Restylane™, Radiesse®, and Juvederm® are our most popular wrinkle fillers.

Juvederm

Juvederm is developed through an advanced manufacturing process that results in a smooth gel that creates a natural feel. Juvederm also boasts the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid (produced by the body naturally) with a smoother feel compared to other dermal fillers on the market.

Juvederm is mainly used in facial lines such as the nasolabial folds, smile lines, and lip lines to promote a fuller appearance.

Results for Juvederm last for one year after a single treatment with minor side effects common to injections such as temporary bruising, swelling, and numbness, which go down after a few days.

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane, is similar to Restylane but it contains a higher amount of hyaluronic acid which makes it more effective for deeper wrinkles and folds while providing lifting effects.
