Dermal fillers - which one is right for me?

Updated: Jan 14



Chances are you have at least heard about dermal fillers - from friends or relatives and definitely from social media. Last year over 7.3 million injectable fillers were performed in the United States alone. More and more women are interested in learning about how these popular treatments can enhance their beauty and correct aging. But with so many excellent products on the market, where do you even start? Hopefully we can clear up some confusion and point you in the right direction.

All dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid - a carbohydrate that naturally occurs in the body. HA gives the face that youthful, lubricated, supple appearance. The deepest layer of skin is composed of hyaluronic acid and collagen—and as we age, our reserves of both are naturally depleted.

The job of the dermal filler is to replace what nature has lost. When injected directly into a specific area, the filler will combine with water and swell, ultimately smoothing and filling lines and wrinkles restore natural looking volume.

The filler choice is based on your treatment goal. Some products are smoother and thinner and work on areas that need movement and expression, while others are firmer and provide volume to a specific area that doesn't require as much movement. Some lines are deeper requiring thicker filler and some are more subtle requiring a thinner filler. The filler you need will depend on what is your area of concern. Read on:

My face looks flat and I literally have no cheekbones!
