Juvéderm® injectable is the first FDA approved smooth consistency hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally within the human body. When injected into wrinkles it smoothes them out by acting as a filling agent. When injected into a part of the body, like the lips, it plumps them up. Hyaluronic acid does not possess the allergic characteristics of some collagen type products and does not require skin testing prior to treatment.
Voluma is an injectable gel that is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and give a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than Juvéderm® XC and works on a different area of the face. Juvéderm® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the mouth like parenthesis. Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
Vollure ™ XC is the newest addition to the Juvéderm® collection of fillers and is a uniquely balanced gel product. Vollure™ XC helps to soften moderate to severe facial lines to create a smoother appearance while providing long-lasting results. It is the first and only filler proven to last up to 18 months in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Volbella® XC is a propriety filler technology from Allergan that yields smoothing products that have been formulated to address specific patient concerns, such as lip fullness, age-related volume loss in the cheek area and perioral rhytids. This hyaluronic acid gel is injected into the lips for a simple lip augmentation. It also aids in the correction of lip perioral rhytids in adults by adding volume and moisture to the lips. Volbella is specially formulated to give smooth and natural lip fullness that can last up to a year! Unlike Chemical Peels and Laser treatments that can’t address the fine lines around the mouth, Volbella treatment is specially formulated to address the concerns and softly enhance your pout!
Another FDA approved hyaluronic acid gel that closely resembles the body’s own hyaluronic acid. Restylane® lasts longer than human-based collagen, but is not permanent. Restylane® is the smart and easy way to add volume and smoothness to your skin. It does not require allergy testing.
Restylane® Refyne integrates with your skin to help smooth out the lines that run alongside the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). It offers flexibility you need for natural looking movement and expressions. Restylane® Refyne is a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler made with XpresHAn Technology™ that helps correct these lines for a more natural look.
Restylane® Defyne is designed to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid to help smooth out deeper lines around your mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) while letting you look more natural through a range of facial expressions.
Restylane® Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Through non-surgical injections, Restylane® Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and mid-face area which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Restylane® Silk helps improve, thinning lips, lost shape and vertical lines along the upper lip. Like other areas of the face, the mouth area can show signs of aging. Restylane® Silk uses a smaller, smoother HA particle than other Restylane® products.
How Long Does Restylane® Last?
The results achieved from getting Restylane® injectable are almost immediately apparent. That said, the hyaluronic acid in Restylane® injectable is absorbed by the body over time. The results of Restylane® can last up to 12 months.
However, in most cases the results from Restylane® injectable last closer to 6 months. When the results are no longer noticeable you can return for an additional treatment.
Sculptra® is a synthetic, injectable material known as “poly-L-lactic acid” and is injected below the surface of the skin, providing a gradual increase in skin thickness. Treatment results may last up to two years. Sculptra® is used for the treatment of facial lipotrophy and to fill in the nasolabial folds that deepen with age. Several treatments are required.
Since your body is already familiar with the substance used in Sculptra®, injections do not need allergy testing prior to treatment. In some cases we may apply a topical numbing agent to your skin before beginning the injections. The doctor will also mix Sculptra® with lidocaine before injecting it to help numb the area treated. Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra® is not injected into the skin. It’s injected under a facial wrinkle or hallowing, with even placement. After the injections are made the area will be massaged to help distribution of the product and prevent lumps and nodules from forming.
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. 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. Results are immediate and may last up to a year or more in some patients.
Belotero is a dermal filler specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural looking results that are uniquely you.
Belotero has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).
Belotero is made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.
