one of the newest of the so-called “injectable fillers,” is used by cosmetic, dermatological and plastic surgeons to soften deep folds and reduce wrinkles in the faces of patients. The substance is chemically closely related to the facial filler Restylane; both are largely comprised of hyaluronic acid, a substance normally found in the skin, muscles, and tendons of mammals. Approved in June 2006 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Juvéderm’s prime use is removing nasolabial folds, or “smile lines,” creases of skin which run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. It is also used as a lip augmentation agent, to fill in hollow places and scars on the face. Juvéderm is being touted as “the next generation” hyaluronic acid facial filler and is said by physicians to be slighter smoother to inject and perhaps somewhat longer lasting in the body than Restylane. However, all hyaluronic acid facial filler products are eventually absorbed by the body, usually within six to nine months, causing the patient to undergo repeat injections to maintain the younger look. Juvéderm is also used by physicians to plump up lips which also lose fat and internal shape with normal ageing. Like Restylane, Juvéderm is extremely popular among consumers and medical providers alike because it results, in a younger, more refreshed looking face immediately.
Restylane grants you the freedom to correct and enhance your beauty. Whether you would like to smooth out wrinkles, create fuller, more sensouous lips or add definition and volume to your cheeks or chin, it is a safe and natural product used for cosmetic derma filling. Restylane is the smart and easy way to add volume and smoothness to your skin. Most commonly used for lip augmentation, lip restoration, improving facial lines, folds and depressed scars, Restylane enhances your natural looks by restoring your skin's volume, creating softness and revitalizing your appearance. Youthful skin is rich in hyaluronic acid. Restylane, made of hyaluronic acid, works by enhancing your skin's own stocks, directly adding volume to either soften the signs of aging or enhance your features. Restylane maintains its shape using the body's own moisture. The hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide lasting results. Restylane is one of the most tried and tested dermal fillers available today. It is the benchmark for clinical excellence in its field. Its safety and efficacy are clinically proven and supported by robust clinical date, spanning 10 years. The procedure is quick. It usually takes less than 30 minutes. The benefits can be seen immediately.
Perlane, the newest member of the Restylane family, is used to soften wrinkles and facial folds. Like it's cosmetic dermal filler partner, it replaces lost volume and restores youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to sever facial wrinkles and folds, such as lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Perlane is also used to diminish worry lines, crowe's feet, and smokers lines. Other treatments include lip enhancement, filling chin augmentation, filling cheek depressions, redefining lip border and softening acne scars. The hyaluronic acid in Perlane supplements the body's natural supply, which becomes depleted with age. The results of a Perlane filler treatment tend to last six months to a year. Because of the high concentration of hyaluronic acid and the larger gel particle size, Perlane is usually used for larger folds. Perlane's water-loving nature attracts and binds water molecules to help maintain volume. Perlane is proven to deliver long-lasting results.
Radiesse, the next generation in long lasting wrinkle correction, is a safe cosmetic dermal filler that lasts longer than the former leading filler. It is setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles, restoring a natural, youthful look in an easy, convenient treatment. Numerous medical studies have shown that Radiesse is a safe, longer lasting treatment to fill and correct smile lines, nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Radiesse is made of unique calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin through a simple, safe and minimally invasive procedure. Through years of clinical studies and independent research, Radiesse has proven to be safe and effective. With Radiesse, you get safe, FDA approved, clinically tested reliability. Radiesse works with your body, below the skin's surface, to stimulate the production of collagen and encourage tissue regeneration. It does more than just temporarily fill-in facial lines and wrinkles - it builds your skin's foundation. Radiesse is made of very small, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, which are suspended in a water-based gel carrier. as Radiesse is injected, the gel and Radiesse Microspheres form a scaffold, stimulation collagen production and encouraging tissue growth in and around the injection area. This partnership between Radiesse and your own body creates a natural look, comprised of your own tissue and Radiesse Microsheres. Over time, your body absorbs the gel carrier while collagen has started to grow and infiltrate the area, replacing the gel with your own, natural tissue. The Radiesse Microspheres continue to provide the support and structure for your body to grow new tissue and collagen until the Microspheres are also safely and naturally absorbed into your body. You get immediate results and look younger, longer.
