Types of Dermal Fillers: What Type is Best for Your Skin

Dermatologists have used dermal fillers to augment volume and contour the face for many years. But which type of dexyrhoea (dermal filler) works best under which circumstance? In this article, you can find out!

Types of Dermal Fillers

When choosing dermal fillers for your skin, it is important to consider the type of filler and its intended use. Below is a list of joint dermal fillers and their corresponding uses:

Hyaluronic Acid

This natural filler is effective for filling in wrinkles; May increase bone density. It can be used in cheek, brow, and lip injections.

Dermal Fillers for wrinkle treatment:

Hyaluronic acid is a popular choice for wrinkle treatment because it does not require downtime, can be injected immediately under the skin, and is safe for both women and men. It’s permanent when injected below the skin’s surface but can be slightly faded over time due to sweat and other environmental factors.

Dermal Fillers for rejuvenating the face:

Hyaluronic acid can help to restore volume and improve appearance by hydrating the skin. It can provide temporary relief from fine lines and wrinkles, as well as crow’s feet and age spots. As with all injectables, pregnancy, breastfeeding and medications may prevent hyaluronic acid from being effective.

Silk Protein

Silk protein is a natural filler that mimics human collagen, which helps to increase the strength of the skin, making it firmer and helping to improve facial jowls and scars. It can be administered either via a dermal filler or by injection.

What are Temporary Fillers?

Three fillers can be used on the face: microfilters, temporary dermal fillers, and permanent dermal fillers. Here’s a brief overview of each type:

  1. Microfilters are tiny packets of material that are injected under the skin to fill in lines and wrinkles. They can be used on their own or in combination with other treatments like Juvéderm or Restylane.
  2. Temporary dermal fillers are similar to micro fillers but last around six months.
  3. Permanent dermal fillers are made from a more solid substance lasting around 12 years.

Now that you know what types of fillers are available, it’s time to figure out when to use them. When it comes to temporary filler use, there is no one-size-fits-all answer since the amount and severity of filler need varies from person to person. However, some tips for choosing a suitable filler include being honest about your expectations with your doctor, evaluating your photos realistically before treatment, and reading product reviews.

Concerning Permanent Dermal Fillers, the proper timing for usage depends on the patient’s age and genetics.

Microdermabrasion: When To Use What Type?

Dermal fillers are a great way to restore the appearance of your skin. However, there is some confusion about when to use which type of dermal filler. Here are the four types of dermal fillers and their respective uses:

What is dermal filler?

Dermal filler is a substance that is injected under the skin to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, or age spots. It is also used to reduce pore size.

What are the different types of dermal filler?

There are four types of dermal fillers: microdermabrasion, ultrasound, collagen, and resurfacing.

  1. Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a dermal filler that involves rubbing the skin’s surface with a diamond-toothed wheel. It is used to remove sun damage and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also used to reduce pore size.
  2. Ultrasound: Ultrasound Dermal Fillers use high-frequency sound waves to destroy the epidermis (outermost layer of the skin). This allows for deeper penetration of the dermal filler, resulting in less redness after the procedure, quick recovery time (1-2 days), and lower downtime.
  3.  Collagen: Injectable Fillers made of all sorts of collagen material. It can be injected directly into the dermis to fill out hollow areas of skin, improve facial volume, or give the skin a fuller appearance. Skin is then insulated with injectable suture gel sacs to maintain its structural integrity.

Botulinum Toxin: When Should You Use It?

Botulinum toxin is a trendy injectable filler for the face, neck, and décolletage. This article discusses the different types of botulinum toxins, when to use them, and some potential side effects.

Types of Botulinum Toxin:

There are three types of botulinum toxin:

  1. Botulinum A (subunit A), which is most commonly used in facial fillers
  2. Botulinum B (subunit B), which is used in neck and décolletage filler procedures
  3. Botulinum C (subunit C), which is investigational and has not been clinically studied as extensively as the other subunits

Manufacturer’s Recommendations for When To Use Temporary Dermal Fillers In Your Face

There are many dermal fillers, so it can be hard to know what type is best for your specific face. Here are manufacturer’s recommendations for when to use particular types of dermal fillers:

A general rule is to use fillers that are less than a year old and have not been used in the same area multiple times. This will help reduce the risk of complications.

If you are nearsighted, wear reading glasses while using fillers. If you need to use facial filler in areas where your eyebrows or eyelashes would be, avoid using semi-permanent fillers near your eyes because they can age prematurely and cause drooping or loss of eyelashes.

If you have a family history of autoimmune diseases, avoid using any filler that contains hyaluronic acid because the body may attack the filler leading to swelling, redness, and pain.

There are many options for dermal fillers, and the manufacturer’s recommendations will vary depending on your individual needs. Remember these tips when choosing a filler to get the desired results.

Addendum: What Is the Difference Between Grafting and Filling?

Dermal fillers, or injectables, are used to augment the appearance of facial wrinkles, acne scars, and other facial areas. Dermal fillers come in various types and can be used with face creams and surgical procedures. Here is a guide to understanding the different types of dermal fillers and when to use them:

1. Radiesse: This is probably the most popular type of filler and is used to treat age spots, enlarged pores, valley dressing (the hollow between your cheeks), and other facial flaws. Radiesse is injected into the skin’s underlying layer and can last up to two years.
