The look of love starts with a lovely face. While facial fillers are stigmatized as a procedure that freezes your face, gets rid of your expressions, and looks totally unnatural, the opposite is true. Here’s some of the best advice you can get from our Miami filler doctor.
Our Favorite Facial Fillers
You may not have heard of this particular filler, but it’s incredibly effective. Perlane, one of the many FDA-approved facial fillers we provide at the Miami Center for Dermatology, helps patients increase the volume in their cheeks.
Specialists utilize this injectable anti-wrinkle treatment and dermal filler for implantation into the skin to correct facial wrinkles and sunken cheeks, as well as the shaping of lips, midface, and chin. Additionally, Perlane injections help smooth acne scars and fill hollows beneath the eyes, giving you smoother skin and a more naturally youthful face.
Juvéderm Voluma XC™ is the latest FDA-approved hyaluronic acid soft tissue filler. The filler has been available for use in Europe for over 12 years and has been used in 72 countries throughout the world. Comprised of a lidocaine formula, Juvéderm Voluma XC™ is one of the few facial fillers that are comfortable during the treatment.
This filler is also known as Voluma XC injectable gel, and it was the first filler to be approved by the FDA to instantly display increased volume in the cheek area. The treatment provides a subtle lift, helping to restore both contour and more overall youth to your profile. Be mindful, however, that the treatment is for patients over the age of 21 and results last for up to two years. Because of the rapid results associated with this facial filler, it’s perfect for getting the young look of love just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Another one of our favorite facial fillers, Restylane, smooths the wrinkles around your mouth. The Restylane treatment adds volume and fullness to the skin while correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
This includes the lines from your nose running to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). An FDA-approved treatment, Restylane is a safe method of facial rejuvenation. Developed in sterilized labs, Restylane reduces the risk of outside contaminants, as well as the chances of infection or any detrimental side effects.
Which Facial Fillers Should I Use for My Face?
Our Miami filler doctor, Dr. Longwill, will help you decide which facial fillers are best for you, depending on which parts of your face you want to enhance and improve.
For example, if you are thinking about adding definition to your jawline, Juvéderm Voluma XC or Restylane Defyne are great options, especially if you would like to enhance your posterior jawline. It’s important to use the right filler when building onto bones like your jaw.
The same goes for your chin, but there are slight differences. Since defining the chin usually requires projection from underneath, our Miami filler doctor recommends Restylane Lyft or Juvéderm Ultra XC. This would be done by using a needle, and Juvéderm is a great option for a long-lasting hyaluronic acid filler.
As for your cheekbones, there needs to be more a lift in order to define and shape them. Facial fillers with a high G prime and particle size are recommended, such as Juvéderm Voluma XC and Restylane Lyft. Thick fillers such as these provide structure and support to the face.
