Dermal Fillers (HA fillers, Radiesse)
Dermal Filler is a gel of hyaluronic acid (HA) generated by streptococcus species of bacteria, and chemically cross linked with a moisture-absorbing gel such as BDDE (1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether). When crosslinked HA and unreacted BDDE degrade, they break down into harmless byproducts that are identical to substances already found in the skin.[i] 
 
You may experience a slight burning sensation during injections, although numbing cream is always used to lessen this. The procedure (depending on areas treated) takes typically 20-40 minutes. Results last from 6 to 12 months for more "liquid" fillers such as Belotero and Restylane, and 18 to 24 months for more viscous (thicker) material such as Juvederm Voluma.
 
Fillers are a type of minimally invasive aesthetic medicine used to add volume, alter the contours of the face, and fill in wrinkles. Common areas to inject fillers are in the lips, face, neck, and even hands, resulting in a fuller, smoother and more youthful appearance:
  • Lip plumping and defining the vermilion border
  • Frown lines, such as vertical creases between the eyebrows
  • Infraorbital hollows (tear troughs)
  • Nasolabial folds, which extending from the bottom sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines which extend downward from the corners of the mouth
  • Thinner lines around the mouth
  • Lines on the chin
  • Hollow jaw line on each side of the chin
  • Nose irregularities
 
If you know you deserve aesthetic improvements in any of these areas listed above, call for a free consultation.
  • Restylane and Restylane Lyft are for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines). Restylane is also indicated for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21. 
  • Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler similar to Restylane that completely integrates into the skin tissue. Belotero Balance can correct facial wrinkles and folds and give volume to the face and lips exactly as the other leading hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers do. Moreover, its duration is equivalent to Juvéderm (Allergan) and Restylane (Galderma), two other leading HA filler products.[ii] Furthermore, BELOTERO BALANCE treats moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips.
Juvederm Voluma is the preferred HA filler to change the shape of your cheeks, nose, jaw angle, or chin.
