What Is JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel?
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvéderm™ injectable gel, you don't have to just sit back and let it happen!
Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Dr. Puig eases Juvéderm™ injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Juvéderm™ provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of Juvéderm™ compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.†
With Juvéderm™ the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there's minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into your doctor's office
for treatment and step right back into your life. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing. One treatment could smooth your lines and wrinkles for up to one year! However,
results may vary and correction is temporary. Supplemental "touch up" treatments may be required to acheive and maintain optimal results.
*Juvéderm™ is indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).
†The other dermal filler used in this study was ZYPLAST® dermal filler (bovine-based collagen).
Radiesse® dermal filler is made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, and is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure. Radiesse® dermal filler is the ideal choice for total facial contouring. It can restore a healthy, youthful appearance, enhance your existing features, help you defy age and gravity, and increase your confidence – all without invasive surgery or scarring.
Radiesse® dermal filler is ...
Radiesse® dermal filler works with your own body in a remarkable way. Upon injection, it immediately adds volume to safely contour, correct, and beautify facial features. And unlike other fillers, Radiesse® dermal filler continues to work over time. With its patented microsphere technology, it starts a process called collagenesis, stimulating your body to produce new collagen and encouraging collagen to grow around the injection area. Radiesse® dermal filler actually helps your body create its own naturally younger look, setting a new standard in facial contouring and augmentation.
Radiesse® dermal filler has been clinically tested extensively for years, with excellent safety and efficacy results. It has received CE mark certification, two FDA approvals, and a number of FDA clearances. Radiesse® dermal filler is made from a biocompatible substance that’s identical to what’s naturally found in the body. There’s virtually no risk of allergic reaction, and there have been very few side effects reported in clinical trials and actual use.
Immediate and long-lasting
Treatment with Radiesse® dermal filler is so simple and convenient, it can be performed during a lunch hour. You’ll see the results right away - and these results may last up to a year or more for many patients. The long-lasting effects of Radiesse® dermal filler can reduce the need for retreatment, which saves you time and money compared with other fillers.

Restylane® is an injectable gel which should always administered by a trained, medically qualified practitioner. Restylane® enhances your natural looks by restoring your skin’s volume, creating softness and revitalizing your appearance.
How it Works
Youthful skin is rich in hyaluronic acid. As we age, the distribution and function of hyaluronic acid in our skin gradually change, leading to the characteristic signs of aging. Restylane® gels work by enhancing your skin’s own stocks of hyaluronic acid, directly adding volume to either soften the signs of aging or enhance your features. The procedure is quick. It usually takes less than 30 minutes. The benefits can be seen immediately.
