As always, the pace of change in the world of medical aesthetics treatments is dizzying. It seems there’s something new and shiny being added to the range of beauty-enhancing options, every day.
And dermal fillers are no exception.
Injectables have evolved precipitously since their introduction. Now invested with superpowers (of a sort), they’re not only able to reduce the appearance of lines, but to prevent them. They’re also able to induce the production of collagen and elastin, creating a more youthful, fuller appearance.
It’s amazing what today’s injectables can do, so this post is dedicated to the next generation of dermal fillers.
Over a decade of dermal fillers.
First mover, Restylane, was approved by the FDA in 2004. More than a decade later, this injectable is a household name and is joined by a complement of other dermal fillers, like Juvederm.
But formulations are changing and being refined. The latest dermal fillers boast longer lasting results and some of them are also reversible, in the event of adverse reactions.
Vycross technology is the reason that today’s fillers have such properties. Featuring hyaluronic acids of varying molecular weights, the next generation of dermal fillers promises to outperform predecessors.
The goal of restoring lost facial volume has a friend in Voluma. Specifically addressing the cheek area, Voluma’s formulation is thicker than the dermal fillers of the past, adding significant volume to the cheek area and the upper 1/3rd of the face.
Approved by the FDA only last year, Volbella is part of the Juvederm family of injectables. By addressing the feather lines which form around the lips vertically, this dermal filler doesn’t impart the dreaded “trout pout” some fillers for use in the lip area are known for.
The nasolabial folds (marionette lines) extend from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth. Before Vollure, which has only been approved for use this year, fillers used on this area only lasted about 6 months. Vollure has an effect which endures for 3 times as long – 18 months.
Dermal fillers answer the needs of many people looking to restore lost facial volume, due to aging. Unfortunately, they’re too often administered by those who lack a fundamental knowledge of the face’s muscle groups and sub-structures.
That can mean poor positioning of product and a distorted appearance. Visiting a professional practitioner with a stellar reputation is the only way to avoid a disappointing result. Despite the incredible efficacy of these products, when they’re not applied with extensive knowledge by an experienced practitioner, you may find the results unsatisfactory.
