Which Dermal Filler Is Right for Me?

PLASTIC SURGEON & MEDICAL SPA SERVING BRYN MAWR, VILLANOVA & COMMUNITIES NEAR THE MAIN LINE OF PHILADELPHIA, PA

Posted: April 22, 2019

As we get older, we all begin to notice subtle signs of aging on our face. If fine lines and wrinkles are making you look older than you feel, you may want to consider one of our nonsurgical treatment options to restore a more youthful appearance. Many signs of facial aging can be addressed by dermal fillers.

Dr. Jean understands that everyone experiences slightly different effects from the aging process. As a result, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment that can address the needs of every patient. Each dermal filler we offer at Main Line Plastic Surgery has subtle differences, allowing it to address a specific area of concern. During your consultation, Dr. Jean will recommend the right treatment option to address your unique signs of aging and aesthetic goals.

View our before and after gallery to see the results that can be achieved with injectable treatments.

Restylane®

woman undergoing a dermal filler treatmentRestylane® is one of the most popular dermal fillers we offer. This hyaluronic acid-based injectable adds volume to your face in order to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be sued to plump up sunken cheeks.

At Main Line Plastic Surgery, we offer several different formulations of Restylane, including:

  • Restylane
  • Restylane Lyft
  • Restylane Refyne

The traditional Restylane formulation is specially designed to act similarly to your body’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid. It is an effective way to address:

  • Moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles
  • Nasolabial folds (lines that extend from your nose to the corners of your mouth)
  • Marionette lines (lines that extend from the corners of your mouth to your chin)
  • Thin lips that can benefit from a plumper appearance

You’ll experience results from Restylane almost immediately, and there is no downtime associated with the treatment. Results typically last between six and nine months.

Restylane Lyft, formerly called Perlane, is made of a thicker gel than other Restylane products. As a result, it is an ideal option to address deeper facial folds and wrinkles. Dr. Jean can use Restylane Lyft to treat:

  • Sagging cheeks
  • Age-related volume loss between the mouth and nose
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Laugh lines

While you’ll notice initial results almost immediately, it may take a few days before your final results are apparent. The benefits of Restylane Lyft can last one year, if not longer.

Restylane Refyne uses advanced XpresHAn Technlogy™ to provide additional support for your skin, helping you achieve extremely natural looking results. This formulation can address:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Facial wrinkles

You should see an improved appearance immediately and as with all other Restylane options, there is no downtime. Results typically last six to nine months.

Radiesse®

Radiesse® is a calcium-based filler that helps stimulate collagen production and restore lost facial volume. This provides long-lasting results and a smooth, youthful appearance. Dr. Jean typically recommends Radiesse to fill in deep wrinkles near the mouth and nose. It can also address:

  • Laugh lines
  • Deep scars
  • Areas impacted by lost facial volume
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds

Since Radiesse continues to help your body stimulate collagen production over time, the results are extremely long-lasting. Many patients experience the benefits of their treatment for as long as a year and a half.

Belotero®

Belotero® is a hyaluronic acid-based filler used to plump up your skin and improve the appearance of fine lines and facial wrinkles. While it can be administered anywhere on the face, Belotero is most commonly used to address signs of aging near the mouth, such as nasolabial folds and laugh lines. Results appear almost instantly and can last between six months and a year.
