As we age, the fat, muscles, bone, and skin in our faces start to thin. This can make our faces look sunken or loose. Dermal fillers have become more popular because they can quickly restore this lost volume without downtime.
Suppose you’ve ever been curious about facial fillers, their ingredients, how they work, and the different brands available. In that case, Kor Aesthetics will guide you through this post.
What are Facial Fillers?
Dermal fillers, also called facial fillers, are gel-like substances injected under the skin to restore lost volume, smooth out lines and wrinkles visible when the face is at rest, and lift sagging tissues.
In addition to making the skin look younger, dermal fillers are often used to make the cheekbones and jawline stand out, to add volume to the buttocks and lips, to make the hands look younger, and to fix a cosmetic nasal deformity.
How Long Do Fillers Last on The Skin?
Dermal fillers stay under the skin for an average of 6 to 12 months, depending on what they are made of and how they were made. Read on to find out how different long types of filler last.
Filler Treatment General Cost
Most hyaluronic acid fillers, like Restylane and Juvéderm, cost between $550 and $850 per syringe on average. Radiesse costs between $550 and $750 per syringe, and Sculptra costs about $900 per vial (most people need two to three vials per session).
Bellafill, on the other hand, costs about $1,000 per syringe. Dermal fillers can cost more or less depending on who you get them from and where you live. However, prices that are too far below average are a red flag: your safety or results could be affected.
What Are Fillers Usually Made of?
Dermal fillers add volume, lift sagging skin, and make more collagen. Still, they work in slightly different ways and are made in somewhat different ways.
Also, some fillers are made from things that already exist in nature, while others are made in a lab. Here is a list of the most popular dermal fillers, ordered by the main ingredient they contain:
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers – The Safest Fillers
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a gel-like substance that occurs naturally in the body. It helps keep our skin looking plump, hydrated, and young. Most hyaluronic acid fillers last 6 and 12 months before the body absorb them.
The following brands of dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to improve different parts of the face and body:
This filler includes Juvéderm XC, Ultra, Ultra Plus, Vollure, Volbella, and Voluma. Juvéderm XC and Vollure are great for “filling in” nasolabial folds.
- Juvéderm XC can help restore lost volume in the chin and mouth, while Voluma and Ultra Plus are made for deep injections into the cheeks and chin. Marionette lines, or the “parenthesis” that form around the mouth, can be fixed with Vollure.
- Juvéderm Ultra is usually used to make the lips more prominent, while Volbella is excellent for removing vertical lip lines.
This filler includes Restylane, Silk, Restylane Lyft, and Restylane Contour. Restylane Refyne is great for nasolabial folds and marionette lines that aren’t as deep. At the same time, Restylane Defyne is excellent for deep folds around the mouth. Most of the time, a contour is used to fix sunken cheeks.
It is used to fix the folds between the nose and mouth and the corners of the mouth. It is also used to make the lips bigger. While RHA 4 is the thickest of the RHA fillers. It is used to fix severe volume loss in the cheeks, chin, and jawline.
“RHA” stands for “resilient” hyaluronic acid because these fillers are made to smooth out even the face’s most dynamic and wrinkle-prone parts.
Hyaluronic Acid at KOR Aesthetics
Hyaluronic acid, which is what KOR facial fillers are made of, helps to replace the facial volume lost with age. With fillers, you can expect your face to get more hydrated, your lips to get fuller, and your wrinkles to get smaller.
Have we got acne scars? Fillers can also help eliminate depression on the face caused by acne scars! Because as we get older, the parts of our bodies that hold us together start to break down. This makes us sag, lose our flexibility, and age faster than we should.
Dermal fillers can change the way you look without making it look unnatural. They can also last for a long time. When placed correctly, fillers make a face look younger and can’t be seen.
At KOR Medspa, we offer dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE® to help add volume and refresh the skin.
Over time, this acid is broken down by the skin. Fillers for the face last a long time. Depending on some factors, they can last anywhere from six months to two years.
