What You Must Know About Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers are the second most popular cosmetic treatment, after Botox. But with the plethora of fillers out there, how are you to know which one is the best for which area? Here are some tips. Feel free to print this out and bring it to your next injectable filler appointment!

Lips: There are a number of great fillers for the lips. Restylane Silk and Restylane Defyne are great to plump up the lips softly. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a lip filler that can give long-lasting results. For a softer, gentler look, consider Restylane Refyne or Juvederm Volbella.

Nasolabial Folds (smile lines): These are the grooves that extend between the sides of your nose to the corners of the mouth. My preferred fillers for this area are Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Lyft.

Cheeks: Adding volume back into the cheeks is one of my favorite things to do. In this area, I prefer Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft. Sculptra Aesthetic is also a nice, longer lasting filler for the cheeks but necessitates multiple treatments.

Marionette Lines: These fine lines and grooves can be challenging to treat. Currently, my favorite fillers for this area are Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne.

Jowls and Laxity: There is a new technique that I’ve been doing to subtly tighten and lift the jawline using Juvederm Vollure. The filler is a little sticky, so it seems to work better to do this versus the other fillers.

These are just a few of the many areas of the face that we can treat with fillers.
