Injectable Dermal Fillers

  4.9 /5 (41 Reviews)

Injectable Dermal Fillers Dermal Fillers is an overall term given to wrinkle removing injections.  In the past 3 years in particular, a number of advanced dermal fillers have hit the aesthetic market.  Below, we've included a list of tried and trusted dermal fillers, as well as some newer injectables that you may not have heard of.

BOTOX® Cosmetic - Made from refined botulism toxin, BOTOX has proven to be extremely successful at smoothing fine lines and wrinkles of the forehead and eyes.  This dermal filler works by relaxing over-worked muscles, causing the skin covering these areas to smooth out.  While BOTOX is fantastic for the eyes and forehead, it is not recommended for frown lines.  The injection's relaxing effects can cause slurred speech, as well as drooling (which we're sure is not the look you're trying to achieve).

Restylane - This newer injectable is made from hyaluronic acid—a naturally occuring substance in the body.  Restylane generally lasts longer than BOTOX and can be used for lines around the mouth, as well as for lip augmentation.  Unlike collagen, because Restylane is made from natural materials, it does not require a test area before treatment.

Perlane - Perlane is made of the same active ingridient as Restylane (hyaluronic acid), but it has a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid and is therefore better suited for deep lines around the eyes, on the forehead, and around the mouth.  Perlaine generally lasts a bit longer than Restylane, although every individual is different.  It is also a preferred lip enhancement injectable.

CosmoPlast™ - This dermal filler is made of natural collagen rather than bovine or animal derived collagen.  Since this form of collagen is natural, a test spot is not required before treatment as it is with bovine collagen.  CosmoPlast™ is especially good at treatment of deep lines around the eyes, forehead and mouth. As with Restylane and Perlane, it can also be used as a lip augmentation filler.

Radiance/Radiesse™ - Radiance and Radiesse are both made from material found naturally in your bones and teeth.  While both treat the same areas as all of the other injectable fillers already mentioned, the major difference with these two fillers is that they have the potential to last between 2-5 years!  With this in mind, either filler isn't for everyone.  If you are new to the world of dermal fillers, you may want to start with an injectable that doesn't last quite as long to make sure you respond well to these treatments.  Once you're sure you enjoy the results of dermal fillers and your professional, you may want to upgrade to a longer lasting product.

Sculptura - Also known as New Fill, Sculptura is an advanced hydrogel dermal filler that has become increasingly popular over the past few years.  This injectable filler is not made of any animal products, and like the other naturally occuring substances, does not require a test spot prior to treatment.  Another drawing factor of Sculptura is that it's main ingridient, polylactic acid, has been shown to stimulate new collagen growth.

Juvederm - One of the newest hyaluronic acid-based fillers on the market, Juvederm is known for its exceptionally smooth formula and its long-lasting results. While Juvederm is an effective treatment for filling in the nasolabial folds and other common facial wrinkles, its silky smooth consistency has earned Juvederm a reputation as a superior lip augmentation filler option.

What are the Side Effects of Injectable Dermal Fillers?
Most side effects of dermal fillers are minor but include redness at the injection site, swelling, and minor bruising.  You may also feel a slight headache after treatment, which can be alleviated with an over-the-counter pain reliever.

Back to the top

What is the recovery time for Injectable Dermal Fillers?
There is no recovery time needed with most fillers.  Some of the longer lasting fillers like Radiance, Radiesse, or Sculptura can cause soreness at the injection site or a headache, but should not last for longer than a day.  Any bruising generally fades in a few days and can be covered with makeup.

Will my insurance company cover Injectable Dermal Fillers?
Due to the cosmetic natural of dermal fillers, insurance is usually not involved.  However, some providers will cover BOTOX for migraine headaches.

Is there much discomfort for Injectable Dermal Fillers?

"This was my follow-up appointment with the doctor where he continued treating the areas of concern by utilizing a different method. My initial understanding or misunderstanding was that the doctor only provides services once whether it works or does not. I was mistaken, and I appreciate the fact that he does care for his patients' satisfaction and continues treating the area if the progress is not very visible. I really hope that today's treatment will improve the area of my concern and I am glad that the doctor tries different methods to achieve progress. At this point in my treatment, regardless of the final results of my procedure, I will highly recommend Dr. Ourian for all kinds of cosmetic procedures. Staff members are awesome."

"Did not know about financing options and learned during my last visit that Epione does not accept Care Credit. That was a bit of a surprise - given most providers accept it. This was the first place I had learned that does not accept it. Also, wish the prices were a bit lower so we can get more things done. Just a testament to the amazing work they do."
