Hyaluronic acid fillers are a safe option because of their dissolvability. Peace of mind…if you don’t like it…it is dissolvable.
Belotero is a newer filler that has been successfully used in Europe for several years and is now available on the U.S. market. One of the benefits of Belotero® is that it can be used for very fine lines. Belotero® is a hyaluronic acid filler similar to Restylane and Juvederm. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found throughout your body, giving Belotero® a high safety profile.
Because of the nature of the Belotero® molecules, fine lines can be treated with less risk of lumpiness. Whether you are a candidate for Belotero® is best determined at a thorough consultation.
Juvederm® Ultra is a next-generation, cross-linked hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA in June 2006 for treatment of nasolabial folds. It has gained popularity because the effects can be dramatic and immediate, and the results can last up to a year.
Juvederm® Ultra adds volume to the face and smoothes folds. With advanced injection techniques, Juvederm® can also be used to lift and contour facial features and folds.
Cross-linking refers to a process in which the individual chains of hyaluronic acid are bound or ‘cross-linked’ together, transforming the liquid hyaluronic acid into a soft gel. The firmness of the gel depends on the degree of cross-linking of the individual hyaluronic acid chains. The body metabolizes cross-linked hyaluronic acid more slowly, resulting in a longer duration of effect.
As an advanced, cross-linked hyaluronic acid, the results of a Juvederm® treatment will typically last up to a year or more. Results will vary depending upon injector technique, the facial area in which it is applied, and upon the individual’s muscle movement, skin and health characteristics. For example, in areas of the face where there is less exaggerated muscle movement, Juvederm®Ultra often lasts longer.

Juvederm Voluma XC is designed to restore facial contours that have been negatively affected by signs of aging: volume loss. The primary difference between Voluma and other members of the Juvederm family (Ultra & Ultra Plus) is, although they are great for wrinkles, they are inadequate for treating serious volume loss. Simply put, Voluma rejuvenates your facial contours at a structural level.
Aging causes the face to sag and hollow due to the redistribution of fat and the changes that occur to the facial skeleton. Other products only smooth away wrinkles and creases (considered two-dimensional) Voluma takes on a more complex, three-dimensional issue of volume loss for a more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.
One of the main changes that occur to our face over time is volume-loss. Our cheeks, for example, are generally at their most voluminous and smooth when we are babies. A young-looking face can be compared to an egg, with the narrower part of the egg pointing down. When we are young we have a fine, defined jawline with smooth contours, and our cheeks and upper-face are full of volume. The overall shape & contour of the face, however, changes with age. As we get older the egg can start to turn upside down. This is because over time we gradually lose facial volume, our skin becomes thinner and the effects of gravity can become apparent.
Restoring the soft tissues of the face by adding volume is increasingly becoming a corner-stone of facial rejuvenation science, and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA is, therefore, an effective procedure for both rejuvenating and enhancing our appearance. One of the areas where treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA is most effective is in the midface and cheekbone areas. The objective of treatment is to replace or enhance facial volume and restore the youthful contours of the face.
Juvederm Volbella XC is the newest member of the Juvederm family and we are excited to offer the revolutionary new filler Juvederm Volbella XC to our Trouvaille patients.
Juvederm Volbella XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for up to 1 year.
Some clients may wish to add subtle volume to their lips; others may want to soften the appearance of the vertical lines above them. Lines such as these are often caused by factors such as sun exposure or repeated muscle movement. This may be a treatment giving you a natural-looking, long-lasting result.
Restylane: Add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane can also add fullness and definition to lips in patients over 21 years, providing natural-looking results with just one treatment.
A treatment with Restylane provides an easy way to stay in control of your looks. The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and may last up to one year. With Restylane, you will get a natural looking result that does not affect facial expressions. Restylane has been used in over 20 million treatments worldwide since the launch in 1996.
Restylane Silk is FDA approved for plumping lips and filling wrinkles around the mouth (also known as smoker’s lines, water bottle/straw lines or perioral rhytids).
The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane products.
