Your fat, bone, muscles, and skin in your face thins as we age. This often leads to fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and a sagging appearance. Millions of people decide every day to get dermal fillers to tame these problems. Fillers offer an excellent way to enhance cheekbones, plump lips, contour jaws, rid of undereye bags, and more. Finding the best filler for you means knowing the differences between the latest innovations for dermal fillers. Do you know if hyaluronic acid or biostimulating fillers are best for you? Don’t worry if you aren’t sure yet. We’re here to break it down for you so that you better understand dermal filler choices.
What Is Injectable Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is injected into problem areas as a temporary filler. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in your body, attracting water to help your skin’s hydration levels. Injectable hyaluronic acid is used to boost your face’s framework, structure, and volume of your face and lips. Effects are fast but temporary as the injectable gel is absorbed into the body over time. Some of the most common HA fillers we offer include Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero. We also carry our exclusive designer RHA line of hyalauronic acid fillers. These fillers don’t stimulate collagen production, but they do enhance the contour of areas in your face.
What Are Biostimulating Fillers?
Biostimulating fillers are made with ingredients like calcium hydroxylapatite and polylactic acid that stimulate collagen production. Once we inject these fillers into your skin, the gel works to fill in wrinkles and add volume as collagen production increases. Even after the gel is absorbed into your body, the boost in collagen production continues to add volume to your face. Our most popular biostimulating treatments include Radiesse and Sculptra Aesthetics. Since biostimulating fillers continue to boost collagen production over a long period of time, you’ll get an immediate result with the added bonus of a preventative anti-aging effect.
Main differences between Hyaluronic Acid Fillers and Biostimulating Fillers
Choosing the best filler for you is a decision unique to each patient. Some of the main differences to consider include:
- We can dissolve hyaluronic acid fillers if you aren’t happy with the end product.
- Biostimulating fillers last a longer length of time, so it’s important you’re comfortable with specific fillers in your face.
- Biostimulating dermal fillers continue to produce collagen, improving the appearance of skin after the filler is gone.
- Hyaluronic acid fillers are better for treating fine lines and wrinkles, while biostimulating dermal fillers are perfect for treating larger areas of the face.
- If you want quicker results, hyaluronic acid results will appear in less days.
Which Dermal Filler Is Best For Me?
We’ll discuss the problem areas of concern to determine the best filler for you. The most important thing is to decide the area you want to treat and measure the degree of volume loss. Each patient has different goals for their body, but most usually want to look and feel fresh, young, and healthy. Both types of dermal fillers are non-invasive and can be done on your lunch break. When you want to rejuvenate the look and feel of your skin, either type of dermal filler is an excellent choice. At OMNI SCULPT MD, we offer the highest quality dermal fillers with proven results.
