Cosmetic Dermal Fillers
Cosmetic Dermal fillers restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Dermal fillers are also used to enhance lips and minimize acne scars. The number of syringes is determined by the amount of material necessary to achieve optimal results. The cost of treatment depends upon the amount needed of the specific product used.
Juvéderm® & Juvéderm Voluma®
Juvéderm® is the first FDA-approved dermal filler proven safe and effective for persons of color. The Juvéderm gel is made of hyaluronic acid with a smooth consistency, allowing for easy injections and instant natural-looking results.
Juvéderm®, Volbella and Voluma® are FDA-approved dermal fillers formulated specifically to add volume to the face and soften fine lines around the cheeks and chin. These injectable gels were created to provide a subtle, natural enhancement to the mid-face, addressing changes in definition that occur over time. Dermal fillers can help restore more youthful contours by plumping up the area that so often loses volume as part of the aging process. It can also return a firmer shape to the jaw line when some softening has set in.
Restylane Lyft®, Restylane Silk,® and Restylane® injectable gels are cosmetic “fillers” that contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that is found in the body. HA gives volume and elasticity to the skin. As the body ages, HA levels decrease, resulting in loose skin and wrinkling. When injected, both gels are designed to plump up the skin beneath lines and wrinkles, smoothing them out and making them less noticeable. The difference between the three gels is the molecule size. Restylane Lyft gel, although similar in consistency to Restylane gel, contains larger particles, which are better at filling deeper depressions. Restylane Lyft® injections are used for moderate-to-severe lines around the lips, nose, mouth and forehead while Restylane® and Restylane Silk® are more commonly used for lips, tear troughs and fine lines.
Radiesse® volumizing filler is a synthetic injectable filler that has been U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved for reducing moderate-to-severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by augmenting the skin’s natural collagen supply. It is a safe, effective and long-lasting alternative to injectable collagen and other dermal fillers for smoothing wrinkles and adding facial volume and contour.
Bellafill® is approved for the correction of facial wrinkles known as nasolabial folds, or smile lines, and the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years. Bellafill® is also the only dermal filler established safe and effective for the correction of nasolabial folds through 5 years.
