FILLERS

What are fillers?

There are a number of fillers available on the market.  For example, JUVEDERM™, RESTYLANE®, PERLANE® are fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in all living organisms.

Hyaluronic acid is an important component of youthful, supple, elastic skin.  It hydrates the skin by holding water, and acts as a cushion and lubricant to reduce damage to the skin.  Hyaluronic acid is also involved with the transport of essential nutrients to the skin’s viable cells. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide long-lasting results.

As a result of aging, our cells gradually lose the ability to produce hyaluronic acid. Studies have shown that older skin typically has lower levels of hyaluronic acid than younger skin.

By adding the fillers, the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid levels are restored, re-creating that youthful appearance.

The fillers listed here are considered safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. Each filler is biosynthetic and of non-animal origin, and has been proven to be safe and effective for skin of all types and colors.

RASIESSE

Rasiesse is a safe, FDA-approved dermal filler that restores a natural, youthful look and lasts for up to a year or more. Radiesse® is composed of smooth round microspheres in a gel carrier. It is injected into the skin through a simple, safe and minimally invasive procedure. This convenient treatment fills and corrects smile or laugh lines and nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.

For the longest-lasting correction of deep nasolabial folds (laugh lines), Radiesse is a successful instant-result injectable implant, lasting 1 to 2 years. It can also be used to augment cheek bones or redefine the chin. It is additionally the treatment of choice to restore volume to photo-aged hands in an easy, virtually painless procedure.

SCULPTRA

Sulptra helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds that appear with aging, by replacing lost collagen. Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace this lost collagen. Its main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.

Note: This is not an overnight miracle or a quick-fix. It is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. As it replaces your lost collagen, it gives you a more natural-looking appearance, without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last up to two years.

The correct filler choice for you depends on your facial contour, the volume needed to correct, and the anatomical site being injected. It goes without saying that an initial consultation with a professional to choose the correct combination of products for you is just as important as the precise placement of each filler in the face.

I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing...

I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work...

Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!

Whereever Dr. Kormeili goes, my mom and I follow her. I highly recommend her. My visits are always a great experience.

I started seeing the sad signs of aging. I come all the way from Italy, 3 times a year to get Botox, fillers… and of course my VI Peels. I have seen a huge difference. Dr. Kormeili is the best! I love her!!!

I had multiple warts on my hands and legs for the past 5 years. It was just something I learned to live with. I moved so sunny Los Angeles and decided it was time to take care of this embarrassing problem. I had appt’s with a few dermatologists, but once I found Dr. Kormeili I knew I wanted her to treat me...

I had sun damaged skin with several sun spots on my face. My entire attention was on my face, and I worried what people were thinking when they looked at me. I’m a vice president in banking and image is very important especially in the leadership role I am in. I saw Dr. Kormeili 4 months ago...

~M.M., Torrence

I absolutely love this Dr. She is so honest. My skin looks great and I feel so happy with her service and recommendations.

~M.M. Santa Monica

I was working a lot and very stressed out. One day I looked up in the mirror and I had look like I had aged about 10 years and as a woman we like to stay looking young. So a friend referred me to Dr. Kormeili for a little Botox and fillers. She was great! She took care of everything that was bothering me and then some...

~D.E., Whittier

How can someone be sad around Dr. Kormeili? She is a burst of sunshine but most of all she cares about her patients. Dr. Kormeili knew and worked on my husband before he recently passed away. He would rave about her care and skill when he had work on his face done by her. I went to Dr. Kormeili after my husband passed away...

I had been taking antibiotic medicines for over 2 years to help control my acne; once I was prescribed Accutane in less than 3 months my face was completely gone. Of course before taking Accutane I was constantly aware of my skin, always trying to find ways to hide it and sometimes it got so hard I didn’t even want to go to school....

~C.J., Los Angeles

SHE IS THE BEST! Considerate, compassionate and thoroughly professional.

~V.L. Santa Monica

Sexual intercourse is such an integral part of a happy marriage. After months of “grin and bear it” with vaginal irritation, I mentioned my problem of having intercourse to my primary care doctor and then to my OBGYN. The good news was that the biopsy was not cancerous, however the bad news was that it was lichen...
