Fillers and Injectables
Juvéderm® Injectable Gel
Juvéderm® Injectable Gel is a safe, effective gel that restores volume to the skin and smoothes away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm® is the first FDA-approved dermal filler proven safe and effective for persons of color. The Juvéderm® gel is made of hyaluronic acid with a smooth consistency, allowing for easy injections and instant, natural-looking results. There is no pre-testing needed for this procedure.
Topical or injectable anesthesia may be used during this procedure to numb the treatment area and minimize any potential discomfort. The results of this procedure are available right away and can usually last for up to a year, the longest results available from any hyaluronic acid product.
Perlane® is an injectable filler used to soften wrinkles and reduce the appearance of lines and folds for patients unhappy with the effects of aging on their skin. Perlane can be used for lines around the lips, mouth, nose and forehead, and is especially effective for the nasolabial folds, which stretch from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Perlane® is made of hyaluronic acid, as is Restylane®, but contains larger gel particles that can more effectively fill deep depressions on the skin.
Perlane® injections typically take 30 to 45 minutes to perform, and are administered with a topical anesthetic. Patients can return to regular activities immediately after injections, with no downtime. Results are visible right away and can last for six to eight months, depending on the individual patient’s age, skin condition, and various other factors. Touch-up injections once or twice a year are recommended to maintain results.
Perlane® is a safe procedure, but there are risks associated with any procedure. Some patients may experience swelling, redness, bruising and discomfort after treatment, but these side effects usually subside within a few days. Although rare, Perlane® carries a risk of infection, bleeding or allergic reaction. Choosing a qualified physician for your Perlane® treatment in New Jersey can greatly minimize the occurrence of complications.
Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that has been FDA-approved to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by stimulating the natural production of collagen in the skin. This product is made of microspheres composed of calcium hydroxylapatite within a water-based gel and is made from minerals similar to what makes up our bones. Radiesse® can be injected directly into the skin with no need for pre-testing.
Radiesse® is most effective in reducing the appearance of smile lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth. The results of this procedure are visible immediately after the injection and can last for up to a year or even longer. With continued treatment, patients will require fewer and fewer injections.
Restylane® is an FDA-approved dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that restores volume to the skin, lifting and smoothing out wrinkles and other fine lines. This procedure is most commonly used to treat the glabellar lines, between the forehead and the nasolabial folds. It can also be used to add volume and shape to the lips.
Since Restylane® is made from a natural substance found in the body, no pre-testing is required. Restylane® produces results that last for several months through its unique ability to bind with water and remain in the skin. The results of this procedure are visible immediately, and can last for several months, depending on the condition of the individual patient’s skin.
Sculptra® is an injectable filler that restores facial fat lost by the effects of Lipoatrophy, including sunken cheeks, hollow eyes and other indentations. This filler is injected below the surface of the skin in the areas of fat loss. The Sculptra® injection consists of an alpha hydroxyl acid called poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA. This product is safe, synthetic, biocompatible, biodegradable and long-lasting. No pre-testing is required for Sculptra® treatments in NJ.
The results of Sculptra® will appear gradually after the injection, with most patients able to achieve their desired results after just one treatment session. The length of the results can vary from patient to patient, but often last for up to two years.
