Dr. Hunsaker performs the following non-Invasive procedures:
Dermalogen comes from human tissue. Since it is human tissue, it is often ideal for people who may have allergic-type reactions to collagen. It is injected under the dermis layer to add fullness to areas of the face such as the lips, cheeks and forehead.
Juvéderm® Injectable Gel
Juvéderm is an FDA-approved smooth consistency gel capable of restoring volume to the skin while smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This injection is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that adds volume and hydration. But unlike other hyaluronic acid fillers, which usually have granular consistencies, Juvéderm is easily injected into the skin and produces immediate, natural-looking results.
Patients can achieve a fuller, younger appearance while still maintaining the natural features that define who they are. Juvéderm is most effective in reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds, the lines that run from the bottom of the nose to the corner of the mouth on both sides of the face.
The results of a Juvéderm injection are visible immediately after the procedure, and will continue to improve over the next few days as any swelling and bruising subside. Results are expected to last six to nine months, but in many cases last up to year, the only hyaluronic acid filler to last that long.
Sculptra is an injectable acid used for the restoration of collagen and the correction of lipodystrophy. The benefits of Sculptra are not immediately apparent; the body slowly responds to the injection by building up collagen around the area, producing fuller, younger looking skin. After a series of injections (usually three treatment sessions) the effects can last up to two years before retreatment is needed.
The Sculptra material is absorbed into the body once it has produced its regenerative effect and does not persist in the body. The active substance is poly-L-lactic acid, an extremely safe compound that has been used in dissolvable stitches for the past ten years.
Sculptra is also an ideal choice for individuals who would like to have their skin rejuvenated but want to do so in a subtle manner. The extended time it takes for the dermis to build itself up allows for a sly transition as opposed to other methods which are apparent immediately after leaving the office.
