Dermal Fillers

derma filler 4Dermal filler facial rejuvenation currently ranks as the second most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the US after Botox. A variety of dermal filler medspa treatments are available today to address a patient’s unique requirements.
During the initial consultation, the provider will discuss all aspects of the treatment, including its estimated costs. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides dermal filler injections to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

Cost Comparison

While the costs of different types of dermal filler injections will vary, they will almost always be more affordable than plastic surgery as well as a number of non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment options. The procedure will not require the use of general anesthesia or sedation. The injections can be administered at the medspa, unlike a facial surgery that will have to be performed at a surgical venue.
Even in comparison to certain non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures that may involve advanced techniques such as laser, ultrasound or RF, or even some advanced chemical peels, the cost of dermal filler injections may prove to be more competitive. Filler treatment involves minimal or no downtime, which can have cost advantages for certain working people.
Dermal filler treatments require almost no prior preparation or lab tests, prescription meds or post-op appointments. All these are cost saving aspects, which may dermal filler injectable treatments more affordable than various other facial anti-aging procedures. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for dermal filler injections.

Cost Factors

Advanced dermal filler treatments such as Radiesse and Sculptra Aesthetic are likely to cost more than hyaluronic acid based filler injections such as Juvederm Ultra, Restylane, and Belotero. However, the stronger filler injections will also produce longer lasting effects, and the sticker price should be viewed against the potential longevity and effectiveness of the results.
The practice location will make an impact on the overall costs of a dermal filler treatment. The average living costs vary from one place to another, which makes a difference to the costs of products and services in a particular city or stage. The quality standards of the med spa, the guidance of experienced plastic surgeons, the expertise of the staff members, and the kind of personalized care and services will influence the cost of the procedure to an extent.

Extent of Treatment

Some people may only require a limited treatment in one part of the face to mitigate mild to moderate facial lines, while some others may need treatment in multiple areas of the face. In a few cases, liquid facelift procedure may be performed, which combines two or more injectables. The practice may charge the price according to the volume of filler gel or the number of injection vials used for treatment.
If the filler treatment is combined with other cosmetic procedures, the medical spa may be able to offer a package price or a rebate. Several financing options are also available, which the patient should consider once the financial estimate of the treatment is determined.

What is the Difference between Facial Dermal Fillers?

Facial Dermal Fillers

botoxA wide range of facial dermal filler injections are available today, which have been approved by the FDA. The ingredients as well as the strength of these med spa filler treatments can vary.
Depending on the specific needs of the patient, the injection provider will recommend the most appropriate fillers. Motykie medical spa provides high quality, proven, and fully suitable cosmetic fillers to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

Juvederm Ultra / Juvederm Ultra XC

Juvederm is one of the most popular dermal filler treatments today. Juvederm Ultra is ideal to treat fine lines and moderate wrinkles on the face. The injection treatment can be used closer to the skin surface and areas with thinner skin, such as the lines around the nose and mouth. Juvederm Ultra XC can be injected into more sensitive areas such as the lips for lip augmentation.
Juvederm med spa filler gel includes hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. This ingredient acts like a sponge and absorbs water, causing the treated area to become slightly plump. Results can last from six months to a year. The XC version contains lidocaine, which avoids the need to apply local anesthetic separately.

Juvederm Voluma XC

Juvederm Voluma is also based on hyaluronic acid, but the concentration of this ingredient is higher. Voluma has been approved by the FDA specifically for adding volume and contour to the cheeks.
People with thin or sunken cheeks can achieve a fuller, rounder look of the face with Juvederm Voluma treatment. Results with Juvederm Voluma can last for as long as two years, making it one of the longest lasting HA-based fillers.

Restylane / Restylane Lyft

Restylane can perform similar functions as Juvederm Ultra, but it is more effectively applied to volumize the hollows under the eyes. It can mitigate the appearance of fine lines and deep folds, plump the lips, and add volume to flattened areas.
Restylane Lyft can perform similar function as Juvederm Voluma, and add substance to the mid-face. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for cosmetic facial filler injections.

Radiesse

The key ingredient in Radiesse filler gel is calcium hydroxylapatite in the form of microspheres. The treatment is used to address more severe facial creases and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It can also be applied to plump up cheekbones, but it is not used in the lip area.
Radiesse stimulates the new production of collagen fibers in the skin in order to create more natural looking and sustainable outcomes. Results with Radiesse can last for up to a year or even more in some cases.

Sculptra

Sculptra is Poly-L-Lactic acid based filler, which works differently from HA fillers. The treatment can be used to build up the cheeks, fill in the hollows and depleted areas of the skin, and increase skin thickness. Multiple treatments of Sculptra injections are usually required for stellar results. The effects can usually last for up to two years.

