Injectable results are seen immediately and can last from 1-3 years, depending on the type of filler injected. Patients should expect mild bruising and swelling the first 2-3 days after being injected.
Juvederm is a family of facial fillers, approved by the FDA, created to restore shape and fullness to the tissues. These innovative fillers can address deep Nasolabial Folds, between the nose and mouth; Marionette Lines, at the corner of the mouth; and Frown Lines, between the brows. Juvederm can also add volume to hollow areas of the face, contouring under the eyes, the cheeks, and the jawline. By gently plumping the skin, Juvederm can smooth aging areas of the face and take years off the appearance. The outstanding team of aesthetic professionals offer a variety of Juvederm products to rejuvenate the appearance and provide long-lasting results. After a complete consultation, the injections take only about 15 minutes. Juvederm is premixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so the procedure is comfortable. Patients may also request an additional topical or local anesthetic to further increase their comfort level. No downtime is required after treatment, so patients are free to return to their normal work schedule and routine.
The benefits of Juvederm injections can be seen right away. Patients will note their skin is plumper and smoother immediately. As Juvederm’s hyaluronic acid continues to encourage the body’s production of collagen, the benefits of Juvederm injections will remain for months to come. Depending on the area being treated, the extent of correction, and the specific Juvederm product used, the results from treatment will last for six months to two years, sometimes longer.
Radiesse is a smooth facial filler, made from tiny microspheres of calcium suspended in a water-based gel. The injectable has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective method for restoring lost facial volume, plumping tissues, and improving skin’s contour. The composition of Radiesse is similar to naturally occurring minerals already present in the body, meaning little chance for side-effects or complications after treatment.
Radiesse is meticulously placed using a small needle, adding immediate structure of the deepest layers of tissue. The filler will plump the skin, smoothing out moderate to severe wrinkles, such as Nasolabial Folds (or Smile Lines), and restoring shape to lax areas of tissue, such as the corners of the mouth and the ‘jowls’ along the lower jawline. Radiesse can also make the cheeks and jawline more prominent and proportionate with the surrounding features. To increase patient comfort during the injections, a topical anesthetic or dental block will be used prior to treatment. No downtime is necessary, so patients can return to their usual activities immediately after Radiesse injections. The benefits of Radiesse are long-lasting, remaining for one-two years. Over time, Radiesse will be safely and slowly absorbed and metabolized by the body.
Restylane is an FDA-approved facial filler. Made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in healthy skin, Restylane has an unmatched ability to smooth the deep wrinkles and lines that result from a loss of tissue elasticity. The HA in Restylane pulls in moisture from tissues to plump the skin, as well as encourage the body’s own production of collagen. Over the coming weeks, the results will continue to improve.
One of the most trusted dermal fillers available, Restylane can effectively restore volume under the eyes, along the cheeks or jawline, as well as shape and contour the lips. Restylane also offers an excellent option for reducing facial scars from acne or trauma. With few side-effects, no downtime, and long-lasting results, Restylane is the perfect solution for patients seeking nonsurgical facial rejuvenation.
Patients may request a local anesthetic or dental block for optimal comfort during treatment. Patients can expect to see the benefits of Restylane immediately. The results from a Restylane session will last for six to nine months, sometimes longer. At this time, a repeat session can extend the benefits of Restylane, keeping the appearance smooth and youthful. For optimal results, Experienced Nurse injectors may suggest an additional noninvasive treatment, such as Botox Cosmetic, to treat dynamic wrinkles (caused by repetitive expressions) along the forehead or around the eyes.
