Understanding the Types of Fillers and Choosing the One That's Right for Me

You know dermal fillers can rejuvenate your face, reducing the signs of aging and turning back the hands of time to give a more youthful appearance. But with so many choices, which type is right for you?

The aesthetic experts at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals have you covered. We’ve done your homework for you and created this guide to the different types of dermal fillers. Led by Angie Bjorgaard, RN, BSN, our team offers a comprehensive line of services to help men and women in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, look and feel their best.  

Let’s take a closer look at the different types of dermal fillers, so you can better understand which ones might be right for you.

What are dermal fillers?

Safely injected below the surface of your skin, dermal fillers are gel-like substances used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore the volume your skin naturally loses as you age. Different dermal fillers produce different results, and they can be used to address issues in many areas of your face. Some can even erase years from the backs of your hands! 

One of the best things about dermal fillers is that they are made from substances you already produce in your body, like collagen and hyaluronic acid. This means that when administered by trained experts, like the team at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals, they’re safe to use and have minimal side effects.

What are the different types of dermal fillers?

At Sublime Aesthetic Professionals, we offer an excellent selection of the most trusted and effective dermal fillers available to address different needs. Here’s a closer look at our selection:

Sculptra® Aesthetic and Radiesse® 

Both Sculptra Aesthetic and Radiesse harness the power of your body by boosting your natural collagen production to restore lost facial volume and minimize the appearance of folds and wrinkles. Natural-looking and long-lasting results occur gradually over time as collagen production ramps up.

Juvéderm® XC and Juvéderm Vollure® XC

The Juvéderm collection works especially well at returning fullness and volume to the skin tissues surrounding your mouth (the parentheses lines) and plumping your lips. Since it uses hyaluronic acid, which your body produces naturally, these sensitive tissues typically receive the injections without issue. 

Juvéderm Voluma® XC

Hollow cheeks and sunken temples can reveal your age as much or more than wrinkles do. Juvéderm Voluma XC adds much-needed volume to add lift and contouring where you need it most, and this FDA-approved filler lasts up to two years.

Belotero®

Belotero is great at smoothing parentheses lines and the folds that can stretch from your nose to your mouth, and its soft, cohesive nature makes it perfect for molding facial contours and adding volume and structure. It’s even a good choice for smoothing lip lines.

Restylane®

Restylane adds volume and fullness to your skin and offers help for patients hoping to erase moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. This clear gel formula also works to define and plump your lips after one treatment session.

Restylane® Defyne™, Refyne™, and Lyft™

Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne both use hyaluronic acid to minimize the appearance of laugh lines while helping you keep your expressions natural-looking when you frown, smile, or pucker up for a kiss by using a technology called XpresHAn™ to balance lift with skin flexibility, providing natural-looking results. Restylane Lyft provides a safe way to boost drooping cheeks and address deep wrinkles, lines, and folds. 

Revanesse® Versa™

Revanesse Versa is a multi-purpose dermal filler that provides smoothness and volume to your skin. While balancing with the natural water content of your skin it helps keep you from looking overly treated or not treated enough. This easy-to-manage filler helps keep you in control of the volume and placement you desire from your fillers. 

Bellafill® 

This collagen-based dermal filler offers the longest lasting effects (five years) for patients hoping to erase nasolabial folds. It works by using tiny PMMA microspheres that hold up well over time. It’s also useful in treating pitted acne scars and restoring lip volume. 

Which dermal filler is right for me?

It’s best to consult with an aesthetic expert before choosing a specific dermal filler. Your provider at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals has the experience needed to help determine which filler is right for you based on the areas you’d like treated and your skin. 

Once you and your provider have selected a dermal filler, you can receive your injections in the office in just minutes. Side effects are rare and usually resolve quickly, and the most common include redness, bruising, swelling, or bumps at the injection site.
