The doctors at FACESplusTM are internationally recognized leaders in the development and testing of wrinkle fillers. Dr. Steven Cohen along with Drs. Lemperle and Holmes developed the first Wrinkle Assessment Scale for accurate recording of wrinkle depth and analysis of treatment. This was published in the Plastic Reconstructive Surgery Journal in 2001.
Many wrinkle fillers are on the market today and more are being introduced at a very rapid rate. It is getting difficult to tell one filler from another. Often, it is like the “flavor of the week” from a patient’s perspective. Dr. Steven Cohen is a recognized authority on fillers and lectures internationally on the principles and uses of wrinkle fillers. He is available to help you decipher the differences and make an intelligent decision for your own particular concerns.
Basically, there are 3 types of fillers available today. There are temporary, longer-lasting, and permanent fillers that are made from a wide range of substances. The most widely used temporary fillers are Juvederm and Restylane.
Radience (or Radiesse) and Sculptra are longer-lasting in many cases, but not permanent. They tend to last from 6-9 months up to 2 years.
ArteFill® is a permanent filler that was recently approved by the FDA. Many patients get tired of frequent return visits for re-injection and will be thrilled to have a permanent solution. However, because of ArteFill®’s permanence, greater skill and training are required for its injection.
Other fillers that use the body’s own tissue include autogenous (your tissues) and cadaver-derived.
