Smooth facial wrinkles and fine lines, as well as add volume and lift to the face without surgery. Dermal fillers are FDA-approved, so they are safe and effective.
RADIESSE is a filler that is best used to volumize or plump deeper folds. It adds lift to areas that have more significant volume loss.
Restylane® Lyft is a safe, effective, and dissolvable hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It is the first and only FDA-approved Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler that provides lift to cheeks and adds volume to correct and smooth smile lines.
Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles, and a reduction of volume. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane® Lyft, formally known as Perlane, is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and mid-face area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Wrinkles are only part of the aging process. As we age, we lose volume in our cheek area, which is partly responsible for the loss of a youthful profile. The typical youthful cheek follows the shape of an ‘ogee’ curve with a rounded lift. With age, the curve starts to flatten, and cheeks begin to sag.
Voluma® is a facial injectable that is injected under the skin with a very small needle. Results are noticed instantly with an increase in the amount of volume and subtle lift in the cheeks. The product contains lidocaine, a numbing agent, to ease any discomfort.
Just like traditional facial fillers, there may be slight swelling and redness at the injection sites. Some patients may experience bruising, but carefully following before and after protocols can help prevent it.
Sculptra works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. Sculptra is made with a biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid.
The specialist injects treatment into the appropriate dermal plane where strands of collagen support your skin’s structure. This is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.
As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.
Sculptra addresses an underlying cause of facial aging, not just the symptoms. Results appear gradually and can last up to two years. If you want to appear more youthful—without looking like you’ve had work done—then chances are Sculptra may be a good choice for you.
The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost. On average, three injection appointments are needed for a few months.
Designed specifically for lips and the lines around them, Restylane Silk has recently been approved for release in the United States! It’s the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age.
Just like the other members of the Restylane family, Restylane Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid — a sugar that is naturally present in your skin.
With Radiesse, you can now look younger and replenish lost volume to boot! You can enjoy immediate results with this cutting-edge wrinkle filler. Radiesse is FDA-approved.
Folds and wrinkles can disappear almost instantaneously by simply adding volume. The benefits continue by stimulating your body’s natural collagen. Results also last longer – up to a year or more for many patients.
Just like any medical procedure, there are some risks involved with the treatment, even if it is non-surgical. Side effects from dermal fillers might include a lump beneath the skin due to the clumping of particles.
Certain products may cause allergic reactions. Lastly, there may be some swelling and bruising at the site of the injection, though this normally goes away within a week.
There is no set age at which you should start or stop getting fillers. Anywhere in the mid-to-late twenties is a common time to begin fillers as it helps you stay ahead of wrinkle formation. Patients choose dermal fillers at many points in their lives, but we do see a lot of individuals in their 40s.
To achieve different goals, there are many different types of fillers. Each FDA–approved filler may contain hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, or Poly-L-lactic acid.
