Nowadays, fillers are improving not only the lips and cheeks. This year, the FDA accepted the use of Restylane Lyft for the backs of the hands, making it the main HA dermal filler (Radiesse too is FDA-accepted for the hands) to get permission for a zone besides the face. Also, unapproved administration on regions like the earlobes, nose, chin, knees, and even the derriere confirm that fillers are some of the most adequate means for momentary rejuvenation. There are reliable alternatives luming in the future - fillers are being develloped now that use HA combined with silk-extracted proteins or hydrogels.
According to Short Hills, NJ facial plastic surgeon Alexander Ovchinsky, MD.
“Hyaluronic acid hydrogels are obtained by a special cross-linking process of HA molecules. Due to an innovative preparation method, they do not contain any detectable residual cross-linking agent and are easier to inject. These new hydrogels show good stability against enzymatic degradation, which should translate into increased longevity.”
But what's to come has also arrived now—the FDA has accepted two new fillers doctors can include to their arsenal.
“A group of HA fillers called Teosyal and Teosyal RHA were just approved,” says Dallas dermatologist Elizabeth Bahar Houshmand, MD. “Teosyal can plump lips and address wrinkles, under-eye hollows and scars; while Teosyal RHA is best for the most mobile areas of the face like the cheeks, nasolabial folds and forehead.”
Also endorsed was HA filler Revanesse Versa.
“Other HA fillers absorb water after they are injected and can change a bit in the first few weeks, but with Revanesse, what you see at the time of injection is what you get,”
dermatologist David Rayhan, MD from Huntington Beah, CA said. Dr. Houshmand says the difference is it utilizes certain cross-linking technology, according to the company, that enables the HA particles to remain more compacted so they are smoother and rounder.
"This outcomes in fundamentally less swelling, yet contemplates are required for legitimate correlation with help this case."
There's actually no alternative for the restoring potential of dermal fillers, yet a number of filler-desiring people presently resort to over-the-counter topicals first. And keeping in mind that there's no cream or serum that can do what fillers can do, topicals that contain hyaluronic acid can draw in water to the skin and cause a brief "bulging" effect that slowly grow into fine wrinkles caused by minute tissue swelling. But don't count on the outcome to be simular to the instantaneous rejuvenating fillers injections might produce.
“If on a scale from 1 to 10, fillers are 10, the best results you can achieve from using OTC topicals is a 2 on the same scale,"
said dermatologist Dr. Matthew Elias, Fort Lauderdale,FL. Even though the best creams won't overcome the longing for a filler fix, combining them every day to your maintenance cycle can only boost the skin's aura.
“Good moisturization can ‘plump’ to decrease, but not resolve, the appearance of fine lines,” Ashburn, VA dermatologist Stephanie Daniel, MD continues. “Look for products with hyaluronic acid, retinoids and antioxidants, as these will work best over time.”
