Juvederm & Restylane Fillers in LA
Deflation occurs from volume loss as collagen is decreased, fat becomes atrophied, and fluid turgor is decreased. Drooping and deflation leads to signs of facial aging such as prominent nasolabial folds (folds from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth), marionette lines (vertical lines below the mouth corners to the chin), nasojugal grooves (groove from the inner corner of the eye to the cheek), among others.
Fillers are gels that are injected into the facial tissue to smooth deeper, static wrinkles, folds, and grooves. Fillers add volume back to the deflated face which give the face a smoother look and restore youthful contours to the skin.
There are many fillers on the market, but we prefer Juvederm and Restylane. Juvederm and Restylane are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally in the human body particularly in skin and cartilage.
Natural HA provides volume and fullness to the skin, acts as a cushioning agent, and delivers nutrients. Juvederm and Restylane work well on the nasolabial fold, marionette line, and nasojugal groove.
We also use these fillers to augment thin lips. These fillers also work well on deep, static wrinkles that Botox alone may not fully soften.
Botox smoothes the dynamic component of a wrinkle while Fillers smoothes out the static component of a wrinkle. The doctors personally perform the injections.
The procedure takes 15 minutes. We numb the area with anesthetic cream or injection of anesthesia.
A tiny needle is used. Risks include swelling and bruising. The effects of Juvederm or Restylane last for about 9 to 12 months.
Juvederm or Restylane fills the grooves and wrinkles and add volume back to the deflated face which give the face a smoother look and restore youthful contours to the eyelids, lips and face. These fillers can also be used to fill in the sunken appearance after over-corrected blepharoplasty surgery.
