Restylane and Radiesse


Remove wrinkles with Restylane and Radiesse


Restylane® & Belotero® are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. They are a very safe and effective way to correct wrinkles, fill out facial folds and enhance lips. The material in these fillers is almost identical to that naturally found in the body. Results are instant and can last anywhere from 6-12 months, depending on which product is used and location of the treatment. There may be some slight bruising or swelling but recovery time is minimal. Saying “Goodbye” to those pesky wrinkles and folds is easier than you think.

lyft2Restylane LYFT® is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide fullness to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).

Over time, the natural fat surrounding the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in a reduction of volume, sagging skin and more prominent wrinkles. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a natural-looking appearance.

silkRestylane SILK® First and Only FDA Approved Filler Indicated for Lip Enhancement and Treatment of Perioral Lines(vertical upper lips lines/smokers lines).

The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.

belotero-bannersBelotero® is perfect for filling those superficial etched lines in the skin. Of all the HA fillers currently on the market, Belotero is the least hydrophillic, which results in the least swelling. This makes it Dr. Gallo’s #1 choice for filling hollows under the eyes.

header_radiesse1 RADIESSE®  wrinkle filler works in partnership with your body to stimulate your own natural collagen for longer lasting results.   Because of its thicker calcium-based formulation, RADIESSE® works very well in people with moderate to deep facial folds and loss of facial volume. Over time, your body absorbs these tiny calcium-based microspheres and leaves behind only your own natural collagen.   Recovery time  is minimal.  There is usually a bit more swelling with  RADIESSE® than the hyaluronic acid fillers due to the thickness of the product.  The beautiful results last a year or more in most patients.

How Is The Procedure  Performed?  Always keeping up on the latest aesthetic medical advances, Dr. Gallo is the FIRST one in the state to be trained using the blunt tipped micro-cannula technique dermal fillers, since it’s inception in 2010. This revolutionary procedure allows for minimal pain, bruising or trauma to the underlying vessels, as is associated with traditional needle injections.  Patients that have had needle injections in the past are simply amazed !  And many can go out that same day without a mark on their face and minimal swelling.

How Much Filler Will I Need? The answer to this question is mostly dependent on the age of the patient and desired outcome…but typical dermal filler treatments may include 1 vial split in half under each eye to fill hollowing, 2 vials per cheek area( 1 vial each side) to restore lost volume,  2 vials per nasolabial fold( 1 vial each side) and 1 vial to fill vertical upper lip lines.

Over time, most patients require less product and can go longer between touch ups, as skin around the Restylane and Radiesse produces it’s own natural collagen.  Dr. Gallo can help you develop the best cost effective maintenance schedule to keep you looking your best.
