Restylane® Filler Products
Facial fillers are composed of a variety of compounds including hyaluronic acid which are used to diminish fine lines and restore facial volume that is lost due to changes with aging. Areas that are treated include the cheeks, around the eyes, the temporal areas, and lips. A youthful appearance is achieved that can appear natural and refreshed. Safety is of utmost importance. Thorough knowledge of anatomy is key in order to reduce the rare although significant risks that exist. Fillers are temporary and gradually are absorbed by the body over time. Common fillers include Juvederm Ultra®, Juvederm Voluma®, Restylane®, Restylane Silk®, Radiesse®, Sculptra®, and Bolitero®.
