Downey dermatologist uses the best cosmetic fillers for optimal results

Cosmetic fillers soften lines and wrinkles. They are also injected into the skin to create a fuller appearance. These smoothing and plumping effects address changes to the skin that occur with the natural aging process. Unprotected exposure to UV rays or habits like smoking make damage caused by the natural aging process worse. Lines and sagging may show up prematurely, causing someone to look older than his or her chronological age.

While the same general motivations arise when discussing why fillers are injected into the skin, these cosmetic medications are differentiated by the following attributes:
  • Materials used
  • If the materials are biodegradable and absorbed naturally by the body or, conversely if they are non-absorbable
  • Similarly, the amount of time wrinkle-reducing, plumping results last
  • The thickness of the injectable solution
  • How the substance is made, such as if it occurs naturally in the body, is synthetic, or comes from an animal source
The cosmetic fillers considered the “best” on the market are typically:
  • Made from substances produced naturally by the body
  • Are biocompatible, meaning they don’t damage existing tissues
  • Have minimal side effects
  • Still achieve results
  • Are longer lasting
For the attributes listed above, Dr. Douglas Blose and his team have identified Juvéderm as the preferred dermal filler. This product is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a water-loving substance found naturally in the body. It lubricates the joints and acts as a shock absorber in the eye and to transport nutrients to the eyeball.

About half of the hyaluronic acid found in the body, however, is in the skin. Found in both the visible epidermis and deeper dermis, HA provides continual moisture to the skin. It is vital to the skin’s smoothness and elasticity, those features associated with a youthful, fresh appearance.

HA combined with water has a gel quality. When Dr. Blose and his staff inject this gel into the skin, they are effectively restoring the skin’s balance of this beneficial substance. There are fewer side effects caused by adverse interactions with living tissues. Fillers made from synthetic or animal sources are frequently associated with more risks, such as allergies or toxicity.
