Comparing the Different Dermal Fillers in St. Louis
If you are considering dermal fillers to enhance your look, you may have noticed that there are a wide variety of available fillers. You’ve also probably seen that each has its own purpose and benefits. We at St. Louis Liposuction Center are giving you a brief comparison of some of the most popular fillers to help you make your decision easier.
Dermal Fillers in St. Louis: What Do They Treat?
The basic answer about what pursuing dermal fillers St. Louis will give you is a treatment for wrinkles and lines. In some cases, they are used to define/plump lips and enhance hollow facial areas. When comparing dermal fillers, it is important not to confuse fillers with wrinkle relaxers such as Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport. These products “release” the wrinkles, rather than plump or fill the treatment area. However, these products can be used in combination with dermal fillers.
Traits of Each Dermal Filler
Here’s a quick comparison about the most popular dermal fillers:
Juvederm is a wonderful option if you want to plump up those wrinkles that are appearing around the mouth and nose areas. Juvederm offers near instant, long lasting results—up to a year before you will need another treatment!
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid-based product that can restore lost volume, along with a rejuvenated appearance. Results will last between six to eight months.
Radiesse is another dermal filler that can effectively improve the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. Radiesse has very long last results—between 12 to 18 months.
Belotero is a hyaluronic acid gel filler designed for fine lines, including those around the lips, nose, and even the neck. Results from Belotero can last between six to nine months.
This filler actually uses the patient’s own fat cells which then act as a natural filler. Fat cells are harvested from a part of the body with excess fat. The harvested fat is then processed to separate the fat cells that are then injected into the treatment site. This type of dermal filler has many benefits, including the fact that there are no risks of allergic reaction or rejection. The results are near-permanent.
