You may experience changes in your facial appearance as you age such as volume loss, fine lines, wrinkles, and a hallowed appearance under the eyes. Luckily, there are many injectable filler options available to rejuvenate your appearance and reduce these signs of aging. You can click on each injectable listed below to view the treatment areas, or you can click the area of the face to view which injectables can address signs of aging in that specific location. This guide can be used to help you understand the various types of injectables, but a consultation is the best way to determine which injectable is right for you.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, XEOMIN®, or Jeuveau™
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, XEOMIN®, or Jeuveau™ – Treats frown lines (glabellar lines), forehead lines, and crow’s feet.
These neuromuscular-blocking injectables result in tighter, smoother skin on the forehead as well as around the eyebrows and eyes. Results may vary for each patient but generally last three to four months after treatment.
Bellafill® – Treats the midface, temples, and smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds).
This non-resorbable polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) bovine collagen filler is FDA approved for filling facial lines, and results can last up to five years.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® XC
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® XC – Treats the lips, lip lines, and smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds).
Both of these options are derived from hyaluronic acid and address concerns around the mouth. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC can add fullness to the lips and JUVÉDERM® XC treats nasolabial folds and lip lines.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC – Treats the lips and fine lines.
This injectable formulation of hyaluronic acid and a small dose of local anesthetic (lidocaine) corrects fine lines and adds fullness to the lips while simultaneously providing a numbing agent for minimizing discomfort during your injections.
RADIESSE® – Treats smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds), temples, and jowls, and volume loss on the back of your hands.
The ingredients in this injectable are not easily broken down by your body, so results can commonly last up to a year.
Restylane® and Restylane-L®
Restylane® and Restylane-L® – Treats the lips and smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds).
These hyaluronic acid-based gel formulas act like your body’s natural hyaluronic acid and add volume and fullness to the skin.
Restylane® Lyft With Lidocaine
Restylane® Lyft With Lidocaine – Treats the hands, cheeks, and smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds).
This injectable filler is made of hyaluronic acid, lidocaine, and water to treat volume loss and wrinkles in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and hands.
Restylane® Defyne and Restylane® Refyne
Restylane® Defyne and Restylane® Refyne – Treats smile lines between the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds).
The FDA-approved contents of these injectables smooth out wrinkles while allowing more natural, relaxed facial expression and movement. Restylane® Defyne is more firm, making it ideal for moderate to severe deep dermis wrinkles, while Restylane® Refyne is more flexible to treat moderate skin folds.
Sculptra® Aesthetic – Treats the midface, temples, nasolabial folds, and jowls.
This FDA-approved injectable promotes the gradual replacement of collagen to fight facial aging. Most patients see results for up to two years.
KYBELLA® – Treats the area beneath the chin (submental fullness, or a “double chin”).
This FDA-approved injectable is created to treat submental fullness by destroying fat cells using deoxycholic acid (a molecule in the body that breaks down fat and absorbs it naturally). Fat cells are demolished and unable to grow or restore after this treatment.
