Facial Fillers

Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane in Encino

Facial Fillers are used to add volume to temporarily correct hollowing of the cheek and chin areas. Even with proper skin care and sun avoidance, the cheek and chin areas specifically can hollow and create a tired appearance. Facial Fillers can enhance the overall appearance of the face and create a younger and fuller appearance. Dr. Matthew Malamet offers a number of Facial Filler options including:

  • Juvederm –

    A smooth gel filler that is most often used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. Results can last up to 1 year after just one treatment.

  • Restylane –

    Used to add volume to erase moderate to severe wrinkles. Also commonly used to add fullness and definition to lips.

  • Perlane –

    Similar to Restylane, Perlane also is used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles. Also is more commonly used to treat deeper and more severe wrinkles.

Facial Fillers Procedure

Since Dr. Matthew Malamet offers a wide range of Facial Fillers to treat a number of different issues, Facial Filler Procedures begin with a thorough examination and consultation. Understanding the desired results and expectations of each patient will help Dr. Malamet understand which fillers to use and where to precisely target.

Prior to any injections, a topical numbing cream is used to minimize any discomfort that may result from the procedure. Once the area is numb, Dr. Malamet carefully injects the necessary filler into the affected area. Facial Filler Injections take just seconds, and the overall procedure takes a few minutes. While most patients achieve their desired results after just one procedure, some patients may require additional treatments to achieve the very best results.

Facial Filler Key Facts:

  • Anesthesia: Topical Numbing Agent, Local Anesthetic
  • Length of Procedure: 30 Minutes-45 Minutes
  • Length of Stay: Patients generally return home shortly after the procedure
  • Discomfort: Some minor swelling and discomfort
  • Anticipate: Some minor swelling and redness, but daily activities can normally be resumed later in the day
  • Final Results: Results evident immediately but final results visible within a couple of weeks
  • Duration of Results: May last up to 9 months but can vary from patient to patient

Facial Filler Results

Most patients will see results immediately following the injections. As the fillers begin to settle into place, the results from Facial Fillers will get better and better as time is taken to heal. Ice-packs can be used to minimize swelling and discomfort following Facial Filler Injections, but patients should be careful not to apply direct pressure to the injection sites. Too much pressure on the injection sites immediately following the procedure could cause Facial Fillers to shift out of place. Following Dr. Malamet’s specific post-procedure instructions, most patients resume daily activity immediately following the procedure.
