Soft tissue fillers create volume that restores the youthful contour of your skin, erasing signs of sun-damage or age, including the fine lines and wrinkles that are a concern to both women and men. Procedures are done with little discomfort, results are immediate, and your rejuvenated appearance can last from months to years depending on the filler agent used.
There are many excellent filler agents available in our Miami dermatology office, including Restylane, Perlane, Juvéderm, Radiesse, Belatero, and Sculptra. They soften fine lines, create fuller, plumper lips, and correct contour defects with a simple injection. We select the ones that will give you the best, longest lasting results for your particular skin type and the level of correction you need.
Restylane uses a stabilized hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid. Restylane restores volume and fullness to the skin, correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Restylane is proven to provide results that can last up to 12 months. Repeated treatments stimulate your body to create your own collagen giving lasting results. No allergy testing is required. Restylane treats facial wrinkles and folds, including:
- Laugh lines (nasolabial folds)
- Marionette lines
- Lipstick lines
- Corners of the mouth
- Sunken temples and cheeks
- Nasal contouring
- Ear lobes
Juvéderm injectable gel is a smooth gel filler composed of hyaluronic acid that is eased under your skin to instantly smooth out the wrinkles or folds that look like parentheses along the side of your nose and mouth. Depending on your skin’s needs, we use either Juvéderm Ultra, which is optimally formulated for versatility in contouring and volumizing wrinkles and folds, or Juvéderm Ultra Plus, a robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper wrinkles and folds. Results may last at least 8 months after a single treatment. No allergy testing is required.
Get immediate lifting of cheeks and jowls with Voluma, a new, more robust hyaluronic acid filler. Voluma is safe, non-allergenic, and can be used with other fillers. Artfully placed along the bone, it restores facial volume loss for a more youthful and refreshed look. Consider Voluma for instant results that can last up to two years.
Belotero is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler which can be used for more superficial lines as well as deeper lines and folds. It is specially processed so that it does not show through skin when used for very superficial lines. It is a great filler for around the eye area and those tiny lines around the mouth.
Radiesse is comprised of calcium-hydroxylapatite (CaHA) micro-spheres. The advantage of this filler is in its ability to stimulate your body to produce its own natural collagen. It instantly corrects facial wrinkles to give you a natural, younger look that can last a year or more. It is a robust filler ideal for building facial contours like cheekbones and chins. Recently approved by the FDA for hand augmentation, it also reduces the appearance of tendons and veins in the hands, making them look smoother and rejuvenated. No allergy testing is required.
Sculptra is a synthetic material that is injected below the surface of the skin to stimulate your body to create more collagen and to gradually thicken the skin, filling in areas of facial fat loss to restore a more youthful round contour. Sculptra is a non-allergic material (poly-l-lactic acid) and is biodegradable. Areas of fat loss are gradually corrected with a series of injections (usually 2-3) spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Rounder cheeks, temples, and even fuller hands can be achieved with injections of Sculptra. Results are beautiful, natural and can last up to two years.
