Dermal Filler Options

by | May 24, 2017 | Health

Dermal fillers are used to treat wrinkles and fine lines and plump areas of the face.  They help prevent the signs of aging in addition to revitalizing the skin, maintaining a useful appearance. Following are some examples of dermal fillers that are offered by skin care professionals.


Restylane is a gel that contains hyaluronic acid. It is injected into the fine lines and creases on your face. The acid is a natural element, so the results are noticeable but subtle. Results are expected to last up to nine months. Allergic reactions are rare, but you should have a medical consultation before any treatment to assure proper administration.

Restylane in Chicago and surrounding areas is available in medical facilities for those 21 or older.


Juvederm also treats facial wrinkles and fine lines by the use of hyaluronic acid. In addition, it can add volume to thin lips and lift and fill the skin. The treatment lasts approximately six to twelve months and is a safe filler option. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm is higher in concentration than Restylane and many doctors believe that the results are smoother than what Restylane offers.

Juvederm is injected into the skin, resulting in a smooth and even result.

Perlane/Juvederm Lyft

Perlane is a filler that is also injected into the skin and lips. Now known as Juvederm Lyft, it can change the shape of the cheeks and chin as well as filling in wrinkles and fine lines. Using hyaluronic acid as well, this option can fill in more severe wrinkles and lines. It is the only filler option that can provide a cheek lift and lifting of sagging facial skin.

The results are smooth and natural, and last longer–up to 12-18 months. This is a great option for an effective anti-aging corrector.

Restylane in Chicago is available in many plastic surgery facilities. Contact The Michael Horn Center for Cosmetic Surgery online at
