As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the firstFDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
Touted as the “next generation” of facial fillers, Juvederm™ injectable gels gently smooth wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose and restore a youthful volume to the face. Made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to provide volume and support to the skin, Juvederm® is especially effective on smile lines and “parentheses” (nasolabial folds) that run from the bottom of the nose to the sides of the mouth. Treatment takes only 15 minutes with immediate results and no downtime. Results typically last about 6-9 months.
Radience (or Radiesse) and Sculptra are longer-lasting in many cases, but not permanent. They tend to last from 1- 2 years.
Bellafill and Artefill, are permanent filler that were recently approved by the FDA. Many patients get tired of frequent return visits for re-injection and will be thrilled to have a permanent solution. However, because the permanence, greater skill and training are required for its injection and a skin test must be done prior, to rule out allergic reaction.
Below is a list of fillers the surgeons at Selarom use and more detailed information.
Restylane® / Perlane®/Restylane Silk®
Approved by the FDA, Restylane® is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. Restylane® is a clear transparent gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body. This acid is not of animal or human origin, which means that there is no risk of allergic reaction. The most common areas for a Restylane® treatment are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows) and the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth). With its unique ability to bind with water, Restylane® remains in your skin for 1-2 years. Just like Restylane®, Perlane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyalauronic acid, adding volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane Silk® is designed specifically to provide natural looking results to the lip area. That’s why it is made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products for more superficial wrinkles and fine lines.
