Dermal Fillers in Restylane®, ArteFill®, and JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel
The development of fine lines and wrinkles on the face is an inevitable part of the natural aging process. These wrinkles can make an individual appear older, tired, and even angry. Fortunately, we provide the latest in non-surgical aesthetic treatment methods to help patients achieve a rejuvenated facial appearance. Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center in Bakersfield, Fresno and Malibu offers Restylane®, ArteFill®, and JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel treatments, which are highly-effective at eliminating lines and wrinkles on the face. Some of our advanced dermal fillers can also be used to enhance the lips and facial contours. Beautologie makes comfort and healing a priority with injectable treatments. Our Aesthetic Medicine Professionals offer a topical cream that numbs while promoting healing and reducing bruising. The result of our treatments is a younger, more refreshed facial appearance.
Our Bakersfield, Fresno and Malibu practices provide Restylane® injections to patients from Tehachapi, Fresno, Malibu, Visalia, and surrounding areas. One of the newest dermal treatments on the market today, Restylane® injections offer a safe approach to smoothing facial wrinkles and moisturizing the skin.
What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a clear biodegradable gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body. Hyaluronic acid fills in the spaces between collagen and elastin fibers to cushion soft tissue. Over time, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body decreases due to the natural aging process, contributing to the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Restylane® injections are used to help replace the hyaluronic acid, resulting in a more youthful facial appearance.
Restylane® Treatment Process
In performing the treatment, Dr. Milan Shah uses a thin needle to inject Restylane® into skin tissue. The hyaluronic acid in the gel draws in water, causing the tissue near the fine lines and wrinkles to swell and attain a smoother appearance. Because the needle is very fine, patients experience little to no pain during the treatment. The entire Restylane® procedure takes less than an hour, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. Because of this, Restylane® treatment is known as a "lunchtime" procedure. Restylane® injections can be combined with BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment for optimal aesthetic results.
Benefits of Restylane® Injections
Many patients in the Bakersfield, Fresno and Malibu areas choose to undergo Restylane® treatment because it safely and effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for an extended period of time. Wrinkles around the eyes, nose, and mouth seem to disappear following Restylane® treatment without the need for invasive surgical procedures such as a facelift, brow lift or eyelid surgery. Restylane® can also add volume to lips for a fuller and more sensual pout, and it can be used to shape facial contours. The effects of Restylane® last for up to twelve months, making it one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers on the market. Because Restylane® is non-animal based, the risk for an allergic reaction is minimal.

JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel
At our Bakersfield, Fresno and Malibu practices, in addition to Restylane® injections, we offer treatment with JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel as a safe and effective alternative to animal-based dermal fillers. Recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration, JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that helps to smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of unsightly facial lines and wrinkles for an extended period of time. Because JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is slowly absorbed by the body, patients who undergo treatment enjoy healthier and younger-looking skin for up to nine months.
JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel Process
JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is administered at our Bakersfield, Fresno and Malibu practices by Dr. Milan Shah in the same way as Restylane® injections. Because of the smooth consistency of the gel, patients experience little to no discomfort during treatment. The procedure lasts less than an hour and results can be seen immediately. For more information on treatment with JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel, contact Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center today.
Our practice is proud to offer ArteFill® injections, the first and only FDA-approved permanent wrinkle filler on the market. Also known as Artecoll®, the dermal filler has been used throughout Europe and Canada to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Unlike Restylane® and JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel, ArteFill® is made of polymethylmethacrylate beads suspended in bovine collagen. The beads stimulate the production of collagen in the body, and as the solution degrades, it is replaced by the body's natural collagen. Because of this, ArteFill® provides permanent results.
ArteFill® Injections Process
Dr. Milan Shah injects ArteFill® through a very thin needle directly into the area needing treatment. The entire ArteFill® treatment process takes less than an hour. Results are immediately apparent, and patients can return to their daily activities after their appointment.
