Our Selection of Dermal Fillers

Dr. Azar offers FDA-approved fillers that contain no animal proteins, so there is little to no risk of an allergic reaction. These fillers contain biocompatible substances that occur naturally in the body. During your consultation, Dr. Azar can help you visualize possible results using Vectra 3-D imaging. He will determine which of the following fillers, or combination of fillers, is best suited for the improvements you desire.

Juvéderm

Juvéderm injectable gel is a soft-tissue filler made of hyaluronic acid, which works with the moisture in your body to plump the skin and create a more youthful and vibrant appearance.[1] While experiences vary, results may last up to 12 months.

Juvéderm is the softest and most natural of currently available fillers, and it has the added benefit of being completely reversible. Juvéderm can be easily massaged and even dissolved with another simple injection.

Dr. Azar feels it is important that filler injections be performed in a setting where a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon can help with training, supervision and care of the patients. Our patients choose our practice for filler because not only is Dr. Azar an expert injector and certified trainer for Allergan, but he has personally trained our nurse injector and supervises her care of our patients. Our nurse has also attended Allergan trainings and is highly skilled.

There are many products in the Juvéderm family, each formulated for a precise outcome. For example, Juvéderm Volbella XC is a silky solution for aging lips. Juvéderm Volbella XC is ideal for vertical lip lines, enhancing the lip border. It is also ideal for patients who do not want to have a larger appearing lip, just more defined. Volbella XC is our filler of choice for addressing the tear trough. The “XC” in the product names indicates a small amount of lidocaine, which helps minimize discomfort during the injection process.

Juvéderm Voluma XC is designed to add volume to the cheeks. Juvéderm Vollure XC is specially made for the persistent lines that flank the nose and mouth. These are called nasolabial folds or “parentheses” because of their prominent curvature. Westlake Village Dermal Filler provider, Dr. Azar also offers Juvéderm Ultra XC to correct the perioral lines that appear around the mouth due to smoking and/or photoaging (exposure to the sun).

Restylane

Restylane is also made from hyaluronic acid. This natural formula works by using the body’s own moisture to add and maintain fullness and lubrication to the superficial layers of the skin. Much like Juvéderm, Restylane offers a wide array of varieties to address everything from thin lips to deep facial creases.[2] If you are interested in the many benefits of the Restylane line of fillers, we encourage you to reach out to our office today to learn more.

Eligible Candidates

If you are a healthy individual who wishes to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, then Dermal Fillers may be the perfect solution for you.

Non-smokers with realistic expectations are the ideal candidates for injectable treatments. Dermal Fillers may not be optimal if you have lax, excess skin. Westlake Village Dermal Filler provider, Dr. Azar may recommend an alternative approach, such as a facelift, to remove and tighten sagging skin. He can assess your eligibility for Dermal Fillers and/or other procedures during your comprehensive consultation.

What body areas do Dermal Fillers address?

Dermal Fillers are versatile cosmetic treatments used to address various concerns related to facial aging and volume loss. They are injected into specific areas of the face to restore volume, smooth lines, and wrinkles and enhance facial contours. Here are some of the common areas addressed by Dermal Fillers:

Nasolabial Folds

These lines go from the corner of the mouth to the side of the nose. Dermal Fillers help soften these lines, restoring volume, creating a youthful appearance.

Marionette Lines

FMarionette lines extend from the corner of the mouth downwards towards the chin, often giving a sad or tired appearance. Dermal Fillers help lift and fill these lines, reducing their prominence.

Cheeks

As people age, they may experience loss of volume in the cheeks, leading to a sunken or hollow appearance. Dermal Fillers can add volume to the cheeks, restoring a youthful contour and enhancing facial symmetry.

Under-Eye Hollows

The area under the eyes can develop hollows or dark circles due to age or genetics. Dermal Fillers can fill in these hollows and reduce the appearance of under-eye bags, bringing a refreshed look.

Lips

Dermal Fillers are commonly used to enhance the volume and definition of the lips. They can add fullness to thin lips, define the lip border, and reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines (smoker's lines).

Chin

Dermal Fillers can augment a receding or weak chin, providing better facial balance and harmony.

Temples

Hollowing of the temples can occur with age, leading to a gaunt or sunken appearance. Dermal Fillers can restore volume to the temples, rejuvenating the upper face.

Jawline

Dermal Fillers can be strategically placed along the jawline to enhance definition and improve the overall contour of the face.

Hands

The back of the hands can lose volume and develop wrinkles over time, making them appear aged. Dermal Fillers can plump up the hands, reducing the visibility of veins and wrinkles.

Scars

Dermal Fillers can improve the appearance of certain types of scars, such as acne or depressed scars, by filling in the indentation and creating a smoother skin surface.

How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost In Thousand Oaks?

The cost of a Dermal Filler depends on which product you request and how many units you need. Thousand Oaks Dermal Filler provider Dr. Azar will provide transparent pricing during your consultation. Please visit our financing page to learn more about our payment and credit options. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us online or call (805) 373-7073 with any questions.

Preparation

The Dermal Filler process is so straightforward that you may be ready for your first session immediately following your consultation.

In general, it is advisable to quit smoking in the weeks before and after your injection session. Tobacco products dry out the skin, which is counterproductive to the rehydrating, rejuvenating effects of Dermal Filler treatment.

The Dermal Filler Procedure

In accordance with the latest medical innovations, Dr. Azar performs filler injections with DermaSculpt blunt-tip microcannulas instead of traditional hypodermic needles. This technology minimizes – and often prevents – bruising and discomfort, especially in the delicate area around the eyes. With DermaSculpt, Dr. Azar can inject an entire lip, nasolabial fold, cheek or forehead using just 1 or 2 injection sites. A typical session lasts less than an hour, which has earned Dermal Fillers the nickname of a “lunchtime” procedure. The exact duration of your session will depend on the area being treated and the number of units required to produce your desired results.

Dermal Fillers Recovery

Aside from some minor redness and sensitivity at the injection site(s), there is little to no recovery time associated with Dermal Fillers. It may take 2-5 days for the solution of your choice to fully adapt to its new surroundings, but please do not rub or irritate the treatment area. Great results can’t be rushed!

Dermal Filler Results and Aftercare

The results of Dermal Filler treatments are typically noticeable immediately, with optimal outcomes becoming more apparent within two weeks as initial swelling subsides. Any filler injected into areas of high muscle activity, such as the lips, will not last as long as fillers injected into more passive areas. Results from Dermal Fillers will endure from six months to two years, depending on the type of filler you request. To get a preview of your future satisfaction, please visit our rave reviews page. We are humbled by our patients’ kind words, and we vow to provide you with the same 5-star treatment upon your arrival.

To maintain these results effectively, patients should refrain from touching or rubbing the treated area, apply cold compresses to reduce swelling, stay hydrated, avoid strenuous activities, limit sun exposure, attend follow-up appointments, avoid certain medications and supplements, and seek professional advice if experiencing any unusual symptoms. By adhering to these aftercare guidelines and maintaining regular communication with their provider, patients can maximize the longevity of their results and enjoy the benefits of a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Complementary and Alternative Procedures

Cosmetic improvement is all about balance. To accomplish your ideal results, consider the full suite of services offered at Azar Plastic Surgery and Med Spa. Many of Dr. Azar’s patients combine rhinoplasty, a brow lift, or cheek implants with injectable filler treatments to achieve even more dramatic enhancement.
