Which Dermal Filler is Right for You?

Dermal fillers have helped individuals in Hacienda Heights, California and around the country find relief from fine lines and wrinkles. These are often two of the first things to make us feel aged and treating them is often very important for many. Through dermal fillers, many have found success, but with so many available, deciding which is right for you may be a confusing proposition. Take a little time to do some research, consider the benefits of each, whether allergies should be considered and how each option may satisfy your goals. Also speak with a medical professional in the Hacienda Heights area to help you determine which is right for you.

Determining what each is made of is often one of the first steps to take. JUVEDERM®, Restylane and Perlane are composed of hyaluronic acid, while Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxyl apatite and Sculptra is made of poly lactic acid. Collagen is used to make Artefill (bovine collagen), Cosmoplast and Cosmoderm (human collagen) and Evolence (porcine collagen).

Also consider the areas and types of wrinkles that each dermal filler treats. For instance, JUVEDERM®, Restylane and Perlane may be used to treat the nasolabial folds, lips, around the mouth and the cheeks, while Radiesse may be used to treat the nasolabial folds, cheeks, temples, around the mount, but may not be used in the lips. Dermal fillers treat different areas of the face, and determining which areas you'd like to treat and then determining which dermal fillers may provide treatment of those areas is obviously an important step.

Be sure to consider the longevity of the results as well. As a general rule, more expensive options such as Sculptra and Artefill last the longest (several years), while less expensive options such as Cosmoplast and Cosmoderm may last just two to six months. Other moderately priced options may last in the six to nine month range. Most dermal fillers require just one session to reach desired results, although Sculptra requires several over a series of months, but those whose results last months instead of years may require more maintenance session to maintain the results of the treatment.

When you're considering dermal fillers to treat fine lines and wrinkles in the face, make sure that you consult a medical professional in the Hacienda Heights area. Doing your research isn't difficult, and doing so will help to ensure that you're left with satisfactory results that you're looking for.
