Fillers: Restylane®, Juvederm®, Perlane®, Radiesse® and Sculptra®
Aging is a complex process that involves multiple and simultaneous changes. As we age, our skin becomes thinner, loses structural support from fat and bone underneath and no longer looks plump and smooth as it once did. Fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, Perlane®, Radiesse® and Sculptra® are used to restore the volume that is lost as an effect of aging and can be molded to lift and restore the facial contours and correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.
Since multiple products are available, your dermatologist will discuss with you all available treatment options and determine the most appropriate treatment for your individual needs, to achieve the best cosmetic results. No sedation or anesthesia is required since the products are already pre-mixed with local anesthetics. Discomfort is usually minimal; swelling and bruising may occur but they may be easily covered with makeup. The duration of the effect of treatment will vary depending on the product used.
