Hydraulic acid, collagen and elastin are gradually diminished from the dermis as skin ages. Fine lines, wrinkles and loss of volume can be prevented and solved with the proper placement of injectable cosmetic fillers.
• Juvederm®: a smooth-consistency gel used to diminish unwanted wrinkles and to restore natural contours. Juvederm contains the hydraulic acid lost in the skin due to sun and age, restoring volume and structure and reducing fines lines and wrinkles.
• Radiesse®: a non-toxic, non-allergenic cosmetic filler that reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and deep skin folds around the mouth and nose. Radiesse is injected just beneath the skin, stimulates natural collagen production and can last up to a year or more.
• Restylane®: a non-animal, hydraulic acid cosmetic filler approved by the FDA to replenish dermal volume loss from the aging process, to correct subtle acne scars or to enhance facial features. Restylane is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hydraulic acid; therefore used to visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
• Perlane®: this filler adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). The gel particles in Perlane are larger which makes a good choice for wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin.
