4 Reasons to Consider Dermal Fillers

4 Reasons to Consider Dermal Fillers

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Maybe your eyes are drawn to the lines around your nose. Maybe you focus on sunken cheeks. Or maybe your lips have lost their pout.

Everyone experiences facial changes as they age, but not everyone is happy to accept it. Skin naturally loses elasticity and volume, and it might make you feel older, less confident, or even embarrassed.

The good news is that you don’t have to live with features that bother you. Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure to restore volume and youthful bounce to your skin.

As an expert aesthetician, Daniel Moghadam, MD, leads a team of beauty specialists at Modern Aesthetica in Santa Monica, California. We’re proud to offer all the best dermal fillers, including Juvéderm® and Restylane®.

If there’s something about your appearance that bothers you, we’re here to help. Read on to learn more about some of the biggest benefits of dermal fillers and why they’re consistently popular in our office.

Erase lines and wrinkles

Aging skin is drier and more delicate than youthful skin. And as you get older, gravity takes its toll — skin begins to sag, and lines and wrinkles form.

Nasolabial folds are some of the deepest and most bothersome facial wrinkles. They appear as skin sags around your nose and mouth, and they’re also called marionette lines, smile lines, and parenthesis.


If nasolabial folds bother you, fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane can help you fight back. Both of these fillers contain hyaluronic acid gel to restore volume and fill in pesky wrinkles.

Restore youthful volume

Facial wrinkles are often accentuated by sunken cheeks and thinning lips. As your skin gets more delicate, you also start to lose the layer of volumizine fat below the surface. The result? A tired, aged-looking appearance and embarrassing lipstick lines. 

Dermal fillers counteract this natural volume loss by replacing fat with hyaluronic acid. Our team specializes in Juvedérm® VOLBELLATM to target volume loss in your lips and Juvéderm® VOLUMATM to plump cheeks.

Enjoy natural-looking results

Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in skin. It’s a humectant, which means it draws moisture in. Because many dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, they can enhance your skin’s natural moisture retention and volume. Plus, our aesthetic team specializes in personalized filler treatment plans to enhance your natural features without making you look overdone.

Depending on the type of filler you choose and the area we treat, your results may last between four months and two years. We offer touch-ups and continuing care, so if you love your results, you can continue to enjoy your smoother skin for as long as you want.

Benefit from zero downtime

Dermal fillers are minimally invasive, so you don’t have to undergo cosmetic surgery or long recovery times to enjoy a refreshed look. In fact, dermal fillers generally have zero down time required and you can go back to your usual routine right away.

Whether you choose Juvéderm, Restylane, or another filler, your results are immediately noticeable. Hyaluronic acid instantly fills in creases and adds volume under your skin, so you walk out of our office with juicier, plumper skin.

Aging happens to everyone, but dermal fillers can help you feel confident in your skin again. Schedule a consultation at Modern Aesthetica to find out what fillers can do for you. Call our office at 310-975-3918 or send us a message online now.
