Refill the volume you lose with the aging process with injectable dermal fillers!
There are many types of dermal fillers: Restylane, Restylane-L, Perlane, Perlane-L, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Sculptra, Radiesse
Dermal fillers are delivered by injections to restore your volume to the face or to plump up scars, marionette lines, laugh lines or lips and many other areas. They can help restore and maintain your youthful appearance with the passage of time.
The current FDA approved fillers contain one of 3 key ingrededients: hylauronic acid, calcium hydroxyapetite, and Poly-L-lactic acid. Dr. Omar Ibrahimi is a board certified dermatologist with advanced cosmetic fellowship training in filler injectables and vast experience with all three types of fillers.
Hylauronic Acid fillers are composed of natural sugar-based substances that bind to water and give the skin a natural plumpness. The sugar molecules attach to each other by chemical crosslinks to make smaller and larger size particles to target finer and deeper wrinkles. Hylauronic acid fillers are eventually dissolved by the bodys enzymes within 6-12 months.*
There are several brands of hylauronic acid fillers including:
Restylane, for fine lines and Perlane, for deeper lines. Restylane has recently shown to last up to 18 months in 97% of patients undergoing initial treatment and re-treatment 4-9 months later to the nasal labial folds.*
Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus are used to fill fine and deep wrinkles respectively. Juvederm is the only hylauronic acid filler that has been FDA approved to last up to 1 year after a single injection.
Calcium Hydroxylapetite (Radiesse)
Microspheres of calcium hydroxyl appetite can be used to correct deep wrinkles and folds. The skin creates a long lasting scaffolding around this substance, which gives improved appearance to wrinkles for up to a year. The filler Radiesse is the only product on the market containing calcium hydroxylapetite.
Poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra)
Poly-L-lactic acid found in Sculptra injections is a longer-lasting alternative for individuals with more significant volume loss. A series of injections performed over several months can help to restore a youthful appearance in those experiencing a loss of facial fat. Clinical studies have demonstrated results lasting up to 2 years.*
