WHAT IS IT?
Dermal fillers are a safe, non-invasive option used to reduce and smooth lines and wrinkles. They address key areas of volume loss, which lifts and sculpts your face to reestablish youthful, yet balanced facial contours. We use a variety of dermal fillers because each filler produces a different clinical result. Based on your concerns, skin quality, and facial anatomy our highly trained and experienced injectors will choose the filler that achieves the best result. Only an injector who injects frequently, has years of clincal experience, and an artful-eye, can envision how to restore volume loss to give you the best results possible!
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC is the newest addition to the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC softens moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles by adding volume to the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth to produce subtle and long-lasting results for up to 18 months. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is made with the same Vycross technology used in VOLUMA XC (to lift cheeks) and VOLBELLA XC (to soften lip lines) which allows them to hold their shape while giving a soft, smooth appearance.
JUVÉDERM ultra XC and JUVÉDERM ultra plus XC are clear, injectable gels made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume where you’ve lost it. With Juvéderm you will immediately see facial lines and wrinkles disappear, leaving you with a natural result that will last up to a year. JUVÉDERM is often used around the mouth for lip lines, marionettes, and nasolabial folds (the line from your nose to the corner of your lip) as it is a soft and natural looking filler. All Juvéderm products are safe, effective, and FDA-approved.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel is the first and only FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It can create beautiful cheekbones even if you weren’t born with them! This injectable gel contains a modified hyaluronic acid (HA), derived from a naturally occurring sugar. Results can last up to 2 years and can give you a beautiful and lifted look.
RADIESSE is made of calcium-based microspheres, suspended in a water-based injectable gel. Upon injection, RADIESSE immediately and safely adds volume to contour, correct, and beautify your facial features. RADIESSE is often used to contour cheeks or used in areas that need a bit more lift. Unlike other dermal fillers, RADIESSE will continue to work over time by helping your body produce new collagen around these particles, with results lasting up to a year or more.
RESTYLANE is a clear, injectable gel made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body, so it carries little risk of allergic reaction. The most common areas for treatment are the nasolabial folds (the line from your nose to the corner of your lip). RESTYLANE can also be used to minimize volume loss around the eyes, known at the tear trough area. This is an advanced treatment that only an experienced injector should perform. With its unique ability to bind with water, RESTYLANE can last up to 6 months, sometimes longer in certain areas where there is less movement and breakdown of the product.
BELOTERO BALANCE is a hyaluronic acid injectable filler designed to integrate into skin tissue. The unique manufacturing process for BELOTERO BALANCE yields a soft, cohesive gel that once injected, instantly fills the skin to smooth those hard to treat etched-in lines (lines that are visible at rest) and wrinkles. It’s an ideal option for treating delicate areas such as etched-in nasolabial lines (the line from your nose to the corner of your lip) and vertical lip lines.
SCULPTRA AESTHETIC is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. It’s injected into the deeper layer of the skin to help lift the jowls, improve the appearance of cheek hollows and smile lines, or other lines and wrinkles on the face or neck. With SCULPTRA AESTHETIC you get a gradual, natural-looking result without looking like you’ve had work done. A full correction treatment can last up to two years. The main component is L-polylactic-acid which is a non-toxic, biodegradable filler stimulates your own body to produce collagen. This safe and effective type of filler known as a “stimulator,” has been used for 40 years in surgical products such as dissolvable sutures.
Dermal fillers require precision, anatomical understanding and most importantly, artistry of the injector to carefully place dermal files to achieve the best result. Our providers will carefully assess your unique facial features to determine the best filler to use based on your specific concerns. Dr. Kim Thompson, DO, Tara McDermott, RN and Dr. Glen Jarosz, ND have practiced aesthetic medicine exclusively for the past 10+ and 7+ years respectively. Our experienced injectors are always keeping abreast the latest products and techniques. Their knowledge and clinical experience make them sought after injectors in Salem and the Willamette Valley. They have clients from Vancouver, WA, Eugene, Corvallis, Portland and, of course, Salem for their expertise.
