Do you want to smooth facial wrinkles and restore a more youthful appearance? Injectible fillers, formed from soft tissue, can be used to fill out fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. They effectively reduce signs of aging and rejuvenate the skin. Most fillers require repeat visits since the filler will eventually be absorbed by the body during natural processes.
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC
As an FDA-approved injectable filler, Juvéderm Voluma XC adds volume to the cheeks without using surgery. Juvéderm Voluma™ XC, a gel, gets injected into your cheek to gently lift the skin, creating a more youthful appearance in your face. It temporarily restores age-related volume loss in your cheeks and lasts up to 2 years. You’ll immediately see the results.
An FDA-approved dermal filler, Juvéderm® Injectable Gel can correct smiles lines, also termed nasolabial folds, or add volume to the lips. The gel contains a smooth consistency that helps to instantly restore volume in your skin and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance in your skin, Juvéderm® helps add volume and hydration. You’ll see results up to 9-12 months.
Latisse, a topical solution, stimulates eyelashes to grow longer, thicker, and darker, creating a more youthful appearance. Many of our patients don’t realize their eyelashes contribute significantly to the aging appearance. As we age, our lashes get finer, shorter, and lighter in color. Mascara helps, but with continual use of Latisse, you won’t need mascara. Latisse includes lumigan, a chemical that reduces eye pressure (glaucoma) and increases the fluid that drains from your eye.
Our Radiesse® filler treatment, a safe and minimally invasive procedure, corrects smile lines (also known as nasolabial folds) and wrinkles around your nose and mouth. We inject Radiesse®, unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel, into the skin around your cheeks and nose. This FDA-approved dermal filler treatment lasts 9-12 months.
We inject Sculptra™, a synthetic biochemical material composed of Polylactic acid, into your skin to correct cosmetic problems. Since Polylactic acid is a biodegradable substance, your body naturally disposes of it. It’s also harmless for the body (biocompatible). Physicians have used it for years in absorbable sutures.
How does Sculptra™ work? Sculptra™ stimulates the collagen production by your skin’s own fibroblasts, which thicken the skin. We use it to correct certain cosmetic problems such as loss of fat in the cheeks and temples, mid and lower facial wrinkles, folds, and furrows. Sculptra™ won’t prevent you from losing fat in your face since it’s not a cure, but it can correct the resulting conditions from age-related fat loss, HIV lipoatrophy, and other medical conditions.
Our procedure takes 20-30 minutes. We inject Sculptra™ under the skin for usually 3 treatments with one month intervals. We can minimize the pain with topical anesthetic cream or by local anesthesia. The correction lasts 1 1/2 to 2 years.
