Aging skin is a continuous natural process which we all go through. Aging skin can start as early as our mid 20’s. There are two important substances that make up healthy and youthful looking skin: collagen and hyaluronic acid. Over time, collagen and hyaluronic acid diminish. As a result your skin loses structure and volume causing wrinkles and fine lines to become visible.

There are many factors that contribute to the speed of this process such as heredity, smoking and sun exposure. While you cannot stop the aging process, scientific research gives rise to new anti-aging treatment options.

Facial Fillers can be used to treat: deep wrinkles, frown lines, smile lines, vertical lip lines, marionette lines, hollowed cheeks, declining lip volume and acne scars.

Juvéderm™ is a dermal filler used for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm™ is a non-animal based smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating smooth, natural looks. Clinically-proven to last up to 6 months or longer for naturally looking results. Juvéderm™ is formulated with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid available. Juvéderm™ can get some amazing results when administered by an experienced medical professional.

Restylane® is a natural beauty lift with the body’s own material. Restylane is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin. Also will last 6 months and longer.

Perlane ® is designed for deeper facial wrinkles; it contains hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal-clear gel. Perlane is injected into the skin to lift the lip, wrinkle or fold, creating volume and resulting in a youthful more natural appearance. Perlane is not extracted from animals. This means no risk of allergic reaction. Therefore, Perlane is perfectly safe to use without pre-testing. Perlane has up to twice the longevity of standard collagen implant treatments.

Radiesse®  is a safe FDA approved advanced calcium based cosmetic dermal filler that lasts longer than the former leading filler for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles. Radiesse restores a natural, youthful look with fewer injections with immediate results. Numerous medical studies have shown that Radiesse stimulates your skin to produce new collagen, is safe and a longer lasting treatment to fill and correct smile lines, nasolabial
folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.

Facial Filler treatments are relatively simple, and usually take only 30 minutes. A numbing cream is applied, and with a few accurately placed injections, wrinkles are smoothed out. Side effects are temporary and may include redness, swelling, pain, firmness, lumps, and/or bruising. Exposure of the treated area to excessive sun and extreme cold weather should be avoided until any initial swelling and redness have resolved.
