How to Choose Which Dermal Filler Is Best for You

Wrinkles and fine lines are inevitable, but dermal fillers can help to erase these common signs of aging and restore your youthful appearance. Of course, with so many dermal fillers on the market today, you may not know which is right for your unique needs. Ultimately, it starts with you doing your homework and choosing an experienced and talented injector. Check your providers credentials and ensure they are a Medical Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant or a Registered Nurse. There are several injectors in the Tucson area with no credentials at all! This is your face and when performed properly, dermal filler injections can restore a beautiful and youthful appearance. When performed in the wrong hands, the risks of unsatisfactory results are significantly higher as are more significant complications. An experienced injector will sit with you to discuss your goals and based on those goals, will make suggestions for optimal results.

Consider Your Problem Areas

Fillers are uniquely formulated to address different parts of the face with varying densities and textures. So, the intended area of treatment will be a leading consideration in your choice of filler. Once you discuss your goals with your injector, he or she will determine the best option to achieve those goals. There are many different options your injector has to work with to deliver the best results. Some fillers work better under the eyes, others work better in the lips and cheeks. Some last 1 year where others last as long as 2 years. Different types of dermal fillers are injected at different depths and are different consistencies allowing the injector to use different techniques to obtain different results.

Assess the Depth of Wrinkles and Sagging Skin

Some dermal fillers are designed to plump up features from deep within the skin to restore significant wrinkles or lost volume. Others are intended for more mild wrinkles and fine lines. In fact, you may even find various options under the same brand, such as Juvederm, to address a single type of wrinkles with varying severity.
