Facial Fillers: Know The Difference
Dermal filler contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural substance found in the body
The body reduces the amount of HA that we produce in our skin. HA is a natural substance that is found in ample amounts within the body, and it helps maintain the skin’s youthful appearance by providing volume and hydration as well as lubrication and support for joints.

Types Of Dermal Fillers
Many new products have been introduced to customers over the last decade, resulting in an abundance of products that are available to physicians. New and unfamiliar facial filler brands can sometimes cause confusion for patients who are researching dermal filler for their ageing skin concerns.
Hyaluronic acid retains moisture and can absorb more than 1,000 times its weight in water. HA molecular properties bind with collagen and elastin fibres, transporting essential nutrients to those fibres, which make up much of the support structure of the skin. The loss of HA results in the progressive deterioration of the dermal structures that cause volume loss in the skin, with the development of lines and wrinkles on the face, particularly around the nose and mouth. Facial filler injections are a safe, effective way to smooth out lines and wrinkles that have formed on the face due to the unavoidable effects of aging.
There are a variety of facial filler products available on the market today. Below is some general information on the common products available on the market today for facial fillers.
Dr. Torgerson offers Teosyal products as his preferred choice of facial filler for most of his patients.

Brands of Dermal Fillers
Volbella is a sophisticated HA facial filler especially formulated for the lip area. The creators of Juvéderm have created Volbella as part of their VYCROSS Collection. Other injectable filler products that are in the same collection include Voluma and Volift. Volbella addresses the loss of collagen and elastin by enhancing the appearance of the lips and lip area, as it creates more volume and plumping effects in the lips.
Restylane is a product that is beneficial as a supplementary injection to Botox injections. Restylane is an HA-based product that is indicated for the treatment of moderate soft lines, making it an optimal choice for our younger patients who are seeking preventative measures in preserving and maintaining the youthful appearance of their face.
Perlane is produced by the same creators of Restylane. The formula inside Perlane injections contains larger molecules that are more effective in filling deeper, more mature wrinkles. Perlane is an HA facial filler that our doctors use for their mature patients who require a generous amount of filler to restore a more youthful, voluminous, and smooth appearance to their face. Common areas treated with Perlane include the cheeks, nasolabial folds, chin, and other areas affected by deeper folds and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid facial filler injections provide both immediate and extended smoothing, plumping results because they stimulate the production of collagen and encourage the regeneration of tissue cells into the area that has been injected. HA injectable fillers are commonly used for the smoothing of lines and wrinkles that have formed in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, which are the result of years of everyday muscle movement activity for the use of communication like talking, laughing, and smiling. Facial dermal fillers are also fantastic for adding volume to the cheeks and chin and for reducing the appearance of hollowness under the eyes. The most popular area for facial filler injections are the lips. Injectable fillers for the lips restore lost volume and can produce outstanding results with lips that appear fuller, plumper, and more beautiful. Our doctors are top-trained and experienced medical doctors who expertly inject clients to produce the best, most natural-looking results.
