Call us today to schedule your confidential Palto Alto consultation and find out how dermal fillers can revitalize your appearance and your total well being.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are compounds that can be used in a variety of ways to accomplish many of the same goals as plastic surgery, but without the higher risks, longer downtimes, incisions, scarring, or anesthesia.

Facial fillers can fill in depressions in the skin, reshape facial contours, add volume and definition, thicken and plump the lips, or they can help smooth away wrinkles, fine lines, creases and folds. They are highly versatile and can be used in combination with one another to create a non-surgical facelift, a non-surgical eyelid lift, or a non-surgical rhinoplasty.

What aredermal fillers made of?

Most facial fillers are made with hyaluronic acid. HA is a substance found naturally in the human body, and it is responsible for the skin’s moisture, suppleness and resilience. As we age, our supply of HA dwindles, initiating the need for a cosmetic intervention. Facial filler results last anywhere from a few months to a few years.

What are the different fillers?


Juvederm is a delicate filler perfect for accomplishing the subtle, natural-looking results most clients desire. It helps age-proof the entire mouth area, one of the first parts of the face to show signs of aging.

Sculptra utilizes poly-L-lactic acid to volumize and plump depleted facial contours. Wrinkles, folds, creases and fine lines are beautifully minimized. Sculptra can be used in the cheeks, chin, midface and the temples.

Radiesse is a great tool in the anti-aging arsenal. It helps reduce wrinkles, fine lines and nasolabial folds. Calcium based microbeads stimulate the body’s collagen response, and over time, the skin takes on a more radiant, hydrated and luminous appearance.

Restylane provides natural-looking improvements in the aging face, with several different unique formulations to address the folds and lines around the mouth, the lips, the midface, the cheeks and the jawline. Restylane is one of the oldest fillers on the market with trusted results and millions of satisfied clients.

Vollure is an HA filler that reduces the appearance of more severe facial folds and lines around the mouth and nose (many times called parentheses). Vollure produces subtle and long-lasting results for up to 18 months.


Volbella is an HA filler just like Juvederm and Voluma, but its unique properties make it ideal in treating both the fine lines around your mouth as well as bringing natural fullness to the lips. Volbella is an ultra-smooth gel, delivering a natural look and feel to the lip area without swelling.


Voluma is the first filler formulated with FDA approved lidocaine to restore age-related volume changes in the cheeks. Unlike other fillers commonly used to treat the midface, Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. HA fillers are made from long chains of sugars that occur naturally in the skin. Voluma uniquely cross-links HA through a process called Vycross, helping to provide an excellent lifted look. This special cross-linking also helps to avoid degradation, making Voluma last almost twice as long as other fillers --sometimes up to 2 years!

FAQs about Palo Alto dermal fillers

How does it work?

Fillers/injectables are made up of natural acids, synthetic acids, and calcium. They are injected into select facial lines to add volume, correct contours, and minimize wrinkles. Fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on the filler you chose.

What can I expect during the treatment?

Getting fillers is super simple. They are injected into the targeted area beneath the skin using a small needle. You may experience some swelling or minor bruising, but it’ll fade within a few days. Fillers can last from 6 months to several years!

What are the results?

Fillers are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, contour the face, increase volume, and plump your lips. You will see an immediate youthful fullness in area injected.

Is it safe?

Fillers are completely safe! There is no downtime at all, and you can resume your normal day right away. You'll likely experience some swelling or a little bit of bruising, but it should fade within a few days.
