Aging has predictable effects, including the loss of facial volume that can cause you to look older and more tired than you feel. Fortunately, there is a simple, surgery-free solution: Hyaluronic dermal fillers.
At Rapaport Dermatology of Beverly Hills, with offices in Beverly Hills and Culver City, CA, we use top-of-the-line Juvéderm® and Restylane® products to restore facial volume.
These treatments are so quick and easy, with little to no downtime, that many clients book these appointments during their lunch break.
Targets of dermal fillers
Dermal fillers add volume virtually anywhere on your face. Some of the most common treatment areas are:
- Nasolabial folds, also known as laugh lines
- Vertical lines above lips
- Hollows under the eyes
- Depressed acne scars
- Adding volume to thin lips
- Restoring youthful volume over cheekbones
- Filling out gaunt areas such as at the temples
How dermal fillers work
Juvéderm and Restylane products are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the middle layers of your skin. Formulated into gels with different consistencies and spreading properties, the various products from each manufacturer have their applications. Think of these as an artist’s palette, with every product having a different purpose.
Some gels spread smoothly from the injection point, while others stay close to where they’re applied. A diffusing filler, for example, may be best for replenishing volume in your cheeks, while a static filler is more effective for filling lines and crevasses.
Dr. Rapaport is highly experienced in the full menu of derm fillers and makes recommendations based on each patient’s needs and goals.
Naturally occurring hyaluronic acid attracts and stores moisture in your skin, so the presence of the substance in dermal fillers contributes naturally to the components that keep skin younger.
The results of dermal filler treatments
The results can last between six months and two years, depending on the product, treatment area, and your skin. Sometimes, when the effects of your initial treatment start to fade, you’ll need less filler for subsequent applications.
No need to worry about appearing to have “work done.” Contemporary fillers and Dr. Rapaport’s expertise deliver natural results.
Don’t wear the signs of premature aging on your face. Instead, book a dermal filler consultation by calling Rapaport Dermatology at either the Beverly Hills or Culver City, CA.
