Injectables: Facial Fillers
The application of any facial filler is as much an art as it is science. The choice of filler also depends on the skin type and desired look of the patient.
Hylaronic Acid Gel, such as Restylane™ Juvederm™ and Hylaform™, is injected as filler for attenuating deep skin folds and wrinkles, and for soft tissue augmentation such as lip plumping. Hylaronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that gives soft tissue its bulk and "feel". Restylane™ is a synthetic substance, with a very low risk of causing allergic reactions. Hylaform™ and Juvaderm™ are extracted and purified from biologic sources. Both materials are gradually reabsorbed, with a cosmetic result that can last up to a year.
RADIESSE® consists of tiny calcium-based microspheres that form a "scaffold" to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen. Over time, the calcium-based microspheres gradually break down and are safely and naturally absorbed by your body. RADIESSE® rebuilds your skin's foundation without the risks associated with a permanent implant. Results can last up to 18 months.
