  • Smile lines, also called nasolabial folds, which run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines†, which begin at the corners of the mouth and extend down toward the chin
  • Corners of the mouth† can begin to turn downward, giving the look of a constant frown
  • Pre-jowls† that form along the jaw-line
  • Chin wrinkles†

† Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is FDA-approved for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.

Just a single treatment of Radiesse® Volumizing Filler can be all you need to make wrinkles and folds disappear.*

The Difference With Radiesse® Volumizing Filler

Once you discover what makes Radiesse® Volumizing Filler different, you'll agree that it makes an excellent choice for facial renewal. Radiesse® Volumizing Filler contains calcium-based microspheres, that once injected, act as a scaffold under the skin to provide lift. Over time, these microspheres begin to stimulate your own natural collagen to grow so results are both immediate and long-lasting.1 Results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients.2,3 Radiesse® Volumizing Filler can help you look younger, longer... naturally.

Radiesse® Volumizing Filler treatments are a quick in-office procedure at Goldsboro Skin Center in Goldsboro.

Treatments are usually completed in about 30 minutes. Because little to no downtime is required, it's likely you'll be free to return to your regular daily routine right afterwards. And because the results are immediate, you can leave the office looking more youthful and refreshed.

Facial Rejuvenation - Liquid Facelift

As we age, the face begins to lose collagen and elastin which contributes to sagging facial features. The loss of facial volume and elasticity also leads to the formation of wrinkles, lines and folds.

A Liquid Facelift is a technique for injecting advanced dermal fillers, such as Belotero®, Juvéderm®, Radiesse® and Restylane® to lift and contour facial features. A non-surgical Liquid Face Lift can be undertaken to accomplish any of the following:

  • Gentle lift of individual (or overall) facial features
  • Reduced wrinkles, creases, line or folds
  • Restoration of natural, curved facial contours
  • A more rested, energetic look
  • A friendlier smile

In some patients the goal of a non surgical Liquid Face Lift procedure is to lift the entire face. In others, the goal is to lift or contour specific facial features. For example, under eye bags and dark circles can be masked by using Liquid Facelift techniques; eyes can be opened up and lids lifted; jowls can be lifted and diminished; natural shape can be restored to flattened cheeks or temple areas; corners of the mouth can be lifted; and bumps on the nose can be hidden

A Liquid Face Lift involves the use of advanced dermal fillers, sometimes in combination with BOTOX® or Dysport®. The dermal fillers used are among a group of 2nd generation injectables that provide more enduring results than earlier products. These advanced dermal fillers includes Belotero®, Juvéderm® Ultra, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus, Radiesse®, Restylane-L® and Perlane-L® .

Each of these dermal fillers has unique attributes that work in their own special way to rejuvenate specific areas of the face. In general, dermal fillers replace lost volume in the face or help the body regenerate its own collagen. Most of the fillers, such as Belotero®, Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, Restylane-L® & Perlane-L® are comprised of natural substances produced by the body. Precisely placed, the dermal fillers can be used to lift or contour any number of facial features.

Hand Rejuvenation

The hands are often overlooked after the face has been made to look more youthful. If not addressed, they may still give away the patients age. The loss of volume on the back of the hands with age will make the veins and tendons appear much more prominent compared to the youthful hand. Fortunately, with the use of volumizing fillers such as Restylane-L®, Perlane-L® and Radiesse® we can now correct those deficits. When combined with other powerful tools such as the Fraxel Dual laser, the AlexLAZR or chemical peels the brown spots and fine lines can also be improved or eliminated.
