Facial Fillers Madison Trusts to Combat Aging Skin
You know some of us just do not believe in aging gracefully, but maybe you just don’t want to go under the knife. There are ways without surgery to smooth out some of those wrinkles and avoid that surgery all together. Joining us in the studio this morning is Kim Schuchardf, founder of Lasting Skin Solutions®, to tell us more. Good Morning.
Good Morning Christine.
Thanks for joining us.
Thank you for having me.
You know first and foremost, I think that there is some kind of a stigma about talking about plastic surgery or any kind of procedure to your face. When should you just start to say, “Well maybe I should consider some options?”
That’s a great question. I think it’s a great time to be aging, us aging baby boomers are getting a little bit older and noticing a little bit of a tired eye look, or maybe a little bit of a sagging or maybe a flattening through our cheek, and I would say in your mid to late thirties you should start thinking about “Are there subtle little things that I can do to keep looking as good as I can?”
And there are options, so you don’t have to get the gigantic facelift. And very interesting how you set up the table if we could take a wide shot of this; you set it up by time periods of how long these products work on your face. Go ahead if you would.
There are some great options out there, certainly. Botox (Madison)has been around awhile and people are a little nervous about it that it only lasts three months but it is a very important piece of the puzzle to relax those frown lines, think of expression lines.
Even your forehead, I had it done on my forehead and actually for me it lasted about four months.
Some studies are saying that you will appear 5-7 years younger if you are using Botox, so you can appear younger if you are using that. It does last 3 months but its affects can last longer. Then you can choose some things that last maybe 6-12 months depending where you use it in the face. Restylane is a filler that a lot of people have heard about. There is a new filler now called Juvederm that is made by the same company as Botox.
Now this is new, right?
This is brand new, its smooth it’s a gel that is injected in the lips you can do a nasal fold.
Those funny little lines I always see by my nose?
You can fill and plump those and make those smooth, and this is a wonderful smooth gel that may last a little longer than Restylane, but I like to see it a couple years out to know for sure. So 6-12 months. Radius lasts 12-18 months; it’s a little bit stronger filler, you can see compared to this filler it’s a gel filler, a clear gel. Nice and smooth, where as some places like the corners of your mouth you may need stronger facial fillers (Madison), a little more strength; A little stronger in consistency and hold up better as well as last 12-18 months. I like to do a cheek lift with that one, I like to put it in the cheek and contours of the face. This is a very artful form, you want to apply these fillers in a way that make you look contoured and filled out, but not too full.
Or freaky, let’s say it.
Right, cuz some of us think of some actresses who have just absolutely destroyed their faces with this stuff, and it’s usually a pulled look.
And then finally?
So Sculptra lasts 3 years which I’m very excited about, it’s a very soft fill as well; great for along the jaw line and lifting necks with it as well. And there’s even one more new one that’s just coming out on the market, was just FDA approved called Artefill that lasts 10 years.
I’ve heard about Artefill as well. Now if you would just very quickly about how much are we going to see in terms of price for each one? Let’s just say if you were going to treat one part of your face, starting with Botox.
Botox is around $350 a site. Juvederm is about $600.
Now that lasts longer than collagen, right?
Yes, twice as long, so about twice as expensive. Radiesse is $750 a little bit more, but a little longer lasting. And $900 a vile for Sculptra. So it does increase in price, and then Artefill is going to be around $2000.
