Did you know that many signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss and thinning tissue, resulting in wrinkles and an appearance of the “face falling”? Our various products allow us to customize a treatment to smooth, lift, soften, and fill, leaving every patient looking refreshed and beautiful.
Dermal fillers like Juvederm are made up of a sugar molecule, hyaluronic acid which is naturally found in the body’s collagen. This molecule is attached to a gel matrix and cross-linked to create different densities that are used for different effects. Radiesse uses Calcium hydroxyapatite, which is suspended in a smooth gel. Because of its greater density, it is often used to sculpt areas like the jaw line.
The filler is injected precisely where needed to contour, add volume and shape the face to restore a smoother, more youthful and rested appearance. Depending upon the type of filler used and the area treatment, results typically last 6 to 12 months, or longer.
Filler is effectively used to:
• Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles anywhere on the face, including around the nose and mouth (a.k.a. marionette lines, smile lines, and parentheses)
• Plump and enhance the lips, diminishing any lines
• Enhance and restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples and improve symmetry among facial features by adding balance and dimension
• Refresh tired eyes
• Rejuvenate the hands
