As we grow older, we lose fat volume in the face and the collagen content of the skin diminishes. Lines and wrinkles begin to appear. Deep folds develop around the nose and the mouth, and cheek contours become shallower.
At Cara Plastic Surgery & Laser Center in Los Angeles, we perform facial filler injections for patients who are not ready to undergo surgery. This minimally invasive treatment can help “turn back the clock” to a more youthful, aesthetically pleasing facial appearance.
What Is Scar Reconstruction?
Scar revision surgery, also known as scar reconstruction, is performed to minimize the appearance of scars so they are less conspicuous. While scars cannot be removed completely, the goal of reconstruction is to make them better blend with surrounding skin tone and texture.
What Can Facial Fillers Do?
Dermal fillers are an excellent treatment to minimize the early signs of aging and to extend the results of facial plastic surgery. They can be used to:
- Soften wrinkles and creases in the face
- Add volume to the cheeks
- Enhance shallow facial contours
- Plump up the lips and enhance shape and definition
- Decrease the shadow of the lower lids
- Fill in nasolabial folds (from the nose mouth corners)
- Minimize marionette lines (along the sides of the chin)
Types of Facial Fillers
There are many facial fillers available today. Popular brands include:
- Prevelle Silk
Each dermal filler has its own particular uses and treatment recommendations. For example, in the Juvéderm family of facial fillers, Juvéderm Voluma XC is used to add volume to the cheeks, Juvéderm Vollure XC is used to treat parentheses lines and folds, and Juvéderm Volbella XC is used to plump up the lips and soften vertical lip lines.
Hyaluronic Acid Facial Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body. It delivers nutrients to the skin, adds volume, and helps the skin retain moisture. Juvéderm, Restylane, and other state-of-the-art facial fillers are made from a modified, biocompatible form of hyaluronic acid. These fillers can help hydrate the skin and improve definition.
No Downtime with Facial Fillers
A major benefit of facial filler treatments in Orange County is that they require no downtime. This “lunch hour procedure” can be performed in as little as 10 or 15 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. The patient can return to work and normal activities immediately after the procedure.

With dermal fillers, you can take years off your appearance in a quick, convenient procedure with no downtime, without undergoing surgery. Injected properly, facial fillers produce subtle, natural-looking results, so you never look as though you’ve had “work done.” It takes great skill, and deep understanding of facial muscle structure, balance, and harmony to correctly use facial fillers. We urge you to meet with our professionals to talk about facial rejuvenation with fillers.
