MedBeautyLA is proud to serve as the most trusted practice for facial filler in downtown Los Angeles. Our small team of expert injectors are known for their experience as well as their artful aesthetic eye.
Facial filler is most commonly used for restoring a more youthful appearance and increasing facial symmetry. That being said, we use filler in our practice to address many aesthetic concerns, including:
- Enhancing your natural lip shape
- Adding lost volume to the mid-face
- Filling in nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and other facial creases
- Plumping the skin to smooth out wrinkles
- Fixing earlobes stretched or torn by heavy earrings
- Filling in acne and chickenpox scars
- Contouring the cheeks or chin without surgery
- Straightening your nose or nostrils (also known as a non-surgical rhinoplasty)
- Evening out and strengthening the jawline
- Restoring sunken temples due to age
- Rejuvenating aging hands
How Do I know Which Filler Is Right For Me?
Your provider will assess your goals and facial structure in order to create the most effective filler plan for your specific face. Some clients will require firmer fillers to address corrections on the nose or jawlines, and others will require softer, more flexible filler to mimic softer tissue. There is no one-size fits all filler because every patient is different.
The Juvéderm® Family filler in downtown los angeles
Juvéderm offers one of the best-known collections of dermal fillers on the market. Their versatile line is formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA), which plumps the face to create volume. Each member of this family of injectable HA gels has a slightly different consistency.
This classic formulation of Juvéderm is extremely versatile. Juvéderm is used for nonsurgical rhinoplasty, filling in mild-to-moderate wrinkles and creases around your mouth and nose, and creating dramatic lip augmentations. Juvéderm lasts about 6 months in the lips and up to a year or more in facial creases.
Thicker than Juvéderm, Vollure is perfect for filling in deeper wrinkles and folds. Vollure can keep your face looking smooth and young for up to 18 months.
Voluma builds up your mid-face to restore lost volume. Dr. Aliksanian can even use it to create higher, more elegant cheekbones to lift and define your face. If you have a weak chin, Voluma can be used for a non-surgical chin augmentation, too. Voluma lasts up to 18 months.
This thin, honey-like formulation is the ideal choice for a subtle and natural-looking lip augmentation. Dr. Aliksanian also uses Volbella to fill in tear troughs under your eyes and to smooth out smoker’s lines around the mouth. Volbella contains lidocaine to increase your comfort during the injection process. Volbella can last for a year or more.
The Restylane® Family filler in downtown los angeles
Restylane also relies on HA to replenish your skin and plump up dents, creases, and wrinkles. Restylane has a complete family of products that can do everything from restore cheek volume to rejuvenate your hands. In fact, Restylane is the only HA-based dermal filler that’s been cleared by the FDA for use in the hands.
Restylane Kysse has quickly become the most popular lip filler on the market due to its soft, subtle results that allow clients to retain a full range of natural expressions. It also causes less immediate post-injection swelling, meaning a decrease in potential downtime.
Restylane Contour is the newest addition to the Restylane filler family but has quickly become one of the most commonly-used. It is fantastic for creating contour and defintion in the upper cheeks, and can even be used in the lips for those seeing that extra pop.
Refyne and Defyne
The newer Restylane Defyne and Refyne have a groundbreaking, flexible formulation that moves when you do. These HA products are perfect for filling out deep creases around the mouth and nose, as their elasticity allow for natural-looking expressions at all times. The results typically last 9 to 12 months.
Restylane Silk creates lovely lip augmentations and can even reshape your cupid’s bow. It’s also a great choice to fill in shallow folds or wrinkles, such as smoker’s lines. The Restylane products last from 6 months to 12 months, depending on where Dr. LA injects them and which formulation she chooses.
Redensity RHA is the first filler specifically designed for superficial lines in the most expressive area of the face (think: smoker’s lines, lines around the mouth, and smiles lines). The smooth and flawless results of Redensity RHA has quickly made it a client-favorite for this specific reason.
Belotero is a versatile, cohesive HA injectable filler. It smooths moderate-to- severe wrinkles, treats fine lines around the lips, and addresses under eye hollows. Its flexible formulation blends seamlessly with the structure of your skin, allowing to retain your full range of expressions. Belotero lasts about 9 months in dynamic areas and up to 18 months in more static ones.
Radiesse is best known for rejuvenating hands, and is also an excellent choice for jawline filler. The microspheres in Radiesse are injected into your skin to create immediate volume while simultaneously stimulating your body’s collagen production response. These fresh new proteins gradually replace the microspheres as they are eliminated by your body. Radiesse is formulated with lidocaine to limit discomfort. It can last for a year or more.
