All of the facial fillers used by the Art of Natural Beauty Center work to instantly add volume to the area of injection. Filler gels are composed of compounds that imitate the body’s natural texture and are designed to work with the skin to smooth undesired lines and volume loss in the face.
While all facial fillers add volume to the face, their ingredients and texture vary. Juvederm® gel is a hyaluronic acid filler that instantly adds volume to moderate to severe folds in the cheeks, smile lines, and the lips. Radiesse gel adds volume to moderate to severe folds in the cheeks and smile lines while encouraging the body to produce additional collagen in treatment areas. Restylane is a versatile filler that imitates the skin’s natural volumizers and can be used to enhance the lips, fill scars and plump areas of the face that have lost a youthful volume. Belotero Balance is the softest of the facial fillers and produces natural results when treating lip lines, smile lines and the corners of the mouth.
Thicker facial fillers such as Juvederm® and Radiesse can last up a year with an ideal treatment. Softer fillers such as Restylane and Belotero Balance last up to six months. With all fillers, touch-up injections are recommended to maintain optimal results. Typically, less filler (about half) is required for regular maintenance injections.
A doctor will numb the treatment area prior to administering the filler. Some products, such as Juvederm® , contain lidocaine to increase comfort during treatment. Minor swelling and bruising are typical for a few days after treatment, so icing the treated area immediately following the injection is recommended to reduce swelling and recovery time.
