Dermal fillers can be lifesavers when it comes to preserving your image or giving your face that little boost it needs to retain its youthful glow. While there are many options out there, they are not all created equal. It is completely normal (and recommended) that you do your homework before getting any foreign substance injected into your body. Below, you will find some of the FDA-approved dermal fillers available to our Charleston area patients.
Restylane® is a dermal filler approved by the FDA to fill in and diminish severe lines around the mouth. The injectable gel contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that our bodies produce less of as we age. This product adds volume and boosts moisture production for a smoother complexion.
Restylane® Lyft is FDA approved to plump the cheeks and smooth the complexion using the naturally occurring substance, hyaluronic acid. This product also contains lidocaine to ensure that you don’t experience any pain or discomfort during your treatment.
Restylane® Silk is a dermal filler approved by the FDA to add volume to the lips and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. This product uses hyaluronic acid, in addition to lidocaine, to ensure that you achieve a natural-looking result without any pain or discomfort during your treatment.
Radiesse® is FDA approved to treat more severe lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. This is accomplished by injecting calcium-based microspheres that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Radiesse® is injected deeper into the skin and is particularly suited to treat marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and creases around the chin that can give one a dour and aged expression.
Juvederm Voluma® is a dermal filler approved by the FDA to add volume to the cheeks if they begin to sag due to age or significant weight loss. This product uses the naturally occurring substance, hyaluronic acid to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
Belotero Balance® is a dermal filler developed to mold to the unique contours of a person’s face. This product is unique in that it is strong enough to tackle deep folds, but also delicate enough to smooth out fine lines. Belotero Balance® utilizes hyaluronic acid to combine with the skin for a naturally smooth complexion.
