Types of Facial Fillers for Wrinkle Reduction
Brand name: Radiesse
Calcium hydroxylapatite is a naturally occurring mineral compound in the human body. This dermal filler is used for:
- Nasolabial folds, frown lines, and marionette lines among other moderate to severe creases
- Enhancing facial contours and fullness of the cheeks
- Improving in facial areas with atrophy
Calcium hydroxylapatite used in Radiesse is biosynthetically produced. This means that no animal products are used. This reduces the risk of having an allergic reaction. You won’t require skin testing as well. This dermal filler is known for producing natural results. It doesn’t cause any lumps or migrate. Side effects and complications are rare as well. The dermal filler was earlier used in dentistry with a long safety record.

Hyaluronic acid injectables can be used for improving the contour of the skin and reducing depressions because of injury, scars and lines. You can use hyaluronic acid-based fillers for improving:
- Cheek depressions
- Acne scars
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Deep smile lines or nasolabial furrows
- Redefining lip border

Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the human body. There are high concentrations of this substance in soft connective tissues and the fluid that surrounds the eyes. HA is also present in skin tissue and joint and cartilage fluids.
This compound is extracted and reformulated to mimic the natural substance. It has become one of the more popular active ingredients in dermal fillers because of its safety and efficacy. Hyaluronic acid is also injected in the aching joints of patients suffering from arthritis. It provides extra cushioning and relieves pain.
Brand name: Sculptra
Polylactic acid is a type of synthetic dermal filler. It is injected in the face and causes the body to produce collagen. This type of wrinkle reducing dermal filler injectable is usually known as a stimulator. Polylactic acid dermal fillers are known to work particularly well when used in the lower half of the face. It can be used for:
- Filling the lines caused by laughing
- Plumping thin lips
- Treating nasolabial folds
Polylactic acid based dermal fillers are not the same as other wrinkle reducing fillers. They don’t provide immediate results. Instead, they work to produce collagen in the body. Results usually appear gradually over a period of next few weeks or months depending on individual anatomy.
You would probably require three monthly treatments for achieving desired results. There is a re-stimulation of collagen production with each medical spa injectable treatment with Sculptra Aesthetic. Motykie Med Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for dermal fillers to soften facial creases and wrinkles.
