What is it?
Dermal fillers restore volume to your skin, smooth wrinkles and folds and provide support for a more youthful appearance.
How does it work?
As we age, our skin loses elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid, leading to wrinkles and loss of structural volume.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) based fillers like Restylane® and Juvéderm® are formatted to mimic your body's own naturally present hyaluronic acid. This allows for normal facial expressions and movement, since the product integrates within the skin.
Sculptra Aesthetic® consists of poly-L-lactic acid and is administered to restore volume and correct folds and wrinkles by regenerating collagen. Results last approximately 25 months.
Radiesse® is a calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa) based filler that provides volume and support while stimulating natural collagen production by your own body. It lasts approximately one year.
What should I expect?
Results are seen immediately, but it can take a full two weeks to see the final results. Dermal fillers can last up to a year or longer depending on various factors.
