Injectable fillers are extremely popular in Los Angeles, because they are a simple way to reduce signs of aging or to augment and rejuvenate areas such as the lips, cheeks and jawline without surgery. Choosing a qualified plastic surgeon is the best way to ensure you will achieve excellent results with fillers. Dr. Ourian is known to provide arguably the best fillers Los Angeles patients can obtain.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectables used to soften signs of aging or augment areas of the face without surgery. Most fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, but other formulas are also available. Dr. Ourian offers three types of dermal fillers in Beverly Hills: Juvederm, Restylane, and Sculptra.
AT A GLANCE
What is Juvéderm?
Juvederm is a filler made of hyaluronic acid, a substance this is naturally found in our bodies. Dr. Ourian’s Juvederm Los Angeles procedure can be used to add volume to the cheeks, fill in wrinkles or fine lines around the nose and mouth, non-surgically augment the lips, or be used in a non-surgical liquid rhinoplasty. The Juvederm product line includes several slightly varying formulas suited to these different purposes and areas of the face. Some of the finer and thinner Juvederm products can be used as an under-eye filler, while some of the more viscous Juvederm products, such as Juvederm Voluma, can be used as a cheek or chin filler.
What is Restylane?
Like Juvederm, Restylane is also made of hyaluronic acid. It is used to smooth and soften wrinkles, including lines around the mouth, restore lost volume to the cheeks, enhance the lips, and minimize dark circles around the eyes. Restalyne also offers a variety of different product lines, which are used for different purposes in the face, including jawline contouring.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a unique cosmetic injectable product which stimulates collagen production using Poly-L-lactic acid, the same ingredient used in dissolvable stitches. Because Sculptra stimulates collagen production, results from this product take more time to be noticed, but at the same time, tend to be longer-lasting compared to other injectables. Sculptra is primarily used to restore lost volume and fat loss in the face due to aging or other factors. However, it can also be used to augment areas of the body, such as the buttocks. Dr. Ourian uses the product for the Sculptra Butt Lift.
Who is a Good Candidate for Beverly Hills FIllers
Most patients who have some signs of aging or just simply wish to augment areas of the face such as the cheeks, nose, jawline or lips make good candidates for fillers as long as they are generally healthy. Before filler injections, patients should avoid taking blood thinners or smoking. Dr. Ourian will evaluate your overall health and your cosmetic goals to determine whether fillers are the best treatment option for you.
How are Beverly HIlls Filler Injections performed?
After determining that you are a good candidate for Beverly Hills fillers, Dr. Ourian will sterilize the treatment area and may apply a topical numbing cream so you are comfortable throughout the injection process. The injections are then carefully made according to your goal results. Injectable fillers can be completed in about 15-30 minutes. Patients may experience some swelling or bruising at the injection site, but are otherwise able to return to their normal routine as soon as the appointment is complete.
Filler results are not permanent, because the body naturally metabolizes the product over time. However, patients can receive maintenance injections if they choose. Dermal filler results typically last about anywhere from 9 to 24 months on average, depending on the type of filler that is used.
How Much Do Filler Injections Cost in Beverly Hills?
The cost of your fillers in Beverly Hills will vary depending on the specific product used, the amount of product used, the treatment area, and other factors. The average filler session costs between $300 and $1,800. Dr. Ourian will explain the estimated cost for your treatment after a complimentary consultation.