In the study that led to the FDA’s approval of Restylane Silk, 98 percent of participants reported an improvement in lip fullness two weeks after treatments. 76 percent showed fullness six months after their injection. According to manufacturers, Restylane Silk results last for at least six months. Treatment time varies from patient to patient.
Restylane Lyft is brought to you by the trusted Restylane family of fillers, Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler that treats two areas of the face:
- Provides a subtle, natural-looking lift to visibly “sagging” cheeks.
- Precisely corrects lines, folds, and wrinkles on sides of the nose and mouth.
As you age, so does your face. You may be noticing some obvious signs of aging that you hadn’t previously seen before. What were once subtle lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth have started to deepen over time. Cheeks that used to appear full and taut suddenly seem to sag and droop. While aging is a reality of life, it doesn’t mean you can’t maintain a natural, youthful look along the way. That’s why there’s Restylane Lyft.
In clinical studies, Restylane Lyft was proven to be highly effective and long-lasting. 6 months after treatment, over 70% of patients experienced improvement in the lines on the sides of their nose and mouth—and over 90% saw fuller natural-looking cheeks.
Radiesse is a safe, next-generation cosmetic dermal filler that lasts longer than the former leading filler. Over time, our hands naturally lose volume, which can leave skin looking thin and wrinkled, often revealing unsightly tendons and veins. Radiesse is the only dermal filler proven to immediately restore volume loss in hands for smooth, natural-looking results that won’t give away your age. In just one treatment, Radiesse for hands provides immediate volume restoration to enhance the appearance of your hands, and it continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen.
Sculptra is a type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds, that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. Once injected, it begins working deep within the skin to stimulate collagen production, reinforcing the skin’s inner structure and restoring its volume.
In major clinical studies, patients were still showing improvement 25 months after the last injection. Sculptra Aesthetic works subtly and gradually to restore a youthful-looking appearance. Over the course of several treatment sessions (an average of 3 over a few months), Sculptra Aesthetic produces results that emerge over time.
The most important thing to remember with this type of treatment is to remember it takes time to work. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see immediate results. A few days after treatment, you may look as you did before treatment. This is normal and temporary. Remember it works to GRADUALLY replace lost collagen. Visible results appear after the first few treatment sessions.
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin” by physically destroying fat cells. Submental fullness due to fat beneath the chin can impact a broad range of both male and female adults. Some possible causes are genetics, weight gain, and aging. Even with diet or exercise, the unwanted fullness beneath your chin may not go away, and it could make you appear older or heavier that you actually are. It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective in children less than 18 years of age. It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism.
You and your provider will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, your HCP will administer KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.
Platelet-rich plasma, or often termed as PRP, is concentrated blood plasma (composition of blood) that contains approximately five times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. Apart from red blood cells and white blood cells, our blood also contains cells known as platelets. The function of platelets is to promote healing and aid in the clotting of blood at the site of a wound. Platelets contain growth factors that promote regeneration of the cells in the body. PRP has been used in medicine for the last two decades.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) also known as plasma rich in growth factors is the latest tendency in anti-aging. The treatment reverses al the common aging signs in the skin specifically in the areas of the face, neck, hands and other parts of the body. The advantages of PRP over other common anti-aging treatments like neuromodulators and dermal fillers is its unique natural quality. The therapy uses the patient’s own blood, making the treatment hypoallergenic. Upon activation, PRP is injected into wrinkles for immediate volume augmentation and long-lasting collagen regenerating effects. Additionally, it enhances the texture and vitality of your skin by creating new blood vessels.
Certain areas on our bodies will age much quicker than others. These areas are the most exposed to sun damage, free radicals, and other age factors. Thin areas under our eyes and the skin on our neck show dramatic improvement with PRP Therapy to reverse signs of aging. Lines on the upper lips, as seen on many smokers, can improve in depth and hydration.
PRP Therapy will improve general texture and tone to any area the platelet and growth factor rich blood is injected. For cosmetic application, it is usually recommended to have a minimum of three treatments, one month apart. It is always best to wait a minimum of three months after the third treatment session before making a judgment on the results. Some patients will achieve further changes for three to six months after their final treatment.
