Craving a youthful glow?
Injectable cosmetic fillers are a popular alternative to face lifts and other surgeries that aim to give patients tighter, younger-looking skin. SmoothMed uses various injectables to reduce surface wrinkles and give skin a smoother, firmer appearance.
Using injectables such as collagen, Juvederm® or Restylane®, our doctors carefully inject a filler under the surface of the skin, causing fine lines and wrinkles to fill in and firm up the outer layer of skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections diminish fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles to reveal smoother skin with less visible lines. The doctors at SmoothMed also use injectables and fillers for lip augmentation. If you would like to learn more about the injectables used at our office and the results you can expect, contact us today.
Perlane is made from from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) gel. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in skin and other tissue, there is no need for a skin test when using a filler. The difference between Restylane and Perlane is that the molecule in Perlane is 4x larger, so it takes the body longer to break the product down. Perlane is placed deeper in the dermis and has the ability to fill folds with less material. Perlane typically lasts 6-12 months.
Restylane is the first and only cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based hyluronic acid. Hyluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide moisture and fullness to the skin. The hyluronic acid in Restylane is a crystal clear gel called NASHATM, a Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid, NASHA is biodegradable and completely biocompatable with human hyloranic acid. Studies have shown that the average Restylane treatment results last between six and nine months, and in some cases, even longer.
The active ingredient in Juvederm dermal filler, hylauronic acid, is naturally occurring, biodegradable complex sugar found in the human body and in all living organisms. Among other things, hylauronic acid hydrates the skin and adds volume contributing to the overall appearance to the skin. Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm UltraPlus can last up to one year.
Juvederm Ultra: $750.00
Juvederm UltraPlus: $750.00
Radiesse is used to fill moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds-the creases that extend from the corner of your mouth. Radiesse will not correct the underlying causes. Once injected, Radiesse immediately adds fullness to your face giving you a visible result at the first treatment session. Radiesse contains microspheres made of a natural material called Calcium Hydroxlapatite in a water based gel carrier.
HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS OF RADIESSE LAST?
Although treatment effects will differ for each person, in a clinical study, Radiesse lasted up to 1 year.
Radiesse: $1200.00 (1.5cc)
Radiesse: $800 (0.8cc)
Radiesse: $350 (0.3cc)
What It Does
Sculptra® is an injectable product that restores and corrects the signs of facial fat loss by replacing lost volume. Sculptra® provides an increase in skin thickness, helping to create a more natural facial appearance in those with facial lipoatrophy.
Sculptra® is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material. Sculptra® is not made from human or animal sources and does not require a skin test. Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is a biocompatible (does not harm the body), biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body) material that has been widely used for many years in surgical products. The effects are long-lasting; they were shown in a clinical study to last for up to 2 years after the first treatment session.
