Dermal Fillers are temporary prescription injections that are used to fill or plump up areas of the face such as smile lines, eye troughs and the lips. There are several different types of Dermal Fillers that are made up of a material called Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural component that exist in the skin and works to bind to water molecules creating a pumping effect that fills lines and folds allowing for a fast correction that is visible instantly.
Belotero is versatile filler that has special properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. It can handle deep treatment areas near the smile lines as well as the more shallow lines that exist around the upper lip line. Belotero injections treatment results are immediate and can last up to six or more months depending on the condition of the skin and overall movement of the area over time.
Perlane is composed of Hyaluronic Acid in a clear gel form that is injected through an ultra fine needle. This filler works to plump and smooth away wrinkles and folds. Perlane is attracts water that binds with the Hyaluronic Acid creating a long lasting effect maintaining volume in the areas treated. Perlane is non-animal based and does not contain any animal proteins which eliminates the need for allergy testing. Clinical studies have shown Perlane fillers last up to six months and gradually disappear through absorption by without leaving a trace.
Restylane is a dermal filler that is made up of a biodegradable, non-animal stabilized Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA). Restylane injections are intended for mid to deep dermal implantation to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. The Restylane spreads into the dermal tissues binding to water molecules creating volume. This makes it a good product for lip augmentation in patients over the age of 21.
Restylane: Starting at $550
Radiesse is considered the optimum solution for replacing volume in areas that need plumping. Results are immediate as the material that makes up Radiesse create a scaffolding affect under the skin to lift and plump. Radiesse also stimulations the body's own natural collagen growth which continues for several months. This natural growth creates a lasting effect to enhance the initial results of the injections.
Juvederm is made up of an injectable form of Hyaluronic Acid that is capable of producing 9 to 12 months of correction when used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. The technology found in Juvederm makes it a smoother malleable gel that holds water in the injection site acting as a cushioning agent. Juvederm increases temporary volume and creates a visibly smoother surface.
