Benefits of Facial Fillers

Dermal fillers, also known as facial fillers, are a convenient and effective way to create a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are FDA approved and are very safe when administered by a medical professional such as Westlake Village facial surgeon Dr. Tansavatdi. Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment that can take 5 to 10 years of life off your face, with almost no downtime. Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular choice for individuals who want to improve the signs of aging.

What do dermal fillers do?

With age comes visible lines around the eyes, nose, and mouth, as well as loss of volume in certain areas of the face. Cheekbones become less defined, lips lose some of their fullness, and wrinkles begin to appear. Many people feel that these changes make them look older and more tired. Facial fillers improve these trouble spots.

They are administered using a fine needle and can reduce wrinkles ranging anywhere in severity from fine lines to deep folds. Dermal fillers are also used to restore volume loss in the cheeks, the mid-face, and lips. As a result, patients look younger and more rested, without the downtime required with plastic surgery. Treatments are also more convenient, sometimes taking as little as 15 minutes. 

How do dermal fillers work?

The skin changes that come along with aging can include a decrease in collagen, elastin, and hyaluron—which means that your skin loses much of its firmness, elasticity, strength, and hydration as you get older. Dermal fillers contain specially formulated products that return these elements to your skin. When properly used, facial fillers can reduce visible lines, plump up hollow cheeks, and increase volume in the lips. The result is that your face will appear much more youthful and rested.

The only way to know for sure which one is right for your specific needs is to have a consultation with Dr. Tansavatdi so that she can evaluate your facial anatomy and discuss your aesthetic goals.

Who should administer dermal fillers?

Finding the right type of facial filler for your specific goals is important, but it’s even more important to make sure you’re working with the right medical professional. Injecting facial fillers requires much more than knowing how to use a needle, and it’s of the utmost importance to find an experienced doctor. To start with, the correct amount of filler needs to be injected into the precise area of your facial anatomy, at the appropriate depth within your skin. If someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing injects you improperly, you will not be pleased with your appearance, and you may experience unpleasant side effects.

Thousand Oaks facial surgeon Dr. Tansavatdi has the skill, artistry, and knowledge of facial anatomy that is needed to create a well balanced, natural look using dermal fillers. She is double board certified by the American Academy of Otolaryngology (Head and Neck Surgery) and the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Tansavatdi also published an article in a prestigious medical journal to help other practitioners use dermal fillers. If you’re in the Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks area and interested in facial fillers, Dr. Tansavatdi is the ideal provider for you.

Dr. Kristina Tansavatdi offers the following dermal fillers:


Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid-based soft tissue filler that restores volume and fills in various facial depressions, including scars. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the soft tissue of the entire body, and therefore the risks of an allergic reaction or similar adverse side effect are minimized. Restylane is used to plump the lips and other areas of the face. It’s also an excellent treatment for facial volume restoration, and can fill lines and hollows. Restylane results are fully evident within one week, and can last up to six months.

Restylane Silk

Restylane Silk is the first FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler designed to enhance lips for a natural appearance and smooth lines and wrinkles around the mouth. The silky-smooth gel formulation allows for a subtle result and is designed for precise lip definition and line control. Restylane Silk may also be used to address fine vertical lip lines that can cause a more aged appearance and  lipstick feathering, and can also be used to plump the lips

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft (formerly known as Perlane-L®) is a safe and effective non-surgical alternative to creating a subtle, natural looking lift to sagging cheeks and moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. As part of the natural aging process, we lose volume in our cheeks. This volume loss contributes to smile lines, skin laxity, and facial folds. Restylane Lyft is is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel that can provide long-lasting results for adding volume to the cheeks and other areas of the face.


Like Restylane, Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid-based filler. Juvederm comes in several formulas, including Juvederm Ultra (ideal for lips and mild wrinkles) and Juvederm Ultra Plus (ideal for jaw contouring and facial lines). These different types of Juvederm vary in strength for treatment of mild, moderate, and severe facial wrinkles. Juvederm delivers the best results when used to treat nasolabial folds, marionette lines, smile lines, and vertical lip lines. Results are visible immediately. The longevity of results depends on the formula used and varies from one person to another.

Juvederm Voluma

As we age, the cheek area loses its youthful shape and the lower face begins to appear heavier. Juvederm Voluma XC is the first and only FDA approved filler to correct age related volume loss in the mid-face. Voluma uses VYCROSS™ technology and contains a thick, strong gel, which gives it the ability to provide supportive structure for the face and improve the appearance of sunken cheeks and other areas where the skin may be sagging. With optimal treatment, natural looking results may last up to two years. 

Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra® is the only FDA approved facial injectable that works to stimulate the growth of your own collagen, and provides results that can last for more than two years. Facial collagen loss is a natural part of the aging process. It can decrease elasticity and moisture to the skin, giving you an aged appearance. To achieve optimal results, typically a minimum of 3 to 4 vials is recommended and scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart for full correction of shallow to deep nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles.


Radiesse® is commonly used to treat smile lines around the outer portion of the lips, marionette lines that extend from the corners of the mouth toward the chin, lines at the corners of the mouth, and the area on either side of the chin. It can also be used to restore volume in the cheeks and face. Radiesse results are usually visible right away, and may last up to two years. In some cases, repeat injections are recommended for maintenance. Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village facial surgeon Dr. Tansavatdi has extensive experience in using Radiesse, and has authored an article published in a prominent medical journal to help other practitioners on this subject.

Juvederm Volbella

Juvederm Volbella is made of the thinnest, most spreadable of the Juvederm gels. It uses uses VYCROSS™ technology and works very well to treat fine lines, such as vertical lines at the lips, laugh lines, or the delicate area underneath the eyes. It also has lasting results as a lip filler. While many lip fillers last around six months, Juvederm Volbella lasts for up to twelve, making it one of the longest-lasting fillers available. 

Juvederm Vollure

Juvederm Vollure is made of a medium-thick gel and is ideal for treating marionette lines at the mouth, wrinkles, under-eye bags, and thin lips. Like Juvederm Voluma and Volbella, Juvederm Vollure also uses uses VYCROSS™ technology to ensure a smoother, natural looking result with long-lasting results. VYCROSS technology also makes injections more comfortable.

Restylane Refyne & Defyne

If you have lots of laugh lines, Restylane Defyne or Refyne may be the right facial filler for you. Defyne addresses deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines using XpresHAn Technology™. This technology improves facial lines without taking away the natural movement in your face. Restylane Refyne uses the same technology and treats the same areas that have less severe signs of aging.

If you're unsatisfied with your dermal filler results, it's essential to communicate openly with your provider. Depending on the filler used and the issue, options may include massaging the area, adding more filler, or potentially reversing the effects with an enzyme injection.
