Restylane® 

Restylane®, an FDA-approved dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, restores volume by lifting and smoothing wrinkles and other fine lines. Restylane can also be used to add volume and shape to the lips. Pre-testing is unnecessary because Restylane is made from a natural substance found in the body and results last for several months through its unique ability to bind with water and remain in the skin. Visible results are instant and the effects last 6 months and longer and are enhanced by further treatment as needed.

Juvederm® 

Juvederm Injectable Gel restores volume to the skin and rejuvenates your appearance by smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is the first FDA-approved dermal filler proven safe and effective for all skin tones and is made of hyaluronic acid. The smooth consistency allows easy injections and instant, natural looking results. The instant results can usually last for up to a year, the longest results available from any hyaluronic acid product.

 

Belotero Balance® 

BELOTERO BALANCE®  dermal filler is an injectable filler that quickly integrates into your skin. Once injected, it instantly smoothes the lines and wrinkles in your face. Individual results may vary, but BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler may last about 6 months or more.

How Does it Work?

BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it plumps and fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.

What Can I Expect During Treatment?

During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, your doctor will inject XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) for injection, for intramuscular use, into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your brows. No anesthesia is required; but, your physician may use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort.

When Can I Expect To See Results?

Instantly! Immediately upon injection when treated to full correction, BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler plumps the skin and smoothes away lines and wrinkles.

How long is the recovery time?

There is very little to no downtime associated with a BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler procedure. In fact, most patients return to their normal daily activities right after their visit. Every patient is unique, so be sure to discuss your plans with your doctor during your consultation.

RADIESSE®

RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler, an FDA approved synthetic injectable filler, reduces moderate to severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by stimulating the natural production of collagen in the skin for results that may last up to a year or more in many patients. Ultimately the body absorbs the product and leaves behind the natural collagen for long-lasting results. Radiesse is made of calcium-based microspheres within a water-based gel and can be injected directly into the skin. It is similar to minerals found naturally in the body so allergy testing is not required.

Over time, the body absorbs the microspheres and gel, leaving behind only natural collagen. Radiesse is most effective in reducing the appearance of smile lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Immediately following the injection you’ll see results that can last up to a year and with continued treatment, you may require fewer and fewer treatments.

Where can RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler be injected?

RADIESSE Volumizing Filler can be injected in the following locations*:

  • Smile lines: also called the nasolabial folds, are the lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines: the lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth
  • Corners of the mouth: also called the oral commissure, if these are turned downward it can make you look as though you’re frowning
  • Pre-jowl: the area on either side of the chin, where skin can sag due to loss of facial volume
  • Chin wrinkles: horizontal lines that can form on your chin and distract from your smile

Is there anyone that should not use RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler?

RADIESSE Volumizing Filler should not be used in patients with severe allergies manifested by a history of anaphylaxis, a history or presence of multiple severe allergies or patients with known hypersensitivity to any of the components.

The safety of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler has not been established in patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding or under the age of 18. Patients using medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin or warfarin, may, as with any injection, experience increased bleeding or bruising at the injection site.
