There are a variety of fillers in our day that are aimed at safely and correctly addressing volume loss and wrinkles over the entire face.  In the past, Bovine collagen was the only available injectable.

Thanks to advances in our understanding of skin, risky Bovine injectables have largely been replaced with safer, synthetic compounds. These compounds have a variable life span and indication. Once injected, the fillers cause the area to plump up immediately (except in the case of Sculptura), thereby reducing the appearance of facial static lines, dark circles under the eyes, and lost volume in the cheeks and lips.  They can also be used to plump up the back of your hands for rejuvenation. The use of a synthesized form of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), an agent usually produced by the skin, means that some of the most common injectables, such as Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, and Juvederm Voluma XC are among the most widely used and safest fillers for face, lips and hands. These fillers replace the HA that, over time, has been lost during the aging process.

1Which Filler is good for me?
If you never been injected, start with a safe FDA approved filler that contains Lidocaine such as Juvederm Ultra XC is a great HA based filler for Lip or cheek augmentation, smile lines, under the eyes and hands. Juvederm Voluma XC is a great long lasting filler for the mid face specially cheeks and smile lines. If you are not sure whether you would like the final outcome or not, try Prevelle, which lasts about 3-6 months, Once you have received multiple injections and you are happy with the results, you may switch to radiesse for the smile lines. Radiesse should not be injected to the lips, since it may increase chance of granuloma formation, it is a perfect filler for cheek augmentation.
2Is the injection painful?
Injection of fillers, if done properly, is usually not painful. Some fillers such as Prevelle, Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volulma XC contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic for pain relief during the injection. Lip augmentation is the only exception where a nerve block can significantly decrease the amount of pain. Dr. Ghohestani recommends Juvederm XC products like Juvederm Voluma XC, if you are sensitive to pain.
3Which filler is good for hand rejuvenation?
Radiesse and Voluma are very good options for hand rejuvenation. The injector should be very careful as it may cause significant damage to the hands. The fillers, if the injection is done properly, may last for many years.
