Correct Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen Loss
Juvéderm® is one of the newest, yet most commonly used dermal fillers today. Made from hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm® will effectively address the fine lines and wrinkles that occur with the aging process. Juvéderm® can also replace lost facial volume. By binding to water molecules, Juvéderm® will restore a healthy volume and fullness to the skin. Instantly after treatment with these dermal fillers, patients will see smoother, contoured features, and a more youthful appearance.
Juvéderm® can dramatically improve:
- Fine Lines
- Deep Facial Creases
- Nasolabial Folds
- Marionette Lines
- Volume Loss in Cheeks and Across Jawline
There are two formulas of the hyaluronic acid based Juvéderm® available: Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC. Each of these dermal fillers has a unique consistency and is designed to meet a variety of different aesthetic needs. Premixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, Juvéderm® injections are not considered painful. Results from these dermal fillers can be seen right away and enjoyed for six to nine months. For longer-lasting results, Dr. Davidson recommends the layering method: During the first visit, one to two syringes of the desired dermal fillers are placed in the targeted area. A month later, another syringe will be applied. Over the following months, as lines or wrinkles begin to reappear, touch ups with Juvéderm® are quick and easy.

Perlane® is in the family of dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid (HA). Perlane® will trigger the body’s natural production of collagen, a vital building block of healthy skin. The injectable can restore healthy contours to the cheeks and jaw.
Perlane® can improve the look of:
- Nasolabial Folds
- Lip Lines
- Scars From Acne
- Diminishing Facial Volume
- Thinning Lips
Treatments with Perlane® take less than an hour. While these dermal fillers not painful, a local anesthetic may be used prior to treatment for added comfort. The results from Perlane® are immediately noticeable, and will remain for up to one year. Patients are comfortable returning to work or school the same afternoon as their treatment.
Radiesse® is one of the thick dermal fillers, comprised of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA). Its density makes it great for adding volume and improving facial contours, and its tiny calcium microspheres will bind with existing tissues, creating a sturdy foundation for the lower layers of skin.
Radiesse® is perfect for:
- Creating Prominent Cheekbones
- Smoothing Deep Facial Lines and Folds
- Providing Contour to the Jawline
- Improving Facial Symmetry
Often, a local anesthetic will be placed prior to treatment, to keep patients comfortable during injections of their dermal fillers. Each session will take less than an hour from start to finish. The beautiful results from Radiesse® can be appreciated instantly. Tissues will be contoured, and facial lines smoothed for 18 to 24 months.
Restylane®, one of the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, is designed for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles. Made from a smooth, biodegradable gel, Restylane® plumps tissues in a smooth and consistent manner. These dermal fillers are not only excellent for improving the look of lines and creases; Restylane® can also eliminate acne scars and replace a natural decrease in facial volume.
Restylane® will instantly:
- Even Deep Facial Lines
- Smooth Acne Scarring
- Plump the Lips
- Restore Facial Volume
- Correct “Hollow” Areas Under the Eyes
A topical or local anesthetic is often used before injections with Restylane®, to increase patient comfort. While there is no downtime necessary after injections of these hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers, it is important that patients to not rub the treatment area for the first 72 hours, so as not to disperse the filler to the surrounding tissues. The results can last for up to six months, after which time a repeat Restylane® treatment will be required to continue the beautiful results
Sculptra® is different from other dermal fillers; it is comprised of Poly-L-Lactic Acid. The injectable is known as a bio-stimulator, with an unmatched ability to replace the tissue’s collagen stores. Collagen, which provides structure to healthy skin, can be depleted over time by sun damage, illness, and the normal aging process. Sculptra® is injected into the subcutaneous fat layer of the skin. It can provide long-term relief from shallow lines and wrinkles, and also replaces lost facial volume.
Sculptra® will dramatically enhance the appearance of:
- Hollow Cheekbones
- Sunken Temples
- Thin Chin
- Boney Jawline
Sculptra® is comprised of tiny crystals held in a suspension. Although immediate plumping effects can be seen with Sculptra®, these may appear to fade over the first few weeks. This is normal, but as the crystals set and take effect, optimum tissue plumping and smoothing can be seen. The full benefits from these dermal fillers take between three to four weeks to appear. Patients will need to commit to three Sculptra®® sessions, spaced about four weeks apart, to receive optimum results. The results from will last up to two years.
