The Most Popular Fillers in Los Angeles

Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvederm® and Radiesse® are four different dermal fillers that are all used for similar purposes but each with their own special qualities.

Restylane®

Restylane® is a natural product from Sweden consisting of a gel containing hyaluronic acid, which is used primarily to smooth out wrinkles and to provide a fuller lip. Dermal fillers can also be used at the corners of the mouth and above the lips to smooth out smile lines. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body, it dissolves naturally over time, with effects lasting about 6 months. Contact Your Laser Skin Care to experience Restylane in Los Angeles.

Perlane®

Perlane® is similar to Restylane®, but the primary difference is that the hyaluronic acid gel particles in Perlane® are thicker than those found in Restylane®. These thicker particles lift and fill the areas of injection to a greater degree than can be accomplished with Restylane® by itself. So Perlane® and Restylane® can be used together.
Perlane® also contains hyaluronic acid and is non allergenic. It dissolves naturally over time and the effect lasts about 6-8 months.

Juvederm®

If you are looking for a facial filler to replace lost volume, diminish lines and wrinkles, and last, at least 6 months, Juvederm® might be the best choice for you. Containing Hyaluronic acid, Juvederm® eliminates the deeper nasolabial folds and fills the hollows in your cheeks or chin smoothly and naturally. Results are instantaneous, side effects are minor and it’s only a short trip to Your Laser Skin Care expert, Dr. Ella Fedonenko, for Juvederm® Beverly Hills!

Radiesse®

Radiesse® is the latest of the dermal filler treatments to be developed. As the body ages collagen production slows down, causing signs of aging. Rather than simply being a dermal filler, Radiesse® works by stimulating the body’s own natural collagen production to plump up skin and rejuvenate the face naturally.
Radiesse® can be used to reduce lines, wrinkles and scars. It contains calcium hydroxylapatite which is the main component of our bones, so it is unlikely to trigger an allergic reaction. And an extra added attraction? Radiesse® is one of the longest-lasting fillers with results that often last up to one year!

What to Expect During Your Filler Procedure

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin of the face or lip, with the procedure taking only about 30 minutes. The duration of the effects will vary from individual to individual, depending on skin type, age and lifestyle. Studies have shown that the majority of treated patients enjoy the effect of Restylane® and Perlane® for about 6 months following treatment.

Are there any side effects?

It should be kept in mind that a small percentage of patients may experience swelling and bruising, which may last 5 to 7 days after treatment.
