Dermal Fillers

About Procedure

The combination of the skin’s normal maturation process, sun damage and other factors causes changes in the appearance of various facial structures. Skin tends loses some of its versatility and begins to sag. Dermal fillers reverse this sagging by “plumping up” and adding volume to the treated regions.

Among the most successfully treated regions are the nasolabial folds (those grins lines or “enclosures” that keep running from the base of your nose to the sides of your mouth), around the mouth/lips, and under the eyes.

Our clinicians are specialists in treating patients with fillers. They are prepared in advanced procedures of filler utilize and are specialists in both the science and art of accomplishing the best esthetic results.

There are many dermal fillers currently available on the market. We have selected the ones we feel most sure about and most successful with. Our specialists will assess your necessities, and decide upon which filler is most appropriate to address your personal specific skin imperfection.

Fillers are now and then sorted by length – impermanent, semi-changeless, or lasting. We have tried everything that we carry, and feel positive about giving you the best and most secure quality in all things we offer.

What happens after the injections?

After the treatment, you can expect slight redness, swelling, conceivable wounding, delicacy or a tingling sensation in the treated area. This is a typical consequence of administering any injectable into the skin. The distress is provisional and for the most part, vanishes in a couple days. After a lip treatment, the lips may get to be swollen. This can persevere for a couple days.

Juvederm

Treatment Description

Juvederm is an injectable hylauronic dermal filler used by physicians to soften deep folds and reduce wrinkles that occur at different facial areas. Juvederm is unique because it contains the highest concentration of cross-linked hylauronic acid of any available dermal filler and this provides optimal results with a minimal number of treatments.

Approved by the FDA in 2006, Juvederm is commonly used to restore the skin’s volume and provide correction of wrinkles and nasolabial folds. The product, from the creators of Botox, is considered revolutionary due to the smooth consistency of its cross-linked composition. Because the product is composed of non-animal based hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring bodily substance, it can be considered hypoallergenic.

  1. Which areas are Juvederm dermal fillers most commonly used on?

Juvederm is an injectable gel will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients usually only need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and results can last for up to a year.

The hyaluronic filler is most commonly used for removing nasolabial folds – or smile lines – creases of skin that run from the corners of the nose to the mouth. The filler can also be used for lip augmentation, and to fill in hollowing regions of the face which most commonly occurs with age. Physicians may also elect to use the facial filler to smooth scarring and plump lips, which also lose fat and internal shape with normal aging.

For a comprehensive list of possible treatment areas look below:

Wrinkles correction, diminishing worrying lines, nasolabial folds, crow’s feet, marionette lines, smoker’s lines; chin augmentation, lip enhancement, redefining lip border, softening acne scarring, filling hollows around the eye, creating temporary brow lift, correcting facial depressions and softening the appearance of jowls.

  1. How is a treatment with Juvederm filler performed? Is it painful? Are there any side effects?

Juvederm filler is carefully injected under the skin using a fine needle (reducing discomfort), and like other injectable fillers, may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. The smooth consistency of the filler, however, allows our physician to administer the injectable easily and smoothly. Moreover, Juvederm is formulated with lidocaine (a local anesthetic) to make the entire treatment experience, which usually lasts approximately 15 minutes, more comfortable.

As with any injectable dermal filler, patients may commonly experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising or tenderness at the site of injection. Although these side effects typically gradually resolve on their own, the patient should immediately contact their physician should they persist.

  1. What should the patient do prior to treatment?

Most physicians recommend that the patient avoids the application and/or ingestion of high doses of Vitamin E, Aspirin, Advil (Acetaminophen) and any other agents that could indirectly increase bruising. Patients who are more prone to cold sores may need to complete a antiviral therapy regimen prior to injecting the lips.

Restylane

Restylane can be considered the most well known of dermal fillers available to patients in the United States and was the first injectable filler made of hylauronic acid to be approved by the FDA. Restylane is a transparent, clear viscous gel injected into the skin to smooth wrinkles, sculpt the contours of the lips and add volume to areas of the face that have lost volume as a result of age.

Commonly restylane treatments last approximately six months and because the filler does not contain any animal-derived ingredients it can be considered hypoallergenic. Restylane injections usually cause pain, swelling and recovery time that are minimal and brief. Treatments most commonly last approximately 30 minutes.

Similar to most other dermal fillers, based upon the patient’s pain tolerance or the severity of the condition, our physician may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream.

The result can be described as a soft, pliable filled area which gives the treated area a natural and revitalized look. After six to eight months your body absorbs the filler and the injections can be repeated, meaning that the treated area can be adjusted to compliment the changes that occur in your face over time.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

  1. What conditions and/or areas can Restylane injections be used for?

Restylane can be used for a variety of different conditions and areas – adding volume and fullness to aging skin correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds or laugh lines, which are the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth.

Restylane can also be used to treat other facial wrinkles including lipstick lines – that appear in the area above the upper lips; marionette lines – that extend downward from the corners of the mouth. Restylane can also be used to restore or add volume to the lips to give a more contoured and ageless look.

