Which Filler Should I Get Where? Dr. Garazo Explains the Best Fillers for Each Part of the Face

Woman Considers Different Brands of Fillers for Different Parts of Face

According to the Aesthetic Society’s 2019 report, hyaluronic acid-based fillers were the second most popular nonsurgical procedure that year, with close to 750,000 treatments performed across the nation. You’ve probably heard about the benefits of these wrinkle treatments, like their ability to get smooth, natural-feeling results and improve the structure of your skin.

But you may not know the differences among the variety of hyaluronic acid-based fillers available, each of which is specifically formulated for certain skin areas. Today, we’re sharing the what, how, and why of the dermal fillers that Frederick plastic surgeon Dr. Garazo uses on each part of the face and neck to get beautiful results for his Maryland patients.

Cheeks: Add contour and curve for lifted, youthful expressions

Filler of choice: Juvéderm® VOLUMA™ XC

How this filler contours this area: The thick formula of Juvéderm Voluma can create a more structured-looking cheekbone, as well as add plumpness to your skin for a more youthful contour in the mid-face.

Temples: Subtly correct this tell-tale sign of aging

Filler of choice: Juvéderm® VOLUMA™ XC

How this filler contours this area: Thinning skin in the temples, much like the hands, shows our age faster than other areas—and, like the hands, should not be neglected. Filler in this area can restore youthful volume and redirect attention to your eyes.

Brows: Catch the light just right with a subtle lift

Filler of choice: Restylane® Lyft™

How this filler contours this area: While BOTOX® is our go-to for injectable brow lifts, certain cases of mild skin laxity in the brow area respond well to filler. In the brow, filler plumps and offers a subtle lift that helps to smooth wrinkles. We like Lyft’s cohesive, gravity-defying formula in the brows.

Smile lines: Smooth the mid-face

Filler of choice: Juvéderm® VOLLURE™ XC

How this filler contours this area: Vollure fills in the wrinkles in the nasolabial folds (or smile lines) with a perfect balance of flexibility and smoothing cohesiveness. This is the ideal formula for an area that moves constantly as you talk and smile.

Lips: Volumize, smooth vertical lines, and improve symmetry for kissable (and visible) lips

Filler of choice: Juvéderm® VOLBELLA™ XC

How this filler contours this area: Not only can we use Volbella to achieve natural-looking volume in the lips, it smoothes vertical lip lines and can be used to treat perioral lines, or those wrinkles that form around the lips. Volbella is a versatile formula for personalizing results for each lip augmentation patient.

Chin: Balance proportions and add definition to your profile

Filler of choice: Juvéderm® VOLUMA™ XC

How this filler contours this area: Adding definition to your chin with Voluma can create a balanced appearance for patients with a “weak” chin. Many patients are surprised to see how much more youthful they look after chin filler; others find their face seems elongated and their profile more defined. Artfully placed injections can also create the illusion of a slimmer chin, as well as fill in lines or wrinkles in this area.

Jawline: Smooth your jaw into a sweeping, bold line

Filler of choice: Juvéderm® VOLUMA™ XC

How this filler contours this area: The highly cohesive formula of Voluma can be applied along the bony jawline area, mimicking the appearance of bone and strengthening the natural visual contour. (To take your treatment further, ask about Kybella® for the double chin and BOTOX® for face slimming.)

Neck: Soften and smooth for a confident presentation

Filler of choice: Juvéderm® VOLLURE™ XC

How this filler contours this area: While vertical neck bands typically require a different treatment, on the right patient, horizontal wrinkles in the neck can be effectively softened with filler. With precise injection technique, Vollure works equally well in the neck lines as in the smile lines.
