Other Injectable Fillers

Los Angeles, Pasadena, Covina, Arcadia, & Hollywood, California

Cosmetic injectables are commonly used to restore a younger appearance for patients who suffer from the most visible signs of aging. We offer many of the most popular injectable fillers at Pasadena Cosmetic Surgery, including:

These dermal fillers are effective options for individuals who wish to eliminate fine lines, deep folds, and other wrinkles present on the face. They are also effective at providing more definition and creating more appealing facial contours, and they make great alternative or complementary treatments to the other facial plastic surgery procedures offered at Pasadena Cosmetic Surgery.

ArteFill®

ArteFill® is the first and only permanent wrinkle filler on the market approved by the FDA. Also going by the name of Artecoll®, ArteFill can treat the appearance of wrinkles prevalent in the nose and mouth areas. ArteFill uses polymethylmethacrylate beads that are suspended in bovine collagen, which in turn stimulate the body's natural production of collagen. As the injection of ArteFill degrades, it gets replaced by the body's natural collagen, allowing for permanent results.

Facial Fat Transfer

For patients who wish to transform the their faces but are not ready for invasive procedures such as a face lift, rhinoplasty, or brow lift surgery, Dr. O'Toole provides facial fat transfer to produce a younger looking and more defined appearance. Facial fat transfer involves using a patient's own fat to fill in wrinkles and add more volume to various areas of the face such as the lips or the region under the eyes. It is also an effective and minimally invasive alternative to traditional chin augmentation and cheek augmentation surgery. In addition, facial fat transfer can be used to fill in facial scars and other depressions, providing you with a more even complexion.

During the facial fat transfer procedure, liposuction techniques are used to collect fat cells from other areas of the body, usually from the abdomen, hips, or thighs. The cells are then cleaned and injected into targeted areas of the face to produce more aesthetically pleasing contours. Results from facial fat transfer tend to last longer than those from BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, and our other facial rejuvenation procedures because the treatment uses your own fat tissue. As a result, many patients choose to combine facial fat transfer with the other injectable treatments we offer, allowing them to enjoy enhanced results.
