Dermal fillers can help transform a face defined by the signs of aging into one that radiates youth. At South Bay Aesthetics Plastic Surgery Center in Torrance, CA, we use the most popular fillers to reverse the signs of aging and even enhance some facial features to help patients feel more confident in their appearance.
The Juvederm Collection
The Juvederm Collection is a popular line of fillers made by the same company that produces Botox, SkinMedica, CoolSculpting, and other cosmetic products and devices. This line has fillers that can target every area of the middle and lower half of the face to create a well-rested and younger-looking appearance.
These hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are made of a crystal clear gel formula containing lidocaine, a numbing agent that enhances patience and comfort during and after the injection process. These fillers can fill hollow areas, lift sagging skin, augment the lips, improve the chin profile, help patients achieve a younger-looking appearance, and increase their confidence.
Voluma is one of the longest-lasting hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers available. This dermal filler is specifically designed to treat two areas of the face: the cheeks and the chin. Injections into the cheeks sculpt and contour the middle half of the face and restore lost volume that’s disappeared with the aging process.
Voluma also improves the appearance of flattening or sagging cheeks and fills hollow areas. Once injected with Voluma into the cheeks, patients can enjoy results for two years or longer. Voluma can also improve the appearance of the chin profile to create new and improved facial contours. If you use Voluma to improve the appearance of your chin, you can expect the results to last at least one year.
Vollure is a dermal filler that can smooth smile lines of different severities around the mouth, including facial folds, like nasolabial folds. Patients begin to notice these lines forms as a result of the aging process, and they can run from the nose’s outer corners to the mouth’s outer corners. The right amount of Juvederm Vollure will help patients achieve smooth and younger-looking skin for up to 18 months.
Ultra Plus is another dermal filler from this collection, specifically designed to treat moderate to more severe lines and wrinkles around the mouth. It has a thicker consistency to address the more advanced signs of aging, and once treated with this dermal filler, you can expect to enjoy results for six to twelve months.
Volbella is a popular dermal filler that can augment lips by adding natural-looking volume to the area. It can also smooth perioral lines above the upper lip, also known as lipstick lines or smoker’s lines. Whether patients want to add volume to one or both of their lips, this filler is an excellent solution for those who have experienced age-related volume loss or were born with naturally thin lips. Injections into this area can last up to a year post-treatment.
Juvederm Ultra is another lip filler from this collection that can add natural and long-lasting volume to the lips so patients can achieve their ideal aesthetics or combat the aging process. Once injected into the lips with the appropriate amount of product, you can expect to enjoy results for up to one year.
The Restylane Collection
The Restylane Collection has become a popular go-to for patients who want to use dermal fillers to target aging or aesthetic concerns and achieve natural-looking results. This line of fillers includes six options that patients can use on their own or combine to reach their aesthetic goals.
Kysse is a popular and natural-looking lip filler from the Restylane collection. They can add natural-looking volume to the lips while improving lip texture and color. Patients who use this filler can expect natural-looking results and continue to make a full range of expressions. The results last for 12 months post-treatment.
Silk is another lip filler that can help patients augment their lips and correct aesthetic imperfections. It can smooth lines and wrinkles around the mouth, also known as perioral lines. This lip filler lasts approximately six months post-treatment.
Lyft is a dermal filler from Restylane that can treat volume loss in the face and the hands. It’s designed to inject natural volume into the backs of the hands and the cheeks. Patients can expect results to last up to six months when Lyft is injected into the hands, up to 12 months when injected into the cheeks, and up to six months when used to treat facial folds.
Refyne is a dermal filler specifically designed to treat laugh lines of different degrees around the mouth. Patients can expect results last one year after initial treatment.
Restylane is the original filler from this collection that can be used to treat facial folds and lines around the mouth, including nasolabial folds, and it can also augment the lips. Patients will enjoy long, lasting results post-treatment for up to 18 months.
Define is a specialized dermal filler that uses XpresHAn technology to smooth laugh lines around the mouth. It can also improve the appearance of the chin, and post-treatment results will last up to one year.
Restylane Contour is a specialty cheek filler that can help patients achieve or restore natural volume in the cheeks. It’s a long-lasting dermal filler, and patients can expect natural-looking results that last a year or longer.
The RHA Collection
The RHA collection is growing in popularity because it provides patients with an alternative to neuromodulators for treating expression lines. Neuromodulators are anti-wrinkle injectables that work on the muscular level to relax muscles and smooth wrinkles.
However, the RHA collection is the first-ever FDA-approved line of dermal fillers that can effectively and safely smooth the expression lines on the upper half of the face and target volume loss. These fillers treat expression lines and other signs of aging resulting from volume loss on the lower and middle half of the face.
RHA Redensity can improve the appearance of moderate to deep perioral lines around the mouth. It can naturally and effectively smooth the signs of aging around the lips to promote a younger-looking appearance.
RHA 2 is designed to treat expression lines on the upper half of the face, including frown lines. It can also smooth facial folds resulting from volume loss around the mouth.
RHA 3 can also smooth expression lines on the upper half of the face, specifically those that are more moderate to severe. It can also smooth nasolabial folds around the mouth.
RHA 4 is designed to treat more severe expression lines and the advanced signs of aging that often affect the appearance of the cheeks.
Sculptra is a collagen-stimulating filler, also known as a biostimulator. This filler works differently than our hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers because it contains an active ingredient called poly L-Lactic acid that stimulates the body to grow new collagen upon injection. The active ingredient is suspended in a gel formula, which delivers some initial results.
Still, the best and longest-lasting result will appear in the weeks following treatment as your body responds to the presence of poly L-Lactic acid below the skin’s surface and grows new collagen in the area.
How It Works
As a biostimulator, Sculptra is designed to force the body to create its natural filler, collagen, to resolve certain aesthetic imperfections, primarily the signs of aging. It’s designed to improve the appearance of volume loss on the lower half of the face, including nasolabial folds, smile lines, and marionette lines. Once injected with Sculptra, you’ll see the best results within a few weeks of your initial treatment, and your results can last two years or longer post-injection.
