Injectable dermal fillers are a popular choice for patients looking for a convenient and effective method to eliminate signs of facial aging and restore a more youthful appearance to their face. Patients benefit from having a variety of advanced fillers to choose from, each with its own set of benefits and advantages. This blog offers a brief look at some of the most popular fillers.
Popular Injectable Fillers
- BOTOX® Cosmetic: BOTOX is not only the most popular dermal filler, it is among the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. BOTOX can rejuvenate a patient’s appearance by smoothing signs of aging including crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows, and lines around the mouth, across the forehead and on the neck. BOTOX treatments take only a few minutes and require no downtime. The results of BOTOX typically last about six months.
- Sculptra® Aesthetic: Sculptra is an advanced facial filler that is sometimes referred to as a “liquid facelift.” This filler boosts collagen and restores volume to correct sunken and hollow features. In addition, it tightens the skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance. Results can last anywhere from two to five years, making Sculptra the longest lasting filler available.
- Dysport®: Dysport is similar to BOTOX in that they are derived from the same active ingredient and therefore can be used to treat the same areas and correct the same conditions. Dysport carries some advantages over BOTOX in that the treatment areas extend further from a single injection and results tend to be longer lasting. Dysport results are visible within one to seven days following treatment, with most patients seeing results around the third day. The effects can last up to 13 months in some patients.
