Facial Fillers Q & A

What are facial fillers?

At Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center, the practitioners offer the Restylane® and Radiesse® lines of dermal fillers.

Restylane products contain hyaluronic acid, a compound produced naturally by your body. When you’re younger, your body makes generous amounts of hyaluronic acid, but as you age, the production decreases. 

Restylane restores hyaluronic acid to different areas of your face. The fillers add volume and hydration to smooth lines and wrinkles and provide a youthful plumpness. The effects are so dramatic and transformative, it’s like you’ve had a liquid facelift.

Radiesse is a filler that contains calcium hydroxylapatite, a synthetic compound found naturally in your bones and teeth. The trained team injects the gel into treatment areas so that the microspheres create a structure that looks just like your own connective tissue and boosts your facial skin’s structure and volume. 

Your body absorbs these microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite over time, but the collagen that has developed around them remains to maintain your youthful look.

How are facial fillers applied?

The staff at Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center uses very fine needles to apply the fillers to predetermined areas of your face. The professionals are skilled in determining the precise locations and types of injections to get you the look that meets your cosmetic goals.

Facial filler application may be combined with wrinkle reducers, such as Xeomin®, Botox®, and Dysport® to give you the best results.

Your whole appointment lasts about 30 minutes, and your results are evident immediately.

Where is Radiesse most effective?

Radiesse effectively corrects moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. It stimulates your body’s natural collagen production to address issues like:

  • Smile lines
  • Frown lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Cheek enhancement
  • Lip augmentation
  • Hand rejuvenation
  • Chin reshaping

The effects of Radiesse can last up to two years.

What facial flaws can Restylane correct?

Restylane is an excellent solution for thin lips and eye hollows, as well as:

  • Marionette lines, those pesky lines that go down the sides of the mouth
  • Laugh lines, a loss of volume between the mouth and cheeks
  • Forehead furrows, the deep grooves caused by repeated expressions
  • Frown lines, the creases in the forehead between the brows

You’ll notice results right away, and they continue to soften and develop over the course of a week following treatment. You’ll notice up to an 80% reduction in lines and wrinkles. The transformation lasts up to one year, after which you can return for a repeat treatment.
