Restylane, Collagen and Fat Injection Richmond
Restylane is recently FDA approved for the nasolabial folds (laugh lines). Restylane is thought to last up to 6 months at which time repeated injections are recommended to maintain the desired appearance. Restylane is synthetically made hyaluronic acid and does not require a skin test.
Collagen Replacement Therapy is FDA approved and proven safe and effective for over 20 years. Collagen has been used in over 1 million treatments. Collagen is commonly use to plump up the lips or to fill up the deepened laugh lines at the corners of the mouth. We offer a free skin test and if you are not allergic to bovine collagen you can receive 1cc of Zyplast (bovine collagen) for $330.
If you don’t have time to wait for a skin test result (4 weeks) you can have the new FDA approved human collagen called Cosmoplast. Cost is $330 per 1cc syringe.
Fat injections are much more costly because it requires a small surgical procedure to harvest a small amount of a patient’s fat and reinject it into the desired site. Fat injection recovery is longer due to natural swelling and is most effective to the nasolabial folds (laugh lines) and less effective for the lips and lip lines.
Introduced 18 years ago, Zyderm and Zyplast injectable collagen implants have set the standard in filler materials for smoothing facial lines, wrinkles and scars and in providing lip border definition. Treatments supplement the skin?s natural collagen, require minimal procedure time, and provide immediate results. Today, more than one million people worldwide have been treated with Zyderm or Zyplast collagen implants.
Zyderm and Zyplast implants are composed of highly purified bovine dermal collagen that is dispersed in phosphate buffered physiological saline containing 0.3% lidocaine.
Zyderm and Zyplast implants are indicated for the correction of contour deformities of the dermis in non-weight bearing areas. These implants have been employed successfully in many areas of the body to correct distensible acne scars; atrophy from disease or trauma; glabellar frown lines; nasolabial folds; rhinoplasty, skin graft or other surgically-induced irregularities; and other soft tissue defects.
