Juvéderm UltraPlus XC®
Juvéderm UltraPlus XC is an FDA-approved filler used to treat facial wrinkles and folds. It restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct deep facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm UltraPlus XC may be used in the nasolabial folds (creases starting from the nose and framing around the sides of the mouth), and also to plump lips that may have thinned due to aging or environmental factors (or simply lips that would benefit from a subtle enhancement). A dramatic yet natural looking result can now be achieved without surgery.
Juvéderm UltraPlus XC is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body. Filler injections are quick and results are immediate. The average results last approximately six to eight months.

Previously known as Radiance, Radiesse is a long lasting injectible implant. Due to it’s components and duration, Radiesse is more aptly referred to as an implant rather than a filler. It is used for soft tissue augmentation for correction of deep facial folds and creases and restoration of volume loss in hollow facial areas.
We have found Radiesse to be particularly well-suited for long-lasting correction of deep nasolabial folds. Results typically last 6 to 12 months. Radiesse consists of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in gel (carboxymethylcellulose). Because calcium hydroxylapatite is a normal constituent of bone, it should not elicit a chronic in® flammatory or immune response.
