The Thick & Thin of Dermal Fillers: The Best Fillers for Lips, Cheeks, Jawline & More

The thick and thin of fillers

“What is the best dermal filler for lip injections? Which cheek filler should I get? How do I choose the right filler for fine lines? Chin augmentation? Nonsurgical nose job? etc…”

These are questions we hear every day from our dermal filler patients in San Francisco, and we honestly love answering them. There’s certainly a recipe for success when it comes to creating amazing filler results, and it’s all about choosing the right ingredients and Injector.

Did you know that dermal fillers come in a variety of textures and densities? Not all fillers are the same in terms of how thick they are and how easily they spread under your skin. Depending on what your face is craving (rejuvenation, contour, volume, plumping), it’s important that your Injector chooses the right filler based on your treatment area, anatomy, and goals. At the Mabrie Facial Institute, we believe the best results are made-to-order.

You can explore our menu of options in the slideshow below.

When it comes to fine lines, only a slippery, super-soft filler like BELOTERO BALANCE®, Restylane® Silk, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® will do. Give this thickness a try when you're fed up with vertical lip lines and other fine wrinkles.

There's no fruit-at-the-bottom, but JUVÉDERM® Ultra has that velvety yogurt consistency perfect for lips and surrounding areas. Preserve plenty of natural movement around your mouth while adding a layer of soft, silky volume.

We love jelly/jam (strawberry for us)! Restylane® Kysse™ is perfect when you’re craving smooth and natural-looking lip volume. It leaves your lips looking subtly plump and extra sweet, sometimes with as little injected as half a syringe.

Medium-soft fillers that spread like honey are a sweet option for smoothing nasolabial folds and marionette lines. They provide the structure you need to fill in deeper folds with a softness that still allows for plenty of natural movement.

Cubes, rings, animal shapes—that’s the fun of Jell-O. That same ability to hold shape is what makes Restylane-L® ideal for refining your nose and under-eye area. It's a favorite for nonsurgical rhinoplasty treatments.

When is peanut butter on your chin a good thing? When it's a peanut butter-y filler, like RADIESSE®, that's medium-firm and great for contouring the chin, cheekbones, and jawline.

Tofu may not be for everyone, but many of our patients benefit from firm fillers with a tofu-like consistency. These versatile products are great for adding volume and shape to the midface, cheekbones, chin, and temples.

Grapes are good for you, and firm fillers with a grape-like texture can be, too. Fillers like JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ add definition and form to your chin and jawline, mimicking the look of bone.
