Anti Aging Injectables and Fillers
At LA Plastic Surgery & Dermatology, we understand that physical appearance can have a negative, or positive impact on how people feel about themselves. Injectable neuromodulators and dermal fillers are great non-surgical alternatives to combat the signs of aging, fine lines, and wrinkles. Dermal Fillers are essentially injectable “gel” designed to help lift, and add volume to areas that have lost contour due to aging. Filler can also be used to help fill fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, forehead, and cheeks for a more youthful appearance. Originally discovered in the 1950’s, neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport relax, and temporarily decrease muscle movement. Thus, preventing the muscle from continuing to make repetitive movements which create lines and wrinkles. Contact us today to see if injectables and dermal fillers may be right for you!
Kybella to Treat the Double Chin
Unwanted fat can appear in just about any body area, including underneath the chin. Submental fat, more commonly known as a “double chin,” can be embarrassing, even distressing, because it is nearly impossible to treat with diet and exercise. If you long for a smoother, sleeker jawline, we offer a quick and effective nonsurgical solution. Kybella is an injectable treatment recently approved by the FDA that improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fat. When injected, the product destroys fat cells in the chin area. The result is a thinner, more well-defined jaw line.
How Kybella Works
An injection of a clinical formula of Botulinum Toxin Type A, known as Botox® Cosmetic makes it possible to immobilize selected muscles of facial expression, smoothing deep expression lines and furrows, especially around the forehead and eye area.
Juvéderm® Injectable Gel
Made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body, this filler softens facial lines such as nasolabial folds, and marionette lines, and is particularly effective in plumping lips! Contains lidocaine to help reduce injection site discomfort. With optimal treatment product can last 6-9 months.
This filler relies upon calcium-based microspheres and gel to volumize and replenish areas of the cheeks, face, hands, and even ear lobes! Acting as a “scaffold” under the skin, it provides contour while stimulating your body’s natural collagen to reproduce. Clinically proven to last up to one year, or more in many patients.
Containing poly-L-lactic acid, this product helps replace lost collagen and corrects shallow, to deep facial wrinkles which appear with aging. Results are not immediate like other fillers, but appear gradually over several weeks to months. With optimal treatment product can last up to 2-years.
Containing a modified hyaluronic acid (HA) made from naturally occurring complex sugar, this product is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel specifically designed to correct lost cheek volume. It creates contour in the cheeks, while subtly lifting the sagging skin of the jowls. Also excellent in helping hide circles and volume loss under eyes. Provides natural-looking results and can last up to 2-years with optimal treatment.
Consisting of 20% PMMA Microspheres and 80% Purified Bovine Collagen, this filler provides instant correction of lines, wrinkles and loss of volume. Can produce long lasting results up to 5-7 years by stimulation and reproduction of your body’s own collagen. This product does require a skin test in advance of treatment.
