Juvéderm is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and wrinkles, crow's feet, thinning lips and loosening skin. Juvederm can also “plump up” the lips, sculpt the cheeks, and restore a youthful oval shape to the face. Juvederm is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. Because Juvederm is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible, no pre-treatment testing is needed. Juvéderm comes in Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus optimized for the depth of the area being treated. Juvederm also comes with and without the addition of lidocaine, making injections more comfortable. Results last about 6-12 months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.
Recently approved by the FDA, Restylane-L® takes the popular hyaluronic acid dermal filler to the next level by adding lidocaine, a local anesthetic used to reduce the pain of the injection for a more comfortable experience. The gel particle structure is the same as traditional Restylane injections, producing the same level of results in smoothing away moderate to severe wrinkles and lines.
Most patients now prefer treatment with Restylane-L for its added benefits. We are proud to offer this advanced new product at our practice to provide patients with the desired results of a Restylane injection, which can last up to 18 months, with less pain and no need for additional medication.
Perlane-L® is a more comfortable alternative to traditional Perlane injections, which can be administered to treat deep facial lines, augment the lips, and contour the cheeks and chin in patients unhappy with the effects of aging on their appearance. Made by the same company that produces Restylane-L®, Perlane-L contains purified hyaluronic acid and lidocaine, a local anesthetic that can effectively reduce discomfort during and after treatment while achieving the same level of improvement.
Like Restylane-L, Perlane-L produces long-lasting results, but contains larger gel particles, making it more effective for those deeper folds within the skin. There is no skin testing required by treatment, and since no additional anesthesia is needed, treatment times are shortened and patients can fit Perlane-L injections easily into their schedule.
While Belotero Balance® Dermal Filler is made of the same material (HA) as some other dermal fillers, Belotero Balance® Dermal filler has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth) as well as more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).
Belotero Balance® Dermal Filler is injected into the skin using a very fine needle, filling in your wrinkles right before your very eyes. Belotero Balance Dermal Filler works immediately to fill in your wrinkles and folds so you'll leave your healthcare provider's office knowing Belotero Balance Dermal Filler is working for you. Not only are results with Belotero Balance Dermal Filler instant, they are proven to last. In a clinical study, many patients saw results that lasted about six months or more.
