Radiesse is a calcium based dermal filler injected in sites where deep tissue folds or wrinkles may appear. Radiesse is considered a superior tissue filler which is remarkably effective in softening or erasing folds or deep wrinkles caused by volume loss. Radiesse induces a process called collagenases, stimulating your body to produce new collagen to form around the injected Radiesse. Radiesse is FDA approved and is proven to provide a more youthful and up lifting appearance with skilled injection techniques.
Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid based fillers. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the epidermis of our skin. These fillers restore volume and fullness for fine lines and lip enhancement. Both Juvederm and Restylane are an excellent treatment to decrease fine lines around the mouth and are FDA approved.
Botox and Xeomin are purified proteins, which relax the muscles that cause movement. This muscle movement causes manipulation of collagen to be moved repeatedly from a certain area and leads to lines (wrinkles) forming. These treatments are simple and performed by injection. The average amount of paralytic needed for treatment is 20 units per area. The most common areas treated are the glabella (frown), peri-orbital (eyes), frontalis (forehead) and perioral, (around the mouth). By forcing the muscle to relax in a certain area, the wrinkling appearance decreases significantly. Repeated use can continue to decrease fine lines and provide a maintained appearance.
