Restylane is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Juvéderm Voluma is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. It is injected under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Radiesse dermal filler is made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, and is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure. RADIESSE dermal filler is the ideal choice for total facial contouring. It can restore a healthy, youthful appearance, enhance your existing features, help you defy age and gravity, and increase your confidence – all without invasive surgery or scarring.
Sculptra is another filler for rejuvenating facial skin. Also known as the liquid facelift, it works by filling in lines and wrinkles and by stimulating the body to produce new collagen and underlying tissue. It can result in a fuller, more youthful appearance.
Sculptra is FDA-approved. It is an injectable form of poly-L-lactic acid, a biodegradable, biocompatible synthetic polymer from the alpha-hydroxy-acid family.
Sculptra restores fullness of the face, creating a more natural appearance and treats the deepest wrinkles, acne scarring, and HIV lipoatrophy. Skin testing is not required prior to use. As with most injections, side effects (though typically minimal) can sometimes occur. The most common are redness, swelling and bruising around the treated area.
Juvéderm Voluma is the first and only FDA-approved filler to correct age-related volume loss in the midface. With Optimal treatment, natural-looking results last up to 2 years. Voluma is most commonly used to restore the “apple of the cheek”, which is naturally lost with aging. This volumization of the midface can actually help correct many problems in the surrounding facial areas, such as dark circles under the eyes, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. As it is composed of a highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid, it naturally disolves over time, but lasts longer than HA products with a lower degree of cross-linking. This leads to a long-lasting effect, proven up to 2 years.
Belotero is a hyaluronic acid filler with a relatively “soft” consistency, which allows use in more superficial wrinkles than most other fillers that can be used. It is perfect for superficial forehead creases, dark circles under the eyes, and lip definition. Belotero is sometimes used in conjunction with a more firm filler for filling deeper wrinkles, while the Belotero serves as the “icing on the cake” to achieve optimal results in the superficial layers of skin.
