What type of Dermal Filler is used?
Dermal fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid, a natural hydrating substance occurring in our bodies, of which we have abundance in our youth. As we age, the levels decrease depleting the skin’s support system, resulting is loss of volume which allows lines and wrinkles to occur.
There are many types of dermal filler. Your practitioner will select the best to suit each individual’s needs.
Juvéderm® ULTRA is a natural, biodegradable gel that flows easily into your skin, instantly filling out those troublesome lines, leaving a smooth and natural look and feel. There is an immediate difference after just one treatment and lasts longer than other formulas, at least 12 months due to the unique way they are made.
Juvéderm® ULTRA comes in three formulations for more natural-looking, adaptable results.
Juvéderm® ULTRA 2 erases moderate lines, especially those around the lips and corners of the eyes and those very close to the surface of the skin.
Juvederm® VOLUMA® is used to replenish the Hyaluronic Acid within the skin, which will restore lost volume to cheeks, cheekbones and chin, creating a more natural fuller, contoured youthful appearance. On average the effect lasts up to 12 months.
Restylane products are sterile gels consisting of non-animal stabilised Hyaluronic Acid injected into the skin to improve facial lines, wrinkles, folds, shaping facial contours and lip enhancement.
Hyaluronic Acid holds water, hydrating and giving volume to the skin. Since its launch in 1996 Restylane has been used safely in over 2 million treatments worldwide.
Restylane adds volume to your skin without effecting your natural expression. It is non-permanent and is absorbed naturally over time, so you can choose as to when to have further treatment to maintain the effect. It also allows flexibility as one or more areas of your face can be treated. On average the effect lasts 6 to 9 months.
Radiesse is a unique dermal filler made from synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a water based gel carrier. Once the product has been injected into the area it forms a scaffold to support and stimulate the production of the body's own collagen. The results are longer lasting, up to 12 months or longer in many patients.
