is a safe and long-lasting treatment for the enhancement of facial features.
Ideal wrinkle reduction is achieved by replenishing your skin’s lost volume due to a reduction of your own collagen.
Upon injection, Radiesse immediately provides the volume and lift required to diminish the signs of aging through the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product.
Longer term, Radiesse
acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating the growth of your own natural collagen.
Radiesse is used to restore volume and fullness to the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, tear troughs, cheeks (as opposed to cheek implants) chin, scars as well as the hands.
On average, Radiesse lasts approximately 1 to 2 years and no pre-testing is necessary.
Due to his extensive experience and the quality of his injection techniques, Dr. Gaboriau is Associate Medical Director of Merz Aesthetics™.

Juvederm™ Ultra and Ultra Plus are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers used to restore volume and fullness to the lips and nasolabial folds, and to correct moderate facial wrinkles. Made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance already existing in the human body, Juvederm is biodegradable and completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid. Juvederm generally lasts about 6 to 9 months, and no pre-testing is necessary. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water, will help Juvederm to dissipate more slowly and last longer.
