuvenates skin and gives it a radiant look. In the US, more than 1.4 million dermal-filler treatments are based on Restylane. This treatment helps to smooth laugh lines and give fuller lips.

5. Voluma
As humans age, the mid-section of the face shows the most obvious signs of aging, including sagging or drooping cheeks. Due to this, a dull and sunken look results despite having good health. This is where Voluma can turn things around for you.

Voluma treatment contains Hyaluronic Acid or HA; thisHA attracts and holds water and thus hydrates the skin. In addition, it combines with the collagen and elastin in the skin to improve elasticity and it also gives structure to the skin.

Anti-wrinkle fillers are a perfectly safe treatment procedure. However, it is crucial for you to find a reputed dermatologist with extensive knowledge, expertise, and a proven track record. Keep in mind that expert dermal fillers will never leave any traceable signs of treatment. Trout pout and duck lips are the signs of a filler gone wrong. However, when an experienced dermatologist injects, the filler will look natural. The changes will be subtle yet it will enhance your appearance.
