Facial Fillers

Soften the signs of aging.


Cosmetic Fillers have added new dimensions to the field of cosmetic aesthetics, allowing new forms of facial rejuvenation and wrinkle treatment without surgery. Cosmetic Fillers are used to increase tissue volume (as with lip augmentation), reduce wrinkles, and improve skin’s overall contour. They are used to literally “fill” skin that has lost tissue volume. The new fillers are made of natural ingredients such as calcium and hyaluronic acid.

Juvederm® Voluma™ XC

Juvederm® Voluma™ XC injectable gel is the first and only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile.

Results from Juvederm® Voluma™ XC are instantaneous and generally last anywhere from one and a half to two years, so there’s really nothing else on the market that compares to its longevity without a need for additional treatments.

Juvederm® Voluma™ XC is injected under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill, the soft tissue of the dermis — the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis — to add volume and diminish wrinkles and folds. The injection process takes only about 15 minutes.

Juvederm® Voluma™ XC injectable gel is great for:
•  Laugh lines
•  Smile lines
•  Parentheses (nasolabial folds, the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth)

“Sculptra

Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years.* Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra® Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.1-3 Sculptra® Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart.

*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary.

Restylane®

Restylane® is an injectable gel. The hyaluronic acid is a tissue-friendly substance closely resembling the hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in the body. By replenishing nature’s supply of hyaluronic acid, it revitalizes and plumps up the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and giving a softer look.

Restylane® gels work under the skin using a fine needle by enhancing your skin’s own stocks of hyaluronic acid, directly adding volume to either soften the signs of aging or enhance your features. The procedure is quick. It usually takes less than 30 minutes. The benefits can be seen immediately.

Restylane® treatments:
•  Smooth out facial lines
•  Create fuller lips
•  Shape facial contours, such as cheeks and chin

Restylane Lyft

Restylane® Lyft is an FDA-approved dermal filler for implantation into the skin for the correction of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane® Lyft is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own hyaluronic acid, adding volume and fullness to the skin.

Restylane® Lyft differs from Restylane® primarily in the size of the particles and the depth of the required injection. Restylane® Lyft, used for deeper wrinkles, has larger particles that are injected deeper into the skin than Restylane®.
