Dermal Fillers such as RADIESSE®, Restylane®, Perlane®, and JUVÉDERM® re-volumize and immediately enhance specific areas of your face, including smile lines, superficial lines, and lips. Fillers can also be used to contour the cheeks and jawline. JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Restylane® Silk, and Perlane® feature a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.
What Is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler proven to be safe and effective for persons of color. JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler that has been proven to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, most patients get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
JUVÉDERM® Voluma™ is the latest of the Juvederm range of hyaluronic acid fillers specifically designed to restore volume in areas of volume loss. Common areas include the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. Additionally, due to its versatility, it is also suitable for adding definition to the jawline. It stimulates collagen and has a long-lasting effect on up to 2.5 years.
What Is RADIESSE® and How Does It Work?
Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, flexibility, and strength. As part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume. This loss of elasticity and volume results in the wrinkles, facial lines, and skin laxity that rob skin of its youthful appearance. The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume.
With RADIESSE® wrinkle filler you can smooth out the signs of aging. That’s because this filler’s unique formulation stimulates collagenases – the production of new collagen – which results in increased volume for natural-looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients.
What Are Perlane® Dermal Fillers?
Perlane® is an FDA-approved dermal filler for implantation into the skin for the correction of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. Perlane® is generated by a Streptococcus species of bacteria. This filler differs from Restylane® primarily in the size of the particles and the depth of the required injection. Perlane®, used for more severe wrinkles, has larger particles that are injected deeper into the skin than Restylane®.
Perlane® is not approved for use in lip enhancement, but Restylane® can be used for this purpose in patients 21 years of age and older. Clinical studies showed no significant differences in the safety of Restylane® and Perlane®. Perlane® is comprised of biotechnologically engineered, non-immunologic, stabilized hyaluronic acid gel particles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms and provides volume and fullness to the skin. The three-dimensional gel particles in Perlane® are hydrophilic molecules, attracting and binding to water molecules as they degrade, helping to maintain volume augmentation for about six months.
Restylane® Silk is the first FDA–approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler to augment the lips.
