Dermal Filler Services:
Collagen is known as Zyderm, Zyplast, Cosmoderm or Cosmoplast. Collagen was FDA approved in 1978 and was used exclusively until 2002 when Restylane was introduced and became the dermal filler of choice. Today collagen is rarely used due to the cost and short term ( 3 months) duration. When it is used it is best for fine lines around the mouth. $400 and up.
Hyaluronic Acids known as trade names are Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Perlane®, Hylaform®, and Captique®. These are good for vertical lip lines, lip fillers, marionette lines and nasolabial folds. They last about six months. $650 & up.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite-Radiesse® once known as Radiance® is a semi-permanent filler used in the nasolabial folds. It is also used for marionette lines, forehead lines, correcting nasal irregularities and scars. It lasts about one year. $750
Poly-L-Lactic Acid-Sculptra® is the filler used for areas of volume loss, jowls, nasal labial folds, marionette lines and scars. This filler actually stimulates collagen and effects last up to two years but may require more than one session. $800 & up.
