DERMAL FILLERS IN LOS ANGELES AND ORANGE COUNTY
As we age, not only does our skin produce progressively less collagen, we also lose some of the fat that lies under the skin. Bottom line, we loose volume, and our weaker older skin simply sags.
With today’s fast and effective dermal fillers, it’s never been easier to replace missing volume, and erase wrinkles or sculpt sagging skin. Fill in those laugh lines, or give your jaw or cheekbones a more youthful look. All in a matter or minutes, and with practically no downtime. Pick your perfect dermal filler, and let AMA Skincare work the magic!
Restylane® is an FDA-approved injectable gel, which enhances the skin’s natural beauty by restoring volume, creating softness and revitalizing its appearance.
Restylane® gel works by enhancing the skin’s natural reserve of hyaluronic acid, directly adding volume through wrinkle removal or by re-sculpting facial features. Though hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin, in Restylane® it is synthetically manufactured, thus limiting any risk of animal-based disease transmissions or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins.
This treatment fits well into busy lifestyles, with a procedure usually taking less than 45 minutes with minimal downtime. Results can be seen instantly, and often last up to 6 months (results may vary).
Radiesse® is an FDA-approved dermal filler for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles around the nose, mouth and eyes (including smile lines, marionette lines and nasolabial folds). Radiesse® works with your body below the skin’s surface and is considered a “sub-dermal” filler. The substance used is calcium hydroxylapitite, a naturally occurring substance that does not cause allergic reactions so it needs no testing. When properly used for wrinkle removal, Radiesse® not only replaces lost volume and “plumps up” the skin, but actually promotes the creation of new collagen. When artfully injected into the sub-dermal space, a matrix of Radiesse® can be “laid down” in a scaffold-like pattern, thus promoting your collagen cells to naturally grow around it.
Radiesse® does more than just temporarily fill-in facial lines and wrinkles ─ it rebuilds your skin’s foundation. You get immediate results and look younger, longer. Radiesse® lasts 12-18 months (results may vary).
Juvéderm™ is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that plays a vital role in hydrating and replenishing its natural volume. An effective wrinkle removal treatment, it can also be used for facial sculpting. It’s not derived from animal sources nor tested on animals, so no allergy skin tests are needed prior to treatment.
Juvéderm™ is an injectable gel, made from a unique manufacturing process that provides the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any currently available dermal filler – providing the longest lasting results. This advanced manufacturing process also creates a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin, resulting in a smooth, natural look and feel. Juvéderm™ alone has this unique gel formulation (other hyaluronic acid fillers are made of granular consistency gels).
PREPARING FOR INJECTABLES
Getting an injectable treatment isn’t as simple as showing up, laying down, closing your eyes and waiting for results. Like all treatments, it is important to prepare and know that there are a few simple steps you should take before having your injectable treatments.
1. Avoid vitamin E, St. John’s wort, ibuprofen, aspirin and other anti-inflammatories for 10 days to two weeks before your injections, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. Avoiding these will reduce swelling and bruising.
2. If you are seeing a new physician, it’s important to notify your injector of the last time you had any injections, what was injected and specifically where. Not all injectables mix well, so be thorough.
3. Do not undergo injections if you are intoxicated or under the influence of any controlled substance. There is no such thing as a safe Botox party.
4. If you are prone to cold sores, notify your doctor in advance. A prescription of anti-herpes medication can prevent a post-injection outbreak.
5. Don’t plan your treatment within a day or two of an important event. You may have visible swelling and bruising that not even a great concealer can hide.
