Although traditional facelifts are still very popular, what is now being called the “15-minute facial” is becoming a more and more chosen option for many patients. Dermal fillers can be used for number of cosmetic treatments, are quick and easy, and non-invasive. A quick session with your doctor is all it takes, and you can walk out of the office right after, returning to your day.

Types of Dermal Fillers

The type of filler you use will depends on quite a few factors, namely the area you would like filled (wrinkles, mouth, etc.) and whether you want a plumped up appearance or would like lines erased. The most popular options at Los Feliz Medspa include:

  • Juvederm
  • Restylane
  • Perlane
  • Radiesse

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

All fillers work to restore or increase volume to the treated area; however, different fillers can target different treatments. For example, while one filler is often used to plump up lips by filling them, others may be better suited to fill wrinkles and creases around the mouth or eyes. Your doctor will use either one injection or a series to fill out whatever area you choose. You may experience some swelling following the injections, and the fillers can take a few hours to show results. This swelling should subside after a few hours.


The results you get will be based on your aesthetic goals – whether it was fuller cheeks, frown creases gone, or lines filled in. Typically, the effect of injections lasts for a few months, but can last longer depending on the condition of your skin. You can maintain your results with regular treatments.

Which is Facial Filler Best for You?

The type of filler you require will depend on:

  • the area you would like treated.
  • your desired result.
  • which treatment your doctor thinks would work best.
