Dermal fillers can help to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance thinning lips, treat lip wrinkles, raise brows and add volume to cheekbones or chin for a more youthful appearance. Each filler has similar applications but are made up of different substances, applied to different areas and last for different lengths of time.
Cosmetic injections are gels consisting of resorbable, colorless, naturally occurring sugars found in the human body, and that have been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for the correction of mild to severe wrinkles and folds. They work by adding volume to areas of the face, hands, and other areas of the body. Benefits of dermal fillers include the reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, and giving a smoother, youthful appearance. Treatments last from 6 to 24 months depending on the product used, and the results are natural looking, and do not affect facial expression.
El Con Health and Wellness Center offers a number of dermal fillers, and we are happy to evaluate your needs and budget, and help you make an informed decision about you next cosmetic injection experience!

How does JUVÉDERM work? Young, healthy skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid. As we age, sunlight and other environmental factors the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin. When this happens, our skin begins to lose structure and volume, creating wrinkles and loss of volume. JUVÉDERM replaces the lost hyaluronic acid the skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.

Restylane is one of our safest at El Con Health and Wellness Center —a natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume to the skin to eliminate facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Restylane is the first and only cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide moisture and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is a crystal-clear gel called NASHATM, or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is biodegradable and completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid. Restylane is proven to deliver a longer-lasting effect than traditional collagen (it tends to last about twice as long in most people).
Restylane has been used in more than one million treatments in over 60 countries to correct a variety of wrinkles and to enhance the appearance and fullness of lips.
Restylane requires no pretesting, but patients should take a few precautions before being treated. Patients should avoid using vitamin E supplements, aspirin, or any similar anti-inflammatory medication prior to the Restylane treatment, because these may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

Sculptra Aesthetic is a type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. Sculptra works gradually, helping stimulate the production of collagen at the injected site, creating a long lasting naturally youthful appearance.
VersaTM is a remarkably homogenous filler due to our advanced wet milling technology and proprietary formula. This means that our particles are uniquely spherical and uniform, providing the perfect balance between smoothness and volume. Our spherical particle shape is developed to be accepted by the body and breakdown slowly over time. For added longevity, VersaTM exclusively uses premium quality HA with a notably high molecular weight. In a recent study another popular (HA) dermal filler was shown to produce swelling 24% more often than VersaTM. Our lower rate of swelling means many patients are able to get back to their lives almost immediately after the treatment.
