Fillers and Injectables
BOTOX® Cosmeticis a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment
that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows
in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type
approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there's a
noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows,
which can last up to 4 months. Results may vary.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum
bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown
lines between the brows to form over time.
BOTOX® Cosmeticwas approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
in 2002 for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between
the brows in people ages 18 to 65, and almost 3.3 million procedures were
performed in 2005 alone.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery ranked BOTOX® Cosmetic
as the most popular physician-administered aesthetic procedure in the United States
for the fourth year in a row (surgical and nonsurgical combined).
Restylane is an injectable gel which should always administered by a trained,
medically qualified practitioner.
Restylane enhances your natural looks by restoring your skin’s volume, creating
softness and revitalizing your appearance.
How it works
Youthful skin is rich in hyaluronic acid. As we age, the distribution and function
of hyaluronic acid in our skin gradually change, leading to the characteristic signs
Restylane gels work by enhancing your skin’s own stocks of hyaluronic acid, directly
adding volume to either soften the signs of aging or enhance your features.
The procedure is quick. It usually takes less than 30 minutes. The benefits can be
Restylane is safe
Restylane safety and efficacy is proven beyond a doubt, with robust clinical data
spanning a decade. Adverse reactions to Restylane are rare.
Restylane is natural
The uniquely produced hyaluronic acid gel of Restylane closely resembles natural
hyaluronic acid. This reduces the risk of an inflammatory reaction or other side effects.
Restylane is long lasting but not permanent
Restylane gives you flexibility and control over your looks. Because your face changes
shape as you age, you want to avoid a permanent look you might regret in years to come.
Restylane is nonanimal
In contrast to some other hyaluronic acid-based products, the hyaluronic acid in
Restylane is not extracted from animals. This means there is no risk of transmitting
disease or eliciting allergic reactions if you are sensitive to common foods, such as
chicken and eggs.
Restylane is quick and easy
Restylane treatment usually fits in well with busy lifestyles, with minimal downtime,
and gives results that can be seen instantly.

Safe and Effective Wrinkle Treatment
Radiesse is made of unique calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a
water-based gel and injected into the skin through a simple, safe, and minimally
Hundreds of thousands of patients have experienced Radiesse, and thousands of
physicians worldwide have been trained to provide Radiesse treatments. Through
years of rigorous clinical studies and independent research, Radiesse has proven
to be safe and effective. With Radiesse, you get safe, FDA-approved, clinically
How does Radiesse work?
Radiesse is gently injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle.
Radiesse stimulates the body to produce new collagen. This unique response provides
immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and provides long-lasting
and beautiful results.
Is Radiesse safe?
In years of rigorous clinical testing and use by physicians in hundreds of thousands
of patients worldwide, Radiesse has been shown to be safe and effective. In the
FDA clinical studies there were virtually no allergic reactions. There may be
some normal injection related occurrences, such as bruising, discomfort, swelling,
or redness that typically resolve on their own.
Am I a Radiesse candidate?
You may be a Radiesse dermal filler candidate if you are beginning to notice facial
wrinkles, lines, and folds. Radiesse provides immediate and long-lasting wrinkle
Why "correct" wrinkles with Radiesse?
Over time, tissue volume diminishes, leaving folds and wrinkles in several common
patterns, including the deepening of nasolabial folds, accentuated smile lines
(sometimes called "marionette lines"). Radiesse can be injected into the skin in
order to compensate for the loss of volume or to correct these areas. By stimulating
the body to produce new collagen, Radiesse provides a natural look that lasts for
a fresh, rested, healthy appearance that still looks like you.
How is a Radiesse treatment performed?
Radiesse is injected into the skin through a simple, safe, quick, and minimally
invasive outpatient procedure. Typically administered in a physician's office
with the use of a local anesthetic, Radiessse treatment requires little to no
downtime, with most patients returning to normal activities almost immediately
How soon can I expect results?
How long will the results last?
The results are immediate. Radiesse continues to deliver results as it stimulates
your body to produce new collagen. Results may last a year or more in many patients,
which may result in fewer office visits for retreatments. Since results may vary,
be sure to discuss your expectations with Dr. Cleaver.
How many treatments will I need?
Many patients will achieve their desired result after just one or two treatments.
To ensure your satisfaction with the treatment, your physician might schedule a
follow-up visit, where a touch up treatment might be recommended.
Are there any side effects?
Normal, injection-related reactions such as mild irritation, edema, swelling, itching,
discoloration, or tenderness at the injection site may occur. These conditions typically
resolve themselves within one to two days.
Could I have an allergic reaction to Radiesse?
Radiesse is biocompatible. You do not need to undergo skin allergy testing, which is
common with certain animal-based or permanent filler agents, prior to treatment.
However, if you believe you are having an allergic reaction to Radiesse, seek
medical attention immediately.
Is Radiesse permanent?
No. Treatment results are long-lasting, but not permanent. Over time the tiny
calcium-based microspheres gradually break down into calcium and phosphate
ions which are safely and naturally absorbed into your body, leaving your own
newly produced collagen in their place.
