What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectable substances used for injection into the dermis, the living tissue below the surface of the skin. They are used mainly to improve volume under the skin, which can help to plump out wrinkles or hollows in the lower face caused by the ageing process or loss of facial fat.
Where are the fillers gotten from?
We use the fillers from the most popular world lieder companies of surgical and non-surgical aesthetic products Allergan, USA and their new generation fillers Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Ultraand Juvederm Volbella, as well as Merz Aesthetics Company, France and their revolutionary different lifting filler Radiesse.
They create a naturally beautiful effect and their advance products contain Lidocaine to help numb the treated area simultaneously during the treatment. This has proven to improve patients’ experience.

What is JUVÉDERM made from?
The JUVÉDERM collection of dermal fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). What’s interesting about HA is that it’s a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.
What should you expect?
Your aesthetic specialist administers the treatment during a brief office visit. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA , JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA , and JUVÉDERM Ultra contain lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during the treatment. If you’re still concerned about treatment discomfort, your doctor may offer additional anesthetic options for you.
Are Fillers safe?
JUVEDERM Fillers injectable gel are made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is naturally occurring in our body and is a major component of the skin. Allergan’s HA injectable gel is the safest type of filler available on the market and has been FDA approved for the years.
For JUVÉDERM Ultra, the downtime is little to none and lasts 7 days or less. The most common side effects include temporary injection-site reactions such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling and bruising. For VOLUMA XC, side effects are mild to moderate and generally last 1 to 2 weeks. The most common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain and redness.
What is Radiesse?
RADIESSE – INSTANT VOLUME, LIFTING AND CONTOUR
Radiesse is injectable dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and gives an immediate lifting and firming effect on the skin. Once injected, Radiesse directly provides volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of ageing because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. Both the gel and the microspheres are completely broken down by the body over time.
RADIESSE – A COLLAGEN STIMULATOR
In addition to an immediate filling effect, the high-quality ingredients of Radiesse stimulate the skin’s natural collagen synthesis. Thanks to the collagen-inducing effect of Radiesse, the skin regains its youthful tightness and elasticity – your natural beauty blooms again.
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse is composed of small calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a soft gel matrix. Radiesse is gently injected by your doctor into the skin, usually in small amounts with a very fine needle. For additional treatment comfort, the doctor may apply a local anesthetic to treated areas. This injection provides an immediate and visible effect. Additionally, Radiesse stimulates your skin’s own regeneration abilities – new collagen is produced over the following weeks and months, making your skin stronger and more elastic. Radiesse treatment results are long-lasting, but not permanent. Many patients come back to repeat treatments because they are very happy with them. Once injected, Radiesse provides immediate volume and correction but also continues to work by stimulating the skin to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolises the CaHA microspheres, leaving behind only the skin’s natural collagen.
Radiesse shows an immediate one-to-one correction and lifting effect. It can instantly soften your smile lines, replace lost volume in your cheeks, or contour your jawline. Over the following weeks, Radiesse microspheres stimulate the skin to produce new collagen for a soft, natural look. Newly formed collagen surrounds the microspheres. The microspheres are eventually metabolised by the body’s normal processes. The new collagen provides a long-term effect that may last for a year or more in many patients.
What to expect?
The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. Unfortunately, treating individual wrinkles is often not enough to restore a youthful and fresh appearance. In order to counter the effects of gravity and regain a younger shape, the face needs real lifting. With Radiesse, you welcome back your skin’s natural collagen to smooth out sagging effects. The unique formulation of Radiesse stimulates the production of new collagen, which results in increased volume that may last a year or more in many patients*. Thanks to this method of wrinkle correction, Radiesse is more and more becoming the favourite injectable filler of many patients and medical professionals.

Radiesse offers you a safe and convenient way to regain the youthful contours of your face. A Radiesse treatment can be performed during a single visit at your practitioners’ office and the results are immediately visible. Moreover, Radiesse has a very favourable safety profile:

- There is no need for an allergy test prior to Radiesse injections since the microspheres are comprised of a substance naturally found in the body.
