What Are the Top Dermal Filler Brands?

Within the rapidly growing world of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, injectable dermal fillers are second only to botulinum toxin A treatments (chiefly Botox®) in popularity. 

It’s no wonder why. In most cases, their action is temporary, so patients aren’t stuck with unsatisfactory results. They’re relatively low-risk and have few side effects when administered by well-trained medical professionals working under the supervision of a cosmetic surgeon or other board-certified provider. And their volumizing, age-defying results speak for themselves.

What Are the Top Hyaluronic Acid Filler Brands?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that’s the active ingredient in the most common type of filler product: hyaluronic acid fillers.

HA fillers are primarily used as lip fillers and facial fillers. They’re effective for addressing volume loss in the lips and cheeks and can temporarily reduce lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, such as nasolabial folds.

HA fillers’ effects appear within days and typically last for about 12 months — though effective periods between 6 and 24 months, depending on the filler brand, the patient, and the condition being treated.

The top HA filler brands include:

  • Restylane® Silk
  • Restylane® Lyft
  • Juvederm® Volbella
  • Juvederm® Volbella XC
  • Belotero® Hydro
  • Belotero® Soft
  • Belotero® Balance
  • Belotero® Intense
  • Belotero® Volume

What Are the Top Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) Filler Brands?

Poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA, is a low-impact (biocompatible) material that’s also found in dissolvable stitches. It stimulates the body’s natural collagen production and creates a rigid structure that makes it easier for collagen to adhere and grow.

One PLLA filler brand stands above the rest, at least in the United States: Sculptra® Aesthetic.

Sculptra Aesthetic treatments typically require more than one injection appointment, and results can take weeks or even months to appear. But once they do, they’re long-lasting. In fact, PLLA is considered functionally permanent.

PLLA fillers do have one significant downside: their results are difficult to reverse. For this reason, it’s best to use them only if you’re committed to living with the results — and to work with an experienced provider who has completed extensive dermal filler training.

What Are the Top Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHa) Filler Brands?

Calcium hydroxylapatite, or CaHa, is the active ingredient in another type of long-acting dermal filler. Its results typically last at least 12 months and can persist for even longer, depending on the treatment area, patient, dosage, and other factors.

The most popular CaHA filler brand is Radiesse. It’s used to treat a variety of cosmetic complaints, including:

  • Volume loss in the cheeks and mid-facial contours
  • Unsightly smile lines and laugh lines
  • Deep marionette lines

Radiesse is also popular for volumizing the hands in patients facing age-related wrinkling and volume loss.

What Are the Top Permanent Filler Brands?

Patients seeking an even longer-lasting solution without the risk and expense of plastic surgery turn to semi-permanent fillers derived from polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). 

PMMA is a biocompatible substance housed in microspheres injected beneath the surface of the skin. It’s a popular solution for people looking to durably increase lip volume.

In the United States, the top PMMA filler brand is Bellafill®. With effects lasting five years or longer, it’s the most durable lip filler on this list.
