Facial fillers are a convenient option for someone interested in dramatic results without cosmetic surgery. The doctor injects a filler into defined areas of the face in order to achieve a more youthful appearance. This adds volume and yields immediate results.
Facial fillers, or dermal fillers, can be used to treat a variety of issues including loss of volume, sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Versatility, combined with their general affordability and convenience, make facial filler injections one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today. Plastic Surgery Institute offers a variety of facial filler options and our highly-skilled specialists can help you achieve your cosmetic goals effectively, efficiently, and conveniently.
Facial fillers are injectable gel products used to restore volume and moisture to the face which have been lost as a result of aging. Facial fillers typically contain hyaluronic acid, a substance which naturally exists within the body and helps to retain moisture in soft tissues (including the skin).
When these hyaluronic acid-based fillers are injected, they not only create immediate volume but also increase moisture retention and collagen production over time. Facial fillers are slowly metabolized by the body, eventually dissolving. One treatment typically lasts anywhere from 6 months up to 2 years depending on the product used and the area treated, at which time a follow-up treatment will be needed in order to maintain results.
A facial filler containing synthetic deoxycholic acid which is used to sculpt and lift the area under the chin.
A facial filler which dramatically boosts the body’s collagen production with the use of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA).
A dermal filler composed of calcium-based microspheres which smooths lines and promotes collagen production.
A refined smooth gel formulation specifically designed for use in lip-defining procedures.

During your consultation at Plastic Surgery Institute, your skin will be examined and your facial filler treatment will be determined. When you arrive for treatment, your skin will be prepared by our aesthetic specialist before injections are administered to the targeted areas. Facial filler treatments typically take from 15 minutes up to one hour within the luxury and privacy of our Beverly Hills and Rancho Mirage locations. No downtime is required following treatment, although exercise should be avoided for 24 hours to ensure the best results.

While facial fillers can offer both subtle and dramatic increases in volume, they rejuvenate the skin in a way which appears natural and supple.
Common side effects from facial filler injections are swelling, redness, pain, itching, rash, and bruising. These side effects typically subside within 2 weeks.
Generally speaking, healthy adults can safely receive dermal fillers. There are some products which are recommended for patients 21 years and older, as well as some which are not suitable for patients with certain health issues or allergies. It is important to discuss your medical history with your doctor when discussing treatment options.
The duration of facial filler treatments can vary from 6 months up to 2 years. Factors which affect the amount of time which may pass between treatments without loss of results are: the product used, the area treated, the skin’s condition prior to treatment, and the patient’s response to treatment.
Facial filler procedures are some of the most popular cosmetic procedures available due to their convenience, affordability, versatility, and efficacy. However the results achieved with dermal filler treatments are not permanent and must be maintained more frequently than if addressed surgically.
