Fillers improve the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds by adding volume and fullness to your skin for an immediate effect. They are a popular non surgical way to lessen the signs of aging and help to lift your skin naturally. Using the latest in technology, we are able to perform this procedure painlessly, without the need for injectable numbing medication. We offer Belotero®, Radiesse® as well as multiple varieties of Juvederm® including the newest filler on the market Juvederm Voluma. Recently approved for use in the midface, it will provide the definition to your cheeks you have always wanted. Currently, we are the only local office to offer this great new product.
Belotero and the Juvederm products are composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found in our skin naturally (but one that lessens as we age) causing a decrease in our skin volume and hydration. These reversible injectables replenish our stores of hyaluronic acid, providing fullness and elasticity back to our skin. Because hyaluronic acid is inherent in each of us, the filler material is gradually absorbed into the body over time.
Radiesse contains synthetic material called calcium hydroxyapatite that is suspended in a gel carrier. Your body will degrade and metabolize this product over a much longer period of time than the hyaluronic acid fillers. During this time, this semi permanent injectable stimulates collagen formation itself, contributing to improved viscosity and elasticity of your skin, leading to a more youthful appearance.
