What is Juvederm ®?
Juvederm ® is an injectable gel implant consisting of hyaluronic acid, which is a complex sugar that is naturally produced in the body to supply elasticity to the skin. Hyaluronic acid will decrease with age, resulting in a loss of firmness in the skin. Juvederm ® will plump up and add volume to deep facial wrinkles and folds, giving the face a smoother and firmer appearance.
Benefits of Juvederm ®
Deep wrinkles in the skin can make a person look much older than they are. With Juvederm®, deeply entrenched creases and folds in the skin will be lifted up and filled out so that they will appear smoother. The injections will add volume to wrinkles and creases, thus making them less noticeable. The nasolabial folds, running from the nose down to the mouth, can especially benefit from Juvederm® injections. The patient will have a more youthful appearance after the treatment and will have more supple, firmer facial skin. Looking younger is a tremendous boost to self-confidence and self-esteem for the patient.
What is Radiesse?
With the passage of time, the production of natural collagen within the body will diminish, resulting in loss of elasticity and lack of firmness in the skin. Facial skin will begin to sag, creating wrinkles, lines and creases. As a result of lack of firmness and elasticity, a person will begin to look older. Radiesse is an injectable wrinkle filler that helps to stimulate the body to produce its own natural collagen. This increased production of collagen within the body will plump up wrinkles and give the face a firmer and more supple appearance.
Benefits of Radiesse
The cosmetic improvements in facial skin with a Radiesse treatment can reap great benefits for the patient. It is a wonderful boost to morale to see wrinkled, older-looking skin transformed to a youthful, firm and supple appearance. No one wants to look older than they are, and Radiesse can bring back a younger complexion by helping the body to produce more collagen to fill in wrinkles and firm up the skin.
What is Restylane?
Restylane was first created in Sweden, and then brought into the United States. It is the first long lasting hyaluronic acid filler and can last about 6 months. Because a molecule of Restylane closely resembles natural hyaluronic acid and because the hyaluronic acid in it is not derived from animals, Restylane procedures have a reduced risk of inflammatory or allergic reactions. The duration of this treatment depends on many factors, including skin type, lifestyle, age, the degree of perfection demanded by the patient, and the injection of the practitioner.
