WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?

The use of injectable fillers has become one of the most requested minimally invasive treatments for facial aging. Dermal fillers have a number of uses in the face. They can be used to plump lips, soften wrinkles and folds, fill in under-eye hollows, add structure to the cheeks or jawline and more. Dr. Boudreault and his team of nurses are some of the most sought after injection specialists in the San Francisco Bay Area.

WHAT ARE HYALURONIC ACID FILLERS?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers are used most frequently in the United States. Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide found naturally in connective tissues of the body. They are deemed semi-permanent, meaning they will remain in the body for anywhere between three months to two years. HA fillers are also reversible, which adds to their appeal.

WHERE ARE DERMAL FILLERS INJECTED?

The most popular brands of dermal fillers in the U.S. are Juvederm® and Restylane®. Each of these fillers has unique characteristics that influence the location(s) where they are injected, what level they should be injected into the skin and their longevity after injection. The use of dermal fillers extends beyond regions of the face and can be used on the buttocks to soften or minimize the appearance of cellulite and even in the penis for male enhancement.

WHY DO WE USE FILLERS FOR ANTI-AGING?

The process of aging, although different for each person, tends to be methodic in its ultimate progression. As we age, we begin to lose fat in our face, which leads to decreased volume. We also lose collagen and elastin within the skin. Over time, youthful facial contours such as accentuated full cheeks, rounded temples, and plump lips begin to flatten or hollow out. Dermal fillers have become an excellent way to replenish lost facial volume.

WHAT DERMAL FILLERS DO YOU USE AT ILLUMINATE?

The creation of new hyaluronic fillers is constant, and one is not superior to any other. Each filler has a different viscosity and ability to retain shape, which allows our practitioners to discuss numerous treatment possibilities with our patients. The dermal fillers that are used most often in our practice are the Juvéderm® and Restylane® family of products.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM TREATMENT?

Patients should expect to see immediate improvement from dermal filler treatment.* This is followed by a period of swelling which can last anywhere from 3-5 days. Bruising is also not uncommon and can last for up to a week. Full correction from dermal filler treatment will be achieved by around two weeks.*

HOW LONG WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM MY DERMAL FILLER?

Dermal fillers last a long time, so you will continue to enjoy your look for quite a while. While some people need a follow-up treatment in six months, others can see their dermal fillers lasting for as much as two years.*

HOW MUCH DO DERMAL FILLERS COST?

While a typical HA injection costs around $750, your individual cost may vary depending upon the type of injectable that is used as well as the number of syringes you may need to achieve full correction of the treated area. If you would like to explore the option of paying for your dermal filler injections over time, we can recommend options such as CareCredit or Alphaeon for your convenience. Or, many of our patients also choose to apply for credit cards with longer terms at 0% interest.
