Botox™, Juvederm™, Restylane™, Radiesse™, and
Perlane®. With so many exciting, new fillers available, how do
you know which is best for you? Though there is some overlap in
their use, the various treatments have different indications and
actions. After a careful examination and discussion with you
regarding your goals and expectations, we can recommend which
best suits your needs.
Radiesse™, Juvederm™, Restylane™, and Perlane® are “fillers”—
similar to Collagen, but safer and longer-lasting. In the past,
fillers were only injected into facial creases and wrinkles,
resulting in a softened appearance of the wrinkles. More
recently, these longer- lasting fillers are being used
successfully for facial recontouring, to enhance the cheek,
chin, nose and jaw line, as well the usual nasal folds, corners
of the mouth and “lipstick lines.
Juvéderm® is likely a good option for you if
you are dissatisfied with the way your face is aging — namely,
if you dislike the wrinkles and creases that have surfaced.
Juvéderm® may also be right for you if you feel that your lips
Juvéderm® is appropriate for any area of the face, including
lines and creases around the mouth, nose, and forehead. The
procedure can be used for facial contouring as well as to
improve the appearance of scars, such as those caused by acne.
Juvéderm can also be used to enhance the size and shape of the
lips. All of these areas will show distinct improvement after
treatment with Juvéderm® filler.
