juvedermYou may not recognize your reflection because you have a more “mature” looking face due to frown lines, sad looking eyes or thinner lips. Perhaps your earlobes or hands are  suffering from signs of aging, too. Luckily, injectable dermal fillers can help you achieve looking younger without the cost of cosmetic surgery. If you are considering scheduling an appointment at the North Scottsdale Laser and Skin Care Clinic, here are four ways we utilize to reduce the appearance of wrinkles from your face and other areas of your body:


Juvederm is a natural looking hyaluronic dermal filler approved by the FDA to last up to 12 months. Unlike some injectable fillers, Juvederm is safe and effective on people with darker skin.
Areas Commonly Treated:

  • Cheeks
  • Fine lines along the upper lip
  • Folds from the nose to the mouth
  • Lines from the corners or around the mouth towards the chin


Perlane is also a hyaluronic dermal filler used to correct the shape of your face and to diminish larger folds, scars, creases and deep wrinkles
Areas Commonly Treated:

  • Worry, smile and smoker’s lines
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Designating definition to lip borders
  • Reinvigorating hands
  • Smoothing out acne scars


Restylane is similar to Perlane. It uses hyaluronic acid as well, but the particle size in Restylane is 3-4 times smaller and used for finer lines, especially in fair skin.
Areas Commonly Treated:

  • Thin lips
  • Facial folds and wrinkles
  • Dark or thinning skin underneath the eyes
  • Facial features where prominence is desired


Radiesse is a dermal filler made of  calcium-based microspheres also found in bone and teeth. It can last 12 months or longer. The result is a cream-like texture, which is naturally suitable for the body.
Areas commonly treated:

  • Deep wrinkles
  • Ear lobes
  • The forehead
  • Contouring and shaping the nose, cheeks and chin
  • Revitalization of the neck and hands
