Cosmetic Dermal Fillers
Injectable fillers improve the appearance of aging skin. Fillers can smooth the cheek and eye areas, plump up thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles and improve the appearance of scars.
BELOTERO is an injectable filler that quickly integrates into your skin.¹ Once injected, it instantly smoothes the lines and wrinkles in your face.
While BELOTERO is made of the same material (hyaluronic acid) as some other dermal fillers, BELOTERO 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), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).
The first FDA-approved filler to correct age-related volume loss in the midface. It instantly adds volume to the cheek area in people over the age of 21. It helps enhance contour and create a more youthful profile for up to 2 years. (Individual results may vary.)
Juvederm Voluma XC is injected under the skin with a small needle. It works instantly to add volume and subtly lift the cheek area, temporarily reversing this sign of aging.
Obagi Blue Peel
Obagi Blue Peel is a mild chemical peel that works in conjunction with the Obagi Nu-Derm System to reverse the effects of aging, sun damage and other skin conditions and leave skin looking and feeling smooth, tight and fully restored. The Blue Peel treatment improves the appearance and health of your skin by removing dead skin cells and promoting the growth of new ones, leaving your skin brightened and revitalized. Patients interested in an Obagi Blue Peel are advised to use the Obagi Nu-Derm System, a full line of skincare products that helps improve the skin's natural renewal process. It is recommended that patients use these products for at least six weeks before undergoing the Blue Peel procedure, which helps prevent hyperpigmentation from occurring after the peel and prepares the skin to achieve the most effective results.
Restylane is an FDA-approved dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that restores volume to the skin, lifting and smoothing out wrinkles and other fine lines. This procedure is most commonly used to treat the glabellar lines (between the forehead) and the nasolabial folds. It can also be used to add volume and shape to the lips. Since Restylane is made from a natural substance found in the body, no pre-testing is required. Restylane produces results that last for several months through its unique ability to bind with water and remain in the skin. The results of this procedure are visible right away, and can last for several months, depending on the condition of the individual patient's skin.
Radiesse is a synthetic injectable filler that has been approved by the FDA to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by stimulating the natural production of collagen in the skin. This product is made of microspheres composed of calcium hydroxylapatite within a water-based gel and is made from minerals similar to what makes up our bones. Radiesse can be injected directly into the skin with no need for pre-testing. Radiesse is most effective in reducing the appearance of smile lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth. The results of this procedure are visible immediately after the injection and can last for up to a year or even longer. With continued treatment, patients will require fewer and fewer injections.
Sculptra is an injectable filler that restores facial fat lost by the effects of lipoatrophy, including sunken cheeks, hollow eyes and other indentations. This filler is injected below the surface of the skin in the areas of fat loss. The Sculptra injection consists of an alpha hydroxyl acid called poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA. This product is safe, synthetic, biocompatible, biodegradable and long-lasting. No pre-testing is required for Sculptra treatments. The results of Sculptra will appear gradually after the injection, with most patients able to achieve their desired results after just one treatment session. The length of the results can vary from patient to patient, but often last for up to two years.
Juvederm Ultra is a safe, effective gel that restores volume to the skin and smoothes away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is the first FDA-approved dermal filler proven safe and effective for persons of color. The Juvederm gel is made of hyaluronic acid with a smooth consistency, allowing for easy injections and instant, natural-looking results. There is no pre-testing needed for this procedure. Topical or injectable anesthesia may be used during this procedure to numb the treatment area and minimize any potential discomfort. The results of this procedure are available right away and can usually last for up to a year, the longest results available from any hyaluronic acid product.
