various types of facial fillers
Calcium hydroxylapatite (Radiesse) is a semi-permanent wrinkle filler that's suspended in an aqueous gel and used to increase soft tissue. This is a collagen stimulator to improve the surface texture of your skin as well as stimulate your own collagen to enable the product to last longer.
Fat from your own thighs or abdomen can be also be injected. There's no risk of allergic reaction, and most people achieve semi-permanent results. Several injections may be required to get the most benefit.
Hyaluronic acid (Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Prevelle Silk, Elevess, Belotero) is a substance normally made by the body that gives your skin its volume and fullness. Hyaluronic acid injections fill the space between collagen and elastin fibers within the skin, which replenishes the natural volume lost with aging. There's no risk of infection, but you will need repeated treatments to maintain the result. Hyaluronic acid also attracts and binds water, which helps maintain fullness where it's injected. Some hyaluronic acid materials are thicker and can add significant volume and structure. Others are smoother and thinner and have the ability to flow more consistently. Juvederm may last longer, maintaining the appearance for up to 12 months with less tissue injury and inflammation.
Poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra) is an injectable filler used to replace lost facial fat. This synthetic polymer has been used for many years in dissolvable stitches and bone screws. This product stimulates the body’s own collagen for better skin texture and a more long lasting result.
Polymethylmethacrylate beads (PMMA microspheres - Bellafill) are tiny round, smooth plastic particles. Thousands of synthetic PMMA microspheres are embedded in cow collagen, which is gradually absorbed by your body and replaced by your own collagen. Since the beads are not readily reabsorbed, and your own collagen is stimulated to form around them, this filler can last for years. Injections are placed under skin folds and in hollows to re-volumize and improve skin tone and texture.