Age Spots (Liver Spots) Treatment

Age Spots (Liver Spots) Treatment | Beverly Hills Medical SpaOne of the common aging signs is age spots, which are also called liver spots. These spots typically occur in tan, brown or black color, and may vary in size. Sun exposure is a key reason behind their occurrence, and as a result they usually appear in sun-exposed areas such as the face, hands, arms, and shoulders. Age spots are more common among people over the age of 50.
A variety of med spa treatments are available today to lighten or remove age spots from the skin. An experienced provider will recommend the most appropriate treatment options for a patient, depending on their skin type, skin color and the extent of problem. Motykie medical spa provides treatments for age spots to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
 

Treatment Options

The advantage with choosing non-surgical med spa solutions to treat age spots is that the patient will not be required to undergo significant discomfort or downtime. However, it is important to choose a treatment that is capable of penetrating the epidermis because the pigment in age spots is located at the base of the epidermis.
 
Medications
If the condition of age spots is mild, the provider may prescribe certain bleaching creams that could help to mitigate the effect of age spots over several months. In more severe cases, the creams can be combined with retinoids and a mild steroid.
It is critical for the patient to use a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 for several months during and after the treatment. Temporary side effects such as redness, itching, dryness or burning sensation may be expected.
 
Light-Based Treatments
Age spots are caused by melanin producing cells or melanocytes. With light based treatments such as lasers and IPL, it is possible to strike at the root of the problem and destroy the melanocytes. These procedures do not cause any damage to the upper surface of the skin.
The age spots will gradually fade out over a few months. Side effects with light based therapy are few, but mild skin discoloration may occur sometimes. Sun protection is required with these therapies.
 
Freezing (Cryotherapy)
Freezing process involves the application of liquid nitrogen or another freezing agent on the age spots to destroy the pigment. As the site begins to heal, the skin appears lighter. Freezing may be applied over a single age spot or a small group of spots. Temporary skin irritation is expected, and mild discoloration may occur in a few cases.
 
Dermabrasion
The topmost skin layer goes through planing or sanding down with a rapidly rotating brush in this procedure. This enables the delicate removal of the uppermost skin layer, allowing for regeneration of a new layer in its place. Temporary redness and scab formation may occur.
 
Chemical Peel
Age spots can be treated with certain types of chemical peels, which will cause the top skin layer to peel. New skin will form in its place, causing the age spots to fade. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for age spot treatment.

What are Dermal Fillers?

What are Dermal Fillers? | Beverly Hills Medical Spa | West HollywoodDermal fillers, also known as soft tissue cosmetic fillers, today rank as the second most popular non-surgical med spa aesthetic procedure in the US after Botox. These fillers are designed to fill in the facial wrinkles and folds, add volume to the depleted areas of the face, and improve the facial contours. In addition to the face, the fillers may also be injected in the neck and hands.
Results with dermal fillers are achieved very quickly, the risks are very few, and the discomfort and downtime is minimal. Motykie medical spa provides advanced FDA approved dermal filler injections to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
 

Candidacy

Women and men above the age of 18, who are bothered by the appearance of one or more of the following conditions, may make good candidates for a dermal filler med spa procedure:

  • Appearance of deep lines or wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, brows, or forehead.
  • Need to enhance the contours of the lips or jaws.
  • Need to add volume in depleted areas of the faces, which may include the cheeks, lips, or jaw line.
  • Appearance of depressions and scars in the facial skin occurring due to acne, injury or congenital imperfections.

The injectable procedure may only require a topical anesthetic, and can be performed in-office in about 15 to 20 minutes. Working people and busy moms particularly choose procedures such as dermal fillers because mostly a single visit is required, no specific recovery is involved, and it can easily fit into their busy schedule.
 

Procedure

Dermal filler gel will be administered with a thin needle to targeted areas of the face and forehead, including around the eyes, around the mouth and lips, in the forehead, in the cheeks, and along the jaw line. The location, number and depth of the injections will depend on the type of dermal filler chosen and the patient’s unique cosmetic goals.
Some of the fillers will include a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine, which will ensure comfort during the injection procedure, and no separate local anesthesia application is needed. Sometimes a numbing cream may be used. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for dermal filler treatments.
 

Types of Fillers

Dermal fillers can be broadly classified into three types: temporary, semi-permanent, and permanent. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are temporary, usually lasting for about six months to a year, while other fillers will provide more sustainable outcomes.
 
Temporary Fillers
Hyaluronic acid based fillers such as Restylane, Belotero, Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma rank among the most popular dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that supports the skin structure in the body, and promotes fullness and volume.
 
Semi-Permanent Fillers
Poly-L-lactic acid based dermal fillers such as Sculptra Aesthetic are longer lasting dermal fillers to add volume to the depleted areas of the face, or to fill deeper facial lines.
 
Permanent Fillers
Permanent fillers are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), which are microspheres that are not absorbed by the body. Bellafill is a popular PMMA based facial filler.
