Rejuvenating the Face

Rejuvenating the FacePreparing customized mixed filler treatments for patients is one of the next frontiers in facial rejuvenation. Using mixed filler treatments can help address components of the aging face, including wrinkles and volume loss.

Analyzing The Aging Face

Every filler has its place, and a synthetic filler is chosen according to the target region in the face and the aesthetic correction and result you are trying to achieve. However, performing a true facial rejuvenation using fillers can be done best by addressing the individual components of the aging face.

Some of the main components of the aging face include volume loss of fat; soft tissue descent due to lack of integrity of the retaining ligaments and other structures that hold the soft tissue to the skeleton; and the thinning and loss of elasticity of skin with its ongoing depletion of native dermal components.

Volume Augmentation

For volume augmentation, such as those performed in the jaw line, chin, and cheeks, the fillers that have the most capability of projection are going to be the preferred fillers, as one can achieve more result with less filler product.

There are many filler options on the market, and which one will work best for you depends on the signs of aging you are trying to erase.

For softer results in areas where less projection and firmness is desired, such as in the lips or the nasolabial folds, we believe Juvederm and Restylane work very well. While these fillers are great for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, they typically have a shorter longevity due to reductions in their cross linking and other parameters. As such, they are better suited for their intended treatments.

Sculptra, meanwhile, is a longer lasting cosmetic treatment option for those who are looking to reduce facial lines and wrinkles, and create a fuller and more youthful appearance to the face. Sculptra is a non-surgical injectable poly-l-lactic acid, and one of the most popular fillers on the market.

Mixing and Matching

Not all HA fillers have the same soft tissue effects, which in turn means that some HA products are more applicable for certain areas. As a result, altering the concentrations of the existing compositions is sometimes needed to optimize certain fillers.

Mixing different fillers with varying concentrations allows you to be somewhat more creative in applying these mixed fillers in the face by improving formulations that you get in a packaged syringe. You can more appropriately treat specific facial regions and create custom filler treatments individualized for each patient.

Dermal injectable fillers are one of the most popular non-surgical treatments being performed today, but it is important to have dermal fillers performed by an experienced cosmetic surgeon, such as Dr. Azizzadeh. If you are looking for ways to rejuvenate the skin, schedule a consultation with Beverly Hills facial rejuvenation expert Dr. Babak Azizzadeh.
