What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectables that add definition, volume, and consistency to aging skin. Primarily made of chemicals naturally found in the body, dermal fillers are a fast, safe, and effective way to minimize the signs of aging. Because the injectable gel is removed from your body over time, periodic injections are required to maintain results.
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that has been used for over a decade. It is one of the most popular and successful dermal fillers available on the market today – over 15 million treatments have been administered in more than 65 countries worldwide. Restylane ® is primarily used to reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
JUVEDERM® is a trusted family of dermal fillers that work to correct moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth. All of their product are made with cutting edge HYLACROSS ™ technology, making them some of the most stable hyaluronic acid fillers available on the market today. And best of all, all JUVEDERM® products contain a mild anesthetic that lessens the pain of injection.
If you’re interested in applying a subtle contour and lifting effect to your cheeks, JUVEDERM VOLUMA ® XC may be right for you. JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC is a specialized dermal filler that adds volume and definition to the cheek area. It is the first FDA-approved dermal filler to serve this unique purpose. The results of JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC can last up to two years.
Sculptra® works by replacing lost collagen, correcting shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds. Sculptra® is unique among the dermal fillers that we offer in that it’s comprised of poly-L-lactic acid. Each treatment usually involves three injections over a period of a few months, with results lasting for more than two years.
A polymethylmethacrylate based (PMMA) collagen filler, Bellafill® can be used to treat facial wrinkles. It is also the only FDA-approved dermal filler used to treat acne scars. Bellafill® works by creating a PMMA microsphere that supports your body’s natural ability to produce collagen, improving your appearance over time.The results of Bellafill® can last up to five years, and it has a 90% rate of patient satisfaction.
Also capable of filling in facial wrinkles and folds, RADIESSE® is the first and only FDA-approved filler used for hand rejuvenation. Like JUVEDERM ®, RADIESSE® contains lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, that increases patient comfort during injections. The results of this treatment can last up to a year.
