Sculptra and Radiesse are alternative injectables designed to stimulate collagen growth to smooth wrinkles and restore lost volume. These work with your body’s natural supply of collagen, leaving natural and long-lasting results (2-3+ years).
Thread Lifts are a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional surgical facelift. This procedure immediately lifts the skin using ‘threads’ of filler like material, but also promotes long-term collagen production which gradually restores volume.
Bellafill is a collagen-based filler that reduces the appearance of acne scars and is likely permanent.
