Understanding the Different Types of Fillers

If you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fillers are a good option for adding volume to your face and helping your skin appear younger. But with several injectable treatments on the market, deciding which one to choose can be a challenge.

Matthew J. Lynch, MD, and the rest of our team in East Windsor, New Jersey, provide several types of cosmetic injectable fillers. Although fillers aren’t a permanent solution, your treatments can last for months. 

If you’re physically healthy and showing unwanted signs of aging, fillers can be a good option.

Our team provides three types of fillers:

Restylane® cosmetic injectable filler

If you have deep lines or creases around your eyes, mouth, or lips, or if you have acne scars, Restylane may work best for you. 

The amount of time your treatment lasts varies depending on the area treated. For example, when filling in laugh lines, your filler can last as long as 18 months. However, if you’re using Restylane for lip enhancement, it may last for six months.

We can talk to you about your options with Restylane and see if it’s a fit for your needs.

Juvéderm® cosmetic injectable filler

Juvéderm uses hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body, to smooth out moderate to severe lines or folds in your face. It can also plump up thin lips, fill in lines above your upper lip, reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your forehead, and help diminish scars. 

Juvéderm lasts 6-12 months, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the product.

Sculptra® cosmetic injectable filler

Sculptra helps replace collagen you’ve lost. As your skin slowly absorbs the filler, your facial volume comes back. Sculptra stimulates collagen growth, making it different from other fillers. 

It takes time for your collagen to rebuild, which is why we encourage a series of treatments. The number depends on your skin condition and the desired outcome. Once we evaluate your skin, we can determine how many injections you need and how often you should receive them.

With Sculptra, your results can last for two years or longer.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Lynch and our team examine your face closely, talk with you about your concerns and goals, and work with you to pick a filler that gives you the best result.
