Choosing the Right Fillers

Choosing the Right Fillers

When it comes to restoring your youthful, smooth skin, fillers are generally a great option. Gawley Plastic Surgery surgeons may recommend injectable fillers in addition to your cosmetic procedure to enhance your already outstanding results. However, with endless products out there, how do you know which fillers will work the best for you?

For injection treatments, our surgeons will refer you to Jamie, our Certified PA, Clinical Director, Certified Laser Tech and Expert Injector, to help you determine which filler will provide the results you have been looking for. She will assess certain factors like your age, area of face, volume desired and if you’ve had fillers before to help you make this decision. Before you consult with our staff, here is a quick breakdown of the different fillers available:

HA (Hyaluronic Acid) fillers – a naturally occurring formula

If this is the first time you will be trying fillers, HA fillers may be a great option for you. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your body that gives your skin a naturally full and younger appearance. There are many products that incorporate HA as their main solution.

Thin Fillers – to plump up

Thinner fillers help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles or plump up sensitive areas such as the lips and the area around the eyes. The lips and eyes are two of the most prominent features on your face, which shouldn’t be defined by surrounding lines or wrinkles. Also, the appearance of your smile greatly benefits if your lips are plump and full for a more established characteristic. Restylane or Juvéderm are just a couple of options to help rejuvenate your skin in these areas.

Thick Fillers – for deep wrinkles and lines and sagging features

If you need correction of deeper wrinkles and lines, then a filler with a thicker consistency could be right for you. Fillers that achieve this vibrant skin include Restylane and Juvéderm. These types of fillers are used for fixing sagging jawlines, filling out flat cheeks and subtle brow lifts. This solution works wonders on wrinkles, leaving you with a cheerful and refreshed appearance.

Now that you understand a little more about the various fillers available, it may be a bit easier to make a decision with Jamie during your initial consultation. Make a consultation appointment at MDSkin® Lounge today and enjoy your youthful glow again!
