Conveniently located to serve New York City, Tribeca, and The Upper East Side

At Tribeca Medspa in NYC we know that choosing the right filler is the first step towards achieving the smooth, plump, and youthful skin you desire. With a variety of options available, including Juvederm, Restylane, and the RHA Collection, this guide will help you understand the differences between these fillers and determine which one is best suited for your needs.

Understanding Dermal Fillers: The Basics

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments designed to restore lost volume, smooth lines, and enhance facial features. Most are comprised of a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA), a common skincare ingredient that is also naturally occurring in the body. This molecule is a humectant, and can absorb up to 1000x its weight in water, bringing hydration and volume wherever you desire it. While all fillers aim to achieve similar outcomes, their formulations and applications can vary, making some better suited for specific concerns than others.

Juvederm: The Versatile Choice

Juvederm is one of the most well-known families of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, celebrated for its versatility and long-lasting results. The Juvederm range includes:

  • Juvederm Ultra XC: Ideal for adding volume to the lips and smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles.
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus XC: Similar to Ultra XC but with a thicker consistency, making it suitable for deeper wrinkles and folds.
  • Juvederm Voluma XC: Designed to restore volume in the cheeks and enhance facial contours, providing a subtle lift.
  • Juvederm Vollure XC: Excellent for smoothing nasolabial folds and marionette lines with results lasting up to 18 months.

  • Juvederm Volbella XC: Perfect for enhancing lip volume and smoothing vertical lip lines with a softer, more natural look.

Restylane: The Reliable Option

Restylane is another leading family of HA fillers known for its diverse range and reliable results. The Restylane collection includes:

  • Restylane-L: A versatile filler for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
  • Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine: Ideal for adding volume to the cheeks andtreating deeper wrinkles, and the only FDA-approved dermal filler to restore volume in the hands.
  • Restylane Silk: Specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and smoothing fine lines around the mouth.

  • Restylane Defyne: Similar to Refyne but designed for deeper lines and folds, providing a more significant lift.
  • Restylane Kysse: Tailored for lip enhancement, offering natural-looking volume and flexible movement.

RHA Collection: The Resilient Newcomer

The RHA Collection (Resilient Hyaluronic Acid) is the latest advancement in dermal fillers, designed to adapt to facial dynamics. These fillers are formulated to provide natural-looking results while maintaining flexibility and resilience. The RHA Collection includes:

  • Redensity: Treats fine lines around the mouth, marionette lines, or nasolabial folds.

Choosing the Right Filler for You
