What is the Difference between Facial Dermal Fillers?

Facial Dermal Fillers

botoxA wide range of facial dermal filler injections are available today, which have been approved by the FDA. The ingredients as well as the strength of these med spa filler treatments can vary.
Depending on the specific needs of the patient, the injection provider will recommend the most appropriate fillers. Motykie medical spa provides high quality, proven, and fully suitable cosmetic fillers to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

Juvederm Ultra / Juvederm Ultra XC

Juvederm is one of the most popular dermal filler treatments today. Juvederm Ultra is ideal to treat fine lines and moderate wrinkles on the face. The injection treatment can be used closer to the skin surface and areas with thinner skin, such as the lines around the nose and mouth. Juvederm Ultra XC can be injected into more sensitive areas such as the lips for lip augmentation.
Juvederm med spa filler gel includes hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. This ingredient acts like a sponge and absorbs water, causing the treated area to become slightly plump. Results can last from six months to a year. The XC version contains lidocaine, which avoids the need to apply local anesthetic separately.

Juvederm Voluma XC

Juvederm Voluma is also based on hyaluronic acid, but the concentration of this ingredient is higher. Voluma has been approved by the FDA specifically for adding volume and contour to the cheeks.
People with thin or sunken cheeks can achieve a fuller, rounder look of the face with Juvederm Voluma treatment. Results with Juvederm Voluma can last for as long as two years, making it one of the longest lasting HA-based fillers.

Restylane / Restylane Lyft

Restylane can perform similar functions as Juvederm Ultra, but it is more effectively applied to volumize the hollows under the eyes. It can mitigate the appearance of fine lines and deep folds, plump the lips, and add volume to flattened areas.
Restylane Lyft can perform similar function as Juvederm Voluma, and add substance to the mid-face. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for cosmetic facial filler injections.

Radiesse

The key ingredient in Radiesse filler gel is calcium hydroxylapatite in the form of microspheres. The treatment is used to address more severe facial creases and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It can also be applied to plump up cheekbones, but it is not used in the lip area.
Radiesse stimulates the new production of collagen fibers in the skin in order to create more natural looking and sustainable outcomes. Results with Radiesse can last for up to a year or even more in some cases.

Sculptra

Sculptra is Poly-L-Lactic acid based filler, which works differently from HA fillers. The treatment can be used to build up the cheeks, fill in the hollows and depleted areas of the skin, and increase skin thickness. Multiple treatments of Sculptra injections are usually required for stellar results. The effects can usually last for up to two years.
