About Dermal Fillers
You're getting older but you don't feel old - and thanks to a new generation of dermal fillers, you don't have to look older either. Looking younger, healthier and more relaxed is easier than ever before with injectable fillers.
The use of injectable dermal fillers has dramatically increased the options available for treating the affects that aging, gravity and other environmental toxins have had on your face. The procedure is performed in our spa in about 30 to 45 minutes and there is no down time. Most folks go right back to work and or other normal activities.
Several different types of injectable dermal fillers are available to clients. Ambrosia offers JUVÉDERM® and Radiesse® because they provide the best combination of treatment options and lasting results. During your complimentary consultation, our Medical Director will develop a customized treatment plan to fit your specific needs, goals and skin conditions.
Which Filler is Right for Me
We hear this question on a regular basis and the answer is that it depends on what area of the face you'd like to treat, your age, the condition of your skin i.e. the depth of your wrinkles and the desired effect you want to achieve. Whatever the answers are to these questions, we will work with you to develop a customized plan for your unique facial structure. Using cutting edge techniques, she translates your needs and goals into your desired look.
JUVEDERM® XC may be used in the nasolabial folds, lips, around the mouth and in the cheeks. Radiesse® may be used in the nasolabial folds, cheeks, temples, around the mouth, but should not be used in the lips.
Each Filler is Made Of. . .
You may also want to know what each filler is made of. JUVEDERM® XC is made of hyaluronic acid (a compound that occurs naturally in our bodies) and Radiesse® is made of calcium hydroxyl apatite.
How Long Does each Filler Last
Another important aspect of each treatment to consider is how long the treatment lasts. As a general rule, the longer the results, the higher the price per session. JUVEDERM® XC is the only filler FDA approved to last up to a year however, it really depends on what part of the face it is injected into. JUVEDERM® XC will last six to twelve months in the nasolabial folds, but just three to six months in the lips. Radiesse® may last between six and 12 months.
