What are Dermal Fillers?

Fillers such as JUVÉDERM® Ultra, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus, Vollure®, Volbella®, Voluma®, Volux®, Restylane® L, Restylane Lyft®, Restylane Silk®, Restylane Refyne®, Restylane Dyfine®, Restylane Contour®, RHA2®, RHA3®, RHA4®, Redensity, Radiesse®, and Sculptra® are all types of dermal fillers of various classifications that offer lasting wrinkle correction. These fillers are safe and natural cosmetic products that correct moderate facial wrinkles and folds such as the smile lines, vertical lip lines, “marionette” lines at the corners of the mouth, and tear troughs. These fillers can also be used to re-establish more youthful facial contouring and create a non-surgical lift. Some fillers can be used to improve skin texture, stimulate collagen, and improve skin hydration. There are 3 types of absorbable (temporary) fillers that we use on a regular basis: Hyaluronic Acid fillers (the Juvederm family, the RHA family, and the Restylane family of fillers), Calcium Hydroxyappetite (Radiesse), and lastly, Poly-L-Lactic Acid (Sculptra). These treatments are one of the cornerstones of facial rejuvenation, allowing years to be erased without surgery.


What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a large molecule that is naturally found in the human body and almost all living organisms. The HA found in JUVÉDERM® and other products on the market comes from bacteria. The main difference between the HA found naturally in your body and those found in fillers is that the HA in injectable fillers is cross-linked to each other via a glucuronidate molecule. The body has natural enzymes called hyaluronidase that breakdown the HAs into sugar and water. The HA fillers as a whole are the most versatile fillers available.
