If you are thinking about having a dermal filler treatment, you have come to the right place. At Lacamas Dental and Cosmetic Center we have been providing dermal fillers for cosmetic purposes since 2005. Let us provide you with a free consultation so that we can decide together whether or not this treatment is suitable for you.
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds - like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.
Using a dermal filler like Juvederm, Radiesse or Belotero is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines (parenthesis) to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours. JUVÉDERM is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. JUVÉDERM is manufactured using HYLACROSS technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. With JUVÉDERM you get the smooth results you expect, with the improved comfort you want.
For JUVÉDERM most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and last 7 days or less. The most common side effects include temporary injection-site reactions such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration.
For JUVÉDERM side effects are moderate (uncomfortable), and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. The most common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
The best solution for erasing lines and folds is to replace lost structure with immediate volume. RADIESSE works immediately so the results are instant. Once injected, RADIESSE adds the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging. What makes RADIESSE truly unique is the ability of the product to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. The production of natural collagen continues for several months, which extends beyond the initial effect of RADIESSE. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which means more value from each treatment and long-lasting results.
Warnings: RADIESSE should not be injected into blood vessels. Use of RADIESSE in any person with active skin inflammation or infection in or near the treatment area should be deferred until the inflammatory or infectious process has been controlled. The safety and effectiveness for use in the lips has not been established. There have been published reports of nodules associated with the use of RADIESSE injected into the lips.
Precautions: Safety for use during pregnancy, in breastfeeding females or in patients under 18 years has not been established. As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. Patients using medications that prolong bleeding, such as aspirin or warfarin, may, as with any injection procedure, experience increased bruising and bleeding at the injection site. Patients should inform their physician if they are using such medications. Patients should minimize exposure of the treated area to extensive sun or heat exposure for approximately 24 hours after treatment or until any initial swelling and redness has resolved. Safety and effectiveness in the periorbital area has not been established. The safety of RADIESSE in patients with a susceptibility to keloid formation and hypertrophic scarring has not been studied. Patients with a history of previous herpetic eruption may experience reactivation of the herpes.
Adverse Events: After injection, patients may experience redness, bruising, swelling or other local side effects. Most side effects of treatment resolve within a few days. More rare side effects may include swelling that lasts longer, unevenness or firmness in the area injected.
BELOTERO is specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you. BELOTERO has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line). BELOTERO is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.
Warnings: Use of BELOTERO at specific sites in which an active inflammatory process (skin eruptions such as cold sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, or hives) or infection is present should be deferred until the underlying process has been controlled. BELOTERO must not be injected into blood vessels of any size. Introduction of BELOTERO into the vasculature may occlude the vessels and can cause infarction of overlying tissue or embolization with resultant necrosis of potentially large areas of distant tissue such as the lip or the nose. Injection site responses to BELOTERO have been observed, consisting mainly of short-term inflammatory symptoms starting early after treatment and with 7 days duration or less.
Precautions: The safety or effectiveness of BELOTERO for the treatment of dermal contour defects other than nasolabial folds, such as use in the lips, has not been established in controlled clinical studies. The safety of BELOTERO for use during pregnancy, in breastfeeding females, or in patients under 21 years has not been established. As with all transcutaneous procedures, BELOTERO injection carries a risk of infection. Patients who are using substances that reduce coagulation, such as aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and warfarin may, as with any injection, experience increased bruising or bleeding at injection sites. Patients should inform their physicians if they are taking such substances. Laser treatment, chemical peeling, or any other procedure based on active dermal response performed after treatment with BELOTERO may increase the risk of an inflammatory reaction at the injection site. Similarly, the administration of BELOTERO before the skin has healed completely after such a procedure may also increase the risk of inflammatory reactions. Exposure of the treated area to excessive sun, UV lamp exposure, and extreme cold weather should be minimized until any initial swelling and redness have resolved and puncture sites have healed.
Adverse Events: The most common side effects seen after injection were swelling, bruising, redness, and hardening that resolve within one week. More rare side effects may include swelling that lasts longer, unevenness or firmness in the area injected, and as with any injection, there may be a risk of infection.
