People in Michigan are very active and fit. But, there is one thing no one can escape no matter how hard you workout- aging. With normal aging, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling and squinting. Soft tissue fillers temporarily smooth these lines and folds, giving the face a more youthful appearance. They can also enhance the lips and cheeks. Soft-tissue fillers can be used alone or with other cosmetic procedures such as Fractional Ablation, IPL and Botox.
Procerus Skin Care offers the following fillers
- Radiesse (Volumizing filler)
- Belotero Balance (Fine line filler)
RADIESSE® — For Volume and Contours
The treatment of individual wrinkles is often not enough to restore a youthful and fresh appearance. In order to counter the effects of gravity and regain a younger shape, the face needs real volume. This can be achieved with a dermal filler which also re-stimulates natural collagen production for effective and lasting volume.
Thanks to a special gel-matrix, Radiesse® volumising filler creates immediately visible results. With its fine calcium microspheres Radiesse® volumising filler stimulates the body’s natural collagen formation to create long-lasting volume. The gel itself, as well as the microspheres, are completely broken down by the body over time. Radiesse® volumising filler puts volume back exactly where it was. With gentle volumising deeper wrinkles and hollow or sagging cheeks disappear, and the natural facial contours return.
RestylaneL is the only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved to last up to 18 months from initial treatment of moderate to severe nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth) when patients followed the Restylane Regimen—a treatment plan that helps you get the most out of your Restylane treatments. Restylane works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, and eventually breaks down naturally. By combining lidocaine with Restylane, Restylane-L can help reduce discomfort during and after treatment.
Perlane- L is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, adding volume and fullness to the skin. What makes Perlane different than Restylane is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection, which means it’s a good choice for more severe facial wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin. In three clinical studies, 63%, 71% and 75% of patients maintained improvement for six months after just one Perlane treatment. By combining lidocaine with Perlane, Perlane-L helps reduce discomfort during and after treatment.
