RHA by Revance
First injectable filler of its kind to work with the dynamic movements of the face. RHA, a dermal filler, made of minimally processed hyaluronic acid, mimics the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in our bodies, making the repetitive day-to-day facial expressions look more natural.
Radiesse is a dermal filler used as a more long-term approach to correct areas on the face and hands. It fills areas of fat loss, wrinkles, deep folds around the mouth and nose and plumps aging hands. It uses calcium microspheres, CaHA —which naturally occurs in our bodies, to stimulate collagen production. Once the CaHA does its job, it’s reabsorbed into the body, leaving collagen in its place. The results can last up to two years.
Sculptra stimulates collagen production in patients with facial fat loss, sunken cheeks, deep wrinkles and folds. Sculptra is made of PPLA, poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material safely compatible with our bodies. Patients may see an immediate difference in their appearance, but full results usually take a few months. Sculptra can last up to two years.
Kybella Injectable to Reduce Under Chin Fat
Kybella injections (although not a dermal filler) treats stubborn fat under the chin that won’t go away. This non-surgical technique uses deoxycholic acid — a synthetic material similar to one our bodies make, to destroy fat cells giving patients a slimmer facial profile.
Dermal fillers vary in formulation and indicated treatment areas. Only a fully trained board-certified cosmetic surgeon is qualified to administer dermal filler injectables.

There’s virtually no downtime after fillers. You can return to most of your daily activities right away. However, avoid touching or pressing on the injection area, rigorous workouts and sleeping on your face. Sleep on your back with your head propped on a pillow for at least 2 nights.

The FDA has approved the fillers listed above. While serious side effects are rare, you’ll want to discuss with your board-certified dermatologist before treatment.
Appointments can take anywhere from 15-60 minutes, depending on the injectables and treatment areas. Once you arrive for your appointment, you’ll be offered a numbing treatment, which takes up to 20-30 minutes to kick in.
