Collagen is what gives the skin its volume, flexibility and strength. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. The loss of elasticity and volume show up as wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity—resulting in a less youthful appearance.  Each substance brings subtle, distinctive benefits—some provide longer-lasting results, others allow for more precision with fine lines, and still others can gradually bring the face into better balance, creating an overall rejuvenated appearance.*

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BELLAFILL

 

Youthful Looks that Last Years – Not Months!

*


Bellafill offers a new level of filler rejuvenation. In addition to immediately adding volume to smooth away facial wrinkles, Bellafill helps your skin re-create its own firmer structure. Resulting in beautiful, younger-looking skin and lasting results!*

 

If you are ready to stop constantly filling and start replacing, Bellafill may be right for you.

 

What is Bellafill?

Bellafill is an FDA approved dermal filler for the correction of facial wrinkles known as nasolabial folds or smile lines. Bellafill replaces lost volume in the skin below the wrinkle for results that are immediate and lasting. The injectable gel is comprised of 80% purified collagen and 20% PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres (add Lemperle reference).*

 

Bellafill’s unique difference from other fillers is that it keeps on working! It restores rather than just fills for natural enduring results. In clinical studies, efficacy was observed out to 12 months.*

 

What to Expect with a Bellafill Treatment

Treatment with Bellafill is very similar to treatment with conventional injectable fillers. The main difference is that Bellafill requires a skin test to identify those patients who may have an allergy to bovine collagen or lidocaine. Lidocaine is provided to minimize discomfort during injection.*

 

First Appointment: Complimentary consultation and your skin test. You will meet with Dr. Sharlow who will assess the areas to be treated. The amount of Bellafill required will depend on the severity of the lines/wrinkles being addressed and will be recommended to you at this time. During the skin test a small amount of purified bovine collagen gel is injected in the forearm to ensure you have no adverse reactions to bovine collagen and/or lidocaine.*

 

Second Appointment: Four weeks later, if there is no adverse reactions to the initial test, you are ready for treatment! Upon injection, you will usually see immediate improvement to lines and wrinkles.*

 

Third Appointment: A follow-up is suggested at 4-6 weeks. This also allows you to decide if you would like to further enhance or correct the area.*

 

What’s the downtime?

Bellafill contains lidocaine to lessen the discomfort from the procedure. With proper placement, Bellafill cannot be felt after treatment. You may see immediate results in wrinkle correction and can return to your normal daily activities after the procedure.*

 

As with any injectable filler, you may experience temporary pain, swelling and reddening at the treatment site. These side effects are usually gone within a few days. Occasionally, there is transient bruising that typically disappears within 7 days.*

 

You can return to normal activities right away!*

RADIESSE

 

Radiesse is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres that are injected into target areas, creating a “scaffold” effect. This means that it stimulates and supports collagen production below the skin to help rebuild your skin’s foundation.*

 

Our patients love that Radiesse gives them instant results.*

 

What areas respond best to Radiesse?

Radiesse can be used to treat:

 • Sunken cheeks

 • Nasolabial folds (deep folds between the nose and mouth)

 • Marionette lines (folds around the corners of the mouth)

 • Other facial wrinkles

 • Depressed scars and contour deficiencies

 

How long does Radiesse last?

Because Radiesse stimulates natural collagen production, results can be seen for a year or more. Each person is different though so be sure to discuss your expectations with Dr Sharlow before choosing Radiesse.*

 

Will my Radiesse results appear natural?

Radiesse treatments leave your face looking natural and refreshed. This dermal filler stimulates natural collagen production beneath the skin, which will leave you with a natural, healthy glow.*

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC

 

Juvéderm Voluma XC, the latest product in the Juvéderm family line, is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults.*

 

How does Juvéderm Voluma XC work?
Juvéderm Voluma XC is an injectable gel that uses hyaluronic acid to restore volume. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin that diminishes with age.*

 

What else to know about Juvéderm Voluma XC?

 • Clinically proven to last up to 2 years with optimal treatment.*

 • After 24 hours, you should be able to resume your normal activities.*

 • Side effects are moderate and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.*

 

What is the difference between Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Voluma XC?
Juvéderm XC is a smooth gel filler that targets fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose area. Juvéderm Voluma XC targets volume loss and sagging skin in the mid-face, specifically in the cheek area.*

 

Both work to reduce the signs of aging and are quick, in-office treatments that have little to no discomfort or downtime associated with them.*

BELOTERO BALANCE

 

Belotero, although approved for the treatment of smile lines, is unique in its use for fine lines. It can be used to gently enhance lip lines, crow's feet and other fine lines on various parts of the face. It is unique in its ability to intersperse with the skin's own collagen and the thin nature of the product is ideal for finer lines and in sensitive areas like under the eyes and lip lines (smoker's lines). It does not cause darkening on the skin (known as the Tyndall effect) when injected superficially in these areas.*

 

Clinically proven safe and effective, Belotero:

 • Helps smooth moderate-to-severe etched-in facial lines and wrinkles.*

 • Feels natural to the touch.*

 • Maintains normal movement and facial expressions.*

 • Is a quick, easy treatment that provides immediate, noticeable results.*

 • Requires little to no downtime.*

 

How soon can I expect results?

Immediately upon treatment, Belotero helps smooth etched-in lines and wrinkles, such as vertical lip lines above and around your lips.*

 

How long does it last?

Individual results may vary, but Belotero may last about 6 months or more.  Some factors that affect how long it lasts are the amount of product used and the injected area. In areas that experience a lot of movement due to eating, talking, and smiling, the product may not last as long as other less active areas.*

 

Are there any side effects?

Belotero is FDA-approved and has undergone testing in a clinical study to demonstrate its safety. Hyaluronic acid products for wrinkle correction have been available for a long time and used in thousands of treatments.*

 

Just like any injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve on their own.*

 

How long is the recovery time?

There is very little to no downtime associated with a BELOTERO BALANCE treatment. In fact, most patients return to their normal, daily activities right after their visit. Every patient is unique, so be sure to discuss your plans during a consultation with your healthcare provider.*
