Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvéderm®, Juvederm Ultra Plus®, and Radiesse® are all members of the Restylane family of products and are being used routinely to help reverse the changes associated with aging. Each is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to instantly, visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds or add fullness to your lips. As you age, sun damage and other factors can reduce the amount of HA (hyaluronic acid) in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume — creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds, like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. The goal is to return the dermis to its original youthful state. Dermal fillers can give a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts and are being used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace soft-tissue volume loss. When scheduling your appointment make sure your calendar allows for the possibility of swelling for 3-5 days (especially the first treatment).

Expression®

Expression® is considered a third generation hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler. Like other HA dermal fillers, Expression is a smooth gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in the human body.
Expression is unique in that it is the first HA to be produced with a pathogen free medium, Bacillus Subtilis,
and uses a water-based process, free of organic solvents such as ethanol, and without the use of animal derived materials. Expression by Enhancement Medical, was developed by some of the original creators of the injectable Radiesse, which has been used as a dermal filler for many years. Over the last decade, hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar, has become a favored anti-aging, cosmetic injection dermal filler, used for replenishing areas of the face and lips where the skin’s volume and fullness has diminished with aging.

Radiesse®

The best solution for erasing lines and folds is to replace lost structure with immediate volume. RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler works immediately so the results are instant. Once injected, RADIESSE Volumizing Filler adds the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging. What makes RADIESSE truly unique is the ability of the product to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. The production of natural collagen continues for several months, which extends beyond the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which means more value from each treatment and long-lasting results.

Sculptra®

Provides gradual results that can last up to 2 years* Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is a facial injectable that works gradually in a series of treatments — on average, 3 injection sessions over a few months — for a subtle, more youthful looking appearance.
