It is common for people to feel that their wrinkles, furrows, and lip lines have literally appeared over night. These conditions are actually the result of chronic sun exposure, gravity, stress, aging and genetics. Fortunately, a number of safe and naturally-appearing injectable filler agents are available to help smooth and soften facial wrinkles and furrows. These products, which entail essentially no recovery time, are administered at Kalasthesis Plastic Surgery Practice
Hyaluronic Acid Filler is a soft and smooth injectable gel product that is administered within the deeper layers of the skin using a very fine needle. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that is present within the skin and other parts of the body.
Areas commonly treated with HA gel include the nasolabial folds, frown lines (extending down from the corners of the mouth) and lip lines. HA filler is also commonly used for lip volume enhancement. Other areas treated less commonly, but with equal efficacy, include the cheeks (for volume and wrinkles) and forehead creases.
Healthy young skin contains collagen that gives it volume, flexibility and strength. As part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity that take away the youthful appearance from your face.
RADIESSE® — For Volume and Contours
The treatment of individual wrinkles is often not enough to restore a youthful and fresh appearance. In order to counter the effects of gravity and regain a younger shape, the face needs real volume. This can be achieved with a dermal filler which also re-stimulates natural collagen production for effective and lasting volume.
Thanks to a special gel-matrix, Radiesse® volumising filler creates immediately visible results. With its fine calcium microspheres Radiesse® volumising filler stimulates the body's natural collagen formation to create long-lasting volume. The gel itself, as well as the microspheres, are completely broken down by the body over time.
Radiesse® volumising filler puts volume back exactly where it was. With gentle volumising deeper wrinkles and hollow or sagging cheeks disappear, and the natural facial contours return.
Dual effect volume formation
- Immediate effect due to elastic gel-matrix
- Long-acting effect thanks to collagen stimulation
Safe to use
- Comprehensive clinical studies confirm effectiveness and tolerance
- Ask your doctor what Radiesse® volumising filler can do for you

HA Princess results in greater longevity than other treatments due to the high level of cross-linking between the hyaluronic acid molecules in the substance. The visible results typically last 9 to 12 months. Outcomes are also enhanced by the hydrophilic, or “water attracting,” properties of the hyaluronic acid within Princess HA.
Are you looking for a quick and easy way to improve harsh-appearing frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles? BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are very safe and effective injections for smoothing and softening these areas.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are most commonly used to treat furrows or “frown lines” that appear between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead wrinkles, and the “crow’s feet” wrinkles extending out from the sides of the eyes. Less commonly, BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are used as treatments to reduce areas of excessive sweating, such as within the armpit.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are similar injections that differ slightly. The active ingredient in both is botulinum toxin Type A, but the surrounding protein structure is different in each. Dysport® tends to have a somewhat faster onset than BOTOX® Cosmetic.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® have very similar results and side effects, and both of the treatments typically maintain their effectiveness from 3 to 5 months.
The treatment concept is to soften harsh appearing wrinkles by relaxing certain facial muscles, yet maintain your normal facial expressions. The treatments are administered with very small needles into the targeted areas. There is virtually no down time and it is very rare that bruising results from treatment.
