What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are easily becoming one of the most widely offered services for facial augmentation across the United States and abroad. They have introduced relatively safe, minimally invasive facial augmentation and rejuvenation that can be performed in an office setting at the time of consultation. New products are hitting the market at an all-time high.
What Filler is Right For Me?
The large variety of fillers is a welcome addition to the surgeon’s repertoire, however from a patient standpoint can be largely confusing. From Juvederm®, Restylane® or Radiesse® there is a significant variation from filler to filler. What is important to understand is that different fillers are better in certain situations. For instance, a softer, more pliable filler is desirable for lip augmentation, whereas a patient with heavy cheeks and deep nasolabial folds needs a firmer filler that is able to provide more lift.
St. Louis Facial Plastic Surgery offers a wide variety of dermal fillers and we target the approach based on patient desires and input.
