Fresher, Fuller Skin
There are more ways than ever to target the inevitable facial wrinkles and fold lines, and keep your skin looking fresh and youthful. Like Botox®, facial fillers can temporarily reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fold lines. Cincinnati Wellness Center offers two types of physician injected facial fillers: Radiesse® dermal filler, and Juvéderm® injectable gel. Both of these medical-grade facial fillers promote skin elasticity and collagen renewal. They’re highly effective, and only involve minimal recovery and downtime (usually under one hour). You can step into our office for treatment and step right back into your life—looking younger and feeling great.
Radiesse® Dermal Filler
Radiesse® dermal filler is made of biocompatible calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a compound similar to what is already naturally found in your body. It also has calcium-based microspheres: this is what creates the volume and lift. Once the doctor injects the gel into your skin, it starts working right away, making your skin look fuller again, and safely re-contouring your facial features.
What’s really unique about Radiesse® dermal filler is that it keeps working, for up to a year or more in many patients. The patented microsphere technology actually stimulates your body to produce new collagen to grow around the injection area, creating a kind of support structure under your skin. Eventually, the microspheres are safely and naturally absorbed into your body. Radiesse® helps you actually defy gravity and increase your confidence—all without invasive surgery or scarring.
Juvéderm® Injectable Gel
Juvéderm® is a smooth gel filler that, when injected by your doctor, restores your skin’s volume and wipes away facial wrinkles and other fold lines in your face. It’s made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring moisturizer in your skin that’s responsible for giving your face structure and volume. Young skin has a lot of HA, but you have less HA as you age, which causes those wrinkles and folds to form.
Juvéderm® is injected with a very fine needle, and there is lidocaine mixed with the gel to ease any discomfort. Just one treatment of Juvéderm® injections can provide results for up to a year. Juvéderm® is particularly effective at targeting your smile lines (the nasolabial folds), the vertical wrinkles and folds below the corners of the mouth, and the wrinkles above and around the lips. It’s the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler that’s FDA approved to last up to one year with just one treatment.
