There are so many different types of cosmetic injectables on the market and they all seem to do the same thing. But which one should you choose, you ask?
Working in aesthetic and anti-aging sphere, it is important to keep stock of dermal fillers, especially as customers keep coming back for touch up treatments to maintain their previous filler results. Also, the reason to be in the business is to achieve profits whilst sourcing affordable dermal fillers and reliable suppliers.
In this article, I, Anna, the founder of a star beauty supply Anna’s Cosmetics, provide a summary of the main brands of dermal fillers and some other cosmetic injectables currently available on the marker and in my online store. I will start from my favorite one – Radiesse.
DERMAL FILLER RADIESSE
Dermal filler Radiesse is made from Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHa) – a synthetic bio-compatible material with over 20 years of use in medicine.
Primarily it targets the Nasolabial Folds. Also, Radiesse is famously used to enhance cheeks and cheekbones while restoring facial volume lost due to illness or aging. Radiesse also has been approved by the FDA to increase volume in hands, restoring density and youthful condition of their skin as opposed to aged and wrinkled appearance which exposes veins.
Filler Radiesse is a pretty straight forward dermal filler to work with considering you had previous training in cosmetic injectables. It gives great volumizing results that last up to 12 months and costs $340 for a 1 ml syringe of gel buying it from Anna’s Cosmetics online store.
Side effects such as swelling is normal and subside within a few days. Over 83% of customers are usually satisfied with the results they achieve from usage of Radiesse filler.
COSMETIC INJECTABLES TEOSYAL RHA
Manufactured by a Swiss laboratory Teoxane, the Teosyal RHA range of cosmetic injectables has been recently approved by the FDA. What makes it special is the fact that hyaluronic acid used in this range “respects” your facial expressions by supporting the skin in every move, while helping to preserve the vitality and softness of the facial features. How? The RHA cosmetic injectables were created with a patented process, which makes it possible to meet the specific requirements of mobile facial areas though preserving the natural characteristics of the hyaluronic acid molecules making it almost identical to the natural hyaluronic acid found in the skin.
Therefore, dermal fillers Teosyal RHA resist to compression, for example, in the cheeks when we sleep. Moreover, they stretch with the movements, for example in the perioral area.
Anna’s Cosmetics stock Teosyal RHA dermal fillers ranging from $350 to $430 depending on the treatment indications and desirable results.
DERMAL FILLERS BELOTERO
The Belotero range of cosmetic injectables consists of five dermal fillers indicated for various facial zones:
- Belotero Hydro – developed for deep rehydration, restoring radiance and elasticity of the skin. The product is perfect for treating the face, hands, neck and décolletage;
- Belotero Soft – designed to treat Crows Feet and Smokers Lines;
- Belotero Balance – a perfect solution for Tear Troughs, Glabellar Lines, Nasolabial Folds, Marionette Lines, Lip Contours, Lip Volume and Oral Commissures;
- Belotero Intense – treats Nasolabial Folds, Marionette Lines, Lip Volume, Cupid’s Bow and Oral Commissures;
- Belotero Volume – developed to reconstitute and restore facial volumes in different areas such as cheeks, cheekbones, chin and temples.
Interestingly, FDA expressed their trust in Belotero and approved one of its products – Belotero Balance – for filling the Tear Troughs. Ever since then, Belotero Balance has become the most trusted dermal fillers used for treatment of under eye hollows.
What differs Belotero dermal fillers from other Hyaluronic Acid fillers is its unusual elasticity: all of them are very malleable therefore they easily adapt to facial contours.
The longevity of Belotero cosmetic injectables depends on the patient’s lifestyle. It can be anything from 6 to 12 months. The cost of dermal fillers Belotero on Anna’s Cosmetics ranges from $ 170 to $420.
DERMAL FILLER SCULPTRA
This dermal filler is designed to combat facial fat loss (lipoatrophy), particularly following a period of weight loss which causes skin to sag. Dermal filler Sculptra is indicated for correction of shallow to deep facial wrinkles and facial contour deficiency by stimulating your cells to produce their own collagen thanks to its main ingredient Poly-L-Lactic Acid. The result gives a more youthful and natural-looking appearance.
Sculptra replaces lost collagen in the middle to lower face and chin area such as:
- Nasolabial folds
- Tear throughs
- Marionette lines
- Pre-Jowl Sulcus or Pre-Jowl fold – a little known area on either side of our chin (see a picture on the right – the arrow points to Pre-Jowl Sulcus)
- Mandibular line – the jaw line that is usually more prominent and square among males.
It is also used for cheek augmentation and submalar volumizing.
During treatments with a dermal filler Scuptra, collagen growth is stimulated which allows you to gradually create a natural look that lasts up to 2 years.
Post treatments are carried out usually between 4-6 or 4-8 weeks following the initial treatment and it is recommended to always work with less gel than more than required. If a patient requires further treatment, they can revisit for a top up.
Available for $450 from Anna’s Cosmetics, it is great value considering the longevity of the results. A high level of satisfaction reported by patients at the 90% mark.
COSMETIC INJECTABLES JUVEDERM
One of the most popular and a bestseller of all times, cosmetic injectables Juvederm carry a proud reputation for being the perfect filler for creating lip and cheek volume as well as targeting wrinkles, with results lasting from 6 months to a year. Anna’s Cosmetics stock a range of Juvederm dermal fillers, ranging from $170 to $470. Juvederm cosmetic injectables proved to be the winner of customer satisfaction, reaching over 90% satisfaction.
KYBELLA (KNOWN IN EUROPE AS BELKYRA)
Lastly, we look at Kybella (Belkyra) which is not a dermal filler, but injectable treatment for dissolving fat under the chin and re-defining the jawline.
Double chin has always been considered cosmetically undesirable. Why? The answer is simple: it is a sign of aging.
Belkyra (Kybella) consists of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in human body. When injected into a targeted area, it destroys fat cell membranes, allowing the fat inside to be released and naturally eliminated from the body.
Why not buy Kybella online from Anna’s Cosmetics? It is almost impossible to obtain it any other way rather than at the doctor’s office. Here it costs $1750 per 4 x 2 ml vials and with that it makes a true investment in your future: a pretty and youthful face is the first step to your success!
