Mid-face folds correction results: Case# 1200

Laugh lines come in two varieties: nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Laugh lines or grin lines are formed by one or more wrinkles and fine lines that we may notice even when we are not smiling. When we grin, we naturally develop laugh lines, known as dynamic lines. That is, they only occur when we produce facial emotions like smiling. These lines might aggravate when they become sagging and visible all the time, even when we keep a straight expression (static). We used Radiesse dermal filler in this case.

What are Nasolabial folds correction results?

Collagen, a skin-plumping protein that naturally declines with age, is replaced or stimulated by fillers. Hyaluronic acid is found in the majority of nasolabial fold fillers. The skin creates this transparent material naturally and aids firmness and hydration. However, these fillers replenish The collagen with little or no effect on making it. We use hyaluronic acid fillers for Nasolabial fold correction, including Belotero, Croma,  Juvéderm, and Restylane. These HA fillers have been approved for the treatment of nasolabial creases.
Dr. Alhallak, Ph.D. in Pharmacy, may recommend Radiesse, another filler containing calcium hydroxylapatite.

Dr. Alhallak may inject it directly into the prominent spots of your nasolabial folds, jawline, or cheek malar bone. These fillers will eventually disappear from your body. The injectables last anywhere from 6 to 18 months in total.

Nasolabial Folds Case 1200

Dr. Alhallak recommended Radiesse to correct the nasolabial fold after the consultation. The patient had been receiving Juvederm for over 5 years and was looking for a long-term solution to avoid a yearly trip to the Edmonton centre.

What is Radiesse

Practitioners at Albany Cosmetic and Laser center in Edmonton use Radiesse to correct wrinkles and folds on the face and hands. Radiesse is made with calcium-based microspheres to stimulate the body’s collagen for long-lasting results. Radiesse can be used in the same places as Juvederm: the cheeks and laugh lines around the mouth. Moreover, Radiesse can also be injected into the chin wrinkles, the pre-jowl fold, and the backs of the hands.

Radiesse has numerous advantages, making it an effective treatment for reversing the signs of facial aging. Its natural components eliminate the need for allergy testing because there is virtually little danger of an adverse reaction. Moreover, Radiesse contains lidocaine to reduce discomfort during the injection procedure. However, the stimulation of spontaneous collagen formation may be the most exciting advantage of Radiesse Radiesse contains calcium-based microspheres and gel that deliver immediate and long-lasting filling.

Dr. Alhallak (a Pharmacist with a Ph.D. from the University of Alberta) employs various strategies to get the greatest outcomes. Depending on the situation, it may comprise laser coagulation, filler injection (Juvederm or Restylane), and threads. Sometimes, we also inject botox into the DAO and Levator muscles.
