Restylane® and Perlane®
Restylane® is a natural, cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to smooth out facial wrinkles and enhance lips. It is made of natural hyaluronic acid which already exists in the human body, therefore not requiring allergy testing prior to use. Restylane® is injected in small amounts underneath the skin with a small needle to fill in creases, lines, wrinkles and folds. Once Restylane® is injected into the skin it works with the body’s own hyaluronic acid to create volume. Lasting 5 to 9 months, it then dissolves into water and departs your body without leaving a trace. Perlane® is the newest FDA approved item of the Restylane® family. As the same hyaluronic acid of Restylane®, but with a larger particle size, it is designed for correcting deeper lines and folds.Restylane® and Perlane® are safe, long-lasting fillers that provide immediate dramatic results for improving folds, wrinkles, scars, and lips. They restore volume and fullness, resulting in a healthy and vital appearance.
Juvéderm™ is a “new generation” injectable filler made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. It is approved by the FDA to provide a smooth long-lasting correction of facial wrinkles and folds often lasting up to a year. Juvéderm™ adds volume and restores a smoother appearance to the skin by supplementing you body’s own hyaluronic acid with the highest concentration of non-animal, cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any dermal filler currently available. This has made it feel smoother than many other hyaluronic acid fillers. It is natural, biodegradable, and currently the only hyaluronic dermal filler that has demonstrated safety and effectiveness in patients of all skin types and colors. Juvéderm™ Ultra and Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus are indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).
RADIESSE® dermal filler is an FDA-approved, next-generation filler that is setting a new standard for the correction of deep facial lines and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. Made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, RADIESSE® dermal filler is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure giving you immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and providing long-lasting and beautiful results. In many patients, the effects of RADIESSE® treatment may last a year or more. Offering clinically proven safety and longevity, RADIESSE® offers several advantages over other fillers. Not only does it stimulate your body to produce new collagen, but it also encourages collagen to grow specifically around the injection area, in a process called collagenesis. This leaves your skin always building volume – and never reverting back to what it used to look like, so long as you continue to pursue preventative wrinkle care – which explains why it is also the preferred choice for total facial contouring, such as the replumping of cheekbones, the fatpad under the eyes, mandibles and jowls. In addition, RADIESSE® results are instantaneous – and typically last up to a year.
