INJECTABLES AND FILLERS
Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance. With treatment of injectables, you can restore the lost volume in the face, revealing a younger, more youthful appearance, without having to have surgery.
Restylane and Perlane
Restylane and Perlane are dermal fillers that are long-lasting and add volume to help diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Made of a natural substance called hyaluronic acid, a natural crystal-clear biodegradable gel, it is metabolized by the body without the need for skin testing. Restylane and Perlane are most commonly injected in the lines that form around the nose (nasolabial folds) and can also be used for sculpting lips. Restylane and Perlane are an excellent treatment for wrinkle correction, lip enhancement, smile lines and deep folds.
The difference between Restylane and Perlane is the size of the particle (with Perlane containing more hyaluronic acid). This means that Perlane does a better job of filling deep lines while Restylane is used in fine lines or in individuals with thinner skin. These products last between six and nine months, although individuals will have varied results.
Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a “next-generation” dermal filler. The smooth consistency gel helps 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).
Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid — a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.
Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin’s lost volume. Upon injection, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what’s unique about RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which is why more and more cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE Volumizing Filler to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
