Dermal Filler Options: Things You Need to Know

Dermal Fillers Dermal fillers fill an important role in the world of beauty. The more we have come to understand what contributes to youthful facial contours, and what depletes them, the more options we’ve seen developed. Fillers and other injectables have been some of the most popular treatments for well over a decade. We are pleased to offer options to help our patients achieve their desired outcome. Here, we discuss why those options are so valuable by comparing two products, Juvéderm and Sculptra.

About Juvéderm

When we refer to Juvéderm as just “Juvéderm,” we give the impression that it is a single product. It’s not. Juvéderm is a family of dermal fillers, each made with hyaluronic acid. Several types of Juvéderm exist because each has a particular particle size of hyaluronic acid to achieve specific consistency. Product density matters because the skin on various areas of the face is different. We needed a Juvéderm product that was soft and supple for the lips. We need one that is more structural to contour the cheeks. Some of the areas commonly treated with Juvéderm products include the jawline, lips, creases around the nose and mouth, cheeks, and under the eyes.

Juvéderm offers the benefit of immediate reward. As soon as the filler is introduced beneath the skin, it begins to bind to water molecules. The increase in water molecules plumps the skin to smooth wrinkles or build contours. Depending on the particle size used, Juvéderm may last from 3 months to 2 years.

About Sculptra

Sculptra is often called a dermal filler but it’s more than that. This product is made of particles of poly-L-lactic acid. It was first approved by the FDA to correct the facial atrophy that often affected HIV patients. Today, Sculptra is used to correct signs of aging that make the face look gaunt. Examples include deflated cheeks and narrowing at the temples. Sculptra does not fill in areas of deflation immediately, it works by stimulating an increase in collagen production. Collagen is a vital protein involved in supporting firm and supple skin. To achieve a sufficient level of collagen production, 2 to 3 Sculptra sessions are scheduled. The production that occurs after this series of injections can sustain a more youthful face for 2 years or longer.
