Dr. Jason Emer’s experience as one of the most innovative cosmetic surgeons in Beverly Hills has fueled his passion for building an ingredient-conscious, effective and versatile portfolio of skincare products, regimens and procedures.
Dermal fillers are injectable gel-like substances that can be used for many cosmetic enhancements. Dr. Emer employs dermal fillers as part of many facial sculpting treatment plans and to address signs of aging and other concerns across the body.
Dermal fillers can be used to add volume and to reduce lines, wrinkles, and folds in the following areas:
Brows | Forehead | Under-eye | Lips | Cheeks | Earlobes | Neck | Chest | Hands | Elbows | Knees
Board-certified dermatologist and facial and body sculpting expert Dr. Jason Emer performs injectable dermal filler treatments for a wide range of cosmetic enhancements. Dr. Emer takes rejuvenation with dermal fillers to the next level with his customized, combination treatments. These treatments are performed at his state-of-the-art office located in Beverly Hills.
Candidacy for dermal fillers can be determined in a consultation with Dr. Emer. He will want to learn about your cosmetic concerns, medical history, and expectations for treatment. He will also need to assess the structure and tissues in the proposed treatment area. In general, ideal candidates for dermal fillers are in good physical health, do not smoke, and are committed to following all pre- and post-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Emer.
Dr. Emer’s patients not only love their dermal filler results, they also love that the procedure is quick and doesn’t require time off work to recover. Most dermal filler appointments take less than an hour, and you will be able to continue on with your day after the treatment.
When you arrive to your dermal filler appointment, Dr. Emer will review the treatment areas and establish the optimal injection sites. Next, an antibacterial solution is applied to the injection sites. Most patients easily tolerate the injections, but a topical numbing agent can be used at this stage to minimize any discomfort.
With each injection, Dr. Emer massages the area and evaluates the results to ensure a natural-looking outcome. Once he has completed the injections, he will provide any applicable aftercare instructions.
Dr. Emer has earned his reputation as a top cosmetic dermatologist in part because of his ability to choose the right blend of complementary treatments for each patient. He often uses multiple types of fillers, pairs fillers with neuromodulators, and enhances results with chemical peels or other skin treatments.
When it comes to dermal fillers, Dr. Emer has a refined and thorough understanding of the various types of fillers available. His exceptional results with dermal fillers can be attributed to his diligence in choosing the right type and dose of filler along with identifying the ideal injection site for each.
If Dr. Emer determines that you are a good candidate for dermal fillers, he will use his extensive experience and knowledge of available fillers to develop your treatment plan. He may recommend hyaluronic acid (HA)-based fillers, calcium-based filler, collagen-based filler, and/or silicone-based fillers as needed to best achieve a patient’s desired outcome.
HA fillers have a gel-like consistency and work to plump the skin by improving and maintaining hydration. HA fillers often contain lidocaine to reduce any post-treatment discomfort. Patients can expect to enjoy their HA filler results for six months to a year before retreatment is needed. Dr. Emer is proud to offer the following HA dermal fillers in West Hollywood:
Belotero | Juvederm Ultra | Juvederm Ultra Plus | Juvederm Voluma | Juvederm Volbella | Juvederm Vollure | Restylane Lyft | Restylane Silk | Restylane Defyne | Restylane Refyne | Revanesse Versa
Radiesse has a base of calcium hydroxylapatite, which naturally occurs in our bones. Radiesse has a thicker consistency than HA fillers, and can be a great option for adding volume to restore a youthful look to the back of the hands, smoothing nasolabial folds, and addressing various facial folds and wrinkles. Calcium-based fillers tend to last longer than HA fillers, with results often lasting about a year.
Bellafill contains tiny polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) spheres that form a support structure under the skin. Bellafill also contains collagen, which promotes firm, healthy skin. Patients can expect semi-permanent volume restoration effects from Bellafill.
Sculptra is a dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid. This substance boosts collagen production as well as treating creases, deep wrinkles, and folds. Retreatment will be needed after about two years to maintain your results.
Dr. Emer has successfully used silicone injections with many patients for facial sculpting and rejuvenation. Made of medical-grade silicone oil, this type of filler can provide permanent improvements. Dr. Emer uses a microdroplet technique to gradually build up a sunken area and increase volume to smooth out wrinkles.
A patient’s body fat can be transferred from one part of the body to a treatment site as an alternative method of restoring lost volume or augmenting a facial feature. Unlike HA fillers, Radiesse, Bellafill, and silicone injections, fat grafting is a surgical procedure.
Fat grafting requires liposuction to extract the excess body fat that is then purified and injected. For patients who want long-lasting results and an all-natural filler, fat grafting can be a good option.
The cost of your dermal filler treatment will depend on the number of injections and type of injections required. You will receive all pricing information associated with your treatment prior to scheduling any procedures.
