Injectable skin fillers have added new dimensions to the field of cosmetic dermatology, allowing new forms of facial rejuvenation and wrinkle treatment without surgery.
Injectable skin and wrinkle fillers are used to increase tissue volume (as with lip augmentation), reduce wrinkles, and improve skin’s overall contour.

Restylane is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Restylane has a highly favorable safety profile. It is composed of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the human body. Restylane is fully biocompatible. There is limited risk of animal-based disease transmission or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins. No allergy testing is required before use.
Restylane maintains its shape using the body's own moisture. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is hydrophilic or "water loving." As hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide long-lasting results.
Unlike rooster-derived hyaluronic acids and bovine collagen products, Restylane is free from animal proteins. This limits any risk of animal-based disease transmissions or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins.

A next generation filler for long lasting wrinkle correction.
Radiesse not only fills but it volumizes as it works with your body to stimulate new collagen production. Tiny calcium-based microspheres help build a scaffold or lattice to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen producing a natural, long-lasting youthful appearance.
Radiesse can be used in the naso-labial folds around your mouth, in the “11’s” between the eyebrows, in the cheeks and it works especially well in smoothing out the lower face. The results are immediate and it may last a year or more in many patients. It has proven to be very safe after thousands of clinical studies around the world.
Radiesse is FDA approved to safely correct moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles and gives beautiful results with a natural look and feel.
Perlane & Perlane-L
Just like Restylane®, Perlane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own hyaluronic acid, adding volume and fullness to the skin.
What makes Perlane different than Restylane is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection, which means it's a good choice for more severe facial wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin.
If you want a more youthful appearance, but you’re concerned about the potential discomfort from treatment, you can get beautiful results and a more comfortablePerlane experience. By combining lidocaine with Perlane, Perlane-L helps reduce discomfort during and after treatment.
In clinical studies evaluating the Restylane family of products in laugh lines (nasolabial folds):
95% of patients reported significantly less pain during treatment with Perlane-Lvs. Perlane
Patients continued to experience less discomfort for up to one hour after treatment
Perlane and Perlane-L are not approved for use in lip enhancement. Perlane-L should not be used by anyone with a known allergy to lidocaine.
