Biostimulatory and Regenerative Fillers Are The Future

Biostimulatory and Regenerative Fillers Are The Future

Question: I am at the age where I need to get fillers for my sunken cheeks and nasolabial lines. Most of my friends use Juvederm, Restylane and RHA but these fillers are synthetic and only last a year. Are there any natural fillers?

Answer by Dr. Anita Mandal: You are correct. While Juvederm, Restylane and RHA are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers and, HA is found throughout your body, the HA in these fillers is a synthetic HA. In fact, the newer versions of these HA fillers contain cross-linking technologies that make them even more unlike the natural HA in your body.
 
The future of injectable fillers lies with biostimulatory and regenerative sources. This group of fillers has been developed with the idea “like on like” tissues. These “like on like” fillers work by allowing your body’s own natural tissues to restore lost facial volume. 
 
Bellafill - the 5-year filler - acts as a biostimulator and long-term results are due to Bellafill‘s stimulation of your own body’s natural collagen. For this reason, Bellafill can also look more natural than HA fillers. Since Bellafill continuously stimulates collagen for years, the results can last up to 5 years and, in some cases, even longer. Bellafill is most popular for hollow temples or cheeks, deep nasolabial smile lines, marionette or puppet lines and sagging mouth corners.
 
Renuva is a regenerative filler and works by stimulating the production of your body’s own fat cells. It is injected into areas where the face and body have existing fat which was lost over time. Popular treatment areas are hollow temples or cheeks, deep nasolabial smile lines, marionette or puppet lines, and sagging mouth corners. The results from Renuva are permanent. Renuva is highly safe and also very natural-looking.
 
Because we are moving in a direction of less synthetic filler products, more natural results, higher safety expectations, and the use of “like on like” tissues, biostimulatory and regenerative fillers with their long-term and natural results are rapidly coming to the forefront of aesthetic medicine and surgery.
