Dermal fillers are injectables that erase the signs of aging
(fine lines and wrinkles) and restore volume loss that occurs with aging.
They can also be used to create high cheekbones and fuller, plumper lips.
Results are instantaneous and normal activity can be resumed immediately. Longevity depends on type of dermal filler used. In order to maintain best results, touch ups may be done after the first four months. All dermal fillers used by Livia contain no animal products and therefore require no allergy test prior
DERMAL FILLERS MADE OF HYALURONIC ACID
Some dermal fillers are made of Hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural ingredient found in our bodies. They have ther ability to add volume and hydrate skin. Hyaluronic dermal fillers like Belotero, Restylane, Silk, Juvederm and Voluma were created to fill wrinkles and provide volume that was lost with aging or accidents.
Belotero® is a HA derived dermal filler. A unique characteristic of Belotero enables it to address fine lines. Because Belotero is thin and light, it can be injected superficially without the risk of lumpiness appearing on the skin’s surface. Belotero is great to address tear trough (under eyes) and fine lines around the mouth “smoke lines.” Results can last up to 6 months.
Restylane ® is a HA based dermal filler with molecular consistency slightly thicker than Belotero. Because it is still thin enough, it can be used to treat fine lines. It is also suitable to treat moderate lines all over the face.
Restylane Silk is newly FDA approved HA filler for lip contouring and augmentation and fine lines around the mouth, such as “smoker” lines. Results can last up to 6 month.
Juvederm is a HA dermal fillers with moderate size molecules. It is great for full lips, nasal labial fold and marionette line augmentations. Results lasts up to 6 months.
Voluma is a HA derived filler with high viscosity making it ideal for mid-face argumentation. It can be used to enhance cheekbones. Results last up to 2 years.
DERMAL FILLERS MADE OF CALCIUM: RADIESSE FOR CHEEKBONE, CHIN AND JAW CONTOURING
Radiesse is made up of calcium particles (Calcium Hydroxylapatite) that are naturally found in bone and teeth. Radiesse replenishes lost volume and stimulates collagen production.
The Viscosity of Radiesse makes it an ideal filler for adding volume to large areas. It is a great product to augment the cheeks, enhance the chin and contour the jawline. When used for cheeks augmentations, the result is a healthy looking, contoured appearance common in more youthful cheeks.
Radiesse™ has also been used very effectively to augment a weak chin instead of undergoing a chin implant. The result is a smoother, firmer chin that complements your other facial features.
Additionally, as skin loses elasticity over time and gravity pulls facial muscles downward, the jaw line is one of the most common facial areas where aging becomes apparent. Radiesse is an excellent choice to re-shape and contour the jaw line. The result is a smoother, firmer jaw line that mirrors the younger-looking appearance of other facial areas treated with Radiesse. Results last up to 1 year.
