Restylane and its new companion Perlane offer exceptional treatments for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, especially the nasolabial folds that stretch from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Restylane and Perlane replenish lost volume in the skin and restore youthful contours to the face by lifting and supporting tissues non-surgically. The outcome is a younger, smoother look with fewer lines and wrinkles. Results are immediate and long-lasting.
Q: What is the difference between Restylane and Perlane?
A: The gel particles in Perlane are larger than those in Restylane, making Perlane ideal for treating deeper folds in the skin.
Q: What areas can be treated with Restylane and Perlane?
A: Restylane and Perlane are FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe folds and wrinkles on the face. They are extremely effective in treating the nasolabial folds, the lines that stretch from the the nose to the sides of the mouth.
Q: How long do the effects of a Restylane or Perlane treatment last?
A: In general, the effects of Restylane treatments last six months, and the effects of Perlane treatments last at least six months. Results very by individual and depend on many factors, such as the patient’s lifestyle, age, structure of the skin.
Touch-up and follow-up treatments will make the improvements of Restylane and Perlane last longer. Most patients choose to have a touch-up treatment within six months to a year of the original injection(s).
Juvéderm injectable gels gently smooth wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose and restore a youthful volume to the face. They are especially effective on smile lines and “parentheses” (nasolabial folds) that run from the bottom of the nose to the sides of the mouth. Recently approved by the FDA, Juvéderm™ products are made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to provide volume and support to the skin. They come in three formulas optimized for the depth of the area being treated. Juvéderm™ Ultra and Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus use a more advanced, cross-linked formula for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles or folds in the mid- to deep dermis. Treatment takes only 15 minutes with immediate results and no downtime. Results typically last about 6-9 months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.

Sculptra is an injectable volumizing treatment that stimulates the formation of your body’s own collagen to smooth out lines and wrinkles and restore lost facial volume to give you a fuller, younger-looking face.

- Statistically significant increases in mean dermal thickness persisted throughout the 2-year study
- Clinically proven safe and well tolerated
- Biodegradable and biocompatible lactic acid polymer

Sculptra™ is injected below the surface of the skin using a very fine needle, in the area of fat loss, providing a gradual increase in skin thickness. After your treatment it may appear that Sculptra™ worked immediately because of swelling from the injections and the water used to dilute Sculptra™. In a few days, the swelling goes down and the water is absorbed by your body. Sculptra™ takes time to gradually correct the depression in your skin. It works by increasing the thickness of the skin and fills in what has been lost. We will see you again in a few weeks to decide if you need more Sculptra™ injections.
Results are gradual, depending on the type of results desired and the severity of the problem. Over time, the appearance is dramatically altered after multiple treatments. Once the desired look is achieved, this semi-permanent treatment lasts up to two years, but could require minor touch-ups.
Bellafill is a unique, injectable collagen filler with microspheres that can instantly smooth facial wrinkles (nasolabial folds) for beautiful, natural-looking correction that lasts.
Treatment with Bellafill is very similar to treatment with conventional fillers. Bellafill immediately adds volume to wrinkles known as smile lines for a smoother, more youthful appearance. In addition, Bellafill re-creates the firm structure of younger-looking skin by supporting production of your body’s own collagen. Bellafill® requires a skin test to identify those patients who may have an allergy to lidocaine or bovine collagen.
Bellafill is approved for the correction of:
- facial wrinkles known as nasolabial folds, or smile lines
- correction of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek
Q: How dose Bellafill work?
A: Bellaﬁll® works in two ways:
- The collagen provides immediate volume below facial wrinkles known as smile lines to lift them to the level of the surrounding skin.
- The PMMA microspheres create a matrix that supports your body’s own collagen production.
Bellafill offers a new level of filler rejuvenation. The collagen immediately adds volume to smooth away facial wrinkles known as smile lines, and the PMMA microspheres help your skin re-create its own firmer structure for beautiful, younger-looking skin and lasting results.
