What Are The Different Types Of Dermal Fillers And How They Affect Your Skin?

With age, our skin’s production of collagen and elastin- proteins that play a crucial role in keeping the skin taut and smooth- begins to decrease. As a result, our skin gradually changes to lose the smoothness and volume associated with youth. Luckily, at Philosophy of Beauty, we are pleased to offer dermal fillers, which are injectables used to restore volume to the face and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, effectively rejuvenating your skin. Our skilled, medical injectors use these subtle enhancements as an art-form to bring out the natural best in each client- softened, volumized but never overdone.

Dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, a molecule naturally found in skin tissue, which is responsible for keeping skin hydrated due to its ability to retain moisture. Because our production of hyaluronic acid decreases over time, hyaluronic acid fillers help to turn back the hands of time by hydrating the skin and restoring its balance.

First introduced in the late 2000s, the original filler injectables on the market contained a high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which worked to add volume to the face. Unfortunately, due to their viscous nature, they resulted in very pronounced, unnatural results and could only be used on individuals with thick skin.

As a result of scientific advancements, a more effective medium molecular weight hyaluronic acid filler was later introduced, which moved in a more fluid, natural way and therefore led to more natural-looking results when injected in several places. In addition, these fillers were customizable, enabling technicians more control in the results they were delivering.

In the 2010s, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid injections were developed, which have revolutionized both the technique and results of dermal filler injectables. These hyaluronic acid fillers work to encourage fibroblasts in the dermis, effectively restoring volume to the entire face. Unlike previous fillers, they deliver incredibly natural results, subtly enhancing the patient’s natural beauty and precisely targeting the selected area of concern. Thus, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid injections are now the dermal filler of choice due to their ability to reduce fine lines and early signs of wrinkles, add volume to aging, dehydrated skin, and effectively treat women of all skin types.

At Philosophy of Beauty, we offer a number of different dermal filler options, including Juvederm, Revanesse, Restylane, Emervel, Belotero, Radiesse, Stylage, and Sculptra, in order to meet the unique needs of each and every patient. These laboratory designed hyaluronic acid fillers are frequently crosslinked, which means that they are available in a variety of thicknesses and can be customized to each individual’s needs.

To learn more about how dermal fillers can be used to enhance and restore your skin, we welcome you to schedule a complimentary consultation with a member of our team of medical professionals, who will listen to your concerns and goals for the procedure, in order to determine the most suitable dermal filler for you.
