RADIESSE Dermal Filler at Santa Barbara Medical Spa’s “Injectable Week”

Evolutions Medical Spa‘s most popular event of the year is just around the corner! Injectable Week features “once a year” specials on all our injectables including Botox, Dysport, Perlane, Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse. Botox and Dysport relax muscles in the forehead region to smooth wrinkles while dermal fillers “fill” crevices, wrinkles, fine lines, and folds.  A common place to use a filler is in the nasolabial lines that are present from the nose to the corners of the mouth (see the before and after picture below) however fillers can be used anywhere that your face is lacking volume.

RADIESSE Before-and-After
RADIESSE used to fill the nasolabial lines.

There are dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid molecules that attract water to the area filled which results in a restoration of facial volume. These fillers are Perlane, Restylane, and Juvederm and they commonly last six months or more (depending on the person). Our clients who have used these fillers before have been very satisfied with their results.  There is another filler, RADIESSE, that we wanted to highlight because it has an added benefit that hyaluronic acid fillers do not have – Radiesse can stimulate the production of your own collagen (and has been clinically proven to do so)!

RADIESSE is an FDA-approved injectable filler that is composed of calcium-based microspheres. It acts as a scaffolding under the skin to provide instantaneous lift and fullness while stimulating your body’s own collagen production so that your skin looks better over time. In addition to the collagen production, Radiesse has been clinically proven to last a year or more in clients. Radiesse can be a very affordable wrinkle correction option because the time between touch-ups is longer and you may need less product on subsequent treatments. For instance, if you need 2 syringes of Radiesse at the initial treatment for full correction, you may need only 1 syringe on a follow-up treatment, which could take place one or one and half years later.

A Radiesse treatment is relatively short and comfortable. Radiesse is FDA approved to be mixed with an anesthetic (lidocaine) to significantly improve your comfort level during the procedure. There is no downtime after a Radiesse treatment although exercising after the treatment is not recommended (normal exercise can be resumed the next day). Swelling or bruising may occur and can be treated with an ice pack. Some people do not experience any swelling or bruising.

Popular treatment areas are shown below but Radiesse can be used in many other places, as determined by you and your clinician:

A great time to try Radiesse is during our Injectable Week where there will be savings and chances to win great raffle prizes during the entire week.

Injectable Week starts on Monday, November 26th and ends on Saturday, December 1st. Appointments book fast during this popular week so call today to get a spot – 805-687-0212!

Evolutions Event Recap: Dermal Fillers in Santa Barbara

Yesterday’s event at Evolutions Medical Spa in Santa Barbara was a treat for everyone. Our rep from Medicis (the company who makes Restylane, Perlane, and Dysport) delivered a thorough overview on dermal fillers and answered many questions from the audience.  After the presentation, guests were invited to watch Dr. Perkins perform a dermal filler treatment so that they could witness the immediate effects that fillers have!

Here is a recap of the evening’s presentation:

What is Restylane?
Restylane is a dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in your skin that provides fullness and elasticity.  As we age, hyaluronic acid diminishes and the skin loses volume.  Hyaluronic acid recruits water to the skin to encourage fullness. Restylane, and Perlane (another dermal filler), are made from cross-linked hyaluronic acid so that it is not metabolized as fast as the hyaluronic acid that naturally occurs in the body and this gives clients a result that can last six months or more.

What can dermal fillers – Restylane and Perlane – do for me?
Restylane and Perlane can be used to to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.  Restylane can also be used for lip enhancement (for patients 21+ years). Restylane is a thinner product that is typically used for wrinkles, fine lines, and delicate areas. Perlane provides more structure and lift.  It is possible to use both products together. Which product you use is best determined by your clinician.  

Where can dermal fillers be used?
The areas treated by Restylane or Perlane are:

  • laugh lines
  • marionette lines
  • lipstick lines
  • corners of mouth
  • lips (Restylane only)
Restylane Filler Santa Barbara

 

How long do dermal fillers last for?
When you get a filler treatment, there is little to no downtime, and you will see results immediately.  Effects of the filler will last at least  six months. In a clinical study, 95% of patients who returned for a second treatment 4.5 to 9 months after initial treatment continued to see results for up to 18 months. For some patients, receiving a second treatment before the first treatment completely wears off is a better value because they may achieve the same results with less product. For instance, a patient who had 2 syringes done in the first treatment, may only need 1 syringe in the follow up. Of course this may vary by individual.

How safe are dermal fillers?
Restylane was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2005. It is composed of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid which means there is limited risk of animal-based disease transmission or development of allergic reactions to the proteins.  No allergy testing is required before use.  It is fully biocompatible.  Restylane is used in over 70 countries worldwide.

Are there side effects to Restylane or Perlane?
Some people may experience swelling at the injection site, redness, pain, tenderness or bruising up to about seven days after treatment.  Side effects vary depending on the individual. Some people will have no side effects. Any bruising is usually easily able to be covered by make-up.

How do I prepare for my filler treatment?
It is suggested that you stop the following medications and supplements one week prior to treatment: St. John’s Wart, high doses of Vitamin E, aspirin, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (ibuprofen) as these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site.

Are there people that should not have a dermal filler treatment?
Treatment is not recommended for people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, under 18 years of age, or have a bleeding disorder. If you suffer from cold sores, discuss this with the clinician before treatment.

I’d like to discuss this further before scheduling a treatment …
At Evolutions we always offer a complimentary consultation so that you may have your questions answered and feel confident in your decision.  Schedule a consultation by calling 805.687.0212 or completing our online consultation form.

Education at Evolutions Medical Spa: Dermal Fillers 101

juvederm_womanMark your calendars! On Wednesday, April 21st, Evolutions Medical Spa Santa Barbara will be featuring Dermal Fillers 101 – one of Evolutions Medical Spa’s most popular events of the year!

 

    • What can dermal fillers do for me? Dermal fillers are the fastest way to look more youthful. As we age, the creases and wrinkles in our face deepen and often we lose volume. Dermal fillers can add volume to those places and enhance the volume in other areas such as the lips and cheeks.

 

  • How? Dermal fillers contain naturally-occurring substances in your body and are injected under the skin.

Come learn more about dermal fillers in Santa Barbara by cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins. Bonus! Dr. Perkins will also share how you can look 10 years younger in just two hours, without plastic surgery – from his newest procedure – The Layered Liquid Lift.

Education at Evolutions Medical Spa: Fillers 101
1309 State Street, Santa Barbara
Wednesday, April 21, 2010
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Refreshments, raffles, prizes and exclusive specials for attendees.
