Finding the Best Filler For Your Goals
If you’re considering fillers for the first time, you might be feeling overwhelmed by your options. With so many different fillers available, how can you know which one is right for your needs? The ideal first step is to meet with a qualified injector. But doing some research before your appointment can help you ask informed questions and think through your cosmetic goals. The best filler is one that leaves you looking like your beautiful, natural self – just with a gentle boost.
We’ve compiled a list of ideal fillers by treatment area below. Once you’ve learned more about your options and are ready to take the next step, reach out to schedule a complimentary filler consultation.
Common Filler Recommendations by Treatment Area
Best filler for cheek volume
Before and after Restylane Contour
Volume loss is one of the most noticeable signs of aging, but it often goes overlooked. When you lose volume in your cheeks, this contributes to fine lines and wrinkles across the face. Sagging cheeks also make you look tired and impact your facial structure. Fillers appropriate for cheek volume tend to have a more robust formula. We typically recommend either Restylane Contour or Juvederm Voluma. These fillers are designed to add volume back to the cheeks and allow for natural-looking facial movement as you smile, speak and emote.
Best filler for lip lines
Our lips are so delicate. Because they play a big role in our facial expressions, they acquire lines and lose volume over time. Smoker’s lines are thin vertical lines that appear above and below the lips. They make it especially difficult to wear lipstick because the tint can bleed into the lines. Restylane Silk is an ideal option for smoothing these narrow lines in a subtle, effective way. Restylane Silk uses smaller hyaluronic acid particles to nicely fill the skin without extreme-looking results.
Best filler for lip enhancement
Small tweaks to our lips can go a long way. Lip filler allows you to make careful adjustments to unleash your perfect pout. Increase lip volume, highlight your cupid’s bow, make your smile more symmetrical – it’s all possible with Restylane Kysse. This dedicated lip filler offers natural-looking results and expression. It’s the first HA filler specifically formulated for organic-looking lip enhancement. Patients also love Kysse because there is minimal downtime or side effects following treatment.
Best filler for ongoing collagen production
Most dermal fillers offer immediate results, but those will always be temporary. As the filler dissipates in the months following injection, the volume will diminish and the results fade away. Sculptra offers an ongoing opportunity to increase collagen production. Sculptra is injected into the deep dermis, where it both restores facial volume right away and also stimulates the skin to produce fresh collagen in the months that follow. This is due to micro-particles in the filler that trigger new collagen strands. Results last up to two years.
Best filler for smile lines
Nasolabial folds are the deep lines that form around your mouth (also known as parentheses). These can become pronounced and detract from our overall appearance, especially as we age. A few different fillers provide excellent results for smoothing smile lines, and we typically recommend Restylane Refyne or Defyne. Both are appropriate for moderate to deep facial lines. Your injector will discuss your goals and examine your facial lines to decide which filler is likely best. A combination of fillers may also be helpful to deliver precise results.
Best filler for under eye circles
A tear trough is a deep hollow between the upper cheek and lower eyelid. These can be dark or puffy, and can make your eyes appear tired no matter how much cover up you apply. These under eye bags or circles can be effectively treated with fillers. Restylane offers a gentle way to add volume to the area and smooth the skin. This helps improve both dark under eyes and lines that have developed between the eyes and upper cheeks.
Best filler for crow’s feet
Crow’s feet are thin networks of lines that extend out from the far corners of the eyes. Depending on the way your facial lines have developed, either filler or a neuromodulator like Botox or Dysport could offer great results. Restylane Refyne can provide subtle smoothing for crow’s feet. Meet with one of our injectors to learn what they recommend for your needs.
