Experts in Injectable Fillers in Los Angeles
As you age, your skin loses elasticity. It just can’t snap back into place quite as easily. And as your skin loses elasticity, it can often begin to sag, creating wrinkles and excess skin. In other words, this sagging skin can make you look far older than you feel. Think about a balloon that’s run out of air—that’s basically what happens to your skin as it loses elasticity. That’s why a group of cosmetic surgeons developed what are called injectable fillers, sometimes referred to as injectable volumizers. This includes famous brand names such as Voluma and Juvederm, not to mention Restylane or Radiesse.
Injectable fillers in most cases function just how they sound like they’d work: they fill lost volume. They blow the balloon back up to make the skin look smooth. Some injectable fillers do this using a substance call hyaluronic acid or a formulation of that substance. While it may have a somewhat intimidating name, hyaluronic acid is actually a chemical found within your own body already. Adding hyaluronic acid gets your natural collagen processes jumpstarted, not only providing volume but also helping to generate a collagen lattice to give that volume some structure.
A Variety of Uses
Time has proven that injectable fillers are a versatile group of procedures. Indeed, injectable fillers are a primary component of many of the innovative non-surgical treatments available at Westside Aesthetics today. Fillers that use hyaluronic acid are generally reversible, though those that don’t are not. Some fillers will last roughly six months, while others can last years. Some fillers are designed for deep tissue while others are best at targeting more shallow areas. The filler that works best for you will depend greatly on your desired results and how long you’d like those results to last.
