Dermal fillers and stimulants vary in the areas where they're best used, in the materials they're composed of, and in the duration of their results. Trust your face to the expertise of Dr. Elliott & the other providers at Skinspirations, who have done over 10,000 dermal filler treatments. The following is a list of the dermal filler & stimulants that Dr. Elliott has chosen to provide her patients, along with a link for more information on each.
Here's also a table summarizing Dr. Elliott's opinions on the pros and cons of each.
Juvederm™ is now the most popular dermal filler in the world, providing immediate, natural looking correction of wrinkles, folds and depressions, as well as enhancement of features like lips and brows. It's the most versatile dermal filler available & can be used to restore the volume lost to aging in all areas of the face, from fine lines to cheeks.
Sculptra® Builds the Foundation
Sculptra®, which subtly & slowly stimulates the skin to thicken & lift, is an excellent choice for those who would benefit from general volume restoration.
Radiesse® is a robust dermal filler that can lift deep lines and brows, fill out cheeks and the back of the hands, can make a bumpy nose look straight. The results are immediate.
Restylane® is familiar to most people because it was the first hyaluronic acid filler used in the United States. Restylane® is made of hyaluronic acid, a clear gel-like substance that is found naturally in the body. Shallow lines, under-eye depressions and wrinkles do well with Restylane® and the results last about 6 months and up to a year under the eyes.
Bellafill® (previously known as ArteFill®) is the longest lasting injectable cosmetic filler approved by the FDA in 2006, and has been used in over 20,000 patients since then. The results feel and look natural immediately after the treatment and, unlike other fillers, look just as good several years later.
