The most common areas for Restylane treatment are the glabellar lines (which run between the eyebrows) and the nasolabial folds (which run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth). Restylane® injectable gel is also FDA-approved, for those 21 and older, for enhancing the lips. According to manufacturer Medicis, results can last for up to 6 months, at which point the hyaluronic acid is reabsorbed by the body.
Radiesse® is a safe, next generation cosmetic dermal filler that lasts longer than the former leading filler.

We have Voluma XC, which is probably our most popular filler because it lasts two years. I like it because it doesn’t cause a lot of swelling. It, basically, is what it is and lasts a long time. You don’t have to worry about walking out the door and, two weeks later, coming back twice as big. It’s ideally suited for cheeks and that’s been the new augmentation for this this year is filling the cheeks back up to where they were when you were younger.
Beletero is an excellent filler that is very thin and wispy, It can be used in several areas but where it shines in my hands is when I use it for “icing on the cake,” that is for the fine lines and superficial crevices of the face.
Sculptra® Aesthetic injectable is used to reverse the signs of facial fat loss that occur with aging. By restoring collagen, which decreases as the body ages, it fills out shallow-to-deep wrinkles and folds that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). It is not appropriate for use in the eye and lip areas.
To me, the y lift procedure is the most revolutionary procedure since botox was invented. It is 10 years ahead of other filler techniques in its results. There are only several dozen people in the nation trained in its techniques and I am lucky to be one of them.
