Facial Dermal Fillers in Burlingame, Millbrae, and San Mateo

Among the fastest growing areas in skin care enhancement treatments are the injectable facial fillers. The reason behind this is simple and easy. The dermal fillers or wrinkle fillers are FDA-approved medical fillers that can make the temporary look of a surgical procedure in a shorter timeframe and more convenient process and affordable treatment.*

From the name itself, facial fillers, they create skin replacements that were lost due to wrinkles. The loss of collagen and fluid makes the skin thinner. During a person’s young years, the skin is kept plump from hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that entrances and binds the skin to the body’s water. Hence, the cosmetic injectable fillers contain hyaluronic acid that when injected into the skin will fill out wrinkled skin that has been caused by depressions and natural aging.*

With the development of choices for facial fillers, we can choose the best for particular skin problems and long-term results. Over time, there have been various facial fillers that came to exist. Skinlastiq prefers to categorize them by their typical usages. Apart from this, dermal fillers can be employed to cure three conditions, and they are listed below.*

  • The loss in facial volume. *
  • The folds and crevasses or holes in facial profile. *
  • The superficial fine lines. *

Juvéderm®

One of the most popular dermal fillers available on the market today is the Juvederm. The latter has a Hyaluronic Acid ingredient that can give a consistent, enhanced appeal of static facial wrinkles. It can also replace lost facial volume throughout the cheeks and jawline. The most usual areas cured by Juvederm include the marionette lines and the nasolabial folds.*

Restylane®

Restylane® is the first dermal filler in the cosmetic industry to produce an injectable hyaluronic acid that is non-animal-based, but instead, the same hyaluronic acid found naturally in the human body. Restylane® treatments reverse the loss of facial volume and restore fullness for long lasting results up to one year. Due to Restylane’s unique composition, allergy testing is not required before receiving this treatment. Restylane® treatments reverse the loss of facial volume and restore fullness.*

Restylane® Refyne

As skin loses elasticity with age, the lines that run from the sides of your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corner of your mouth toward the chin appear more noticeable. Restylane Refyne helps correct these lines for a more natural look to your face. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Refyne is also designed to help support your natural expression—for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you’re smiling, frowning and even puckering up.*

Restylane® Defyne

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and the lines that run from the sides of the nose toward the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corner of your mouth toward the chin become more pronounced. Restylane Defyne corrects these deepened lines. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Defyne is also designed to help support your facial expressions—for natural-looking results that help maintain your natural movement. *

Dermal Fillers are a safe and efficient method for restoring the loss of facial volume, transforming the contours of the face, plumping thin lips, and banishing the appearance of wrinkles. Facial fillers are non-surgical and work by injecting a serum directly into the targeted area of correction. The most common areas include the hands, neck, and face. Not only do injectable fillers make skin immediately appear firmer, smoother and years younger, but they carry many risks and do not require a recovery period. No wonder these fillers are among the most popular treatments in the industry!*

Who is a Candidate for Dermal Filler Injection?

Facial Dermal fillers are relevantly safe, and people who have significant concerns regarding volume loss and wrinkles due age-related issues as well as thin lips with inferior contour are ideal candidates for the treatment. With this being said, it is also a must that candidates are healthy adults with reasonable and attainable expectations of the treatment. The candidacy of an individual is revealed during the consultation. *

How Will the Procedure Go?

The procedure is direct. The majority the patients who went through this procedure did not require any anesthesia. However, a topical or local numbing agent may be used if needed to proceed with the treatment and make it more comfortable. *

We will make use of a fine needle to gently inject the chosen dermal filler into the face that takes care of contouring the treated areas according to the patient’s preference. When the process has gone through completely, the treatment is done. There will be no bandages or stitches needed. After the completion of the procedure, the patient is expected to return home shortly. *

What Is The Recovery Process?

There is no recuperation process that patients who underwent the procedure need to learn. This procedure is non-invasive. Hence, there is no recuperating period or process needed. After the treatment, the patients can immediately resume and continue normal activities immediately. *

The minor side effects of this treatment can be related to the injection process itself that may include bruising, swelling, and redness of the injection’s site. This circumstance is true, especially for lip augmentation. Nonetheless, these side effects should weaken within a few days and will not pose any risk to the patients. *
