What Injectable Fillers Can Do for You
Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin looking youthful and smooth. As we age, our natural collagen structure begins to break down and wrinkles begin to appear. The good news is there are several safe, effective injectable fillers to help us retain our youthful appearance without undergoing surgery.
RADIESSE consists of the same mineral component found in teeth and bones and is used to supplement decreased collagen in aging skin. Dr. Stein uses it to smooth out wrinkles in the nasolabial folds, known as “smile lines,” and around the mouth and lips. Results last from eight months to two years.
Sculptra is made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is naturally absorbed by the body as it replaces lost collagen. It, too, corrects facial wrinkles in the nasolabial folds and the lines that frame the mouth, known as the “marionette lines.” Sculptra is unique in that it gradually and subtly restores fullness to deep facial wrinkles and folds. Results last up to two years.
Restylane and JUVÉDERM
Restylane and JUVÉDERM are made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid adds volume and binds moisture to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Both products smooth facial wrinkles and add fullness to the nasolabial folds, the lips and between the eyebrows. When injected into the lips, Restylane and JUVÉDERM restore volume for a more sensuous look. Results last for up to 9 months.

Your Consultation with Dr. Stein
It can be confusing to sort through all of your skin rejuvenation options. In your consultation, Dr. Stein will take his time to explain how each product is unique and will help you choose the filler that is best for you.
Procedure & Recovery
Dr. Stein uses a very fine needle to inject the fillers into the skin and an anesthetic can be used, if desired. Patients who make an appointment for an injectable filler can walk in, have the procedure done in less than 30 minutes, see results immediately and walk out of the office looking great. Patients who choose Sculptra can expect subtle improvements that increase gradually.
In Raleigh, JUVÉDERM and other injectable fillers work well in conjunction with laser skin resurfacing to maximize non-surgical results. Dr. Stein can also combine injectable fillers with a facelift or brow lift to enhance the results of those procedures.
