Fillers Q & A
What are fillers?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that are designed to reverse one of the most common signs of aging: loss of facial volume.
Your skin uses a protein called collagen to stay plump and elastic. Over time, your body produces less collagen. As collagen networks deteriorate within your skin, your skin thins and sags.
This leads to a wide range of aesthetic concerns, including:
- Deep nasolabial folds
- Thin lips
- Sagging jowls
- Hollow cheeks
- Lip lines
Fortunately, dermal fillers are specifically designed to restore volume wherever your face needs it, smoothing lines, plumping the skin, and giving you back your youthful appearance.
How do dermal fillers work?
Your Encino Park Family Health & Wellness Clinic provider injects carefully measured amounts of the dermal filler into targeted places on your face.
They use hyaluronic acid-based fillers to give you the most natural-looking, long-lasting results possible. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps restore facial volume and increase skin hydration.
Encino Park Family Health & Wellness Clinic offers two hyaluronic acid dermal filler lines: Juvéderm® and Restylane®.
The Juvéderm line includes:
- Juvéderm Ultra XC for fuller lips
- Juvéderm Vollure™ XC for reduced facial folds
- Juvéderm Ultra Plus for reduced wrinkles
- Juvéderm Volume® XC for greater cheek volume
- Juvéderm Volbella® XC for fuller lips
The Restylane line includes:
- Restylane Lyft™ for greater cheek volume
- Restylane Defyne™ for reduced nasolabial folds
- Restylane Sylk for fuller lips
- Restylane Refyne™ for reduced marionette lines
When you talk with your Encino Park Family Health & Wellness Clinic about your cosmetic goals, they hand-pick the right dermal filler or fillers to create the look you want.
What’s the process for getting a dermal filler?
Dermal fillers are often called a lunchtime procedure because the treatment itself usually takes around 15 minutes and you can continue on with your day immediately after. The needles used to inject the filler are extremely small to maximize your comfort during treatment.
The results of dermal fillers usually last 3-12 months. Whenever your results start to fade, you can head back to Encino Park Family Health & Wellness Clinic for a quick touchup treatment to keep your face looking full and youthful.
