Dermal Fillers & Injectables
THE BODY SCULPT CLINIC PROCESS IS HOLLYWOOD'S BEST KEPT SECRET
At BodySculpt Clinic we specialize in a variety of cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers designed to help smooth wrinkles, restore lost volume, and reduce the signs of aging in the face, neck, and hands.
How does aging affect the skin?
As we grow older, the appearance, tone, and texture of our skin are affected by both intrinsic and external factors. Aging skin produces less of the natural proteins and sugars that help to keep the skin looking young and healthy. At the same time, environmental factors and lifestyle choices (such as sun damage and smoking), can hasten the breakdown of key skin components.
Over time, the natural stores of collagen (which provide structural support and firmness), elastin (which provides elasticity), hyaluronic acid (which helps to keep the skin hydrated), and natural fat (which provides youthful fullness) are slowly depleted. As the skin becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic, it begins to sag, allowing wrinkles and deep creases to form. Areas of lost volume can make the face appear hollow and gaunt, and once smooth transition zones between the eyes, cheeks, nose, and lips can become more pronounced as soft tissue volume dissipates.
How do cosmetic injectables reduce the signs of aging?
Cosmetic injectables can help temporarily reduce the signs of aging in the skin, leaving you looking younger and more refreshed. There are a wide variety of cosmetic injectables that work in different ways to help smooth lines and wrinkles while replacing lost structure and volume.
- Neurotoxins (BOTOX® , Dysport®, and XEOMIN®), which relax the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles
- Hyaluronic acid fillers (Perlane®, Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Revanese®, Belotero®, Voluma™ XC), which help to restore lost volume
- Collagen stimulators (Sculptra®, RADIESSE®), which help to restore the underlying structure of the skin
- Autologous injections (Natural Fat, LAVIV™), which replace natural fat and fibroblasts, respectively, to restore youthful fullness and skin structure
Which cosmetic injectable is right for me?
Not only do the various fillers work differently, they may also be best suited for injection in different facial areas, as well as at diverse depths. Understanding when and where to use specific filler is vital to achieving the best results. As a board-certified dermatologist with expertise in cosmetic dermatology and facial rejuvenation, we understand not only how each filler works individually, but also how they can be used synergistically as part of advanced layering techniques to provide the most youthful and natural-looking results.
For example, we may elect to use one filler in the deep dermis to provide a structural foundation, another in the mid-dermis to replace lost volume, and a superficial filler to help smooth away surface lines and wrinkles. We will meet with you to discuss your goals and help you determine the filler, or combination of fillers, best suited to your specific needs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are Dermal Fillers?
As we age, we lose collagen and elasticity in the skin, which causes deep folds and sagging. Dermal Fillers are biocompatible, injectable gels that create lift and add volume to key areas of the face where our age tends to show the most. Depending on the filler and its efficacy they can temporarily freeze muscles or fill-in wrinkles in the brow, cheek and chin area. Dermal fillers are carefully injected into the dermis with a fine needle; the entire process takes 30 minutes or less, results are instant, and the procedure is made comfortable with the use of topical lidocaine.
What areas can Cosmetic Injectables Treat?
Cosmetic injectables can be used in a wide variety of places for effective facial contouring and rejuvenation. Certain fillers may also be used to reduce the signs of aging in the lips and hands. Some common treatment areas include:
