Dermal fillers, also called soft-tissue fillers, are a category of FDA-approved injectables that add volume beneath the surface of the skin. Along with skin sagging and loss of elasticity, volume loss is a normal part of aging. The loss of volume leads to deep facial folds and wrinkles, hollows across the face, as well as skin that is less smooth.
Dermal fillers help to create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face, including nasolabial folds (the lines extending from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth), cheeks, chin, lips, and back of the hands.
A dermal filler is a great alternative to surgery and offers clients a way to maintain a youthful look without going under the knife.
At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser, we offer the following dermal fillers:

Juvederm Voluma is designed specifically to treat the mid-face area with additional abilities beyond plumping lines and wrinkles; it was specifically designed to restore and lift the cheek area which has lost its shape due to normal aging. The amount of volume lost varies from patient to patient, and more drastic losses result in obvious and undesired changes to the face. This product was developed to be smoother than other hyaluronic acid fillers, making it easier to inject during treatment and resulting in a soft, natural look and feel by restoring volume lost during the natural aging process.
Juvederm® Volux is the first and only FDA-approved gel filler designed to temporarily improve the jawline’s appearance in patients with moderate-to-severe loss of definition.

Many patients have seen results that lasted 9 – 12 months with optimal treatment.
