Injectable Dermal Fillers
Radiesse® is a non-surgical facial contouring filler that delivers an immediate, longer-lasting result. Whether you’re longing to reverse the common signs of aging or address a health issue that otherwise would require an invasive treatment, you have more options in looking and feeling better with Radiesse®. Developed with safety and longevity in mind, Radiesse® is a new generation injectable filler that offers superior versatility for both cosmetic and reconstructive use without surgery. What sets Radiesse® apart from other dermal fillers? The answer is in its durability, longevity, and versatility. The unique composition of Radiesse® provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results. This is because Radiesse® is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. The microspheres (particles) form a scaffold through which your body’s own collagen grows, and this produces the desired long-term effect. These unique advantages make Radiesse® the ideal choice for facial shaping and contouring — along with other therapeutic applications.
Radiesse® has FDA clearance for the treatment of Oral/Maxillofacial Defects. Radiesse® is under investigational studies in the U.S. for the correction of Nasolabial Folds and is currently under Pre-Market Approval review by the FDA.
Juvederm® Ultra Plus
The newest hyaluronic acid product is Juvederm, another non-animal form of hyaluronic acid, which is currently undergoing FDA trials. It is currently marketed in Europe. Similar to Restylane, it is derived from bacterial fermentation and comes in several different particle sizes and varying viscosities.
Fat injections or liposculpture are performed using the patient’s own fat cells (autologous fat) taken from unwanted fat deposits. There are many variables in this treatment, including the way the fat is extracted, whether frozen or fresh fat is used, the area that is injected, the amount of fat that is used and how deeply the fat is injected. The fat is injected under the skin to treat hollow cheeks, to enhance lips or cheeks or to treat deep folds. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and can take from less than one hour to several hours. Some lumpiness can occur, in addition to injection-related reactions. The reported duration varies from a few months to several years.
