How to Choose Your Ideal Dermal Filler

Nov 16, 2023
Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic treatment that can plump up skin and erase wrinkles. But, how can you tell which dermal filler is right for you? Read on to learn about your options.

Dermal fillers are one of the most popular treatments for rejuvenating skin and erasing wrinkles — and it’s easy to see why. Dermal fillers are versatile, minimally invasive, and offer impressive results with little to no downtime.

If you’re curious about dermal fillers, you’re not alone. In 2022, aestheticians performed more than 5 million filler procedures in the United States alone.

Our team at Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center in Teaneck, New Jersey, offers a range of dermal fillers, and we’re ready to help you choose the ideal dermal filler for your aesthetic goals.

Dermal fillers: Know your options

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that can add volume, smooth wrinkles, and improve the overall appearance of your skin. Depending on the filler, they can help replenish lost volume, stimulate collagen production, and more to give you a youthful and refreshed look.

At Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center, we specialize in Juvéderm® XC, Restylane®, and Radiesse®. Here’s what you need to know about these popular options.

Juvéderm® XC and Restylane®

Both Juvéderm XC and Restylane are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that’s found in your skin, and it’s responsible for maintaining hydration and volume.

When you get HA injections, the substance fills in lost volume to make your skin smoother. We use Juvéderm and Restylane to treat areas across the face, including the lips, cheeks, and nasolabial folds.

Hyaluronic acid fillers deliver results that are immediately noticeable. Depending on the type of HA filler you get, you can expect your results to last 6-12 months.


Radiesse is a calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) filler. CaHA adds volume under the surface of your skin with the added benefit of collagen stimulation.

Radiesse contains CaHA microspheres that boost collagen growth in your skin, providing long-term benefits. This makes it ideal for deeper wrinkles and volume restoration in areas like the cheeks and jawline.

Like HA fillers, Radiesse provides immediate results. You can expect to notice continued improvement over time. In fact, results can last up to two years or more.

Which filler is right for you?

Juvéderm XC, Restylane, and Radiesse all offer unique benefits, and our team is here to help you develop a customized aesthetic treatment plan. We start with a comprehensive skin assessment, where we examine your facial anatomy and discuss your aesthetic goals.

If you're primarily concerned with fine lines and moderate wrinkles, hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvéderm® XC and Restylane®, could be right for you. If you want to restore lost volume in your cheeks or other areas with deeper wrinkles, Radiesse® may be a better option due to its collagen-stimulating properties.

All of our dermal filler options provide immediate results, but some can last longer than others. If you prefer less frequent touch-ups, Radiesse® offers longer-lasting results compared to HA fillers.
