Which Facial Filler Is Right for Me?



Which Facial Filler Is Right for Me?

You may think that all facial fillers and injectables are the same, but this is definitely not the case.
Each kind of filler serves its own specific purpose and is used in a different area of the face. Knowing which filler is right for you can be overwhelming, which is why we are going to break it down for you with this guide.

Which Facial Filler Is Right for Me

Fillers to Get Rid of Fine Lines

If your goal with fillers is to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, you will require a thin hyaluronic acid filler. This is because the filler will need to fill out the tissue underneath and around lines through very extremely superficial injections. Since the filler will be so close to your skin’s surface, you do not want one that is too thick or viscous, as this will give you undesirable results.

Additionally, because this filler is injected very shallow, it will not last very long. After three months, your body will break down the filler solution. You will require multiple touch-up treatments to maintain your desired results.

Lip Fillers

Anytime that you use fillers to enhance the size or shape of your lips, you will need to use a hyaluronic acid injectable. There are a variety of different kinds of these fillers that you can use, such as Restylane Silk, Juvederm, Volbella or Belotero. Each one will achieve a different look.

If you want to create fuller-looking lips, Juvederm is an excellent option as it is the softest and most natural feeling. When treating the edges of your lips, using Juvederm, Volbella or Restylane Silk will ensure they are crisp. Restylane will correct droopy corners as it is a stiffer type of lip filler.

Reverse the Look of Sagging Skin with Fillers

If you are not ready or willing to have surgery to fix sagging skin, fillers can be an excellent option for you. Kinds like Juvederm or Voluma are perfect for this as they are designed to add volume back to your facial features to give the illusion of a lift without having to undergo surgery.

You can combine this kind of filler with skin-tightening cosmetic procedures such as laser treatments to see the best results.

Fillers for Cheek Definition

What kind of filler is right for giving you the look of more defined cheeks will depend on how much volume each individual will need. The different kinds of fillers available for this procedure will create a varying degree of fullness in your cheeks.

However, the general rule of thumb is that if you want to define your cheeks, you will want to use a collage stimulator or a hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvederm Ultra Plus or Restylane Lyft. Using anything too hard or strong runs the risk of giving you overstuffed cheeks.

Use Fillers to Restore Volume

When it comes to restoring lost volume with fillers, which kind is right for you will really depend on how much volume has been lost. It will also depend on which part of the face you want to address. Often, a combination of different fillers can be used in different areas of the face. As each region of the face varies in skin thickness and texture, it only makes sense to use fillers with different thicknesses and textures as well.

For the most optimal results, you may need more than one session.

Eliminate Eye Bags with Fillers

An unfortunate problem with using fillers under the eyes is that they can create a blue undercast, somewhat defeating the purpose of restoring volume to the hollows there. This bluish tint is known as the Tyndall effect and it happens because the skin in this area of the face is extremely thin.

To avoid this issue, using an equally thin and low viscosity filler like Belotero or Restylane Silk is the way to go. They will not show through the skin like other fillers might. The best part is that they are moldable and reversible too so on the off chance that you do not like the results of your cosmetic treatment, you can undo it easily.

While this guide may be able to give you some insight and guidance to which kind of filler is right for you, the best thing you can do is make an appointment with an expert. At McLean Clinic, we offer free consultations for our patients so that they can gain a thorough understanding of what procedures are best suited to the results they are looking for and all that it entails.
