New Facial Fillers on the Horizon
New formulations of facial fillers have literally changed the game when it comes to anti-aging and facial augmentation! And facial filler technologies continue to improve every year.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 2.6 million facial filler injections were done in 2018—and those numbers are anticipated to continue to climb. So, as the need for injectable increases, manufacturers are rushing to develop new and novel facial filler formulas with uses. From longer-lasting facial fillers to fillers designed for delicate skin, the next several years are likely to be exciting for noninvasive cosmetic technologies.
New Juvéderm Formulas
Juvéderm is the number one facial filler manufacturer in the world. Juvéderm is actually a family of several facial fillers with several different formulas – each designed for use on specific areas of the face.
Thinner formulas of Juvéderm, such as Volbella XC, are the most spreadable – making them ideal for filling fine lip lines and treating the delicate area under the eyes. Thicker Juvéderm formulations, like Voluma XC, are suited for larger areas, such as the cheeks.
And now skilled plastic surgeons – like Birmingham, MI’s renowned Dr. Ali – can improve the shape of the nose or jawline with new and advanced hyaluronic acid facial fillers that are thicker, stronger and longer lasting than previous fillers.
Juvéderm Volite, which is now exclusively available in Europe and Canada, is not exactly a facial filler but rather an injectable therapy that is designed to enhance skin quality for up to nine months. Volite includes skin-conditioning hyaluronic acid (HA) gel to help minimize the appearance of fine wrinkles while also improving the skin’s general tone and texture.
The primary objective of this therapy is to aid in the appearance of hydration on the face, rather than to decrease the appearance of wrinkles or to add volume to the face. Not only is Volite used to hydrate the skin, but it also helps enhance general elasticity due to HA’s strong water-binding ability.
According to manufacturer Allergan, Juvéderm Volite will be available in the United States late in 2021.
Volux Juvéderm Facial Filler
Juvéderm Volux is another facial filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA) that is used to restore lost facial volume. But amazing new Volux is denser than many facial fillers on the market and is formulated to resemble bone. Due to the product’s thick density, it can be used to sculpt the jawline and chin region.
Volux is not currently accessible in the United States, but, like Juvéderm Volite, it is likely to be available in the US later in 2021.

ProfHilo Facial Filler
ProfHilo is a another hyaluronic acid (HA) facial filler used for skin laxity, manufactured by IBSA Farmaceutici Italia. It is different from other facial fillers in that it is devoid of the substance called “BDDE” – which is what prevents most fillers from being broken down by the body. ProfHilo is unusual in that it can stay stable and effective in the body in the absence of BDDE.
BDDE has been proven very safe in small quantities when used in facial fillers. Nonetheless, the fact that ProfHilo is BDDE-free appeals to consumers who are concerned about the usage of synthetic chemicals in their facial fillers products.
Additionally, ProfHilo is alleged to be more moisturizing and may enhance the skin’s suppleness, resulting in a firmer, more youthful appearance. Currently, ProfHilo facial filler is only accessible in Europe, and it is not expected to be available in the United States until 2022 at the earliest.
