Dermal fillers have been around for over 30 years. Similar to Botox, fillers are some of the most popular procedures at the Boston Center for Plastic Surgery, as well as around the world. Soft tissue fillers can immediately enhance one’s facial appearance creating a rejuvenated appearance. By smoothing moderate to deep lines, and restoring lost facial volume especially in the cheeks, chin, and jawline, fillers can create a facelift effect without the cost or recovery of a surgical procedure.

Fillers have been loved by patients for years, but did you know that a second generation of products are hitting the market today, allowing for even better wrinkle-reducing benefits? Cutting-edge, scientific advances have created a variety of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers that offer consistent, enhanced results that last longer than ever before.

Benefits of the New Soft Tissue Fillers:

  • Smooth fine wrinkles, moderate creases, and severe lines
  • Restore volume and contour under the eyes, cheeks, and jawline
  • Delay the need for a facelift
  • Further improve the results from other surgical or noninvasive techniques
  • Provide immediate results, that continue to improve
  • Can take up to 10 years off the appearance
  • Treatment is fast, perfect for a ‘lunchtime lift’
The New Kids on the Block: Allergan Vollure, Restylane Refyne and Defyne:

One of the newest soft tissue fillers to arrive in Boston is Vollure from Allergan. This one-of-a-kind injectable is formulated for moderate to severe facial lines, and folds as well as the lips. With a smooth, gel formula, the results are consistent, without the puffiness or hardness seen with older fillers. Made with Allergan’s Vycross technology, the benefits of Vollure can last for up to 18 months.

Two of the most anticipated fillers to hit the aesthetic market are from the trusted Restylane family of fillers. Refyne and Defyne are second-generation soft tissue fillers with unique formulations of Restylane XpresHA technology, making them well-suited to provide customizable results.  Restylane Refyne is a very flexible dermal filler, providing subtle tissue support for those needing softer enhancement. Defyne is less flexible, meaning stronger support for increasingly lax tissues. Both Restylane Refyne and Defyne can be used almost anywhere on the face, offer immediate results, and can last up to a full year.
