Colleyville Dermatology Cosmetics provides dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, Radiesse, and Sculptra.
Most dermal fillers have a temporary effect, because they contain materials that are absorbed by the body over time. The FDA has approved only one product made from a material that remains in the body and is not absorbed. Some dermal fillers also contain lidocaine, which is intended to decrease pain or discomfort related to the injection.
Radiesse® (Injectable Filler)
Radiesse® is an FDA-approved, next-generation dermal filler that is setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. Made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, Radiesse is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure giving you immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and providing long-lasting and beautiful results. In many patients, the effects of Radiesse may last a year or more. Offering clinically proven safety and longevity, Radiesse is a convenient treatment that stimulates the body to produce new collagen – often with just one or two office visits. Get beautiful results and long-lasting wrinkle correction.
Restylane® and JuveDerm® (Injectable Fillers)
Restylane® and JuveDerm® are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to the skin. The most commonly “filled” areas include the nasolabial folds, lips, frown line, and hollows of the eyes. Acne scars may also do well with this type of filler. They are both composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural clear jelly like substance that already exists in the human body. Results can be expected to last from 6-12 months. There is mild bruising and swelling at the injection sites but makeup may be applied 4 hours after treatment. For lip volumizing, we perform a nerve block (dental block) so you do not feel any injections into the lips.
Kybella®: Colleyville Dermatology’s Cosmetic Dermatology provide Kybella® or deoxycholic acid injection that is a prescription medication that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat beneath the chin.
Sculptra® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems as a single regimen for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles in which deep dermal grid pattern (cross-hatch) injection technique is appropriate.
