Injectables and Fillers
Anti-aging physician and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Andre Berger uses injectables such as volume enhancement facial fillers and muscle balancing neurotoxins to correct undesirable signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin, depleted volume, creases and folds. An advanced injector and certified trainer for Suneva the makers of Bellafill, a long lasting filler solution, Dr. Berger often uses unique combinations of facial fillers to sculpt and lift the face, restore lost volume, and produce a noticeably more youthful and natural appearance. During your initial consultation at our Beverly Hills office Dr. Berger will carefully evaluate your areas of concern and discuss all of your options to ensure that you are receiving the most effective solution(s) for your needs.
Hyaluronic Acid Wrinkle Fillers
Some of the dermal/facial fillers Dr. Berger uses are hyaluronic acid (HA) – a viscous fluid carbohydrate present in connective tissue and essential for youthful looking skin – to restore depleted volume and to stimulate collagen production and soften the appearance of fine lines and deeper wrinkles. Some of the most popular HA fillers offered by Dr. Berger include:
- Belotero Balance®
- Restylane® Silk
- Voluma™ XC
Longer Lasting Wrinkle Fillers
In addition to HA filers that both volumize and stimulate collagen production, Dr. Berger offers the longer lasting filler solutions such as Radiesse®, Sculptra® and BellaFill® (formerly ArteFill®) to restore volume loss, and address fine and deeper lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity lasting from 12 months to to 5+ years. Like HA fillers, these longer lasting solution products work with your body to restore lost volume and produce natural-looking results.
Longer lasting injectable fillers are universally safe and FDA approved, and utilize compounds that do not occur naturally in the body to produce noticeable natural yet longer lasting results. Certain of these fillers can also significantly reduce even deeper folds and creases, often making them better suited longer lasting correction of pronounced signs of aging. Fillers of this type available from Dr. Berger include:
Longer lasting fillers are generally very safe and well-tolerated, but may not be right for every patient. During your non-surgical facelift consultation Dr. Berger will be able to help you determine if they are suitable for your particular needs.
Botulinum Toxin Type A (Toxins)
Botulinum toxin type A is the active ingredient in:
- BOTOX Cosmetic®
Unlike dermal fillers that produce a soft and full appearance by replacing lost volume, toxins produce a smooth appearance by interrupting the nerve signals that cause muscles to tense. When these muscles are relaxed, the skin over them can also relax, reducing the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles alike. While not as long lasting as facial fillers, these injectables can produce a tighter, lifted, and more youthful look for several months at a time.
Autologous Wrinkle Fillers and Volumizers
Autologous wrinkle fillers utilize substances from your own body to produce a more youthful appearance – and often lasts for several years. Fat transfer facelift and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are the two most popular options in this category. Dr. Berger may recommend one or both depending on your specific needs and for those who want to use substances from their own body.
