Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse and Botox
Injectibles and Facial Fillers offer a very attractive approach to facial rejuvenation for the thirty something and older crowds. Weather we are talking in terms of the 1 million women and men who use Botox for the forehead, eyes and lips, or the advantages provided by newer gel like moldable fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse for the nasal to mouth area, facial fillers are in the mainstream for many Americans today. At our practice, Dr. Kapoor of Beverly Hills has refined his injection technique to bring his patients the most desirable instantaneous results through a broad range of choices, including Botox, Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse.
Advantages of Injectible Fillers
Active lines, creases and folds are caused by contractions of the muscle in an affected facial area and may be treated with Botox. Resting lines, facial depressions, scarring, and areas requiring volume respond to facial fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane, as follows:
Botox: Botox may be used for the forehead, select lines under the eyes, and the lips to improve lip lines. The Botox ingredient used to release muscle contractions causing lines is Botulinum Toxin Type A. Botox has withstood a long standing reputation for use in facial rejuvenation.
Juvederm: Juvederm uses hyaluronic acid which naturally occurs and diminishes in the body at time of aging. Juvederm is comprised of a biocompatible gel like form of hyaluronic acid. Juvederm improves the appearance of lines on the face that are at rest and the lips. Juvederm is also offered in two concentration levels, one for deep lines and one for less expressive lines.
Radiesse: Radiesse is designed to address the deepest creases and skin folds of the nose to mouth and lip to chin lined areas. It may also be used to create fullness in the lips and cheeks as well as enhance other features of the face. Radiesse is an injectible gel that contains a mineral type Hydroxylapatite substance which is derived from human bone.
Restylane: Restylane is comprised of hyaluronic acid suspended in gel to improve nasiofold lines. In addition, Restylane adds fullness to the lips and other depressed facial areas.
