As we age, our faces begin to lose volume and develop wrinkles. Over time, these effects become more apparent, making many people look older than they really are. If this sounds like you, perhaps you should consider undergoing cosmetic treatment with injectable fillers.
What Are Injectable Fillers?
Injectable fillers are substances that are made out of materials that are naturally found in the body, such as hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite. Using a very fine needle and the steady hand of an experienced cosmetic professional, these substances are directly injected into specific areas around the face to provide immediate improvement for fine lines and wrinkles.
Injectable fillers can do the following:
Eliminate brow creases
Diminish crow’s feet
Restore facial fullness
Reduce smile lines
Fill in scars
What We Offer
Our La Jolla practice only offers fillers that are approved by the FDA and non-allergenic, which ensures that our patients receive the safest and most effective results possible.
FDA-approved since 2006, this filler is made of hyaluronic acid. JUVÉDERM® is typically used to restore fullness to the cheeks and diminish creases around the mouth. It is also used to add volume to the lips.
FDA-approved since 2006, RADIESSE® consists of calcium hydroxyl microspheres that are suspended in water gel. This filler is regularly used to fill in lines, nasolabial folds, and minor scars. As an added benefit, RADIESSE® stimulates collagen growth over time.
FDA-approved since 2003, this filler is also derived from hyaluronic acid. Restylane® is commonly used to provide volume in the cheeks and increase the fullness of the lips.
FDA-approved since 2011, this filler is made of a less viscous form of hyaluronic acid. In most instances, BELOTERO BALANCE® is used to correct fine lines around the eyes (crow’s feet) and around the mouth.
