What do you think are the best or most promising fillers currently available and what can they be used for?
I believe there are two basic types of fillers on the market right now. The two groups are the hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm. The second class is the calcium hydroxyapetite, or Radiesse. I consider this last one a volumizer more than an actual dermal filler. I use this filler to add volume, much like I use fat in the operating room. My favorite area to use it is in the cheeks, where it adds volume and gives a nice cheek lift. The hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are great for the nasolabial folds, marionette lines and for the tear trough area just between the lower eyelid and the cheek.
