Dermal Fillers: The Restylane Family of Products, Belotero, and RadiesseWe carry three different cosmetic injectable product lines at Rejuvene Plastic Surgery, the Restylane family of products, Belotero, and Radiesse. Restylane and Belotero are hyaluronic acid-based fillers, and Radiesse is a collagen-stimulating filler. The hyaluronic-acid fillers contain a formula that includes synthetic hyaluronic acid particles, and Radiesse contains an active ingredient that induces collagen and elastin production. When injected just below the skin’s surface, they target volume loss by restoring natural fullness to the skin. Your body produces less hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen as you get older, which negatively impacts your skin. Facial structure and proportions can change due to volume loss, leading to hollow areas and less definition. With the right combination of injectables, we can reverse the signs of aging and contour and define different areas of the face.
RestylaneThe Restylane family of products is a versatile dermal filler collection that includes different filler formulations that can treat virtually any area of the face. The Restylane family of products includes eight different types of fillers that can add volume to areas of the mid and lower half of the face. These fillers can augment the lips, contour the cheeks, smooth smile lines around the mouth, eliminate facial folds and chin wrinkles, and even restore hand volume. You can use one or more formulations from this collection. Your results will last anywhere from six to eighteen months based on the filler formulation, the mobility of the treatment area, and the rate at which your body metabolizes the products.
BeloteroBelotero Balance is a dermal filler designed to smooth lines, wrinkles, and facial folds on the lower half of the face. Upon injection, this dermal filler can restore volume to treat and temporarily eliminate smile lines of different severity and smooth chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and even vertical lip lines in the delicate area around the mouth. Results are immediate, and you can expect to enjoy smooth, hydrated, wrinkle-free skin for approximately six months or longer based on how quickly your body metabolizes the product post-treatment.
RadiesseUnlike Belotero and the Restylane family of products, Radiesse is a collagen-stimulating filler. It is an FDA-approved injectable that can induce collagen and elastin production in the lower half of the face and hands with an active ingredient called CaHA. It’s an effective solution for those who want to naturally treat smile lines, pre-jowl folds, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, and the signs of aging at the corners of the mouth. It can also restore volume to the hands by stimulating increased collagen production as well as contour the jawline to create a more sculpted appearance. It delivers natural-looking results that appear immediately and continue to improve over time. Results can last up to a year or longer based on the treatment area and the patient.
What Are the Benefits of Using Injectable Fillers?There are many benefits to adding one or more injectable fillers to your anti-aging or cosmetic routine. When our expert injectors administer injectable fillers, you can rest assured that you will see the anti-aging effects and get natural-looking results. These dermal fillers will reverse volume loss and help you obtain a more youthful appearance.
Targeting Volume Loss.Volume loss is one of the telltale signs of aging. Your skin loses hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin as your body ages. This causes hollow areas to begin to form in different parts of the face, and the skin may even begin to sag and droop, leading to facial folds and wrinkles. All of these fillers reverse volume loss by restoring volume just below the skin’s surface to gently and subtly lift as well as plump the skin, increasing its water content and thereby reversing the signs of aging.
Delivering Anti-Aging ResultsThese cosmetic injectables also deliver anti-aging results. Immediately following your injection, you will look more youthful. You’ll see an immediate improvement in the hollow areas, lines, facial folds, and wrinkles that resulted from volume loss. You’ll look and feel more like your younger self again, not like a different person, and can benefit from all the anti-aging effects of these injectables we offer here at our office.
You Can Expect Natural-Looking ResultsYour dermal filler results are only as good as the injector administering them. If you’ve seen strangers, friends, co-workers, or celebrities with filler that’s highly noticeable, you’ve probably noticed how it makes them look unnatural and even older than they are. You should only trust an expert injectable injector to administer dermal fillers because this process is precise and requires experience, accuracy, skill, and an artistic eye. Our injectors understand the importance of delivering natural-looking results and will only administer as much filler as you need to correct your problem areas.
Choosing the Right InjectablesAll of the product lines we offer here at Rejuvene Plastic Surgery are designed to deliver natural-looking results and help address your areas of concern. If you’re unsure which filler is right for you but want to add one to your anti-aging or cosmetic routine, the first step in the treatment process is a consultation. One of our expert injectors will meet with you during your consultation to evaluate your area of concern in person. We’ll explain more about the treatment process and ask you some questions about your health history to determine whether a collagen-stimulating or hyaluronic acid-based filler is right for you. Then, we will recommend the best products to address your area of concern and design a unique treatment plan custom-tailored to your needs.
Improve Your Appearance and Combat Aging With FillersWhether you want to subtly enhance your features or reverse the signs of aging, we have dermal fillers from reputable lines that can target and treat your specific concern. You don’t have to rely on topical products to deliver anti-aging results. Instead, you can get the best of both worlds with a dermal filler that can deliver anti-aging benefits and address your problem areas immediately.
What Can Restylane Be Used For?
Restylane is not only one dermal filler. Restylane offers a family of dermal fillers that can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, add volume to your lips, and erase nasolabial creases and vertical lip lines. Each filler is unique in that it can be used independently or in combination with other dermal fillers or neuromodulators. In addition to the original Restylane filler, patients can choose from Restylane Silk for under the eyes, Restylane Lyft to plump the cheeks, and Restylane Refyne to plump your lips.
How Long Do Restylane Products Last?
The Restylane family of fillers can last between six months to one year or more. It depends on which product was used, the quantity, where it is injected, and even your metabolism.
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse is another type of dermal filler that is used for cosmetic purposes. Unlike Restylane, which is made of hyaluronic acid, Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite. Radiesse offers structural support with larger microspheres, which offers longer-lasting results. Radiesse is different in that it also stimulates collagen production while filling in lines and creases.
How Long Does Radiesse Last?
The results from Radiesse last between 12 to 18 months. As the microspheres break down and are metabolized by your body, the collagen that Radiesse helped to stimulate can extend the results of your Radiesse injections.
What Is Belotero, And How Long Does Belotero Last?
Belotero is another hyaluronic acid dermal filler that restores lost facial volume while filling in light lines around the mouth, chin, and nose. Results from Belotero last anywhere from eight months to one year. Because the molecules in Belotero are smaller, this filler produces natural-looking results without looking overfilled.
Are Dermal Filler Injections Painful?
In general, dermal filler injections are not painful. In addition to using a topical numbing cream, many fillers also include an anesthetic in the injection itself. Microcannulas can also be used to reduce discomfort, which can happen when injecting the lips or under the eye.
How Do I Choose the Right Filler?
When it comes to choosing the right dermal filler, you need to think about your aesthetic goals. Some patients want to restore lost facial volume, while others want to improve and eliminate deep lines and wrinkles. It is always best to consult with an experienced injector who can explain the differences between dermal fillers and help you choose the ones that are right for you.
