There are four main reasons why I believe hyaluronic acid-based injectable fillers (HA fillers) – which include Perlane, Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™, and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA™ – have continued to be such popular treatments for both men and women over the years:
1. The injectable filler treatment requires virtually no downtime. After receiving HA filler injections, most patients are able to resume their normal daily routines almost immediately.
2. As a nonsurgical treatment, HA injectable fillers are relatively inexpensive when compared to more extensive, surgical rejuvenation procedures.
3. HA injectable fillers truly do what they are advertised to do. In the right candidate, these filler treatments are very effective at restoring volume to targeted facial areas and achieving a smoother look with fewer lines and wrinkles.
4. HA injectable fillers are reversible. In the rare cases where a patient may be unsatisfied with a result, the HA filler can be ‘dissolved’ with a simple procedure.
If you are contemplating receiving dermal fillers, I recommend consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine whether or not HA injectable treatments are the best fit for your specific needs. While HA injectables can be very effective, you may be a better candidate for another injectable treatment, or even a surgical procedure. Patients seeking injectable fillers also commonly benefit from injectable neuromodulators such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, as well. A board-certified plastic surgeon will have the skill and expertise necessary to address any aesthetic rejuvenation need you may have, whether it be through non-invasive, minimally-invasive, or surgical means.
