Dermal Fillers are injectable treatments that restore youthful volume and fullness to the face, plump deeper facial lines and folds and provide contour and definition to the face.
Over time, the effects of aging can take a toll on our appearance. Skin becomes thinner, loses its elasticity and is more prone to fine lines, wrinkles, creases and folds. Fortunately, we can restore a smoother, more youthful appearance with the use of dermal fillers, which are injected beneath the skin’s surface to fill depressed areas.
We offer a variety of hyaluronic acid based fillers and Radiesse that are tailored to achieve the most effective and affordable outcome.
Types Of Dermal Fillers
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Healthy, youthful skin contains two key compounds that diminish with the aging process — hyaluronic acid and collagen.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar compound found in the body. This acid helps maintain skin volume by attracting and binding water, giving the skin a smooth, plump appearance. However, with time, UV exposure and environmental factors, the hyaluronic acid in the skin diminishes and collagen breaks down causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear.
Injectable hyaluronic acid can temporarily replace this compound, restoring to the skin the volume and firmness it has lost.
At SpaGo Medical Spa, dermal filler treatments are performed our Medical Doctor.
Fillers may be added following your Laser Skin Rejuvenation.
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse smoothes facial lines, wrinkles, and deeper facial creases while stimulating the skin’s natural collagen production, creating a more youthful framework with added fullness. Results are immediate and can last a year or more.
Radiesse is composed of very small, smooth calcium hydroxylapitite microspheres, which are suspended in a water-based gel. Calcium hydroxylapitite is a mineral component that occurs naturally in the bones and teeth.
In the class of dermal fillers, Radiesse, an FDA-approved dermal and hand rejuvenation filler, is unique as it supplements the skin’s own depleted collagen and stimulates new collagen production in and around the treated area, which encourages longer-lasting results. Within a year of an initial Radiesse injection, the body absorbs the Radiesse and leaves in its place the body’s own naturally-formed collagen.
Radiesse Wrinkle Treatments Improve:
The Radiesse Procedure
Typically, Radiesse and Radiesse Plus treatments take 30 – 60 minutes, depending on the area treated. Using an ultra-fine needle, the dermal filler is injected below the surface of the skin to add volume to the skin. Our experienced expert injectors are trained in the most advanced injection techniques to achieve the most natural looking results.
How Many Radiesse Treatments Are Needed Before The Desired Result Is Achieved?
Many people achieve the desired result after just one treatment of Radiesse. However, because Radiesse is a longer-term dermal filler, the initial treatment is usually conservative with a follow-up visit for further refinement, if needed.
Are There Side Effects From Radiesse Wrinkle Treatments?
Side effects associated with Radiesse wrinkle treatments are minimal. They may include slight bleeding, pinkness, mild bruising or swelling near the injection site. Typically, these side effects dissipate within a few days.
Belotero Balance® Refining Facial Filler
Radiesse’s sister product, Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic, acid-based cohesive gel dermal filler that is FDA-approved for the correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Designed to deliver natural-looking results with little recovery time, Belotero integrates into skin, plumping and softening fine lines and wrinkles. Most commonly used as refining injectable filler, Belotero is used just below the surface of the skin to provide soft correction of more superficial wrinkles and lines of the face.
