THE RHA COLLECTION, JUVEDERM, VOLUMA, VOLBELLA, RADIESSE, BELOTERO, REFYNE, DEFYNE + MORE
Taking the benefits of surgical facelifts without the high costs and downtime, dermal fillers are used in minimally invasive medical skincare procedures where product is injected or placed into the dermis layer of your skin. The benefits look great and last from several months to a year depending on the product and person.
WHAT IS THE RHA COLLECTION?
RHA® is the latest innovation in HA technology, and is the first new filler technology developed since 2008. It is the first and only resilient hyaluronic acid filler designed for facial dynamics, and is formulated to be more like natural HA found in the skin.
RHA® changes the game with gel designed for dynamic wrinkles and natural expressions. Introduced in Europe in 2015, RHA® has been widely used because of its superior results with diminishing or eliminating dynamic wrinkles and folds. In 2020 RHA® became available in the U.S. to only a select group of practices.
The RHA® Collection’s unique combination of increased stretch and dynamic strength allows the gel to extend and adapt to dynamic facial movement, and maintain is physical characteristics over a wide range of stress. The result is a natural look both at rest and in motion. As your face moves, it moves with it!
WHAT IS VOLUMA?
JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC is our most popular filler and is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It helps correct age-related volume loss, creating contour and a subtle lift for a more youthful profile for up to 2 years with optimal treatment.
As you age, your cheeks flatten, and the skin may sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can help temporarily reverse these signs of aging, whether you are 21, 51, or 81. The smooth gel is injected into the cheek area to restore volume lost and the results are long-lasting. Our patients love the no-downtime, quick office visit and Donna’s method is relatively painless.
WHAT IS JUVEDERM?
JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler that Donna Sollima, R.N. uses regularly to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose including “smile lines”, vertical lip lines, and “marionette lines”. With Donna’s experienced and precise hand you’ll see the difference in the mirror while you’re sitting right there in the chair…not too shabby for the “Instant Gratification Society” in which we live today.
The benefits are bigger and better than just the immediate. JUVÉDERM® XC also helps to restore the natural contours of your beautiful face, and with just a single treatment of JUVÉDERM® XC, you can enjoy smooth and natural-looking results which often last up to a year.
To lessen the pain of treatments, JUVÉDERM® XC is infused with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to improve your comfort level, making the decision a whole lot easier to use a highly effective dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® XC.
WHAT IS THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN THE JUVEDERM FAMILY OF PRODUCTS?
The main active ingredient Hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found on your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds.
WHAT IS RADIESSE?
RADIESSE is an FDA-approved injectable filler offering immediate and long-term benefits as a volumizing and lifting agent. There are over 25 types of collagens, a type of protein in our body making up for a large portion of the proteins we carry. As we age, the collagen in our body that connects and supports everything from muscle to bones and tissue begins to break down.
This is where the calcium-based Radiesse enters the picture. A leading dermal filler for aesthetic uses, it has the power to restore lost volume right away as well as stimulate your body to produce more of its own collagen. Wrinkles are reduced by replenishing your skin’s lost volume with immediately visible results that last a year or more in many patients.
WHAT IS BELOTERO?
While BELOTERO is made of the same material as some other dermal fillers it has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction that looks smooth and completely natural. We use it for delicate areas such as vertical lips lines (thin lines that appear above the lip) and smile lines that run from the sides of the nose to corners of the mouth.
Our Belotero treatments are often complete in under thirty minutes, producing instant results and lasting up to six months or longer. You’ll have little to no downtime and go right back to your daily routine with remarkably reduced appearance of wrinkles and folds and beautifully smooth skin!
ARE DERMAL FILLERS FOR YOU?
Since approved by the FDA in 1981, dermal fillers have been used to repair and replenish areas of skin that suffer over time from thinning, sagging, and creasing. Like many other solutions we provide, Donna and Dr. Cambre at Bedford Skincare Clinic recommend and use only FDA-approved dermal fillers for patients who would like to:
- Remove or diminish wrinkles
- Soften facial creases
- Enhance natural face contours
- Enjoy plump lips
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
- Restore a youthful fullness to the overall face
- Restore volume to other areas such as hands and elbows
After injection, some patients may experience redness, bruising, swelling, or other local side effects. Most resolve within a few days. More rare side effects may include swelling that lasts longer or firmness/unevenness in the injected area. As with any injection, there may be a risk of infection. Donna or Dr. Cambre and the staff at Bedford Skincare Clinic are happy to discuss these side effects or any other questions you may have before treatment.
As with all of our medical skincare services we recommend calling for a complimentary consultation so Donna or Dr. Cambre can explore the best solutions for you and your skin.
