People living in West Hollywood tend to have high expectations when it comes to facial sculpting treatments like fillers. If you are looking for a product that can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, or if you simply want to alter your facial anatomy in a subtle way, then you should consider undergoing a treatment with Juvederm® dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid. These fillers offer immediate results with little to no downtime.
Causes of Facial Aging
Before looking in-depth at Juvederm®, it may be helpful to understand the causes of facial aging as it relates to treatment with dermal fillers. Your skin contains certain substances like hyaluronic acid that tend to decline in both quantity and quality as you grow older. The purpose of hyaluronic acid in your skin is to create hydration. HA is ubiquitous in soft tissues like between your joints and and skin. In your joints, hyaluronic acid acts as a cushion for harsh impacts. Your skin benefits from hyaluronic acid by becoming more volumized and hydrated.
As you grow older and lose hyaluronic acid, your skin will naturally become thinner and drier. Think of a dry riverbed. The dryer it gets, the more cracks develop in the surface. Wrinkles are cracks that become creases and folds over time. That is where Juvederm® comes in.
Juvederm® to the Rescue
A Juvederm® treatment can help to reverse the process of facial aging created by a deficiency of hyaluronic acid. It contains hyaluronic acid within an extremely smooth gel that works very easily using the injection delivery method. After injection at the treatment sites, the product begins to immediately draw moisture into your skin to hydrate and plump it. In addition to hyaluronic acid, the gel contains lidocaine to ensure the comfort of the patient.
As you grow older, your skin may begin to sag and your cheeks may flatten. This can be a result of volume loss in your cheek area. The Voluma product was specifically formulated to create volume under the surface of your skin to contour and lift the cheek area.

There is an increasing number of men looking for cosmetic enhancement procedures, specifically ones that define and sculpt certain signature facial features. My younger male patients appreciate the jawlines of @coltonlhaynes, @mattbomer and #bradpitt, where their faces are more squared-off and bold to give their faces a more strongly contoured and chiseled look. To get this type of result, in some patients adding both immediate and long-term volume helps to accomplish their goals. The "bellalift" procedure combines a robust hyaluronic acid filler @juvederm Voluma with collagen-producing crystals in @bellafill to give immediate contouring and long-term definition and shape. This patient is very athletic and gets hollow easily but also wants chiseled features especially around his jawline and chin. So a combination of these fillers can improve his overall facial balancing by improve the jawline, chin, temples and cheeks with a combination that will prove to last longer-term especially in those who quickly metabolize. Also for those who want defined features to be enhanced this gives the ability to build the shape over time. For those seeking a more masculine look, we focus on features that heighten our perception of male beauty such as more squared-off jawline, higher cheek bones, filled-in temples, straight nasal bridge and hydrated lips. By meticulously and strategically using a ‘micro-aliquot’ amounts of fillers we can improve shape of these areas and get an improved dynamic appearance to his face.
The Volbella product is a gel that is delivered using an injection into your lips to augment them and correct “lipstick lines” in adults.
If you are dealing with moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles like “parentheses lines” around your mouth and nose, we can inject you with Vollure to temporarily correct these types of wrinkles, leading to a more youthful and smooth facial appearance.
