Please contact us now online or call us today at 310-657-2253 to schedule your dermal filler treatment.
Dermal fillers can provide temporary correction of lines and wrinkles on the mid to lower face, including smile lines, marionette lines, vertical folds down each side of the nose and vertical lines around the lips. They can also plump areas where volume has been lost, such as the lips, hollow cheeks, and tear troughs, or fill in blemishes like acne scars. At the Alessi Institute, we offer a range of filler products at affordable prices to give our patients flexibility and customize each treatment.
Our surgeons feel that each patient is unique which means the same popular filler may not be appropriate for everyone. Dr. Alessi uses each filler in a unique and artistic way; insuring that the product is specific to their individual needs and will provide them with the greatest benefits.
|JUVÉDERM: A leading dermal filler, JUVÉDERM comes in a variety of formulations for your cosmetic needs, including a formulation containing lidocaine for increased patient comfort. This smooth-consistency filler contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a key building block of healthy skin, and can provide results lasting six to nine months.|
|Restylane: Like JUVÉDERM, this filler also contains hyaluronic acid. One Restylane treatment can last up to 18 months, with only one follow-up treatment at either four and a half or nine months.|
|RADIESSE: RADIESSE is the ideal treatment for restoring lost volume and encouraging your body to rebuild its own natural collagen. This filler contains tiny calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a natural, water-based gel. Results may last a year or more.;|
|Sculptra Aesthetic: We recommend this filler for men and women who are focused on adding volume to areas such as their cheeks. Unlike other fillers, results are not seen immediately after treatment and several treatments are required over a period of several weeks. However, it is designed for results lasting up to two years.|
Other Non-Surgical Enhancements
Your dermal filler treatments can be combined easily with these and other enhancements that take only minutes to perform.
|BOTOX® Cosmetic: BOTOX can provide an additional way to freshen and smooth the skin on the forehead and around the eyes. In combination with dermal fillers, wrinkles on the entire face can be treated.|
|Laser Skin Rejuvenation: Reduce the appearance of skin imperfections such as age spots, sun damage, blotchy pigmentation, rosacea and large pores with Fraxel® or Photofacial technology.|
|FAB Facelift: This completely non-surgical procedure combines the wrinkle reduction of dermal fillers with the skin rejuvenation of laser light. Take years off your appearance without going under the knife!|
While dermal fillers can work wonders, they have their limits. Even today, there is no substitute for the long-lasting rejuvenation that facial plastic surgery can provide. At your consultation, you may want to learn more about procedures such as a face lift (to tighten sagging skin and tissue on the lower face and jaw line), neck lift (to tighten skin and remove fat below the chin) or a U-Lift™ (Dr. Alessi’s own minimally invasive face lift procedure for focused skin tightening).
