How to Choose the Perfect Filler for Your Face Goals

How to Choose the Perfect Filler for Your Face Goals

 You’re fortunate now to have so many treatment options at your fingertips for improving the appearance of your skin, no matter what it is you want to change. Age-related issues are top-of-mind to many, and some of the most transformative treatments are dermal fillers.

They fall under the larger category of injectables, but the right treatment for you depends on what problem you’re trying to address. As your face ages, you develop two distinct types of wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the deep lines that years of repeated muscle movements etch into your face (crow’s feet, vertical lines between your brows, and frown lines). Neurotoxin treatments like Dysport® immobilize those muscles and smooth your skin, refreshing your appearance.

Static wrinkles affect your skin’s texture, giving it a crepey, shriveled look that develops due to the natural loss of collagen and elastin, two proteins we make that give our skin its resilience and keep it tight and supple. When you want help with static wrinkles, dermal fillers are the right treatment choice.

Dr. Sharon Gertzman and the Serenity Medical Spa team offer the safest, most effective filler treatments that can turn your skin situation around completely, bringing it from “blah” to “aah!”

What problems can dermal fillers solve? 

Dermal fillers are so popular that, at this point, over 3 million people receive treatment each year. They’re amazing in that they:

In addition to solving a multitude of facial flaws related to aging, dermal fillers offer other significant benefits, including ease of treatment — sessions are comfortable, completed within 30 minutes, and require no downtime on your part. You can also see natural results very quickly after treatment, though they vary according to the area of your face and the particular filler you and Dr. Gertzman choose. 

What are my dermal filler treatment options?

You have several options to choose from at Serenity Medical Spa. Dr. Gertzman has chosen them carefully and vetted them for their effectiveness:

1. Hyaluronic acid fillers

These fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance your body makes — though it makes less the older you get. Hyaluronic acid is important because it stimulates collagen production, the vital protein that gives skin its resilience.

RestylaneRefyne works on dynamic lines, especially smile and lip lines, lasting up to one year.

Restylane Defyne is ideal for deeper laugh lines, filling nasolabial folds, and sculpting the chin. Results last six months to a year, depending on which area of your face we treat. 

The RHA family of treatments includes:

RHA stands for resilient hyaluronic acid, and these fillers have the distinction of addressing both static and dynamic wrinkles, but not in the same way as Dysport. Rather than paralyzing the underlying muscles, RHA fillers adapt to your facial movements without restricting them. RHA ReDensity results last up to a year, while studies have shown RHA2, RHA3, and RHA4 to have results that last up to 15 months

2. Radiesse 

This treatment adds volume and supports your skin by encouraging collagen production, and does so thanks to calcium-based microspheres. Radiesse addresses deep nasolabial fold lines, defines your jawline, and even restores a youthful, taught appearance to the skin on your hands.

Expect Radiesse results to last about a year.

3. Sculptra 

Sculptra’s key ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid, which causes gradual improvement in your treated area. It’s particularly good for adding volume to the mid-face region but not recommended for the lips. Results last an impressive two years. 

We know you’ll be thrilled with the results of your dermal filler treatment, no matter which one you and Dr. Gertzman decide is right for you. 

There really isn’t any reason not to love all of them — dermal fillers are comfortable (you just feel a slight pinch briefly), noninvasive procedures that aren’t time-consuming, you can go back to living your normal life immediately after treatment, and with most of them, you see results by the time you’re walking out of our office — additionally, because they’re long-lasting you don’t have to come back for a while! 

Dermal fillers solve many problems, but you still look like you!
