Fillers from your dermatologists in Santa Monica, CA, can help you look your best.

When you look at your face in the mirror, are you happy with what you see, or do you see fine lines and wrinkles? The early signs of aging can affect how you feel about yourself. If you think you look old, then you feel old too. If this sounds like you, it’s time to take control of your skin and try fillers!

Santa Monica Dermatology Group in Santa Monica, CA, offers a wide range of skincare treatments and services, including fillers to help you look your best.

As the years go by, your skin loses vital moisture, volume, and elasticity. When you smile, laugh, frown, or show other expressions, fine lines and wrinkles begin to form. You begin to develop:

  • Crow’s feet, which are the lines at the corners of your eyes
  • Furrows, which are the lines running across your forehead
  • Glabella, which are the lines between your eyebrows
  • Marionette lines, which run from the corners of your mouth to your chin

Filler treatment begins with the injection of small amounts of filler material using a tiny needle. The injections are tolerated easily by most people, and you can request numbing beforehand. The amount of injections you will need depends on the area treated, and your individual characteristics.

How often you need maintenance treatments depends on the type of filler you select. Your dermatologist can help you make the right choice. Collagen fillers may last up to 4 months, and hyaluronic acid fillers can last up to 12 months.

You deserve to look your best and fillers can help. To learn more about the different types of fillers and how fillers can help you look your best, call Santa Monica Dermatology Group in Santa Monica, CA, at (310) 829-4484 now!

More about Fillers

So, what are dermal fillers? Dermal fillers are liquids or gels which are injected in small amounts into your skin so as to soften, fill in, and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. They add back the volume that was lost due to aging and thereby reduce sagging skin.

Dermal fillers may be short-acting or long-acting depending on the ingredients. Many dermal fillers provide an immediately visible benefit, giving you smoother, more youthful skin. Dermal fillers also help stimulate collagen production, giving you added skin restoring benefits over time.

Dermal fillers are used to fill in and smooth areas, including:

  • Wrinkles at the corners of your eyes, known as crow’s feet
  • Lines between your eyebrows, known as glabella
  • Lines across your forehead, known as furrows
  • Lines from the corners of your mouth, known as marionette lines
  • Smile and laugh lines from your nose to your mouth

Dermal filler treatment is easily tolerated, and your dermatologist can use a numbing cream or spray beforehand if you wish. The number of injections you need will vary depending on the areas being treated.
