As we age, our faces lose youthful volume, allowing fine lines, wrinkles and hollow areas to become more apparent. Though this is a natural part of the aging process – it doesn’t have to happen before you’re ready. Injectable fillers, also known as facial fillers, can be used to rejuvenate an aging face during a single office visit.
At our med spa in Redondo Beach, we routinely use dermal and facial fillers to help our clients take years off their appearance in an instant. What’s more, we’re often able to obtain the same lifted and youthful results of a facelift – without the cost, anesthesia, and recovery period associated with a more invasive procedure.
Types of Facial Fillers
At Marcus Medical, we’re proud to offer the following cutting-edge facial fillers in Manhattan Beach to help you accomplish your appearance goals. During your initial consultation, we will advise on which combination of these fillers will produce the precise look you desire:
Juvederm is an injectable gel designed to treat lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It continuously plumps and draws moisture to the skin, improving the look of any creases and creating a smooth and youthful facial appearance for up to one year.
Juvederm Voluma XC
As we age, the cheeks lose their youthful definition, leading to sagging skin and a weathered facial appearance. Juvederm Voluma works by restoring that lost volume for up to two years, achieving a subtle lift that was formerly only possible with a more invasive facelift.
Juvederm Volbella is a new addition to the hyaluronic acid injectable family approved by the FDA in early 2016. Hyaluronic acid is the naturally occurring substance that works to retain the moisture in the skin. It binds to water, filling in spaces between elastin and collagen fibers, plumping up the skin and giving it a more youthful appearance.
Restylane is an injectable dermal filler designed to temporarily diminish fine lines around the mouth and nose. It can be used to correct nasolabial folds, marionette lines, sagging jowls, a recessive chin, hollow cheekbones and bags under the eyes, making it a terrific filler for clients who want to rejuvenate their entire face.
With time, the natural production of collagen and elastin in the skin slows. The reduced collagen leads to less resilient facial skin, along with hollow or sunken facial areas.
Whether your lips have always been thin, or they lost volume and have become wrinkled due to the natural aging process, Restylane Silk can restore sensual fullness where you need it most. In addition, it can reduce fine lines around the mouth – achieving the soft and beautiful overall look you desire.
Formerly called Perlane, Restylane Lyft is a unique dermal filler designed specifically to restore fat and volume to the cheeks and mid-face region, achieving a smooth and contoured overall appearance.
Restylane Refyne & Defyne
Newly FDA-approved fillers, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne, provide treatment for "laugh lines" and other facial wrinkles. We provide both here at Marcus Medical in Manhattan Beach.
RHA is the only hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA-Approved for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles and folds. From this unique collection of fillers, RHA 2, 3, and 4 are effective in correcting moderate to severe dynamic facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds.
Radiesse is a non-toxic, biocompatible and non-allergenic dermal filler used to treat smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, mild jowls and nasolabial folds. It can also be used to create high cheekbones, add volume to hollow areas on the face and fill in certain scars.
Sculptra is designed to treat deep facial folds and age-related volume loss, by stimulating your body’s natural collagen production. It rejuvenates your appearance gradually and over time, while ensuring that you still look like you – only significantly younger.
Unlike BOTOX, which can also be used to treat dynamic wrinkles, the RHA Collection uses hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring component that plays an important role in skin health and vitality. So rather than limiting movement as neuromodulators do, the RHA Collection is actually resilient enough to adapt to your facial movement, giving a more natural look both while at rest and in motion. It’s actually Swiss technology that in 2020 finally became available in America only at select aesthetic practices. Among its many benefits, the RHA Collection of dermal filler is:
- Designed to seamlessly integrate and respond to facial movements and yet look natural
- Made to mirror the skin, by using hyaluronic acid very much like that naturally found in your skin
- Great for rejuvenating moisture, increasing volume and accentuating structure in your skin
- Perfect for the mid to late years where HA production naturally slows
- Backed by more than a decade of use in patients throughout Europe
