Four Fabulous Fillers to Try in Your Forties

Capable of addressing several age-related aesthetic concerns, these little powerhouses can lift, smooth, and contour the face for optimal symmetry and ageless beauty – and all without incisions, sutures, or lengthy downtime.

However, while dermal fillers are, generally speaking, remarkably safe and effective, not each type of filler is ideal for every need. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of fillers at our comfortable Los Angeles office, so we can meet the unique concerns of each person who walks through our doors. Learning which filler is right for you is as easy as coming in for an evaluation with one of our experienced and board-certified dermatologists.

Addressing Early Signs of Aging

As you enter your forties, your body’s natural collagen production slows. This can make your previously youthful face look flat, hollow, or tired (or all three). Add to reduced collagen production things like gravity, genetics, and environmental factors, and it is very common to start noticing more progressive signs of aging at this point in life. Fortunately, many issues caused by aging skin can be reversed entirely through the thoughtful and precise application of an appropriate filler.

Fillers we may recommend in your forties include:

  • JUVÉDERM®, a family of hyaluronic acid fillers that stimulate collagen production while restoring moisture to the skin.
  • Sculptra®, a filler that utilizes poly-lactic acid microparticles to stimulate collagen production and improve the volume of the skin.
  • Restylane®, another family of hyaluronic acid fillers that stimulate collagen production, Restylane fillers contain cross-linking technology to increase skin elasticity as well.
  • Radiesse®, a filler compromised of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres that helps improve the underlying structure of the skin while enhancing collagen production for lasting results

In addition to these time-tested fillers, we are pleased to offer RHA® Designer fillers, which can treat dynamic and static wrinkles, reducing the need for additional treatments.

In your forties, fifties, and beyond, dermal fillers can lift sagging cheeks, restore volume to sunken temples and tear troughs, and smooth fine lines as well as deep wrinkles. Some can add volume to the lips, and others can be used on the back of the hands as well, but all can produce reliable results for months.
