Best fillers for deep lines
Filling lines or correcting the cause of the lines?
Simply "chasing the line" is usually not the best solution. Replacing volume in the areas that are deficient can restore both the fullness you had when you were younger and also help alleviate the lines and wrinkles. Remaining wrinkling can be addressed at that point.
Sculptra is still the most capable product for restoring age-related volume loss as it induces new collagen production. There is a new volumizing filler, Voluma, that is great for the cheekbone area and the chin.
Belotero will make a good finishing touch for fine lines.

Deep lines to fill
Deep lines to fill usually require a combination of fillers to restore lost volume. Injecting Restylane or Juvederm will give you an immediate filling in areas such as your nasolabial area. Sculptra is ideal if you are trying to replace lost volume in the mid-face and temples. Belotero is a fine hyaluronic acid filler. It is idea for fine lines such as around the mouth and for the under eye area.
Volumizers for Deep Lines
Belotero is a thin hyaluronic acid used in the superficial tissue to fill fine lines. This product would not be used to correct deep folds or lines. Usually, a thicker, more cohesive product is injected deeper in the dermis or directly on the bone for volume. One may then layer products and treat superficial with a product such as Belotero. This will give a beautiful result. Voluma is a product recently marketed by Allergan. It is a hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm, Belotero, Restylane and Perlane but, it is the first FDA approved product recommended for mid facial volume loss. Studies show that Voluma remains up to two years after optimal improvement has been met. I would also continue the Botox, as you have in the past.