For a more comprehensive list of possible treatment areas, look below.

Diminishing Worry Lines & Crows Feet; Smoker’s Lines; Chin Augmentation: Filling cheek depressions: Redefining the borders of the lips; softening acne scarring; filling eye hollows: correcting facial depressions caused by fat loss: softening the appearance of jowls.

Commonly, different dermal filler can be used on the same client – either being layered in the same facial region or injected into different areas. Because different dermal fillers offer different thickness in nature the physician will commonly recommend a specific filler for a specific condition.

  1. What should the patient do prior to treatment?

Most physicians recommend that the patient avoids the application and/or ingestion of high doses of Vitamin E, Aspirin, Advil (Acetaminophen) and any other agents that could indirectly increase bruising. Patients who are more prone to cold sores may need to complete a antiviral therapy regimen prior to injecting the lips.

  1. How long does it take to see results, how long do results last and is the treatment painful?

Results of the injections can be seen immediately. Because restylane contains an anesthetic component, the treatment can be described as brief (approximately 5 – 10 minutes) and relatively painless. Restylane lasts approximately 6 months post-treatment with partial permanency attributed to the production of new, natural tissue growth.

Post-treatment, patients may experience some swelling, redness, pain, bruising or tenderness. These post-treatment symptoms are commonly mild in severity and normally last less than a week in facial wrinkles and less than two weeks in lips.

  1. How are Restylane and Perlane different from each other?

Restylane and Perlane are very similar to each other – they are made by the same company and from the same ingredients; however, Perlane is formulated thicker and used in deeper facial wrinkles and folds which could potentially make it last a bit longer. The thickness (of Perlane) makes it potentially uncomfortable for superficial use and there are good reasons to use both in appropriate areas. Neither of the two products are superior to each other in any way, and it is up to the physician to determine which product would yield better results for each patient’s particular situation.

  1. What should the patient do prior to treatment?

Most physicians recommend that the patient avoids the application and/or ingestion of high doses of Vitamin E, Aspirin, Advil (Acetaminophen) and any other agents that could indirectly increase bruising. Patients who are more prone to cold sores may need to complete a antiviral therapy regimen prior to injecting the lip

Radiesse

Treatment Description

Radiesse is an injectable dermal filler made of a synthetic substance containing microspheres of calcium hydroxylapetite. The filler is injected below the skin into the dermis by physicians to treat folds, wrinkles, asymmetry, hollowness, thin cheeks (also known as fat atrophy) and nasal bumps. Because the filler is made of ingredients that are not animal-derived, it can be considered hypoallergenic.

When injected into the deep dermis and subcutis, Radiesse creates a matrix into which the body’s own tissue can grow and gradually add volume. Because of this quality, the dermal filler is commonly used for soft tissue augmentation – adding volume and fullness to the lips and cheeks – and filling deep skin folds and wrinkles commonly associated with aging.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

  1. How does Radiesse Volumizing Filler work?

After injection, Radiesse plumps the skin and replenishes volume lost over time, giving the treated area(s) a more revitalized and replenished look. Over time, the injectable also works to stimulate the body to naturally produce collagen, and ultimately, the body absorbs the product and leaves behind the natural collagen for long-lasting results.

Commonly, Radiesse is referred to as the only dermal filler available composed of calcium-based microspheres that are clinically proven to stimulate the natural production of collagen, for results that may last up to a year or more in patients. Clinical studies have determined that due to the thickness of the material, 30% less Radiesse dermal filler was needed for correction when compared with other commonly used fillers.

  1. Which areas are Radiesse dermal fillers most commonly used on?

Radiesse is composed of a thicker, firmer material that should be placed in thick skin or directly over the bone for optimal results. Because of the thicker consistency of the material, less volume is usually necessary to achieve the same results as with Juvederm and Restylane injectables. Most commonly, the ideal areas for this filler are the cheeks and the jawline. Radiesse injectables are most commonly utilized on:

Prominent Nasolabial folds, Smile Lines, Oral Commissures, Marionette lines, Deep wrinkles correction, Chin Augmentation, Filling Cheek/Facial Depressions & Softening Acne Scarring / Appearance of Jowls

  1. How is a treatment with Radiesse filler performed? Is it painful? Are there any side effects?

Radiesse filler is injected under the skin safely and quickly with a procedure that commonly last less than half an hour. Radiesse is an FDA-approved filler that has been permitted to mix with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which makes the entire procedure more comfortable and less painful.

As with any injectable dermal filler, patients may commonly experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising or tenderness at the site of injection. Although these side effects typically gradually resolve on their own, the patient should immediately contact their physician should they persist.

  1. What should the patient do prior to treatment?

Most physicians recommend that the patient avoids the application and/or ingestion of high doses of Vitamin E, Aspirin, Advil (Acetaminophen) and any other agents that could indirectly increase bruising. Patients who are more prone to cold sores may need to complete a antiviral therapy regimen prior to injecting the lips.
