As you age, your skin changes. It reduces production of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). As the years pass by, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm™ injectable is a replacement for the HA your skin has lost, it replenishes its volume and smoothes away facial wrinkles and folds. While other HA fillers on the market have a more granular consistency, Juvéderm™ injectible gel is a smooth-consistency HA gel. The HYLACROSS technology used in Juvederm gives its unique smooth-gel properties as well as an optimal gel structure that is maintained over time. That’s why Juvéderm™ injectable gel is the only HA filler FDA approved to last up to a year. Wrinkle correction with Juvéderm™ is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results and no downtime. Bruising or bleeding are unusual but happen on occasion without any sequelae.
Radiesse® is a more dense dermal filler for added support and structure to restore facial volume and take care of moderate to severe folds and wrinkles in order to restore a youthful appearance. This filler lasts to a year or even more, and stimulates the growth of new collagen. Treatment results are immediate with little to no down time.
Radiesse is a safe, FDA-approved dermal filler that restores a natural, long lasting, youthful look. It is made of unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin through a simple, safe and minimally invasive procedure. Tiny calcium-based microspheres form a “scaffold” to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen. Over time, the calcium-based microspheres gradually break down and are safely and naturally absorbed by your body. Radiesse can restore facial volume for the youthful look you want.
Radiesse is injected into the skin through a simple, safe, convenient procedure. Normal, injection-related reactions, such as mild irritation, swelling, itching, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site may occur. These conditions typically resolve on their own.
