The cosmetic industry has come a long way over the years. Today, there are almost limitless choices when it comes to treatments that reduce the signs of aging. But therein lies the problem: how do you choose which kind of treatment is right for you? Dermal fillers are a great choice when it comes to a non-surgical way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as plump up the volume of your face. Yet even in the world of dermal fillers, there are many options.
The Juvederm® family of fillers is one of the most popular kinds of fillers on the beauty market today. There are different kinds of Juvederm® gels that aim to correct different problems. The main ingredient in the Juvederm® family of fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that helps your skin retain moisture as well as volume. As we age, our bodies slow down the production of hyaluronic acid, and this is the main reason why areas of your face become sunken and your skin becomes more aged. Juvederm® is a gel-like filler that is able to fill in your fine lines and wrinkles.
Like Juvederm®, Restylane® is also a hyaluronic acid-based filler and works in the same way. Basically, it fills in areas that have lost volume, and it can minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Sculptra® is different than other dermal fillers. The main ingredient in Sculptra® is poly-L-lactic acid, which is a synthetic substance that helps the skin to produce more collagen. Unlike Juvederm® and Restylane®, you won’t see results right way, because Sculptra® actually encourages your skin to produce your own collagen, which can take weeks.
