The best dermal fillers (in our opinion) for which are currently the best hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
Which brand? I’m confused!
We will only analyse dermal fillers based on hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic fillers are not permanent, they have no lasting effects, they yield the most natural results, and if necessary, can be removed and dissolved using a special enzyme.
Most doctors stick to one brand of hyaluronic dermal fillers, which is common practice because it makes sense financially. Some prefer to use brands such as Restylane, Juvéderm, or some other (i.e. Teosyal and Belotero hyaluronic fillers), then the patient is definitely in very good hands, because these brands offer a whole range of different fillers, with various densities, hyaluronic concentration, and molecule size, also years of testing and medical research.
Which filler is the best for which treatment?
Restylane Classic is a dermal filler for lip augmentation. The results yield very natural and soft lips. It contains the optimum concentration of hyaluronic acid.
Drawbacks? The results only last 6 months, and the lips are very swollen right after the procedure; however, the swelling dies off in just 24 hours.
Non-surgical face-lifting or cheek augmentation
A natural facelift for skin that has lost volume and appears relaxed. There is no need for surgery, because the butterfly facelift method, 8-point lift, or MD codes can yield very effective and natural results with non-surgical face-lifting, and requires the use of 2ml – 5ml of dermal filler.
What’s more, the effects can last for even 18 – 36 months (because this treatment uses denser fillers with larger molecules). The first such filler on the market was Restylane Sub Q, but it has proven to be too hard a filler, and so over the last 5 years my favourite filler for lifting the face, cheeks and saggy skin around the chin is definitely Juvéderm Voluma, which is a wonderful filler with large molecules which provides adequate lift through easy injection.
We think Restylane Classic achieves perfect results and with no side effects, Juvéderm, Teosyal, Belotero are also good alternatives for this treatment.
Juvéderm & Restylane are our recommended.
One of the biggest differences between Juvederm and Restylane is texture. Juvederm tends to leave a smoother texture, while Restylane is more granulated. Juvederm can sometimes last longer than Restylane as well.
