Daytime Alabama: Non-Surgical Skin Procedures

There are numerous facial injectable products available which can be used to restore the facial volume and fill out wrinkled or uneven areas of the face. Dermatology & Laser of Alabama is on the cutting edge of the latest fillers available. For the safety of her patients, Dr. Sawyer uses only FDA approved products on her patients, including Restylane, Perlane, JuvedermTM, Radiesse, Sculptra, and numerous other fillers. These fillers have demonstrated predictable long term results, minimal bruising, swelling and redness after treatment.

During your cosmetic consultation, Dr. Sawyer can recommend which soft tissue filler or fillers can achieve the enhancement you desire. The exact injectable or filler used is individualized for each patient, based on the location of injection, the desired effect, and longevity. As well, for optimized results Dr. Sawyer personally performs all injectable treatments herself. Her advanced fellowship training in dermatologic surgery and extensive education and knowledge of the facial muscles and structure are to your advantage.

The result you should see is a restoration of younger, smoother facial contours without an invasive surgical procedure. Facial filler treatments may be used alone or in conjunction with a resurfacing procedure, such as a chemical peel or laser treatment, and is often combined with BOTOX for a synergistic result.

Radiesse is a synthetic injectable filler that reduces wrinkles, creases, and scars by augmenting the body’s natural collagen supply. Composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in a biocompatible gel, Radiesse is made from the same minerals found in our bones.

Radiesse is used to fill deep wrinkles and facial lines and can be used on many areas of the body; the most common include nasolabial folds, depressed scars, and mouth corners (oral commissures).

Results are visible immediately after injection and as Radiesse breaks down, it stimulates collagen growth in the skin and the resulting benefits last for up to one year.
