What filler for the fold in my face? (Photo)

I have a fold on my right face (no such problem in left face). I am thinking about get filler to fix it. I was told I need voluma to fill it but I think it should be restylane since it is close to my eye and voluma is not suitable for near eyes. Any suggestions on what filler best fix this area?

Which filler?

Based on your photo I would recommend either Voluma or Lyft placed deeper for structure/support. It may be necessary to layer Restylane or Belotero more superficially if needed. Fillers will be the best option to address your concern. Please consult a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon experienced in aesthetic injectables. Best wishes.

Filler for face fold

you are correct in that you do not need Voluma. almost any filler can get you good results--Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Belotero--depends on your doctor's experience with the product.

What filler for the fold in my face?

I appreciate your question.

Restylane lyft would give you a nice result.  It achieves midface rejuvenation with less product volume as it is less likely to yield to compression.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Best of luck!

Juvederm Voluma

Juvederm Voluma would be my recommendation to fill the defect and enhance that area of your face. Of course, a personal consultation is needed to provide you with the best advice. I recommend finding someone who specializes in the face and has extensive experience with fillers and injectables. I wish you all the best.

Voluma for the Face

The fat pad in between the eye and the malar area needs correction.  Juvederm Voluma would definitely give you a correction of the area.  Please see a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with these facial injections.  Best, Dr. Green

Radiesse for Cheek Fold

Hi FlyingX.  The bottom line is that your injector has many choices to help with your concern.  The reason we use Radiesse is that it works very well because it is a thick product and supports the cheeks very well.  We also like it because it comes in a 1.5 CC syringe which is 50% more product than Voluma.  Finally, it is usually priced less than Voluma and lasts just as long or longer.  

We do not use Voluma because their FDA approval for a 2 year duration had the average patient using 6.5 CC's of product which costs about $4000 - $6000 in today's market.  The same work can be accomplished with Radiesse for about $1500 or less.
