In the world of injectables, Bellafill® is distinct. In addition to immediately adding volume to the skin to lift wrinkles known as "smile lines,"
Bellafill®l re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting production of your body's own collagen.
Approved by the FDA, Bellafill® has been approved for the correction of facial wrinkles known as nasolabial folds (smile lines) since 2006. Bellafill® equires a skin test to identify patients who may be sensitive to the lidocaine or bovine collagen in Bellafill®, which affected less than 1% in the Bellafill clinical trial. Bellafill® isn't just an exceptional cosmetic treatment option. Bellafill's® safety profile is comparable to the temporary fillers you are already familiar with and perhaps already using.
Note: Bellafill® was previously injected under the name of 'Artefill.'
Bellafill® for Acne
Bellafill® is the only injectable collagen treatment with PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres approved for the correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek in patients over the age of 21 years.
uvederm is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to provide nine months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). It is not recommended for use in lip augmentation.
Juvederm products are a smooth consistency gel, compared to some hyaluronic gel products that have a granular consistency. Juvederm products are developed using the Hylacross technology to allow a smoother, malleable gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. Hyaluronic acid works by holding in water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. It adds temporary volume and a smoother appearance to skin. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal results.
Some Juvederm XC products also contain the local anesthetic lidocaine for a more comfortable injection. Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC both contain 0.3% preservative-free lidocaine and numb the treatment area within seconds. The Juvederm Ultra Plus products contain more highly cross-linked formulations for volumizing and correction of deeper folds and wrinkles.
ADIESSE is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. RADIESSE is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. This filler works immediately to add volume under the skin, and, over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by naturally stimulating your body's own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long-lasting.
Why choose RADIESSE?
RADIESSE is a viable option to help provide a long-lasting, natural look while immediately smoothing wrinkles.
- RADIESSE immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen.
- Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres (calcium hydroxyapatite), leaving behind only your own natural collagen.
- RADIESSE is clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.
- RADIESSE provides results with high patient satisfaction.
- RADIESSE is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine, an anesthetic, to significantly reduce injection-related pain.
is a clear, non-animal-based, biodegradable gel that is composed of hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. Originally developed in Sweden, Restylane® filler injections are now marketed in the United States by Medicis, a leading pharmaceutical company that offers a wide range of other skin treatments. Restylane® is created from tissue cultivated in a laboratory, and is an excellent alternative to other fillers such as collagen and Hylaform®, which are both derived from animal products.
Restylane® requires only a few injections and no incisions or removal of tissue, so the risk of complications is quite low. That in turn means that almost anyone who would like to reduce the prominence of their facial lines and wrinkles can be a candidate for Restylane® treatments. Those allergic to avian-based hyaluronic acid treatments can safely use Restylane®, since it is derived from bacterial origins. Those with a history of allergy to bacterial protein, though, should not use the product.
Since Restylane® treatment requires no incisions and involves a very easy recovery process, it is very rare for a potential patient to be excluded for medical reasons. Furthermore, patients who cannot use other hyaluronic acid treatments because of the bird proteins they contain can receive Restylane injections without risk of allergic reaction. A very small portion of the population may experience an adverse reaction to the bacterial proteins in Restylane®, so patients with a history of such problems should avoid using the product.
culptra Aesthetic is not an overnight miracleand is not a quick fix. It is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time, replacing lost collagen. Sculptra gives you a more natural-looking appearance, without "giving you away." A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last more than two years.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds, that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
Sculptra Aesthetic is targeted for use in:
- Deep folds between the nose and the mouth, or, smile line
- Lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
- Chin lines
Sculptra may take several treatments, and results happen slowly over several months.
Juvederm Voluma is the latest of the Juvederm range of hyaluronic acid fillers specifically designed to restore volume in areas of volume loss. Common areas include the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. Additionally, due to its versatility it is also suitable for adding definition to the jaw line.
As we age, facial fat loss, gravity, and loss of the skins natural elasticity conspire to reverse this triangle's composition. This leads to a narrower, less youthful forehead and temple area, and a wider, heavier jaw line.
Juvederm Voluma can restore balance and heart-shaped proportions to the face by subtly adding volume to areas where this is lacking due to the effects of ageing or extreme weight loss. The result is a restoration of the 'triangle of youth' back to its original form, resulting in a softer and more youthful appearance. Juvederm Voluma and carefully placed Botox along the jaw and neck work as a necklift and they redefine the triangle of beauty.
Juvederm Voluma is frequently used to revolumise the cheek, cheekbones and chin. As the filler is placed deep within the tissues, it adds support to the overlying skin, and restores facial contours.
Clinical trials have shown that the volumising results of Juvederm Voluma can last up to 18 months. This can vary from individual to individual.
