Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (HA) which our bodies naturally produce to give volume to our skin and retain moisture. HA fillers hydrate the skin from within and replace lost volume due to the normal aging process. We carry dermal fillers from 4 different brands including the Juvederm line, Restylane line, Merz line, and Revanesse line.

Restylane FAQs

There are 4 major competing brands of dermal fillers with a lot of crossover between the products. Your provider will best explain the treatment plan and why they are using a specific product over another.

Neither filler is objectively superior, what is right for you depends on the individual’s aesthetic goals and anatomy. A consult is recommended to determine which filler would be the best to meet your needs.

Dependent on the product and the individual’s metabolism, majority of HA fillers last approximately 6 months up to 1 year. Some of the more robust fillers last up to 2 years.

Results are immediate, however there is initial swelling and potential bruising that we recommend to give 2 weeks to allow optimal healing.

No, when filler is placed strategically, you will look like yourself, just a few years younger.

Merz

From the maker of Xeomin, Merz Aesthetics also has 2 different products of filler.

  • Belotero is a hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler that smoothes out facial wrinkles and hydrates the surface of the skin to keep it looking refreshed. Belotero is a great choice for vertical lines above the lips and under eye hollows. Belotero is unique in that it does not create puffiness or Tyndall effect. (Tyndall effect is a bluish tone on the skin after receiving HA filler.)
  • Radiesse is a dermal filler that is made of Calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa). It provides great volume and lift that is desired for a contoured cheek, or a defined jawline. It’s composed of a biodegradable gel and calcium based microspheres which acts as a scaffold under the skin and stimulates collagen production for several months after being injected. This robust filler is commonly used for cheeks, chin, and jawline.
  • Hyperdilute Radiesse (HDR): When Radiesse is mixed with normal saline, it becomes purely a collagen stimulator. This is a great treatment for areas that don’t require a lot of volume but have lines and laxity such as the neck, décolleté, and hands.
  • Non surgical Brazilian Butt Lift – using HDR, we can create a perkier bottom, address skin laxity, improve the appearance of cellulite, and correct hip dips. We can also enhance your derrière over multiple sessions.

Sculptra

From the maker of Dysport, Sculptra is an FDA approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen. Collagen is the most common protein in the body to give your skin resiliency and fullness. Due to the natural aging process, and with certain medical conditions, collagen diminishes over time. Sculptra activates your body’s natural power to stimulate collagen production. This is typically used over the full face to combat collagen loss.

Sculptra FAQs

Sculptra consists of Poly-L-lactic Acid (PLLA), a synthetic polymer which has been used in the human body since 1960 and is used as medical suture material.

Sculptra is great for people who want a gradual natural result and have the timeline for it as it can take months before optimal results. Fillers on the other hand work immediately. Best treatment would be a combination of both, for short term and long term results.

Depending on your age and volume loss. The estimated amount of vials can be calculated by dividing your age by 10.

Depending on how many vials needed, we recommend not to exceed 2 vials for each session. Follow up treatments are ideally spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

You will start to notice improvement 4-6 weeks after your session, best results are seen 6 months after first session. They can last upwards of 2-3 years, however you may need a touch up once a year.
