Facial Fillers

Everyone wishes they could keep their youthful looks. Nobody likes to see tell-tale wrinkles appear. But, what can you do to keep your skin looking young? Collagen Replacement Therapy offers you a way to replace your skin's natural youthful suppleness instantly. At Arizona Vein & Skin Rejuvenation we offer the following fillers: SculptraT, RestylaneŽ, and the collagen fillers.

What is Sculptra™?
SculptraT has been clinically proven to be an effective, well-tolerated and long-lasting treatment for the signs of facial lipoatrophy (fat loss). SculptraT is a synthetic injectable material known as "poly-L-lactic acid." Poly-L-lactic acid is biocompatible (a material that does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body). Poly-L-lactic acid has been widely used for many years in dissolvable stitches, soft tissue implants, and other types of implants.

How does Sculptra™ work?

SculptraT is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. SculptraT provides a gradual increase in skin thickness. Visible results will appear within the first few treatment sessions.

How many treatments are required and how long do results last?
The appropriate number of treatment sessions and the amount of SculptraT needed at each session will vary by patient. Patients with severe facial fat loss may require 4 to 6 week apart treatment sessions. In most patients the treatment results can last for up to 2 years after the first treatment session. However, touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired effect.

It is in your best interest to have a medical doctor administer these injections. Please contact us for more information.

What is RestylaneŽ?
RestylaneŽ is a safe and natural cosmetic filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin. It is injected into the skin to correct a variety of wrinkles and to enhance the appearance of the lip border. RestylaneŽ is currently approved in the U.S. for the treatment of facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, which are the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth. RestylaneŽ has been used safely by dermatologists and plastic surgeons since 1996 in more than 1.5 million treatments in over 60 countries.

RestylaneŽ is the first and only cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid is a crystal-clear gel called NASHAT, or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid, that is composed of a natural substance that already exists in the human body. Hence, NASHAT is biodegradable and completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid.

Unlike hyaluronic acid-based products that are made from rooster combs, RestylaneŽ is non-animal-based. This quality virtually eliminates any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction.

How does RestylaneŽ work?
RestylaneŽ maintains its shape using the body's own moisture. The hyaluronic acid in RestylaneŽ is hydrophilic or "water loving." As hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide lasting results.

How many treatments are required and how long do results last?
RestylaneŽ is proven to deliver a longer lasting effect than traditional collagen, so treatments are a few times per year. Studies have shown that the average treatment results last six months or even longer. The unique NASHAT technology helps maintain the cosmetic effect until the injected material is nearly gone. The procedure is simple and convenient, and results are practically instantaneous.
