There are many types of fillers. At Redwood Empire Dermatology, the team uses:
Juvéderm is a line of fillers that contain a hyaluronic acid (HA) gel. HA is a substance naturally found in your skin that helps your skin retain moisture. Redwood Empire Dermatology uses Juvéderm fillers to fill in facial lines and folds, enhance cheeks, and enhance lips.
Restylane is a line of fillers that also contains hyaluronic acid. Redwood Empire Dermatology uses Restylane fillers to fill in facial lines and folds, enhance cheeks, minimize under eye shadows and enhance lips.
Belotero Balance is another hyaluronic acid filler that the team at Redwood Empire Dermatology uses to treat vertical lip lines and to fill in fine lines around the mouth and on the cheeks.
The skilled cosmetic dermatologists at Redwood Empire Dermatology customize your filler injection plan to match your needs. This includes dermal filler type and placement of the injection. They review the details of your plan at your consultation, so you know what to expect.
First, they clean your skin with an antibacterial agent. Then, they carefully inject the filler under your skin, massaging and injecting, until they get the desired look.
You may feel some discomfort during your injections. To reduce discomfort, the team may apply a numbing lotion to your skin before starting your session, and some fillers contain lidocaine.
You can expect immediate results following filler injections at Redwood Empire Dermatology. You may have some redness, swelling, or bruising at the site of the injections, but you can use cold packs and topical creams to reduce these side effects.
Results last six or more months. Some fillers may provide results that last up to two years.
