For adults who want a natural look, these prescription injections are proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. This procedure should be performed by a medical doctor who will treat the forehead, glabellar (area between eyebrows) and crows feet (smile lines around the eyes). Both products last up to 3-4 months. Untreated muscles still work normally so you can continue to express feelings naturally. The lines will disappear, not your expressions.
Juvederm XC is an injectable gel used for the correction of moderate facial wrinkles and folds such as the nasolabia folds. Also used for injection into the lips for lip augmentation. Juvederm can last up to 12 - 14 months and should be injected only by a trained medical doctor.
Voluma XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin's surface to lift and contour the cheek area. Over time, the cheeks flatten and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume or what we call age-related midface volume loss. Voluma XC can last up to 2 years and a syringe per cheek is the minimal recommended treatment.
Radiesse is a dermal filler used to correct severe facial wrinkles and folds such as the nasolabia fold and marionette lines. Just like the face, hands reveal aging by loss of volume which leaves the skin looking thin. Radiesse is FDA approved in the correction of volume loss to the back of the hands. Radiesse can last up to 12 months.
Visible facial aging is due to a loss of collagen. Sculptra works with your body, deep within the dermis, to help revitalize the production of collagen and helps to restore your skin's inner structure and volume. A few treatments of Sculptra injected into the face, an average of 3 injectable sessions over a few months, can last for more than two years. Sculptra is unlike any other injectable filler whereas the results are not immediate but will gradually produce a softer, fuller, younger looking face and will restore and revitalize the texture of the skin.
Restylane is another hyaluronic filler used to reduce moderate wrinkles and lines. This is the one product safe enough to be injected in the tear trough to reduce the look of "tired eyes" by filling in the dark circles under the eye. Restylane is also used in the lips for lip augmentation and should last up to 9 months.
