Inside The Top 5 Most Popular Facial Fillers

No matter where you turn, aging A-listers everywhere all seem to have one thing in common — it appears that they found the fountain of youth! Seriously, although celebrities are getting older just like the rest of us, none of them are looking like it!

So, what’s their secret? Injectables. Yup, don’t let our favorite stars fool you — they did not wake up like this! But, just what are they getting pumped and plumped with that has left them looking so perfect? The answer lies within any of one the top five injectables that we’re breaking down for you below:

  1. DYSPORT

As our faces age, we start to see the earliest signs of aging (wrinkles, deep lines, etc.) which Dysport can help reduce. Dysport works as a neuromuscular receptor blocker that stops the release of neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters signal the activation of muscle at the Dypsort injection area. In other words, tiny amounts of Dysport can be injected into wrinkled areas to relax the surrounding muscles. When this happens, Dysport treatment has the effect of smoothing the skin so that the wrinkles disappear.

  1. JUVÉDERM XC

Juvéderm XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler, specifically formulated to add volume to the skin around the mouth and nose that has been lost due to the natural aging process. This injectable gel restores a youthful contour to the face, plumping up the area and softening lines, facial wrinkles and folds. The main component in Juvéderm XC is hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally within the human body, which hydrates and supports skin. Over time, the levels of hyaluronic acid produced by the body begin to decline, leading to changes in facial definition. Juvéderm XC naturally integrates into the skin, restoring levels of hyaluronic acid and stimulating the growth of firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

  1. restylane

As we age and our faces lose volume, some of us begin to look for ways to regain more definition in our cheeks without surgery. Restylane is a non-surgical, FDA-approved, filler used to instantly smooth away moderate to severe wrinkles like smile lines (the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth) as well as plump the lips and restore lost volume for a fresher, more youthful appearance.

  1. BELLAFILL

Bellafill is the only dermal filler approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years.

With distinctive properties, Bellafill works to not only fill the scarred skin, but to restore it. The Bellafill formulated solution works in two ways: the collagen provides immediate volume below atrophic acne scars to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin, and the PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports endogenous collagen production. Win-win.

  1. BOTOX

The number one most popular injectable is none other than Botox, a non-surgical facial rejuvenation method that helps eliminate the appearance of deep wrinkles by muscle relaxation. Injectable patients everywhere love Botox as it has proven time and time again to be the most effective, providing natural results when treating the eye and chin area, as well as the forehead.
