Your Guide To Cosmetic Fillers – Which Injectables Are Right For You?

POSTED ON THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 2017 AT 3:10 PM  by Dr. Jody Levine

Which cosmetic injectable is right for you? These hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can provide temporary, natural-looking volume without the need for any downtime! Though each cosmetic injectable can reduce the signs of facial aging and accentuate facial features, they are designed to target specific conditions. Thinner dermal fillers, like Belotero® and Restylane®, can treat fine lines, Juvéderm® can plump the lips, Voluma® can address hollowed cheeks, and Radiesse® can volumize the lower face. These cosmetic fillers may also be combined to achieve substantial results in one comprehensive treatment. See which filler(s) can best fit your procedure goals below.


Belotero® is specially designed to target fine lines close to the surface of the skin. Belotero® has a thinner, lighter consistency than other dermal fillers, making it an ideal option to be injected superficially to fill mild facial lines around the chin, mouth, and lips, as well as under the eyes.


Restylane® fillers can accomplish a variety of procedure goals. Restylane® Silk is a lighter option that can target superficial smile lines, as well as wrinkles around the eyes. Additionally, Restylane® Silk can be used to plump the lips. Restylane® Lyft is a thicker filler that is injected into the deep dermis to provide natural-looking volume. Restylane® Lyft can fill hollowed cheeks and moderate-to-severe wrinkles around the midface.


Juvéderm® dermal fillers can volumize superficial facial wrinkles, as well as deeper folds. Juvéderm® fillers are extremely versatile and can target nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lip lines. Juvéderm® Ultra is thinner and ideal for fine lines found closer to the surface of the skin, while Juvéderm® Ultra Plus is thicker and designed to treat deeper wrinkles and creases.


Voluma® can add lift and fullness to the cheeks. This filler has a thicker consistency than most other cosmetic injectables, allowing it to be injected into the deep dermis to correct hollowing. Voluma® can achieve longer-lasting results than other hyaluronic acid-based fillers.


Radiesse® can restore lost volume to the lower face and reduce sagging by adding lift to your facial features. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Radiesse® is made from calcium-based microspheres, which help restore fullness and encourage the production of new collagen to enhance skin structure and elasticity. Radiesse® can target the chin, as well as wrinkles around the mouth.
