In order to better serve our patients and help them to look their best, we’re offering special deals on the best gel fillers available on the market today! Juvederm Juvederm is smooth gel filler that adds volume in the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin, giving you a much younger and vibrant look. Juvederm helps restore the contours in your face, and after one treatment, you can expect to see amazing results that last for at least one year. The filler is also formulated with lidocane, which is an anesthetic for the patient’s comfort during the procedure. It can also help smooth away the wrinkles around your mouth and nose, giving you a much younger look. Doctors say that it’s safe cosmetic filler that helps restore fullness in your skin (mostly in the facial area). During the procedure, the doctor injects Juvederm under your skin to help smooth away the wrinkles. After the injections, patients can return to their normal activities the same day. Following the treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising in the treated areas, however, it lasts for only one week. Radiesse The Radiesse filler is also perfect for treating deep wrinkles and lines on the facial area. As people age, the natural support structures, including collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid tend to fade over the years, resulting in lines and wrinkles in the most noticeable areas of the face. The filler is formulated with a gel and calcium microspheres. The gel acts as a filler, and the microspheres stimulate your skin to start producing collagen. Patients see immediate results after the procedure, and the filler continues to stimulate collagen production to help restore a more youthful appearance for several months afterward. Since Raidesse has a thicker consistency than other types of gels (like Juvederm and others), it offers a great solution for erasing lines and wrinkles on your face. Restylene Much like the Juvederm and Radiesse fillers, Restylene injections are ideal for adding fullness to your skin. Since the filler contains a hyaluronic gel, it acts as a natural building block to help restore the natural and youthful appearance of your skin. It consists of a hyaluronic acid gel which is a natural building block of the skin. It’s safe, and can be used to smooth out the wrinkles in several different areas of your face, including the laugh lines around your eyes. Much like BOTOX, it’s also a popular procedure for adding fullness to your lips. Perlane Also consisting of hyaluronic acid, Perlane acts as a building block for the skin. This soft, gel-like substance works as a natural filler for enhancing your lips, as well as the small lines on your face. As a natural filler, Perlane can also be used to restore the contours of your face, giving you a more youthful appearance. As the elastic and rejuvenating qualities of your skin break down, Perlane injections help restore these qualities over time. You can also receive treatments under your eyes and lips. All treatments listed above typically last up to 18 months, and Dr. Broder at Beleza Medspa is an expert when it comes to injection treatments and other cosmetic procedures.…

Are You Curious about Facial Fillers or Dermal Fillers? Facial fillers originally evolved as collagen injections.  Fillers for the face focused on smoothing major lines like the laugh lines.  Since then, our understanding of facial anatomy and aging has progressed.  We now understand that aging is more than just lines and wrinkles, but a matter of overall facial volume loss.  As we age we begin to lose fat, muscle and bone in our faces.  This is in addition to the loss of elasticity of our skin.  As as result, not only do we lose volume in our brows and cheeks, but the remaining volume begins to shift downward. Looking at a youthful face, we see most of the volume is in the upper face in the brow and cheeks.  We call this the upside down triangle.  When we look at the aged face, we notice the volume has been lost in the brow and cheeks and has shifted towards the jawline with jowling.  The triangle has been turned right side up! Dermal Fillers So our goal in facial volume restoration with face fillers is to restore some of this upper face fullness.  This will give you far more bang for the buck than just smoothing lines and wrinkles.  Dermal fillers used to fill the brow and cheeks restore youthful appearance far more than filling smile lines. Juvederm We also have many facial fillers to choose from now.  They have progressed to safer and less painful forms with the addition of local anesthetics.  There are the hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm and Restylane which are based on a natural building block of the skin.  They can be used virtually anywhere on the face and can last up to a year.  There are stimulatory synthetic dermal fillers like Radiesse.  Radiesse actually stimulates your own collagen growth and can last over a year.  The ultimate filler for the face is your own fat!  Fat transfer now offers the ability to harvest live fat cells and transfer them to your face.  These are your own cells and are very safe.  Fat is also rich with stem cells that offer the potential for even more rejuvenation.  We can now couple fat transfer with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Microneedling with PRP Facelift, to add growth factors that further stimulate stem cell growth and rejuvenation. Microcannulas The other limiting factor with facial fillers has been the need for multiple injections.  Not only is this painful, but each needle stick can cause bleeding and bruising.  We now possess new techniques with microcannulas.  These are blunt, long thin tubes that allow us to inject the dermal fillers through a single injection site.  The comfort and safety of these microcannulas is changing our use of facial fillers. The future of face fillers appears to be moving towards fat transfer and stem cells.  The dermal fillers offer a quicker alternative and are preferred for smoothing lines and wrinkles.  Fat doesn’t have the stiffness necessary to smooth most deep wrinkles, but it is great at overall volume replacement.  If you are interested in facial fillers please come in for a free consultation.  We can discuss your needs as well as all the options available. The injectors at Beleza Medspa are experts at all types of facial fillers.…
