It is hardly an exaggeration that skin-smoothing treatments are, by far, the most popular procedure being performed in the beauty industry. Our skin is the largest organ of the body and is the one immediately exposed to the outside world, being affected by virtually any adverse external factor in our surrounding area. So, if you want smooth and soft skin, you’ve to inevitably address any such outside influences to the dermis and address any negative effects they might have.

What is more important, is that everybody ages. Unfortunately, our bodies deteriorate with the natural aging process, and this, of course, includes our skin, as well. Loss of elasticity, worse hydration, roughness and wrinkles, and skin line formation – these are only some of the investable age-related problems our upper and lower dermis are bound to face. From facial rejuvenation with fillers and mesotherapy to body skin treatment with lotions or, even, beauty machines – there are many procedures and methods to slow down or temporarily stop the perceived effects that aging has on the skin.

Skin-Smoothing Dermal Fillers: Types, Benefits & Side Effects

One of the more effective methods for dealing with wrinkles and achieving overall smoothness is using dermal fillers (as the product catalog of My Lip Filler indicates). These, normally, come in the form of gel which is applied at various depths of the dermis to fill any visible depressions and provide a smoothed-out look of the surface dermal layer. Depending on their properties, wrinkle fillers can be (roughly) divided based on the following criteria:

    • Primary ingredient – fillers have been a tool of the beauty industry for decades are there are many variations. Polynucleotides are a popular base for products that boost the overall skin condition, while Poly-L-Lactic acid, Calcium, and Polycaprolactone are all standard bases for semi-permanent fillers, which are mostly used for contour, and also have applications for severe skin fold treatment. However, the most popular type is the Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, for both facial smoothing and feature augmentation, due to their high versatility.
    • Density – the different parts of the face will, inevitably, be treated with different solutions. Delicate areas such as the skin at the corner or below the eyes, will require a very soft HA solution. In contrast, facial volume restoration in areas like the cheeks will necessitate the stability that a dense filler will provide. At the same time, mid-face fillers are somewhere in between – not too soft, but not too thick, either.
  • Type – depending on their composition, ingredients, and, most importantly, intended usage, fillers can be separated into four main categories – skin boosters, surface wrinkle fillers, deep fold and lip fillers, and thick contouring fillers. Boosters are intended to rapidly improve the overall condition of the skin, in a limited area where they are applied. Soft fillers are used to remove problems like Crow’s feet, where the skin depression is fairly shallow. They are the most popular type of skin-smoothing dermal fillers. Medium-thickness fillers are popular for lip enhancement but also work well for more pronounced depressions like nasolabial folds. Finally, the dense gel is used to shape facial features like the chin and cheekbones, but it can also be effective in smoothing out the most severe skin folds, which are typical or advanced age.

Collection of Dermal Fillers

As far as choosing the best filler for skin smoothing, the selection is, mildly put – overwhelming. We at My Lip Filler will point your attention towards several brands which are worth mentioning:

  • Korean fillersRevolax is the most popular, but Dermalax and Rejeunesse, are also premium options worth considering. Don’t miss out on Neuramis if you prefer a softer per-class HA gel.
  • Korean fillers (double pack) – best value for the money can be found with Bonetta Filler or Elasty. European customers will probably be interested in Glowing Fill, as well.
  • Western fillers Juvederm is, essentially the gold standard, but both Stylage and Restylane are worthy competitors. Teosyal has probably the most extensive product line of all.

But there is more…

From the daily routine with anti-wrinkle cream and hydrating lotion to mesotherapy with complex meso cocktails with nutrients – all of them are essential for the overall well-being of the skin, as well as for the reduction of visible wrinkles and smoothing out of skin lines.

Cosmetologist’s Insights on Skin-Smoothing Dermal Fillers

Skin-smoothing dermal fillers offer a rejuvenating solution to various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of skin elasticity. As a cosmetologist, I advise anyone considering this treatment to first understand the variety of fillers available and how they can be tailored to meet your specific skin rejuvenation needs. Hyaluronic acid fillers are particularly popular for their hydrating properties and ability to create a smooth, supple skin texture, but other types, such as calcium hydroxylapatite and poly-L-lactic acid, also provide excellent skin-smoothing benefits with added volume and collagen stimulation.

Selecting the right filler involves more than just understanding the product; it’s about knowing how it interacts with your skin’s unique structure and aging process. This is why a consultation with a skilled practitioner is crucial. They can assess your skin’s condition, discuss your aesthetic goals, and recommend the most suitable filler type, ensuring a customized approach that addresses your concerns effectively.

In addition, the technique used during the procedure plays an important role in achieving a natural, smooth result. Look for a practitioner with a proven track record of success in skin-smoothing treatments, as their expertise will ensure the filler is evenly distributed, blending seamlessly with your skin’s natural texture.

Post-treatment care is also key to maximizing the longevity of your results. Following your practitioner’s advice on skincare, sun protection, and any follow-up treatments will help maintain the filler’s effect and keep your skin looking its best.

Ultimately, the goal of skin-smoothing dermal fillers is to enhance your skin’s natural beauty, providing a refreshed and youthful appearance. With careful consideration of the type of filler and the expertise of your practitioner, you can achieve smooth, radiant skin that reflects your inner vitality.
