Injectable Fillers in Virginia Beach
Juvederm & Restylane®
Juvederm® and Restylane® are injectable gels used for the correction of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. As skin ages the production of hyaluronic acid (HA) diminishes. Juvederm® and Restylane® are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers contain a molecule that is common to all humans. Therefore, allergic reaction is extremely unlikely.
There are many ways to use hyaluronic fillers. It can be used to increase the fullness of areas of the face that characteristically “deflates” with age such as the cheeks and brows. It can also be used to fill hollowness beneath the eyes and correct dark circles. It is also used to add volume to lips. The only limitation is that in some areas, the fillers will only last only 6 to 12 months. During your consultation we will discuss with you which filler is the right option for you based on your own particular needs.
Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable fillers that reduces wrinkles, creases and scars by augmenting the body’s natural collagen supply. Composed of microspheres in a biocompatible gel, Radiesse® is made from the same minerals found in our bones, Radiesse® is most commonly used in the face on the nasolabial folds (areas to the sides of the nose), around the corners of the mouth and on depressed scars. Treatments require only topical anesthetic. Side effects such as swelling or bruising are minimal and should fade within a couple days. Results are visible immediately after the injection and can last a year to 15 months.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is not an overnight miracle; nor is it long lasting or intended to be a quick-fix beauty treatment. Sculptra® Aesthetic is the first facial injectable that gives subtle results over time, replacing lost collagen, and yielding a more natural-looking appearance.
A full treatment of Sculptra® Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can procude noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last for up to 2 years.*
It begins to work deep within the dermis, where your skin’s collagen structure is reinforced. Sculptra® Aesthetic helps to replace depleted collagen. A reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness to shallow or deep facial wrinkles and folds. Sculptra® Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles and folds. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last up to 2 years.*
Sculptra® Aesthetic is made from poly-L-lactic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid consists of a synthetic material, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body as it works to replace lost collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used safely for decades in dissolvable stitches and as a facial injectable since 1999 in over 30 countries.
