Dermal Fillers

Restylane® Skin Treatment

Our skin’s appearance is directly linked to the support system underneath the skin. Aging, sun exposure, dietary factors, smoking, and disease can all weaken the foundation supporting skin layers. Lines, wrinkles, and other surface depressions in the skin that are becoming more noticeable may be effectively treated with a product called Restylane®. Restylane® is made of a natural substance called hyaluronic acid, which is found in all lifeforms and provides volume and fullness to the skin. Hyaluronic acid can absorb up to 1000 times its weight in water. Restylane® is placed just beneath the skin surface as a filling agent to remove fine lines, depressions, acne scars, and wrinkles.

Sculptra™ Anti Aging Treatment

Sculptra™ is a dynamic and exciting new injection procedure that can be used to help reduce the effects of aging and restore the beauty of the skin in specific areas of the face. Sculptra™ is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic product that's not made from human or animal sources. The ingredients in Sculptra™ are harmless and compatible with body tissue, meaning they are able to be broken down within the body. PLLA has been widely used in other applications like soft tissue implants and dissolvable stitches. Clinical studies have shown improvement in facial appearance and skin thickness can last up to two years in patients. Unlike other injectable fillers, the results of Sculptra™ will not be noticeable immediately. Over time, you will see a visible and desirable increase in skin thickness that diminishes or eliminates facial wrinkles. After your initial treatment, another examination after a few weeks will help determine if additional skin treatments would be helpful. Over time, occasional touch-up applications may help maintain desired results.

Juvéderm™ Anti Aging Treatment

As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as lines and wrinkles form. With Juvéderm™ injectable gel, you don't have to let this happen. Recently approved by the FDA, Juvéderm™ is a “next-generation” dermal filler. This uniform consistency gel helps to instantly restore skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds like your "smile lines" or “parentheses”, also known as the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth. Juvéderm™ is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Placed under the skin, it provides an even, natural look and feel that everyone will notice without knowing the truth behind it. Juvéderm™ injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for people of color. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Juvéderm™ injectable gel offer a safe and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. Because Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a simple, nonsurgical treatment, there is minimal recovery and downtime.

Radiesse® Skin Treatment

Radiesse® is the newest, non-surgical facial contouring filler that delivers an immediate, longer lasting result and is FDA approved. Whether you’re longing to reverse the common signs of aging or address a health issue that otherwise would require an invasive treatment, you have more options in looking and feeling better with Radiesse®. A new generation injectable filler, it offers superior versatility for both cosmetic and reconstructive use without surgery. The unique composition of Radiesse® provides immediate visual improvement that's common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results. It fact, it frequently lasts a year or longer. Radiesse® is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, which form a scaffold through which your body’s own collagen grows. They work with your body below the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of collagen and encourage tissue regeneration. These unique advantages make Radiesse® an ideal choice for facial shaping and contouring, along with other therapeutic applications. It is commonly used to correct smile lines, Nasolabial Folds, and wrinkles around the nose and mouth; it can be used for restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss. We have found particular benefit in cheek enhancements with Radiesse®. Our patients have loved the non-surgical lift they receive!

Belotero Balance® Dermal Filler

Belotero Balance® Dermal Filler, new among fillers for the face, was approved by the FDA in 2011 to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. It seamlessly integrates with a patient’s skin and adapts to facial contours with immediate results. By molding to fit distinct facial contours, it softens lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nose, lips, mouth, face, cheek bones, back of hands, and décolletage for smooth and natural results. A HA dermal filler, it is made of the same volumizing and moisturizing component that skin has, so it is the natural choice for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. When injected, it instantly smoothes and adds volume to the areas where it is needed. Even the smallest wrinkles and fine lines can be treated with confidence. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas, yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas. Belotero Balance® Dermal Filler provides noticeable results with little to no downtime. Most patients return to their normal daily activities right after their visit.
