There are various types of facial fillers which have been applied and used in different areas of the face for varying reasons. We offer our patients the following injectable fillers: Voluma XC, Juvederm, and Restylane. Restylane is used to treat hollows and sunken areas of the face, especially underneath the eyes. It is essentially filling the empty sunken under eye area that so many people try to treat with under eye creams. Dr. Firouz knows the appropriate amount of filler to use and applies the filler slowly and evenly to make sure he is not utilizing too much. The results of the Restylane filler can be seen for up to one year.
A filler to enhance the cheeks and contour them is called Voluma XC. It works by enhancing lost volume simply with an injection. The results of Voluma can be seen for longer, and can last up to two years.
Juvederm is a dermal filler that can be injected into the skin on the jawline to shape the chin..
Risks of Using a Dermal Filler with an Unqualified Physician
A risk of using a dermal filler with a physician who is not careful, is the unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The risk of this is low but if it does occur, it can cause severe damage including vision abnormalities and scarring of the skin. Using dermal fillers where pimples, sores, cysts or other infections are present can delay the healing of the skin and are not recommended. It is advisable to have a trained professional administer any dermal fillers. Contact Dr. Jimmy Firouz’s office to be seen by one of Beverly Hills top board-certified plastic surgeons.
