Your Comprehensive Guide to Injectable Dermal Filler Brands

When it comes to non-invasive, non-surgical facial enhancements, dermal fillers reign supreme—they’re a versatile way to add volume, smooth out wrinkles, and augment contours of the face. However, there’s a wide variety of fillers available and many of them overlap in terms of how they’re used and what results they can provide. We’ve put together a simple guide for those curious about trying fillers for the first time.

JUVÉDERM® Collection of Dermal Fillers

JUVÉDERM® is probably the most widely recognizable filler brand. They have a whole line of dermal fillers that can essentially treat a patient’s entire face below the brow line (As a general rule of thumb, brows and between the eyes are generally the domain of other injectables like BOTOX® or Dysport).

Comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance naturally found in the body, JUVÉDERM® fillers are renowned for their effectiveness, safety, and versatility. Here are some features of the JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers:

Versatility

The Juvederm line encompasses multiple formulations designed to target specific areas of the face, including lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Whether you’re aiming for subtle lip augmentation or volumizing hollow cheeks, there’s a Juvederm product suited to your needs. Explore them all here.

Smooth, Natural Results:

Thanks to its smooth gel consistency, Juvederm flawlessly plumps the skin, yielding natural-looking results that enhance facial contours without appearing overly exaggerated. If you’re looking for subtle and natural results, JUVÉDERM® is tough to beat!

Long-Lasting Results

While individual results can sometimes vary depending on a patient’s metabolism, Juvederm dermal filler results last between 6 months to 2 years, depending on the specific JUVÉDERM® product being used.

Effective and Safe

JUVÉDERM® brand dermal fillers have a proven track record of safety and efficacy, with a low risk of side effects. However, just like with any dermal filler or cosmetic treatment involving needles, there can be temporary side effects like swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site.

Sculptra Dermal Fillers

Unlike hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM®, Sculptra relies on a different active ingredient called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production in the skin. This sets Sculptra apart from dermal filler brands like JUVÉDERM®, and makes it a choice option for individuals seeking gradual, natural-looking results. Here’s what you need to know about Sculptra:

Stimulates Natural Collagen Production

Sculptra works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, gradually restoring volume and improving skin texture over time. While results may take several weeks to show, the result is often longer-lasting and more subtle compared to traditional fillers.

Wide Range of Potential Treatment Areas

Sculptra is commonly used to address age-related loss of facial volume, especially around the temples, in the cheeks, and along the jawline. It’s also effective in minimizing the appearance of deep wrinkles and folds.

Provides Gradual Results

Sculptra requires multiple treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results, unlike more immediate fillers that provide quicker results. While Sculptra involves a longer treatment timeline, many patients desire more gradual and natural-looking results.

Long-lasting Results

While results are somewhat less drastic than HA fillers, Scuptra’s results can last up to two years or more with careful maintenance, making it a very cost-effective option.

Bellafill

Bellafill is what is known as a semi-permanent dermal filler and is designed to offer lasting results for reducing facial wrinkles and acne scars. Bellafill provides immediate volume while also stimulating collagen production in the skin. Here are the notable features of Bellafill:

Impressive Longevity:

One of the primary selling points of Bellafill is its exceptional longevity. While other fillers may require regular touch-up sessions, Bellafill’s effects can last for up to five years or more.

Creates Natural Collagen Production

Similar to Sculptra, Bellafill contains microspheres of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) suspended in a collagen gel. These PMMA microspheres provide immediate volume and stimulate the production of new collagen, providing long-lasting results.

FDA-Approved for Acne Scars

Bellafill is the only dermal filler approved by the FDA for the correction of acne scars, further attesting to its safety and efficacy as a dermal filler injactable.

Comprehensive Correction

Bellafill is particularly well-suited for treating deep facial wrinkles as well as pits and acne scars. Its semi-permanent nature makes it a great option for individuals seeking a more permanent solution.

Skinvive™

SKINVIVE™ is a relatively new brand in the dermal filler market. While not a dermal filler This filler is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a biocompatible substance that has been safely used in medical applications for decades. Here’s what you need to know about SKINVIVE™:

Collagen Stimulation

Similar to Sculptra and Bellafill, SKINVIVE™ stimulates collagen production in the skin, leading to improved volume and texture. This provides natural-looking results that evolve gradually over time.

Immediate, Noticeable Results

While SKINVIVE™ promotes collagen production that provide gradual and sustained improvement, it also offers immediate volume after injection, allowing patients to enjoy some quick results while the collagen-building process continues.

Versatility

SKINVIVE™ is able to address a wide range of concerns including facial wrinkles, folds, and loss of volume. It can be used to enhance cheekbones, restore youthful contours, and even address age-related volume loss in the hands, among other things.

Long-lasting Results

SKINVIVE™ provides results that typically last for up to 12-18 months, depending on a patient’s metabolism and lifestyle. Maintenance treatments can help prolong its effects over time.

JUVÉDERM® is popular for its natural-looking results, and wide range of products that can treat specific concerns. Sculptra and Bellafill offer more of the collagen-stimulating properties that are gradual and stable.
