Each time we laugh, smile, cry, or frown, our muscles contract. Over time, these muscular contractions develop into wrinkles, deep creases and furrows in the skin, which make us look tired, angry, or old.
Aesthetx offers dermal fillers, a series of rejuvenating injectables that can can erase years of aging to give a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Aesthetx offers a repertoire of dermal fillers that have demonstrated efficacy and safety. Many of the dermal fillers we use contain substances that are found inside the body naturally, while others contain synthetic ingredients to mimic natural substances or to stimulate the skin’s natural production of collagen.
Aesthetx uses a unique protocol for administering our dermal fillers: each procedure is treated as a sterile implant procedure, with stringent protocols for antiseptic application. With this, Aesthetx guarantees a level of care and safety that’s not seen in other practices.
Types of Dermal Fillers
- Revance RHA® Fillers
This is a family of injectable dermal fillers made up of a substance called hyaluronic acid. In general, Juvéderm® is formulated to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in the face, while adding temporary volume to the face as well as a smooth texture in the skin. Depending on the targeted areas, Juvéderm® results will last from nine to 12 months.
Radiesse® is an injectable treatment designed to fill wrinkles and add plumpness to the skin. Once injected, you will see immediate volume under the skin. The main benefit of using Radiesse® dermal fillers is it will continue to stimulate collagen production in your body, providing immediate and long-lasting results.
Radiesse® can be used to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such a nasolabial fold. It can also be used to improve jawline contour in adults over 21, creating a smoother, more sculpted appearance.
Like all dermal fillers, Restylane® is effective in smoothing out moderate to severe facial wrinkles and fine lines, including laugh lines and marionette lines. It is also FDA-approved as a lip enhancer. Restylane® dermal fillers produce immediate results that last for several months.
Correcting facial fat loss, including hollow eyes, sunken cheeks and many other indentations, is easy with Sculptra®. Along with restoring volume to the face, it can also reduce facial wrinkles and folds. Sculptra® is formulated with alpha hydroxyl acid, which is safe, biodegradable, and biocompatible. Sculptra® achieves the desired results in just one treatment session, and the results can last up to two years.
A member of the Juvéderm® family of dermal fillers, Voluma™ is a new FDA-approved anti-aging product specifically formulated for adding volume to the cheeks and chin. This is the only dermal filler that provides subtle, natural-looking enhancements to the mid-face. Its active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally found in the body. Results of Voluma™ can last up to 18 months.
Revance RHA® Fillers
Although traditional HA fillers are excellent for addressing static lines and wrinkles, our RHA® Collection offers another dimension—the ability to adapt to facial movement.
RHA® is Resilient Hyaluronic Acid. It represents the latest development in HA filler science to resolve dynamic wrinkles and folds, keep you looking beautiful during rest, and appear flawless in motion. In addition, it offers extensive duration and long-term safety.
Made with a gentle manufacturing process, the RHA® Collection’s reduced crosslinking allows the gel to move and accompany the harsh strains of facial expressions and deliver durable outcomes.
It closely mimics natural Hyaluronic Acid and achieves:
- A natural and youthful appearance at rest and in motion
- Proven clinical effectiveness and duration for up to fifteen months
- No treatment-related adverse effects
We offer several variations of RHA® to our patients. The formulation we select for you will depend on your unique cosmetic needs and desired goals. The RHA® variations include:
- RHA® 2
RHA® 2 is intended for the mid-to-deep dermis to treat moderate wrinkles, particularly those around the mouth.
- RHA® 3
RHA® 3 is ideal for the mid-to-deep dermis to treat dynamic or deep wrinkles, especially those around the nose and mouth.
- RHA® 4
RHA® 4 is designed to be injected into the deep dermis to treat the deepest and most dynamic wrinkles that cannot be treated by other injectable treatments.
Restylane® and Juvéderm® are FDA-approved dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid gels. Juvéderm® comes as a smooth gel, while Restylane® is slightly granular. These differences can impact where your San Jose practitioner decides to use facial fillers. Restylane® typically lasts from six to nine months, while Juvéderm®’s effects can last nine months to a year.
What is the difference between a dermal filler and BOTOX®?
Both involve injections, but BOTOX® relaxes muscle movement that creates dynamic wrinkles. Dermal fillers restore lost volume to smooth over static (stationary) wrinkles. We often combine these treatments to deliver optimal facial improvement.
