As we age, our skin’s production of collagen decreases – and with it, volume and firmness. These changes can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and the appearance of “sunken in” features. These telltale signs of aging may be a natural development over time, but they are certainly treatable. If you are looking for a non-surgical way to refresh your appearance, dermal fillers may be an option for you!
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a safe, effective, and FDA-approved method to correct the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and/or restore volume loss. At our Beverly Hills practice, we offer Restylane, Juvéderm®, and Radiesse brand fillers. Restylane and Juvéderm® brand fillers are crafted with hyaluronic acid, a molecule naturally found in the body that binds moisture. This clear-gel formula works to restore facial volume lost as a natural result of the aging process. Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxyapatite, which acts as a filler and biological stimulant to enhance the production of collagen. Many people have loved their results from their dermal filler treatments and you can, too!
How many treatments will I need?
Everyone has a very distinctive skin and aesthetic desire in mind. Our team at Ideal Face and Body in Beverly Hills, California will help you achieve your goal. Once you schedule a consultation, our skin experts will carefully examine the desired treatment areas as well as ask you a few questions regarding your medical history. We will customize a treatment plan that will help you get the best possible result. Ultimately, results will vary from person to person – some patients only require a single treatment every 6 months, and others may achieve a better result from multiple sessions with gradual volume building.
Where can I inject dermal fillers?
We offer a variety of dermal filler brands and types to suit your aesthetic goals. Some fillers like Restylane Lyft or Voluma are capable of mimicking the appearance of bone structure, and can be injected to enhance the cheekbones or smooth out an uneven nose bridge. Softer fillers, like Restylane Refyne, can be used to soften the appearance of smile lines or fill in hollow under eyes. Some dermal fillers like Radiesse can even be used to rejuvenate the hands! Filler can safely be used to enhance and rejuvenate many areas of the face and body. Dr. Sarah Yovino will discuss your cosmetic goals with you, and customize the best treatment plan for you to achieve them.
Who is a good candidate for dermal fillers?
Anyone who is looking for a non-surgical means of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles may consider this rejuvenating treatment. However, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may be referred to an alternative option. Dr. Sarah Yovino will help you decide if dermal fillers are right for you during your consultation.
