“Dermal fillers” are injectable substances that are the most popular and reliable ways to reduce facial wrinkles and increase lip and facial fullness. Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero and Perlane are the most versatile and can be used for lips, wrinkles, and facial rejuvenation. They are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally found in the skin. Radiesse is another filler that can be used to smooth wrinkles and fill in deeper areas for augmentation. Juvederm and the hyaluronic acids tend to last 6-12 months, while Radiesse typically lasts longer, 1-2 years.At Celebrity Laser Spa, we use only authentic FDA-approved fillers made by Allergan, Medicis and Merz Aesthetics.
Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used for:
- lip plumping – thin or aged lips can be filled for extra volume, poutiness or definition
- facial folds – nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (about the chin), smoker’s lines, others
- facial augmentation – cheekbones, under the eyes
- fine lines – Belotero is better able to fill fine lines and can be used for all of the above as well
Anesthetic is applied as a topical numbing cream and/or injected into the nerves that give sensation to the area being treated (nerve block), similar to getting a shot at the dentist. Another alternative is Juvederm Ultra XC or Restylane-L which contain lidocaine anesthetic as part of the filling materia, greatly improving comfort for minimal additional cost.
To minimize the risk of bruising, patients should not be on aspirin or other blood thinners prior to treatment. After treatment, there may be some bruising and swelling that lasts a few days, but often less. Bruising is somewhat more common when filler is used more superficially, such as when Belotero is used for fine lines.
Our aim is to meet your esthetic goals in lip augmentation or wrinkle correction, but to do so in a subtle and not overdone way. Your satisfaction is our priority. We urge you to come in for a free, no-obligation consultation to see if hyaluronic acid fillers are right for you.
Before & After Juvederm Treatment
Before & After Radiesse® Treatment
Radiesse® is another safe and effective injectable filler. It differs from hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm, in being made from calcium hydroxyapatite gel. This is another natural product but lasts significantly longer (typically over a year). It is used primarily for wrinkle filling and facial augmentation not including the lips. Radiesse is our preferred choice of fillers when trying to increase cheekbone prominence, enlarge the chin, smooth out bridge of the nose irregularities, or to provide very long-lasting wrinkle filling. It can even be used for hand rejuvenation. Since Radiesse is a natural product, it is not permanent and is gradually replaced by the body’s own collagen.
- Radiesse is made by Merz Aesthetics (the maker of Belotero) and is FDA-approved
- Lasts significantly longer than hyaluronic acid fillers or collagens
- Less risky then permanent fillers, such as acrylic beads
Anesthetic is applied as a topical numbing cream and/or injected into the nerves that give sensation to the area being treated (nerve block), similar to getting a shot at the dentist. Lidocaine can also be added directly into the Radiesse syringe to minimize discomfort.
To minimize the risk of bruising, patients should not be on aspirin or other blood thinners prior to treatment. After treatment, there may be some bruising and swelling that lasts up to a few days but often less. Radiesse lasts up to 1.5 years, but this can vary a little, depending on individual factors and location of injection.
Non-surgical facelift and augmentation
The supporting skeletal structure of your face is the most important aspect of your appearance. As the face ages, supporting structures may atrophy, causing a “tired” or “hollowed out” appeance. A long-lasting dermal filler, such as Radiesse, is a great fix for this problem! Cheekbones can be raised in prominence, a chin or nose that is irregular or not projecting enough can be better-defined with this treatment. Radiesse is a safe, fast and relatively inexpensive procedure that may obviate the need for a surgical intervention. If you are contemplating plastic surgery, such as a facelift or facial implants, consider Radiesse as a less invasive alternative in mild cases.
Microcannulas for injection
Microcannulas are a new injection technique for placing filler in deeper areas of the face without the use of needles. Blunt tipped micro-cannulas, as thin as needles, are used to minimize bruising, decrease discomfort and maintain a greater control over the depth of injection. If indicated, your clinician will inform you if a microcannula should be used.
