Anti-aging and aesthetic treatments have been around in one form or another for centuries. As technology progressed, more aesthetic treatments became available, and the results have drastically improved along with technology. After all, it’s no secret that the quest to look our best is very much alive and thriving today!

One type of anti-aging treatment that has made leaps and bounds in recent years are injectable face fillers or dermal fillers. There is a wide array of facial fillers that can be used to rejuvenate the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. When considering what type of facial filler to get, it’s important to know how the different types of fillers work. This week, let’s go over two popular types of dermal fillers.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

These types of injectable face fillers contain hyaluronic acid, as the name suggests. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the body that helps give the skin volume. As we age the amount of natural hyaluronic acid in our skin diminishes, which is why this type of dermal filler works so well! It promotes collagen production, giving the skin a more youthful look. It also diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Certain types of hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to plump the lips, too! Some of the most popular hyaluronic acid face fillers include Restylane and Juvéderm. We carry both these products and variations of them here at Fountain of You, Melbourne’s premier anti-aging and aesthetic med spa.

Synthetic Fillers

While hyaluronic acid fillers use substances found naturally in the body, synthetic dermal fillers do not. They are created from man-made substances and work similarly to other types of fillers. They add volume and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Synthetic fillers usually last longer than hyaluronic acid fillers, which is a reason some people opt for these dermal fillers. It’s important to go to a skilled doctor or esthetician for any treatment, but if you’re considering synthetic face fillers, it’s extra important to do your research about where to go. After all, the effects will last for a while, so you need someone experienced and great at what they do! Some of the most popular synthetic fillers are Radiesse and Sculptra, which we offer at Fountain of You.
