As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat and other tissues with a resultant loss of facial volume. This leads to hollowing of the cheeks and temples, sagging of the skin and our smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. Dermal fillers can be used to volumize the face, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, plump thin lips and improve the appearance of recessed scars. We use a full range of hyaluronic acid fillers including Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm “Voluma,™” Restylane, Perlane and Radiesse. Juvederm Voluma XC injectable, is the newest member of the hyaluronic acid family used to add volume to the cheeks and cheekbones and is sometimes referred to as the “liquid facelift.”
Sculptra® Aesthetic (poly-L-lactic acid) is the first injectable filler to stimulate new collagen production and give you a very natural and youthful volumizing effect. Sculptra® is injected over three to four sessions about four to six weeks apart. Areas most commonly treated are the mid-to-lower face, chin and temples.
Radiesse is FDA-Approved for Hand Rejuvenation to correct volume loss in the back of hands. Radiesse restores volume to the hand while providing smooth, natural-looking results that can be seen immediately and can last up to 1 year. Check out this video to learn more!
