How to Choose the Right Filler for Your Anti-Aging Goals

Frustrated by wrinkles and other signs of aging in your facial skin? Your face is one of the first places targeted by signs of aging, showing damage from time, sun exposure, and even emotional expressiveness. Your face is also the best place to start with anti-aging cosmetic treatments like fillers.

Facial fillers, including products based on collagen, hyaluronic acid, and Botox®, provide a safe and effective way to meet your anti-aging goals and restore the youthful appearance of your face. Fillers work to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, smoothing your facial surface. Fillers can be temporary to long-lasting, and are typically administered through an injection. 

Available options

If you're thinking about fillers, you have a lot of choices available! Each different type of facial fillers is uniquely designed with one or more particular purpose(s) in mind. You'll want to make sure to choose the right option for your facial needs. At Alabama Vein & Restoration Medspa, we can consult with you on your best treatment options. 

Xeomin

Xeomin®, an FDA-approved injection, works to reduce moderate to severe frown lines between your eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines. The injection contains botulinum toxin type A, blocking the signal from your nerves to your forehead muscles and causing your face to relax. 

Xeomin doesn't contain any additives, so you're less likely to become resistant to the product. Results become apparent as early as 3-4 days after injection, and typically last for up to three months. Xeomin can also be combined with dermal fillers. 

Belotero

The Belotero® range of dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, a natural component of your skin. As you age, your level of hyaluronic acid tends to decrease. Adding hyaluronic acid back into your skin reverses visible signs of aging. 

Belotero rehydrates your skin, restoring facial fullness and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Results appear in a few days, and, depending on the specific product, can last from 9-18 months.

Juvederm

Alabama Vein & Restoration Medspa offers Juvéderm® Voluma, an injectable hyaluronic volumiser to re-contour the mid-sections of your face, restoring youthful fullness to your cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. Results are immediate, and can last for up to 18 months. The injectable gel has a smooth consistency for easier administration and natural look and feel. 

We also offer Juvederm Voluma XC injectable gel for cheek augmentation, Juvederm Ultra XC for lip augmentation, Juvederm Ultra Plus to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, Juvederm Volbella XC to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area, and Juvederm Vollure XC to soften moderate to severe parentheses wrinkles and lines around your mouth and nose. 

Botox

Botox treatment injectables made from botulinum toxin are FDA-approved for cosmetic use. Botox works to paralyze the muscles in your face that cause unwanted lines and wrinkles. Micro-targeted injections leave your face looking natural and expressive, with fullness and youthfulness restored. 

Botox works best on forehead wrinkles, crow's feet around your eyes, and glabellar lines between your eyebrows, and can also work to lift your eyebrows and the corners of your mouth, and restore smooth texture to the skin of your chin. Botox treatments don't require any downtime.
