Juvederm / Radiesse / Fillers
What are dermal fillers?
As we age, our faces lose volume, about one teaspoon every year. Over time, skin begins to sag and youthful contours evolve. Thin lips, sunken cheeks, wrinkles, and folds can be improved by replacing that lost volume with dermal fillers. They can also be used to enhance facial contours, with procedures such as lip augmentation and non-surgical “nose jobs.”
How dermal fillers are used
Often dubbed “liquid facelift” dermal fillers reduce the signs of aging and sagging skin by replenishing facial volume. It is a long-lasting, non-surgical, and reversible procedure with no downtime. Only a few gentle injections are needed, and the result can last for several months to over a year (depending on the product and technique).
Dermal filler prices
The exact cost of Juvéderm depends on the type, and the amount of filler needed. A quote will be provided for the volume required to match your specific needs before treatment is rendered.
What is Restylane?
Restylane products are injectable dermal fillers, used to replace lost facial volume. They are formulated with NASHA (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid). Restylane was the first stabilized hyaluronic acid based dermal filler to win approval from the FDA. This unique formula revolutionized cosmetic treatment, providing a safe, virtually allergy-free option. Hyaluronic acid is easily accepted by the body, because it is a naturally occurring component in skin. Restylane products are the only dermal fillers to win FDA approval for lip augmentation in individuals over the age of 21.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a popular brand of dermal filler, used for correction of facial wrinkles and folds. It is formulated with hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally present in the skin. That makes it very safe and biocompatible, so allergy testing prior to treatment is not required. Juvéderm is unique in its ultra-smooth texture, thanks to exclusive Hylacross technology. Juvéderm is the only hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has been FDA approved for results lasting up to a full year with a single treatment. Results are instant and amazing!
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a unique concept in dermal fillers. It is formulated with a thick gel base for immediate, visible results, like other fillers. However, Radiesse also contains microspheres that serve as scaffolding for your natural collagen network. This increases the formation of new collagen, providing a natural lift from your own body. The visible results last long after the filler has been absorbed.
Combination treatments with fillers
Used alone, dermal fillers can yield beautiful results. However, to achieve the maximum benefit, it is often combined with other products and procedures. Neurotoxins, such as Botox, are an excellent complement to dermal fillers. Botox is typically used to treat wrinkles on the upper portion of the face, while fillers address those on the lower portion. Other cosmetic enhancements such as laser resurfacing or chemical peels may be recommended to treat skin laxity, sun damage, discoloration and other aesthetic issues.
