Restylane & Radiesse
Radiesse in Newport Beach
Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing the volume and elasticity of the skin. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, lines, sagging and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance. Ideal reduction of these changes is often achieved by replenishing your skin’s lost volume. That can be done in a number of ways, one of which is dermal fillers.
RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is different than the other dermal fillers on the market today in its composition. It immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. RADIESSE Volumizing Filler acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE. Treatment with RADIESSE is quick, comfortable and convenient, with immediately visible, long-lasting results, often up to 18 months. There may be minor bruising and swelling at the injection sites but an individual treatment can last a year or more for many patients.* Of note, Radiesse is the only FDA approved filler for use in the dorsum of hands for a less wrinkled or boney-appearance and younger-appearing hands. Dr. Katie is an expert at injecting Radiesse into the dorsal surfaces of hands.
Restylane® For Moderate to Severe Facial Wrinkles and Folds
Restylane® is a clear gel of hyaluronic acid particles that are specifically formulated to act like your own body’s naturally produced hyaluronic acid. By being cross-linked to the body’s own hyaluronic acid, Restylane® is used to add volume and to correct/smooth the appearance of moderate to severe facial folds, lines and wrinkles with little or no side effects. Restylane in Newport Beach is also FDA approved for correction of nasolabial folds and for adding lift and fullness to the lips (lip enhancement). With several varieties of Restylane now available such as Restylane Silk and Perlane, these are excellent products for use on marionette lines (from the mouth to the chin) and for other areas around the mouth as well as the lips.
Hyaluronic acid holds 1,000 times its weight in water molecules so the enhancement gives immediate volume, lift and smoothing. Restylane® maintains its properties for several months, up to 1 year. Depending on the depth of the wrinkles and lines, 1 or more syringes may be used to achieve an ideal correction.*
Restylane-L® has lidocaine added to the gel to make the injection more comfortable. It is well tolerated in most men and women but should not be used if there is any allergy or history of reaction to Restylane®, lidocaine or any of the other hyaluronic acid fillers.
Possible side effects can include bruising, swelling, redness or tenderness. If any of these should occur, they usually resolve within a few days.
