Restylane

Restylane®

As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity and smoothness.Restylane® smooths wrinkles, sculpts lips and shapes facial contours. It is a clear, synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance that is found throughout your body. It carries little risk of allergic reaction. The most common areas for treatment are the lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) and the lines from the nose to the angle of your mouth (nasolabial folds).

What areas can be treated?

Restylane® can also be used in other moderate to severe facial wrinkles such as lipstick lines which are above the upper lip to just below the nose; the corners of the mouth; and marionette lines which extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.

Restylane® treatment

Restylane® treatment can be performed almost immediately. It usually takes under 20 minutes depending on the type of correction you want. You will be able to see the results as soon as your treatment is completed.

What are the possible side effects of treatment with Restylane® ?

After your treatment, you might have some swelling, redness,pain, bruising, or tenderness. This will normally last less than seven days.

Restylane® Silk

For a silky, smooth natural-looking smile.

Designed specifically for lips and the lines around them

Restylane Silk is specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around
the mouth in patients over 21 years of age.

How does Restylane Silk work?

Just like the other members of the Restylane family, Restylane Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid which is a sugar that is naturally present in your skin.

What makes Restylane Silk different from other Restylane products?

As we age, the lips and skin surrounding the mouth often show signs of aging. Lips start thinning, losing shape and vertical lines above the lip increase.
Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these areas using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane products.

Restylane Lyft

What Is Restylane Lyft?

As we age and our faces lose volume, some of us begin to look for non-surgical ways to regain more definition in our cheeks.
Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®,is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss by lifting the cheeks and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).

How does Restylane Lyft Work?

Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, loss of volume and more prominent wrinkles. Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area to regain a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.

Belotero

What is BELOTERO BALANCE®?

BELOTERO BALANCE is an injectable filler that is used to smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles on your face.1 Upon injection, it quickly and evenly integrates into your skin.

What is the difference between BELOTERO BALANCE and other fillers?

BELOTERO BALANCE is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler designed to integrate into facial skin tissue. The unique manufacturing process for BELOTERO BALANCE yields a soft and cohesive gel that, once injected, instantly fills the skin to help smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles.4,5 While the product is versatile enough to handle moderate nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), it may be an ideal option for treating delicate areas such as etched-in smile lines and vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above and around the lips).

How soon can I expect results?

Immediately upon treatment, BELOTERO BALANCE helps smooth etched-in lines and wrinkles, such as vertical lip lines above and around your lips.

How long does it last?

Individual results may vary, but BELOTERO BALANCE may last about 6 months or more.5 Some factors that affect how long it lasts are the amount of product used and the area it is injected into. In areas that experience a lot of movement due to eating, talking, and smiling, the product may not last as long as other less active areas.

How much do I need?

Just as wrinkles and folds vary from face to face, so does the amount of BELOTERO BALANCE needed per treatment.1 It’s very individual—it depends on the amount of correction desired, the number of areas to be treated, and other factors. Your healthcare provider can better estimate once you have a consultation about your individual needs.

Are there any side effects?

BELOTERO BALANCE is FDA approved and has undergone testing in a clinical study to demonstrate its safety. Hyaluronic acid products for wrinkle correction have been available for a long time and used in thousands of treatments.

Just like any injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve on their own. If any of these side effects persist for more than 7 days, contact your healthcare provider immediately.

How long is the recovery time?

There is very little to no downtime associated with a BELOTERO BALANCE treatment. In fact, most patients return to their normal, daily activities right after their visit. Every patient is unique, so be sure to discuss your plans during a consultation with your healthcare provider.

RADIESSE®

RADIESSE®

In this day and age, most of us are familiar with the importance of collagen. It’s what gives your young skin its full, supple appearance. And when it breaks down, you may begin to see skin laxity and facial wrinkles.

When the collagen goes away, it takes facial volume and elasticity with it, leaving you with a face that may look older than how you feel inside.

If you aren’t ready to grow old gracefully, treatment with RADIESSE® wrinkle filler can bring back your own natural collagen and restore facial volume, with results that may last a year or more in many patients.

What is RADIESSE® dermal filler used for?

RADIESSE® dermal filler is used to fill moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds—the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth. RADIESSE® filler will not correct the underlying causes.

How long do treatment effects last?

Although treatment effects will differ for each person, in a clinical study, RADIESSE® dermal filler lasted up to six months.

What are the possible side effects of treatment with RADIESSE® dermal filler?

Talk to your doctor about the possible side effects of RADIESSE® dermal filler. The most common side effects are redness, bruising, or swelling. These side effects generally last for a short time and are mild in nature. As with all procedures that involve an injection through the skin, there is a risk of infection. However, no infections have been reported in the clinical study of RADIESSE® filler. Report any side effects you may experience to your doctor.

What can I expect after treatment?

Immediately following a treatment session with RADIESSE® dermal filler redness, bruising or swelling may occur in the treatment area. These signs usually go away in a short period and are generally mild in nature. An ice pack may be applied to the treatment area to help reduce swelling. Your health care provider will give you specific post-treatment care instructions.

For approximately 24 hours after treatment:

  • Avoid significant movement or massage of the treated area.
  • Do not apply makeup.
  • Avoid extensive sun or heat exposure.

After you leave the office, you may experience redness, bruising or swelling for a few days. Not all patients experience these, but please note that such effects can occur and are not out of the ordinary for such a treatment.

You may be able to feel the area where RADIESSE® dermal filler was injected for some period after injection. Over time, the injected area will feel more and more like your own tissue.

Sculptra®

Sculptra®

Sculptra® Aesthetic is the first facial injectable that can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly. It replaces lost collagen to give you a more natural looking appearance without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra® Aesthetic, on average, three injection sessions over a few months, can last up to two years.

How does Sculptra® work?

Sculptra® is injected below the surface of the skin in areas of fat loss, in many cases related to aging and sun damage. It provides a gradual increase in skin thickness. Visible results are seen within the first few treatments.

Sculptra® will not correct the underlying cause of the facial fat loss, but will help improve the appearance by increasing skin thickness in the treated area.

What parts of the face does Sculptra® Aesthetic treat?

Sculptra® Aesthetic is used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds which are treated with the appropriate injection technique.

Sculptra® Aesthetic is suitable for:

  • Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines
  • The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)
  • Chin wrinkles

How many treatments are required?

Your doctor will decide the appropriate number of treatment sessions and the amount of Sculptra® you will need at each session. Patients with severe facial fat loss may require 3 to 6 treatment sessions.

Are the results from Sculptra® Aesthetic immediate?

No. Because Sculptra® Aesthetic targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging, it can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last for up to 2 years.

Some visible improvements can be seen within the first few weeks of treatment, but the Sculptra Aesthetic regimen is designed to deliver its unique effects over the course of a few months. Typically, an average of 3 treatment sessions over a period of a few months – and because results happen gradually, you’ll see subtle yet noticeable results in the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds.

What are the possible side effects of treatment with Sculptra® Aesthetic?

ide effects of Sculptra® Aesthetic may include injection site pain, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching, or swelling. Other side effects may include small bumps under the skin that are sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. Larger lumps, with or without inflammation, have also been reported.

Other side effects may include the delayed development of non-visible, small bumps under the skin sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area.
