Facial Wrinkle Fillers Bloomfield
Facial wrinkle fillers are used when natural aging and lifestyle factors diminish the natural collagen layer that supports the skin. And where collagen diminishes, unwelcome lines and wrinkle may appear. Facial wrinkle fillers are also used for correcting prominent nasolabial folds, cheek elevation, enlargement of lips, and elevation of acne scars. Treatment results are immediate and typically last three to twelve months, depending on the area being treated and which type of facial wrinkle filler is used. Without ongoing treatments, the facial wrinkle filler is gradually absorbed by the body and your face returns to its original contours. There are several types of facial wrinkle fillers including Restylane®, Radiesse™, Juvederm™ Ultra Plus, Perlane®, Prevelle™.and Sculptra.
The facial wrinkle fillers offer these important advantages:
- Immediate treatment – no pre-treatment skin test required!
- Treatment and recovery usually take less than one hour.
- Treatment results typically last three to twelve months, and longer with Radiesse.
Restylane® and Perlane® restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. They are both composed of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid (a natural substance that already exists in the human body). Perlane® has larger gel particles and is intended to be injected deeper within the skin. The treatment results last an average of six to twelve months.
Sculptra is not used to correct specific lines on the face, but rather to restore volume and fullness lost during the aging process. This filler generally requires three treatments, four to eight weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Sculptra is composed of Poly-L-Lactic Acid, a synthetic, biocompatible synthetic substance widely used in dissolvable sutures and soft tissue implants. Treatment results last typically two or more years.
Radiesse™ is used in correcting prominent nasolabial folds, cheek elevation, enlargement of lips, and elevation of acne scars. It is comprised of smooth, 40 micron spheres of synthetic calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa) suspended in gel with sodium carboxymethylcellulose media. Because CaHa is normal constituent of bone, Radiesse™ should not elicit an immune response. Therefore, skin testing as used with collagen, is unnecessary. CaHa is not a new material in human prosthetic implants. It has been used in both dental and orthopedic reconstruction, augmentation of the cheek and lips, and acting as substrate for bone growth. Studies in soft tissue have shown the material remains soft, without the creation of cartilage or bone.
The material is injected after a local anesthetic is administered. There is some swelling and potential bruising similar to collagen injections. The advantages over collagen are lack of allergic reaction and longevity.
The treatment results last on average 1 year.
JUVÉDERM™ Ultra Plus injectable gel is a smooth consistency hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It is used to fill moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. The treatment results last approximately six months.
Belotero Balance® injectable gel is a prescription injection that is used to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds as well as other moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles around your lips and mouth.
Clinically proven safe and effective, Belotero Balance Helps smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in facial lines and wrinkles, feels natural to the touch, maintains normal movement and facial expressions and is a quick, easy treatment that provides immediate, noticeable results. Requires little to no downtime.
Individual results may vary, but Belotero Balance may last about 4-6 months or more. Some factors that affect how long it lasts are the amount of product used and the area it is injected into. In areas that experience a lot of movement due to eating, talking, and smiling, the product may not last as long as other less active areas.
Restylane® Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds). The treatment results last an average of six to twelve months.
