The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lists dermal fillers as approved treatments for replacing lost volume in the skin that can occur in various body parts as we age. For example, many of us undoubtedly see wrinkles, age lines, crow’s feet, sagging cheeks, and similar signs of aging in the skin as we get older. This often comes as a result of the loss of soft tissue volume beneath the surface of our skin. Essentially, the production of collagen, which is a protein that gives structure to much of our body, declines over time. Without this structural protein, our skin wrinkles and sags more easily.
Dermal fillers are also known as “injectable implants” because they are injections that help to boost skin volume. However, they are far less invasive than an actual implant. Some kinds of fillers don’t even remain in the skin for very long. Instead, they activate the production of more collagen in order to restore a full, youthful appearance. Some of the most common areas of the body that are aided by the use of fillers include:
- Backs of hands
- Under the eyes

Our Available Filler Treatments
Depending on your cosmetic needs, you might want to pursue different brands of fillers. That’s because different dermal fillers work in different ways and are suited to different situations. Below are just a few of the options on offer at Glow Aesthetic Center. Of course, before we provide a treatment, we will discuss all options with you and make sure that you are completely comfortable.
We use several types of fillers developed by Juvéderm. These include:
Juvéderm uses the active ingredient hyaluronic acid to achieve results. This compound, also known as HA, is a naturally-occurring compound in our bodies. It is associated with moisture retention in our skin, but its production slows as we get older. These gel fillers boost moisture in our skin, giving us that youthful glow while providing volume to replace lost soft tissue.
Radiesse fillers at Glow Aesthetic Center include dermal fillers based on active ingredient calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). CaHA is also a natural compound that is found in our bodies. It is a thicker filler that suspends nearly microscopic spheres of CaHA. Perfect for the backs of hands, Radiesse fillers can also be used to smooth out deeper wrinkles and age lines.
Also known as a non-surgical butt lift, Sculptra uses a different compound called Poly-L-lactic acid. This compound has been in use in the medical world for decades, especially in dissolvable surgical stitches. It dissolves safely within the body, usually after a few days. You might wonder how it can provide replacement for lost volume if it dissolves. It’s able to do this because its primary mechanic is to boost the natural collagen production of your skin.
In other words, Sculptra dermal fillers can help your skin replace its own lost volume with new collagen production. Results can last up to two years before it’s time to get a touch up.
Long-Lasting Results Made Longer
Fillers can last quite a long time, but nothing is permanent. You will likely need to have another treatment at Glow Aesthetic Center anywhere from six months to two years after your initial Tarzana filler treatment. Hyaluronic acid fillers usually need more frequent touch-ups, whereas Sculptra and other Poly-L-lactic acid fillers can last longer. In any case, there are some steps you can take to prolong your results. In general, try to live as healthy a lifestyle as possible. A holistic approach to health can be good for your skin and prolong the life of your fillers.
- Drink Lots of Water: this is particularly true for HA fillers, as the compound craves water.
- Stay Out of the Sun: it’s okay to have some beach time, but make sure you cover yourself with at least 30 SPF sunscreen and wear a hat to block harmful UV rays.
- Reduce Your Stress: stress can take a toll on your skin in more ways than one, so try to meditate, cut out stressful situations when possible, and practice mindfulness.
- Eat Well: junk food can cause a cascade of bad effects that alter your hormones and the production of healthy collagen, so eat plenty of greens and fruits.
