Juvederm and Restylane

Known as hyaluronic acid fillers, Juvederm and Restylane mimic the effects of hyaluronic acid in the body.

In its natural state, hyaluronic acid is an important component of the body’s epithelial, connective, and nervous tissues. Because hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body, hyaluronic acid fillers are considered to be one of the safest dermatology fillers you can ever find. These are often the dermatology fillers of choice for individuals who are new to dermal fillers because Juvederm and Restylane are reversible. Unfortunately, they do require repeat injection after about 6 months because by then, the body would have naturally absorbed the hyaluronic acid.

Known as a hydroxyapatite filler, Radiesse provides instant results in pretty much the same way as Juvederm and Restylane. One advantage of hydroxyapatite dermatology fillers like Radiesse over hyaluronic acid fillers is that they have a significantly longer lifespan often reaching up to 12 months, twice as long as Juvederm or Restylane. However, because Radiesse is a little bit tougher or less flexible than the hyaluronic acid fillers, it is more prone to the development of bumps as well as lumps. Additionally, it is irreversible so you simply have to wait for at least a year before you can try any other dermatology filler.


Known as synthetic polymer dermatology fillers, Sculptra contains Poly-L-lactic acid microspheres which act by stimulating the production of natural collagen. In effect, they are not really dermatology fillers in the sense that they cannot provide instant results. You will have to wait for about 3 to 4 months for the results to be recognizable. Nevertheless, Sculptra is one of the most cost-effective dermatology fillers as it can last 2-3 times longer than Radiesse and 4-5 times longer than Restylane or Juvederm.


Collagen dermatology fillers have been around ever since man has shown interest in looking young again. These dermatology fillers in Delray Beach are inexpensive and are quite easy to administer. Here’s the catch. Since collagen is a protein and if you have severe allergies, you might want to ask for a sensitivity testing first before getting your collagen dermatology fillers. There have been cases of allergic reactions to collagen, albeit low at 2 percent.

These are 4 of the most commonly used dermatology fillers in Delray Beach. So, if you visit Balshi Dermatology, be sure to ask any one of these.
