What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable cosmetic treatments that help to improve the appearance of your skin by reducing common dermatological issues and giving your skin more fullness and volume.
What types of dermal fillers do you offer?
Westside Laser & Light offers a variety of different dermal fillers to fit all of your aesthetic needs: Restylane/Emervel, Radiesse, and Belotero.
What can dermal fillers treat?
Dermal fillers are a great way to increase volume and plump up skin that has lost elasticity and collagen due to age. Dermal fillers can also reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles including forehead lines, frown lines and crow’s feet.
Which dermal filler is right for me?
Which injectable filler you decide on will depend on what you are looking to achieve:
The naturally occurring deposits of hyaluronic acid in the skin decrease with age. Lips lose their tone and fullness and fine lines may develop around the mouth. Small quantities of Restylane Kysse compensate for the hyaluronic acid loss. Lips appear revitalised and plumper as wrinkles are gently filled out.
As we age, the face loses volume, facial tissue loses its firmness and contours become less well defined. The special properties of the hyaluronic acid gel in Emervel Volume make it particularly suitable for effective filling and volumising of the cheek areas.
Emervel Volume offers a high level of comfort during treatment due to the integrated local anaesthetic lidocaine.
Suitable for: Cheek filling and contouring.
If you are looking for a natural dermal filler Radiesse injects calcium hydroxylapatite, which is naturally occurring within the body, to increase volume and fullness in the skin. Radiesse results also last up to a year or more. Furthermore, Radiesse can also be used with lidocaine to reduce discomfort associated with injections
This newer hyaluronic acid filler can reduce the appearance of both wrinkles and folds while also increasing volume in the face and lips. This injectable is ideal for targeting finer lines.
What should I expect when I get a dermal filler from Westside Laser & Light?
The process itself is fast and non-invasive. We may apply a topical numbing agent to the skin prior to the injections to alleviate any procedural discomfort. Then we will administer the series of injections to the areas to be treated. This only takes a few minutes.
