Injectable Dermal Fillers: Which One Is Best for Facial Contouring?

Schedule A Consultation

Facial contouring, once a cosmetic procedure dominated by plastic surgery, has been revolutionized by the emergence of injectable fillers. These non-invasive options offer a versatile and dynamic approach to sculpting and enhancing facial features, allowing individuals to achieve a more youthful and vibrant appearance without any significant downtime. In this informative guide, we’ll explore the world of injectable fillers, focusing on a notable option:  Restylane®.

Restylane® for Versatile Facial Contouring

Restylane® is a versatile family of fillers that encompasses various formulations, each designed to address specific areas of the face.

 Restylane® fillers are formulated with hyaluronic acid, offering natural-looking and customizable results. The Restylane® family includes several options for facial contouring, wrinkle reduction, and lip enhancement.

  • Restylane® Lyft for Cheek Augmentation

Restylane® Lyft is designed for cheek augmentation and midface enhancement. It adds volume to the cheeks, addressing age-related volume loss and creating a more lifted and youthful appearance.

  • Restylane® for Under-Eye Bags and Hollows

Restylane® also targets sunken, hollow eyes and under-eye bags for a less tired, more alert, and engaged appearance.

  • Restylane® Silk for Lip Enhancement

Restylane® Silk is specifically formulated for lip enhancement and addressing fine lines around the mouth. It provides subtle volume and definition for a more youthful and balanced smile.

  • Restylane® Defyne and Refyne for Smile Lines

Restylane® Defyne and Refyne are ideal for softening and smoothing smile lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). These formulations maintain flexibility, allowing for natural facial expressions.

How to Choose the Right Facial Filler for You

Selecting the most suitable injectable involves considering your unique goals, the areas you want to target, and how long you want your results to last. The following three aspects of cosmetic injectables are worth remembering:

  1. Consultation with a skilled injector: A crucial step in the facial contouring journey is a consultation with a well-trained, skilled, and experienced aesthetic provider. A qualified professional will assess your facial anatomy, discuss your goals, and recommend the most appropriate cosmetic fillers or combination of injectables.
  2. Comprehensive treatment: In many cases, a combination of fillers may be recommended to achieve comprehensive non-surgical facial rejuvenation, sometimes called a liquid facelift. Restylane® can also plump your lips and make the area under your eyes look younger-looking and rested while treating wrinkles.
  3. Achieving long-lasting results: The longevity of your results may vary. However, most individuals seeking a longer-lasting solution may lean towards options like Restylane® Lyft to enhance their cheeks, while those looking for a more temporary enhancement or non-surgical lip augmentation may opt for Restylane®.

Facial Fillers – Safety and Aftercare

Injectable fillers are generally safe when administered by qualified professionals. To ensure optimal results and reduce the risk of rare complications, protect treated areas from the sun and follow all aftercare instructions.
