A dermal filler is a product that is injected or placed into the skin through a tiny needle. Dermal fillers are used to contour and add volume to various parts of the face. They can also correct imperfections like acne scars, wrinkles, furrows, contour depressions, and fine lines. Some are used to build cheekbones, change facial contours, and augment lips.
Among the most effectively treated areas are the nasolabial folds – those smile lines or “parentheses” that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth, creases around the mouth and lips, marionette lines, and sunken under eye appearances (tear troughs).
Our Dermal Fillers consist of natural substances found in your body, allowing for a medically safe way to provide volume and add fullness to your skin. Our Dermal Fillers include Juvederm™, Radiesse®, and Belotero Balance®.
Juvéderm is a next-generation injectable gel and represents the latest advance in hyaluronic acid cosmetic dermal filler technology. As we age, our skin changes and loss of natural volume can result in wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm is a non-surgical treatment that can be helpful to reduce the signs of aging and also dramatically reduce moderate to severe nasolabial folds (smile lines) and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Juvéderm, and other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, are proven to be safe and effective for men and women of any ethnicity or skin color.
How does Juvéderm work?
Juvéderm is gently injected under the skin to instantly add volume and fill in the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth. Juvéderm can also be used on other areas of your face, where deep folds or wrinkles can occur. The injection itself usually takes only about 15 minutes with minimal recovery or downtime. After treatment, some temporary injection-related reactions may occur, which are usually mild to moderate and should clear up in seven days or less. Reactions may include redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps. The effects of Juvéderm treatments last 9 to 12 months.
Radiesse is a cosmetic dermal filler made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, suspended in a smooth water-based gel carrier. Radiesse is part of the next generation of dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines),build cheekbones, and augment jaw lines. It can also be used to correct the signs of aging or add contours to other areas of the face – giving you soft, natural-looking results. Once injected into the skin, it also stimulates the natural production of new collagen, helping to build your skin’s natural foundation. Radiesse is proven to be safe and effective for men and women of any ethnicity or skin color.
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse is a cosmetic dermal filler that is injected into the skin through a tiny needle. Treatments may take 15 minutes or longer, depending upon the area(s) being treated. Some bruising, bleeding, or swelling may occur at the injection site, which may last up to 2 weeks. Most patients enjoy the results from their Radiesse treatment for 9 to 12 months.
Belotero Balance is an injectable prescription gel that is approved to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds (the folds or wrinkles that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth).
