How To Choose the Right Dermal Filler

Close,Up,Portrait,Of,Beautiful,Romantic,Woman,In,Straw,Hat Dermal fillers are a simple, less invasive treatment for achieving youthful, rejuvenated skin. They can address fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, and hands. They can add volume to the targeted area, increase collagen production, improve the appearance of scarring, and add balance and symmetry to the face.

If you’re interested in dermal fillers in Calgary, these tips can help you choose the right one for your goals.

Identify Your Aesthetic Goals

The first step in choosing the right dermal filler is identifying your aesthetic goals. Are you looking to restore lost volume in your mid-face? Do you have hollows under your eyes that you would like to improve? Since dermal fillers have different consistencies, it is important to have an idea of what you hope to achieve before treatment.

Doctor’s Recommendations

Your doctor’s recommendations are also important when choosing the right dermal filler. Expert injectors, such as Dr. Jeffrey C. Dawes, understand the complexity of facial anatomy and how dermal fillers can affect its shape and contour. During your consultation, he will assess your needs and discuss which dermal fillers work best for you. For example, he may recommend Juvéderm® to enhance your cheeks or Restylane® Silk under your eyes.

Types of Dermal Fillers

While dermal fillers work similarly to rejuvenate your appearance, they are not all the same. Some of the most popular dermal fillers include:

  • HA fillers: This filler utilizes hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound found in your body. As a water-based filler, it helps plump your skin while keeping it hydrated. Some of the most popular HA fillers are Restylane®, Juvederm®, and Boletero®. All three are long-lasting, usually between 12 to 18 months or more.
  • Poly-L-Lactic Acid: This type of filler helps to stimulate your own body’s collagen. They are used to fill deep wrinkles while simultaneously increasing volume in the temples and cheeks.
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite: Calcium-based fillers are thicker than HA and poly-L-lactic fillers. Radiesse® is a calcium-based filler used to fill deep wrinkles on the sides of the nose and run from the sides of the mouth to the chin.

The dermal filler you choose will depend on your skin type, aesthetic goals, and your doctor’s recommendations.
