Restore youthful volume and smooth out lines and wrinkles with the new generation of safe and effective dermal fillers. During your cosmetic consultation with Dr. Dele-Michael, she will discuss your cosmetic concerns with you and personalize your treatment plan for the best results.
Dr. Dele-Michael utilizes the innovative needle-less microcannula technique that reduces bruises and complications. That way you can go about your regular activities immediately after your filler injection.
Juvederm®, Restylane®, Perlane®, Belotero®
These dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the connective tissues of the body. These dermal fillers work immediately to add volume and fullness to the skin and smooth out skin wrinkles and folds. Dr Dele-Michael uses various dermal fillers to treat the nasolabial folds (creases from the nose to mouth), the nasomental creases (corners of the mouth), the lips and around the lips, tear trough (under eye circle and hollowing), cheek and chin contours. Over time, the hyaluronic acid degrades naturally into water and carbon dioxide that are safely metabolized by the body. Our staff will help you decide which dermal filler is best for you.
Ingredient: Hyaluronic acid
Duration: six months to one year, depending on the dermal filler used
RADIESSE® is a Volumizing Filler that immediately provides the volume and lift needed to reduce the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel that comprise the product. But what’s unique about RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. Over time, the microspheres degrade naturally into calcium and phosphate ions that are safely metabolized by the body. Dr. Dele-Michael may use Radiesse® to augment the nasolabial folds, corners of the mouth, as well as cheek, chin and jawline contouring.
Ingredient: calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel
Duration: results last up to a year.
Sculptra® treatment is an excellent choice for individuals with facial lipoatrophy (facial fat loss.) Sculptra® is a synthetic injectable material known as “poly-L-lactic acid.” Poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible, biodegradable and immunologically inert material that has been used widely for many years in dissolvable stitches, facial implants, and other types of soft tissue implants.
After your first treatment, it may appear that Sculptra® worked immediately because of the swelling from the injections and the water used to dilute Sculptra®. In a few days, the swelling will resolve. Sculptra® works gradually over time to restore a smoother, fuller appearance to the treated area.
Dr. Dele-Michael will determine the number of treatment sessions and the amount of Sculptra® you will need at each treatment. Patients with significant facial fat loss typically require up to six treatment sessions. Treatment intervals of 4-12 weeks are recommended.
Ingredient: Poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible, biodegradable and immunologically inert material that has been used widely for many years in dissolvable stitches, facial implants, and other types of soft tissue implants.
Duration: The results of a series of Sculptra® Aesthetic treatments may last up to three years.
