What facial fillers are best?

As we age we lose facial volume. Fillers, if you’re unfamiliar, can re-establish that lost volume in areas like cheeks (mid face), around the mouth, and in deeper folds. They can also be used to enhance facial features such as lip and cheek. The confusing part about fillers is determining which facial fillers are the best. That’s where your WDC experts come in, so have no fear!

Most of the fillers we use are hyaluronic acid fillers, which we refer to as HA fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found throughout our bodies and does not require skin testing prior to HA injection. If you are new to filler injections we typically start with an HA filler, since typically there is not an adverse reaction to it and we have capabilities to dissolve it if need be. A couple of common products we use are Juvederm XCJuvederm Voluma XC, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm VolbellaRestylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne.

There are a couple of things your skincare experts think about when determining what facial fillers are best for you.

  1. What area of the face would give you the most bang for your buck?
  2. What bothers you the most when you look in the mirror?
  3. Your budget

The dermal fillers that we choose from vary in particle size, cross-linking, cohesiveness, concentration, and water affinity.  Your expert injectors have tons of experience with the dermal filler choices and determining which one’s are best for your treatment area and personal skincare goals.  Our best advice is to come in for a complimentary consult and we can break down exactly what products and how many syringes we would recommend, as well as, pricing.  The beauty of filler is not only it’s longevity, but the ability to customize it as well.  Call 910-256-4350 or email to setup your consult today!
