Which Injectable Filler is Right For You?
Dr. Pooja Malik is medical of Mullica Hill Skincare in Mullica Hill, New Jersey, where she helps people look younger through cosmetic skin techniques. Here, she discusses how injectable facial fillers can give you a whole new look, in a simple process that usually requires no downtime and can show immediate results.
A lot of injectable dermal fillers are on the market these days. These non-surgical treatments work by literally filling in wrinkles and fine lines in your skin, plumping the skin up to make it appear more youthful and radiant. Different injectable dermal fillers are used to treat different areas, and what you would need would depend on the aim of your treatment.
For example, Juvederm Ultra is good for reducing the appearance of mild to moderate folds, and also for superficial fine lines. Radiesse would be used for cheek augmentation and moderate to deeper folds in the skin. And both Juvederm and Radiesse could be used for the marionette areas, lines below the mouth which look like the lines a puppet would use to open and close the mouth.
Stimulating Collagen Growth
Radiesse actually stimulates collagenisis, meaning the production of new collagen. That results in increased volume of the skin, which means wrinkle correction. Over time, this injectable dermal filler helps your body stimulate collagen growth, so the whole area around the injection area can look fresher and younger.
Layering of the different fillers can be done for better results. For example, a bigger molecule filler could be injected a little deeper, followed by a smaller molecule filler in the subdermal area. Ask your med spa practitioner for more information about how layering works.
Every Filler is Different
Each filler is a little different from another. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a larger molecule, for example, and it is therefore used for better support and for deeper wrinkles or folds. Juvederm Ultra is a smaller molecule, and it is used to treat mild to moderate wrinkles or lines.
It’s vital that people who are interested in looking younger don’t just go to their med spa and ask to be injected with a dermal filler. It is definitely important to consult with your aesthetic physician to see which one you’re best suited for. And as always, make sure the med spa you visit is certified and licensed before having any work done.
