Dermal fillers are substances injected directly into the skin and help make the targeted area look youthful and full of volume once again. Here at Alexandria Otolaryngology Associates, we offer two different types:
JUVÉDERM® is composed mainly of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring chemical found in the skin and muscle tissue. Because of its composition, there are virtually no side effects, the solution is not harmful to your health and it is extremely safe.
JUVÉDERM® is unlike most dermal fillers because of it’s unique ‘cross-linking’ technology that rids the formula of the sand-like or granular consistency that plagues other fillers and instead creates a fluid gel that looks and feels natural and smooth to the touch.
JUVÉDERM® is also one of the few filler gels to be approved for use by individuals of color.
Results last up to one year.
RADIESSE® is a biocompatible, non-toxic filler that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose.
By simulating the production of new collagen (the substance in your skin that makes it smooth and youthful), RADIEESE® fortifies the structure of your skin and increases its volume.
