Cosmetic Injectables & Liquid Facelifts For Healthier Skin
Wrinkle Relaxers & Dermal Fillers in Beverly Hills, CAOver time, your skin loses its youthful fullness, gets wrinkles, and begins to look tired and weathered. Facial fillers and injectables, like Botox, Belotero, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane allow you to turn back the clock on wrinkles and skin damage.
However, facial fillers and cosmetic injectables are only effective, if a skilled plastic surgeon applies the treatment. When inexperienced cosmetic surgeons apply fillers and injectables, they can look unnatural and sometimes even worse than the original skin damage. Dr. Gary Takowsky in Beverly Hills has over 30 years of plastic surgery experience. With an eye for beautiful and natural results, he offers cosmetic fillers and injectables that can restore your skin back to its youthful state.
Relaxing Wrinkles with BOTOX®BOTOX® is a popular cosmetic injectable that has a variety of physical and aesthetic benefits. BOTOX helps relax furrowed brows, wrinkled foreheads, and other facial wrinkles. It can also help prevent migraine headaches, overactive bladders, muscle spasms and excessive sweating. When administered correctly, BOTOX can make you face look young and energized. When BOTOX is administered incorrectly by less experienced practitioners, it can leave you with a facial expression that does not seem to change or convey emotion.
Choosing the Right Plastic Surgeon for BOTOX®As a well trained cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Gary Takowsky properly administers the right amount of BOTOX in the appropriate areas for your individual condition, so you end up looking happy and well-rested. You’ll be able to express yourself physically without having to worry about making unintentional frowns and facial grimaces.

Reducing Wrinkles with Hyaluronic Acid FillersHyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in young, healthy skin. As you get older, sun damage, genetics, and other factors cause your skin to lose hyaluronic acid, making it look wrinkled and worn out. Because hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, hyaluronic acid fillers are a popular and effective way to eliminate facial wrinkles and restore your skin. The most popular brands of hyaluronic acid fillers are: BELOTERO ®, Juvéderm, and Restylane.
What is BELOTERO ®?
BELOTERO is an injectable filler that helps smooth out small wrinkles from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth.
BELOTERO is often used to complement other injectables, like Restylane, Radiesse, and Juvederm, which are used at different skin layers. Before beginning treatments with BELOTERO, Dr. Takowsky will assess your unique facial structure and goals for a successful, natural-looking treatment plan.
Benefits of BELOTERO ® Filler
- Feels natural to the touch
- Allows natural facial expressions and movements
- Quick and convenient with instantly noticeable results
- Little to no recovery time
What is Juvederm?Like BELOTERO, Juvéderm is a facial filler made from hyaluronic acid gel that smoothes and fills out damaged skin. Juvéderm uses a small needle to fill out fine wrinkles, acne scars and can even augment the size and shape of your lips, when administered correctly. Dr. Gary Takowsky also uses Juvederm to lift the corners of your mouth and reduce marionette lines.
Benefits of Juvederm
Painless treatment. Juvederm treatments are often used in conjunction with lidocaine, so you can expect little pain during injections.
Immediate results. Like BELOTERO, Juvederm offers immediate natural-looking volume enhancements.
Quick procedure. You can take care of your treatment during your lunch break. Juvederm only takes about 15 minutes, and it has minimum recovery time.
Completely reversible and biodegradable. If you’re not satisfied with the end result, Juvederm is completely reversible. Since the gel is organic and biodegradable, it breaks down over time, lasting for about 6 months.
What is Restylane?Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler that restores your skin’s fullness and facial wrinkles. It’s often used for medium to extreme facial wrinkles, like the fold between your nose and lips. It’s also used in the thin dermal layers around the eye, restoring the skin in the upper eyelid and decreasing the appearance of dark circles in the lower eyelid. Restylane is an effective dermal filler for making your eyes appear less tired. Learn more about Restylane here.
Benefits of Restylane
- Low risk of complication
- Does not require allergy testing
- Lower cost than most injectables
- Lasts for 6 months or longer
What is Radiesse?Radiesse is a calcium-based injectable facial filler that can restore large areas of your face, like your cheeks or chin. Overtime, your skin loses collagen, an important protein for making your skin young and voluminous. As collagen breaks down, it can begin to look deflated, leaving unsightly facial wrinkles and lines. When you experience significant collagen loss in your cheeks, chin, or brow area, your face can begin to look hollowed out and sunken-in.
Radiesse restores your facial structure, making your face appear youthful and full. With that being said, this filler is often used in “liquid facelifts.” Because it is made from calcium and water-based gel, it is one of the most long-lasting fillers, persisting or 9 to 18 months.
