Injectable Dermal Fillers Guide – Which One Do You Need?

Injectable Dermal Fillers

Most signs of aging that are visible on the face can be traced back to loss of volume in the skin. Lines tend to become etched as facial tissues thin out. This is common around the mouth, nose, and cheeks. Dermal fillers can help in replacing lost volume in the skin for smoothing wrinkles and plumping the lips. It helps in restoring a youthful appearance and smoothing wrinkles.

It can be difficult choosing the best option with so many dermal fillers available in the market. You would need an experienced plastic surgeon’s guidance. Each dermal filler product is uniquely created to have a certain injection depth and density. This means that certain dermal fillers tend to work better than the rest.

Motykie Med Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides facial filler injectable treatments for facial wrinkle reduction to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers tend to be gel-like and soft. The results are usually temporary and don’t last longer than 6 – 12 months. The body gradually absorbs the particles. Discomfort is minimized in these dermal fillers with the presence of lidocaine.

Hyaluronic acid med spa fillers that are FDA approved include:

  • Juvederm:  Juvéderm XC, VOLUMA, VOLBELLA, VOLLURE
  • Restylane: Restylane Refyne, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, and Restylane Defyne
  • Belotero Balance

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) Fillers

Calcium hydroxylapatite is naturally present in the bones. The calcium particles in the dermal filler are microscopic in nature and suspended as a smooth gel. CaHa filler has a naturally thick consistency. It is thicker than hyaluronic acid and lasts for about 12 months. The dermal filler is used for wrinkles and deeper lines. Radiesse is an FDA approved CaHa filler.

Poly-L-lactic Acid Fillers

Injectable Dermal Fillers Guide – Which One Do You Need?Poly-L-lactic acid is a biodegradable synthetic substance that is biocompatible in nature. These dermal fillers are classified as collagen stimulators. They work by rebuilding natural collagen in the skin as the main mechanism for smoothing fine lines. The filler gel in this dermal filler can help treat deeper facial wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA approved Poly-L-lactic acid filler.

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) Filler

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) is a biocompatible synthetic substance that is being used in medicine for a major part of last century. PMMA in medical spa dermal fillers is in the form of a tiny ball or microsphere. This remains underneath the skin indefinitely for providing continued support. Collagen is present in PMMA fillers that helps the skin attain firmness and structure. Bellafill or Artefill is an FDA approved PMMA filler.

Autologous Fat Injections (Facial Fat Grafting)

Autologous fat injection is the only dermal filler treatment requiring surgery. However, the results can last for several years. Your fat will be harvested, purified and then injected in the face for restoring volume to the temples, cheeks, lower eyelid, and other facial areas.
