Manhattan Beach Injectable Fillers

Over time, the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and years of facial muscle movement from smiling, chewing, and squinting become permanently etched into our skin. These environmental and everyday actions break down the underlying supports that keeps our skin looking youthful and plumped up. The result is visible evidence of our age that includes:

  • Laugh lines
  • Smile lines
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Facial creases
  • Hollowing under the eyes
  • Sunken cheeks

Dr. Granzow recommends injectable fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane and Voluma, to patients who want a non-surgical way to smooth the appearance of the lines and wrinkles that accumulate as we age. He focuses on achieving significant but natural appearing changes without an “overdone” look.

What Do Injectable Fillers Restore?

Hyaluronic acid naturally exists in the body and one of the main components of our skin. It is a universal compound that fills the spaces between the cells of body tissues. As we age, we lose the hyaluronic acid present in our body and with it the moisture that it retains. This loss leads to volume loss that leaves us with a sunken and depleted look typically seen in more mature adults.

By using injectable fillers with hyaluronic acid, we replenish parts of our face that have diminished with age. This results in a face that can be:

  • Firmer
  • Smoother
  • More youthful
  • Less hollowed
  • Has less skin sag 

Dr. Granzow has extensive experience treating patients with injectable fillers and spends time to understand you needs. He will prepare an individualized treatment plan and timeline for touch-ups so you maintain your results for as long as possible. Dr. Granzow can also use injectable fillers to add natural-looking fullness to your face and cheeks.

Why Should I Use Injectable Filler?

The main reason Manhattan Beach patients choose injectable fillers for their treatment is their effectiveness in non-surgically treating wrinkles and lines. Because hyaluronic acid is present in your body, there is minimal risk of allergic reaction and your body naturally breaks it down over time.

How Long Will Results Last?

Injectable fillers have an immediate effect on your appearance, and you will notice a difference right after treatment. Most Manhattan Beach patients see results that last for many months. Some aspects that will affect your results are:

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Skin quality
  • Lifestyle

During your initial consultation, Dr. Granzow will take the time to review your medical background and help you choose the right treatment for your cosmetic needs. Some individuals’ bodies are more receptive to one substance than another or certain parts of the face respond better to specific treatments.
