Soft Tissue Fillers
Do you desire fewer wrinkles or restored volume to areas of your face with age-related volume loss?
The Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons at Associates in Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery incorporate the latest technologically-advanced facial fillers and injectable gel treatments, including JUVÉDERM® XC, Perlane®, RADIESSE®, Sculptra®, Restylane-L® and BOTOX® Cosmetic.
BOTOX® Cosmetic remains the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States due to its safety record and performance. It is actually a purified version of bacterial product that causes little muscles to become paralyzed when injected. Once the muscles stop moving, the overlying skin stops wrinkling
Dysport® is an injectable wrinkle treatment similar to BOTOX. Its chemical nature causes it to spread out a bit more, making it a great option for forehead wrinkle reduction, but not as good for treatment of smile lines or frown lines
Fat Transfer involves removal of your own adipose tissue and re-injecting into another area in an effort to reduce or eliminate wrinkles and other skin imperfections. This procedure has applicability on a small scale, such as with the correction of scarring, and on a larger scale, such as with fat transfers for breast reconstruction, breast augmentation and other soft tissue treatments.
JUVÉDERM® XC Injectable Gel is a hyaluronic acid facial filler that can be used to augment lips or fill wrinkles on the face. It is sometimes used to lessen the lines between nose and corner of the mouth, known as the nasolabial fold. This product is infused with lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC Another hyaluronic acid filler from the JUVÉDERM family, VOLUMA XC restores volume to the cheeks that is lost as we age. Combined with lidocaine for patient comfort, VOLUMA XC treatments take just a few minutes, and results can last 2 years.
Perlane® is a hyaluronic acid gel filler similar to Restylane. However, it has a larger particle size so it’s often used to fill in deeper wrinkles and folds. There is a very low risk of allergy to this injectable because it is synthetically derived, not animal derived.
RADIESSE® is comprised of calcium hydroxylapitite microspheres in a natural, water-based gel. The chemical structure creates improvements that can last for a year or longer, giving you more time to enjoy your newly enhanced appearance.
Restylane-L® is a hyaluronic acid gel that can be used to enhance lessen or eliminate wrinkles. It is often used to augment lips or other soft tissue areas. The new formula contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, providing almost immediate pain relief during treatment. Since this product is synthetic and not derived from an animal material, as collagen was, patients have very low risk of allergy to this injectable.
Sculptra® Aesthetic can restore fat loss in the facial region, improving or correcting associated wrinkles. The product is injected beneath the skin surface, providing gradual increase in skin thickness that can last up to several years.
