JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel
JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel is a smooth consistency gel filler from the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance which occurs naturally in the body and adds volume and hydration to the skin, JUVÉDERM is an excellent option for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, particularly nasolabial folds and marionette lines in the lower face. JUVÉDERM comes in two different formulations – JUVÉDERM Ultra and JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus. JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus is a more concentrated formulation, well-suited for correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. Results from JUVÉDERM can last up to 1 year.
Restylane and Perlane
Restylane and Perlane are two different formulations of the same hyaluronic acid filler, which replace the volume that skin has lost over time. Restylane is used to fill in smile lines, lip lines, hollows under the eyes, and forehead wrinkles, and is particularly well suited for lip augmentation. Perlane is composed of larger gel particles and is intended for injection deeper into the skin for more severe creases and folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines around the jaw. Results from Restylane and Perlane typically last 6 months or longer.
RADIESSE is a formulation of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a gel carrier, which provides both immediate and continuing results. RADIESSE stimulates production of the body's own natural collagen for results that may last up to a year or more in some people. RADIESSE is used to fill out the hollows of the cheeks and deep folds in the face, contour the jaw line, and correct downward turning of the corners of the mouth. RADIESSE is referred to as a "semi-permanent" filler, creating results that can last from 9 to 14 months and may require touch-up treatments.
Sculptra Aesthetic is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic substance which is biocompatible and biodegradable. Dr. Spence uses Sculptra to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds in the lower face. This product stimulates the growth of new collagen to replaced collagen that has become depleted over time. The new collagen restores volume to the treated area. The benefits appear gradually during the months following your treatment. For optimal results, Dr. Spence usually performs an average of three injection sessions over a few months. Studies indicate that Sculptra results can last up to two years.
Recovery & Results
Injectable fillers are often referred to as "lunchtime procedures" for a reason you'll love: you can visit us for your treatment on your lunch hour – and return to work right after! In some cases, you might notice some mild redness that lasts a few hours. Discomfort generally ranges from none to minimal, and typically can be managed with acetaminophen.
Your benefits will depend on the filler used and area targeted. For example, with Sculptra, you'll notice that as the lost collagen is restored, your face will look smoother and revitalized. With other fillers, you will experience the benefits within days after your appointment. Whether your concern is focused on deep creases and facial folds or thin lips, Dr. Spence's skills will be apparent in your enhanced appearance.
