Facial / Dermal Fillers
Juvéderm™ Injectable Gel
How does Juvéderm™ work?
As you age, your skin changes. For example, it reduces production of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Over time, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles and folds, like those "parentheses" lines around your mouth. Juvéderm™ injectable gel replaces the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm™ injectable gel is indicated for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth. You can experience Juvéderm through a quick, in-office procedure. Dr. Choe will gently ease Juvéderm™ under your skin to instantly smooth out the wrinkles and folds on your face. You'll see the difference immediately!
What makes Juvéderm™ different?
While other HA fillers on the market have a more granular consistency, Juvéderm™ injectable gel is the first smooth-consistency HA gel. This is due to an innovative manufacturing process called HYLACROSS™ technology. HYLACROSS™ gives Juvéderm™ its unique smooth-gel properties as well as an optimal gel structure that holds up over time. That's why it is a breakthrough in HA dermal fillers! Juvéderm™ is the only HA filler that's FDA approved to last up to one year. When Juvéderm™ was tested in a clinical setting among people who didn't know which filler they were getting, nearly 90% stated a preference for Juvéderm™! In addition, Juvéderm™ has been tested on all skin phototypes, both male and female, so everyone can enjoy the benefits of this amazing wrinkle therapy.
Restylane® Injectable Gel
Instantly smooth away facial wrinkles with Restylane®. The Restylane® family of products can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and give you the lift you've been looking for. Treatment areas include laugh lines (nasolabial folds), the area that extends from the nose to the corners of the mouth; Marionette lines, the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jaw line; Lipstick lines, the area just below the nose and above the upper lip; and the corners of the mouth next to the crease of the lips.
Restylane® can also improve the shape and proportion of the lips with an aesthetically pleasing, natural-looking result that can be customized to your specific needs. In fact, Restylane® and Restylane-L® are the only FDA approved products for lip enhancement in patients over age 21 years. Reports have shown that Restylane® treatments can last up to six months.
Restylane® Silk, is the first and only FDA-approved filler designed specifically for the treatment of lips and the lines around them. Restylane® Silk’s unique, refined formulation is designed for precise lip shaping and for smoothing the lines around your mouth to create a natural look.
Perlane® is a member of the Restylane® family of products. Like Restylane® , Perlane® restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. What makes Perlane® different is the average size of the particles and the depth of the injection. On average, the gel particles in Perlane® are larger than those in Restylane®. This makes Perlane® a good choice for wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin. During your consultation, your surgeon will decide which product is right for you.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds, that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is not an overnight miracle. But it is long lasting! It is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time by replacing lost collagen. Sculptra® Aesthetic gives you a more natural-looking appearance, without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra® Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last more than two years, although individual results can vary. Sculptra® Aesthetic allows you more time to see how sensational subtle can be. Discover anti-age for the modern age.
