ANTIAGING TREATMENTS: FACIAL

Semi Permanent Dermal Fillers

 

Outline

Outline is a non-animal, absorbable Polylacrylamide HYDROGEL dermal filler using a gentle positive charge, to attract negatively-charged pro-collagen molecules. Once housed and protected by the Outline, the pro-collagen molecules assemble into collagen and form part of your tissues. When the positive charge has become equalled by the negative charge, the attraction stops.

Outline replaces lost tissue and provides the frame work for new collagen assembly. Most polyacrylamides are insoluble and do not break down but Outline has been formulated in such a way that it is broken down very slowly by tissue enzymes into smaller fragments of polyacrylamide and then removed naturally from the body. Outline is a longer lasting temporary filler which can last for up to five years depending upon the type used and area treated.

Radiesse™

Is made up of is approximately 30% CaHA and 70% gel carrier by volume. The CaHA spheres are composed of calcium and phosphate ions which occur naturally in human tissue. It is a long lasting, resorbable filler - with the effect claimed to last approximately 2 years depending on the patient and the area treated. Once injected into your skin, the smooth and spherical CaHA particles form a framework which your own tissue grows new collagen cells between. The gel carrier dissolves within a few months and over time, the CaHA particles gradually break down and are completely metabolised by the body, leaving only the new collagen structure.


Restylane

Restylane ® product range consists of four different sizes of gel particle specifically designed for use in certain areas of the face. All products are are a non-animal stabilised hyaluronic acid (NASHA) gel. Restylane intermediate gel particle size that makes it suitable for moderate wrinkles and lip enhancement. It is recommended that it is injected into the middle part of the dermis (middle layer of skin). Restylane Perlane has a larger gel particle size and is used for deep lines, facial contouring, and lip enhancement.

It is injected into the deep layer of the dermis. Restylane Touch has the smallest gel particle size in the Q-med range and is used for the correction of very thin superficial lines. It is injected into the upper part of the dermis. Restylane Lipp has been specially designed for injecting into the lips for enhancement and contouring.

Restylane SubQ has the largest gel particle size in the range and is used to replace fat loss in the face and create or restore a more defined facial contour.

Reviderm Intra

Reviderm Intra is an injectable implant (flexible Dextran microbeads -- Dextran is a carbohydrate complex, the liquid form was once used in the place of saline in breast implants) 40-60 microns in size. The micro-beads are evenly suspended in a non-animal hyaluronic acid. Reviderm intra is injected subdermally.

The volume to be implanted depends on the depth and size of the skin defect or wrinkle. After the procedure, the hyaluronic acid vehicle will be degraded by the body within 3–6 months. All dextran beads will be totally encapsulated by a fine fibrous capsule. This connective tissue holds the dextran beads in place indefinitely and the process will be completed within 2 – 4 months after injection. As the beads appear to be biodegradable over time, the results may be long lasting but not permanent.

Sculptra ®

Sculptra ® - previously branded as New-Fill® - can help cause new collagen growth rather than just mechanically filling depressions. Sculptra® is used more as a sculpting agent rather than just wrinkle filler and larger areas can be treated with a longer lasting result. The product itself is not permanent but the effects can last up to 2 years.
