What are injectable fillers? (Juvederm or Restylane)
Injectable fillers are used tp plump lips, smooth wrinkles and folds, and fill in the under-eye hollows. They can also add volume to cheeks, reduce appearance of acne scars, and help with lip lines.
Fillers are made up of a natural ingredient called hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is already a part of our skin integrity but overtime, this helpful molecule decreases in quantity which can lead to volume loss and aging. The steady decrease of HA begins in our late 20s and steadily downward slopes from there on out. Using HA in injectable fillers is a safe and natural way to reverse and or prevent the signs aging. They give a youthful yet natural appearance.
Which brand of filler is best for me?
While our fillers are all made of hyaluronic acid (HA), there are a couple of different brands. Juvederm and Restylane are the two most superior brands of HA fillers due to their safety and efficacy. Each of them individually or combined can help give you the desired results. Our cosmetic team at Thrive can help you decide which one is best for you.
