Injectable Fillers


What are Injectable Fillers?

Injectable fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are cosmetic treatments that involve the injection of substances into the skin to restore volume, smooth out wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. These fillers are typically made from various materials, including hyaluronic acid, collagen, calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid.
The primary purpose of injectable fillers is to address signs of aging, such as lines, wrinkles, hollow areas, and loss of volume in the face. They can be used to plump up thin lips, smooth out nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth), enhance cheekbones, and improve the appearance of under-eye hollows.

What is the process?

Injectable fillers involve a consultation to discuss goals and concerns, followed by a personalized treatment plan. The filler is carefully injected to enhance facial features, reduce wrinkles, and add volume. The procedure is quick, minimally invasive, and offers immediate results with little to no downtime. Results can last several months to over a year, depending on the type of filler used. Regular follow-up appointments may be advised for maintenance.

Benefits of Injectable Fillers

Wrinkle reduction

Injectable fillers can effectively smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, particularly in areas such as the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and around the mouth (smile lines or marionette lines). This can help to achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Volume restoration

As we age, we naturally lose volume in certain areas of the face, leading to a sunken or hollowed appearance. Injectable fillers can restore lost volume, particularly in areas like the cheeks, temples, and under-eye hollows, giving a fuller and more youthful look.

Lip augmentation

Injectable fillers can be used to enhance and volumize the lips, providing a plumper and more defined appearance. This is particularly beneficial for those who desire fuller lips or have noticed volume loss in this area due to aging.

Facial contouring

Injectable fillers can be used to sculpt and contour the face, helping to enhance certain features and create more balanced proportions. For example, fillers can be used to augment the chin, define the jawline, or enhance cheekbones, resulting in a more defined and attractive facial structure.

Non-surgical and minimal downtime

Unlike surgical procedures, injectable fillers are non-surgical and typically require little to no downtime. The procedure is minimally invasive, involving a series of injections, and most individuals can resume their normal activities shortly after the treatment.

Long-lasting but temporary results

Depending on the type of filler used, the results of injectable fillers can last anywhere from several months to over a year. While the effects are not permanent, this can be advantageous for individuals who prefer to have flexibility and control over their appearance.
Procedure Timeline

During the initial consultation, Dr. Chahin and our skilled nurse injectors with 90210 Aesthetics will assess your facial concerns, discuss your desired outcomes, and create a personalized treatment plan. We will also provide you with detailed information about the procedure, including potential risks and benefits.

Prior to the procedure, it is important to follow any pre-operative instructions provided by our clinic. This may include avoiding certain medications or supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding, as well as refraining from smoking and alcohol consumption.

On the day of the procedure, you will come to our clinic and Dr. Chahin or our skilled nurse injector will clean the treatment area and apply a topical numbing cream if necessary. The filler will be injected into the targeted areas using a fine needle or cannula. The procedure usually takes around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of the treatment.

After the procedure, you may experience mild swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection sites. These side effects are usually temporary and resolve within a few days to a week. You can typically resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure, although we may provide specific post-procedure care instructions to ensure optimal healing.
We will schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your progress and ensure that you are satisfied with your results. This appointment allows us to address any concerns you may have and make any necessary adjustments to achieve the desired outcome.
