arly aging signs that first show up on your skin include crow’s feet, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. With the production of elastin and collagen slowing down, your skin loses volume and looks dull. The risk of hyperpigmentation in the sun-exposed areas also increases. The wrinkles and fine lines deepen over time. Eventually, your skin loses elasticity and volume, thus giving you a sagging neck and face.
Injectables can help restore your skin elasticity and volume. These non-invasive procedures work wonders for those looking to address skin concerns and retain their youthful appearance. Each filler is used to treat a specific skin condition. For instance, some fillers add volume to your lips, while others fill fine lines. Some injectables are designed to restore firmness in the loose areas, such as your neck and cheeks. So, how do you choose the right cosmetic injectable for you? Here’s the guide to selecting the best filler.
Hyaluronic Acid Filler for File Lines
The best injectable filler for fine lines depends on where these are located and how deep they are. Dysport and Botox are your go-to injectables for fine lines on the forehead and around brows. However, a vast majority of women experience small lines at the bottom of the face. For these areas, you need a thin hyaluronic acid.
The light serum combined with thin injections can fill small spaces quite effortlessly and without affecting the tissues located underneath the surface. Juvéderm and Restylane are your best options for small fine lines. You could also use this filler for filling the fine lines located on the sensitive areas around your mouth.
Belotero is another choice for small to moderate fine lines. While these injectables are great for your small fine lines in the bottom area of your face, the results do not last long. Since they are thin injectables, you will need a touch-up every 6 months to maintain the same youthful look.
Use Hyaluronic Acid Filler for Lips
Add volume to your lips with lip fillers rich in hyaluronic acid. Different types of lip injectables are used to enhance the size and shape of your lips, although each one comes with its share of benefits and drawbacks. A few popular choices for lips enhancement are Juvederm, Restylane, Kyss, Defyne, Refyne, and not to mention, Botox.
Juvederm and Restylane are the best choices for women who want a youthful and natural appearance. It gives the softest look to your lips. This cosmetic injection is also used for refining the edges of your lips, giving them a perfect shape. Volbella and Restylane are most commonly used for treating small gaps in your edges. Restylane is firm. It enhances the sagging edges of your lips. You can consider one injectable or use Restylane and Juvéderm combined. This is especially recommended for areas on your face that require a significant volume.
Thicker Filler for Adding Volume to Your Face
The best cosmetic injection for restoring volume to your face depends on the area you are treating and how much volume you want. Botox might be great for your lip enhancement and moderate fine lines, but it doesn’t work for areas that have lost significant volume. For older people who’ve lost skin elasticity and volume, a combination of thicker fillers is advisable. Consult a Cosmetic Physician to know your options.
Most specialists recommend Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane Lyft. These injectables add the right amount of volume to your lower and upper face. If you are looking for a more natural injectable, try Sculptra Aesthetic. It boosts collagen production and helps you achieve young-looking skin. It’s ideal for both male and female patients. Whichever injectable you choose for facial volume, make sure that it requires multiple sessions for long-lasting results. Plus, it might take some time for the results to show up after each session.
Use Fillers Made for a Lift
Fillers can lift your sagging skin to some extent, although they don’t guarantee long-lasting results. Use Juvederm or Radiesse to lift the sag and restore your skin elasticity. These fillers are made for restoring volume to your face, which in turn gives the illusion of elastic, smooth, and firm skin.
Dermatologists use volume fillers in conjunction with skin-tightening procedures to volumize your face while lifting the sagging skin. These fillers might not have the same results as invasive surgical treatments, but they make a great choice for those looking for minimally-invasive skin tightening and lifting procedures.
Use Collagen Stimulator for Cheeks
If you like plumped cheeks that add natural softness to your face, collagen stimulator cosmetic injections are for you such as Sculptra and Radiesse. Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella, Refyne, and Restylane Lift are ideal injectables for cheekbones and the lower part of your face that needs volume. Stuffed cheeks look pretty on certain faces. If you want a cute and plumped look, you should give these collagen stimulator products a shot.
Achieve a slimmer, young-looking, and contoured face with Kybella. It includes a variety of cosmetic injections that kill fat cells in your skin, especially under your chin. If you have a double-chin or an overstuffed cheekbone, use Kybella to get a contoured and defined jawline. You can also discuss alternatives to injectables, such as CoolSculpting and Ultherapy.
Fill Hollows Under Your Eyes
Your under-eye area is the most sensitive and delicate part of your face. It’s extremely thin, which makes it prone to pigmentation and other skin problems. While some cosmetic injections are approved for your under-eye treatment, you should discuss the risks with a skin specialist before considering fillers. A common problem people experience with under-eye fillers is the Tindal effect—a blue tint. Belotero and Restylane Silk can be used under your eyes, as they contain light serum. The results can also be reversed if you are not satisfied.
