Dermal Fillers in Encino
With age comes wisdom, but unfortunately for our skin, so do lines and wrinkles! Years of laughing, smiling and frowning can result in noticeable creases. This, paired with facial volume loss that occurs as part of the natural aging process, can create a tired and older-looking appearance.
Dermal fillers, or facial fillers, can erase years of aging and give you a refreshed and youthful appearance. As an added benefit, treatment with dermal fillers is quick and virtually painless. Results are almost instantaneous and depending on the specific product, can last anywhere from several months to years.
SILK is a state-of-the-art medical spa that offers top-the-line cosmetic injectables that are proven to be safe and effective in treating an array of facial aging signs. Our team of nurses is expertly trained and skilled in administering cosmetic fillers to create natural-looking results. Whether you desire a subtle or more dramatic enhancement, we can help you look as young as you feel.
Types of Dermal Fillers We Offer
Dysport is used to treat dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that form from repeated facial expressions like frowning, squinting and furrowing of the eyebrows. It is a neurotoxin that is injected into the facial muscles to temporarily relax them, softening the overlying wrinkles. Dysport is used to treat crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and frown lines. Dysport can also improve the appearance of the neck by relaxing the midline superficial muscles which can give an aged appearance. Results from Dysport typically last three to four months.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that keeps your skin looking young and supple. But over time, your body produces less, causing the skin to lose its firm and elastic quality. Juvederm restores hyaluronic acid to the skin and adds volume to sunken or hollow facial areas and fills in lines and wrinkles. Juvederm results last typically six months, but can last in some patients up to a year. At SILK, we offer several types of Juvederm, including Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus.
Juvederm Voluma is the first and only FDA-approved filler designed to add volume in the cheek area that has been lost over time. We use Voluma to enhance the fullness of the cheekbone area and cheek hollows. When injected into the cheeks, Voluma creates a subtle lift that can be quite attractive and pleasing. Results typically last nine to 12 months, but some patients can have results that last for 18 months or more.
Radiesse is a collagen booster that restores youthful volume to sunken or hollow facial areas. It is a calcium-based filler which is most useful in the laugh lines, cheekbone area, and cheek hollows. It is also most useful in patients with thicker skin and very helpful in men. It can be used to restore fullness to the back of the hands and fill in lines and wrinkles. Results with Radiesse typically last six months to a year.
Another hyaluronic acid-based filler, Restylane is used to soften the appearance of moderate to severe laugh lines, nasolabial folds, as well to plump up the lips. Results can last for approximately six months. Restylane is one of the most versatile fillers because it can be used on all areas of the face. Patients can fill in laugh lines, treat lip wrinkles, plump lips, and add facial volume pretty much anywhere on the face with a single product.
After Your Treatment
There is little downtime with cosmetic injectables, which means you can return to work or your normal activities immediately after treatment. There is very little discomfort during the actual treatment session and minimal swelling and bruising after. Some redness in the treatment area is also normal and should subside a few days after treatment. Depending on the specific product, your results may be visible immediately after injection or a few days after.
Maintaining Your Results
Results with cosmetic injectables are temporary. Repeat sessions are needed to maintain your younger-looking appearance. You and our knowledgeable team will decide the timing of your repeat treatments. Some patients choose to undergo another session as soon as they see wrinkles and lines reappear, while others wait until the effects of the first session have completely worn off. Our team can offer our recommendations for prolonging your rejuvenating results following your in-office consultation and evaluation.
