Radiesse©, Restylane©, Perlane©, Juvaderm© Juvaderm Voluma™ XC
Radiesse©, a product that is newly available in the U.S. and FDA approved for medical purposes, is also being used cosmetically to fill deep lines and creases. It is a creamy synthetic form of calcium hydroxyapatite and lasts up to 2 years longer than anything currently available. Unlike collagen, it does not require pre-testing and results are immediate.
Restylane© is a gel injected into the skin to enhance its appearance. It has been proven safe, very effective, and may last up to six months. No pre-testing is required because these substances contain no known allergen or animal proteins. Treatments produce immediate results.
Perlane© is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) gel. This means that Perlane© contains no animal products. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin and other tissue, there is no need for a skin test when using Perlane© filler.
The hyaluronic acid in Perlane© supplements the body's natural supply, which becomes depleted with age. Perlane© is biodegradable so its effects are not permanent. The results of a Perlane® filler treatment tend to last six months to a year. Perlane© can be used in conjunction with BOTOX© Cosmetic, which neutralizes the muscles that create wrinkles, but Perlane® simply reduces the visibility of wrinkles and folds.

Juvéderm© is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm© injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is for patients over the age of 21.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is injected under the skin with a small needle. It works instantly to add volume and subtly lift the cheek area, temporarily reversing this sign of aging. To reduce pain during the procedure, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC contains a numbing agent called lidocaine. The more youthful profile you can achieve from the procedure lasts up to 2 years with optimal treatment.

Sculptra™ is an injectable product that restores and corrects the signs of facial fat loss by replacing lost volume. Sculptra™ provides an increase in skin thickness, helping to create a more natural facial appearance in those with facial lipoatrophy, or the need for fat replacement. Sculptra™ is not made from human or animal sources and does not require a skin test. The effects are long-lasting; they were shown in a clinical study to last for up to 2 years (after the first treatment session). Multiple sessions are required.
