Dermal fillers are injectable gel-like solutions, often based on hyaluronic acid (HA). This is a naturally-occurring substance in your body that hydrates, adds volume, depth, and elasticity to your skin. Dr. Ataii has achieved Diamond Status with Allergan, the maker of Juvederm and many other dermal fillers, putting him in the top 250 providers nationwide.

Why use dermal fillers? 

As we age, our bodies stop producing as much hyaluronic acid, and this is what causes our skin to lose volume and form wrinkles. Dermal fillers replace lost volume, and this fills wrinkles, crow’s feet, lines and creases, and causes your skin to appear tighter, taut, and defined. The results of dermal fillers depend on which fillers you choose and where the treatment area is, but they generally last from about nine months to two years.

Dermal filler treatments take less than twenty minutes and require no scars, no incisions, no downtime and very little, if any, recovery time. Dermal fillers earned the nickname “the lunchtime lift” because of how quickly clients can be in and out of the office, with outstanding benefits. 

Benefits of dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are incredibly popular because they provide so many benefits, from short treatment time to rejuvenated, youthful-looking skin. Some of the benefits of dermal fillers in San Diego at Laser Cliniqúe include:

  • Smooth wrinkles, lines, and creases
  • Achieve contoured and defined facial features
  • Fill hollows under your eyes
  • Lift the drooping corners of your mouth
  • Smooth and correct nasolabial folds
  • Plump and smooth the lips
  • Boost self-confidence
  • Enjoy a more youthful-looking aesthetic
  • Safe and non-invasive
  • Short, easy treatment
  • No downtime
  • Very short, if any, recovery time needed
  • Can be used as part of non-surgical rhinoplasty, facelift, or blepharoplasty

Dermal fillers vs Botox

Dermal fillers are designed to replenish lost facial volume and provide a youthful, supple appearance. Because sagging skin, wrinkles and creases are made worse by lost facial volume, the volume that dermal fillers provide reverses this effect by smoothing wrinkles away, firming sagging skin, and sculpting and refining your features.

Botox is a wrinkle relaxer that is specifically designed to temporarily relax the contracted muscles in your face which are causing the wrinkles to remain on your skin. We also offer Dysport, Jeuveau and Xeomin, which are effective alternatives to Botox. Each of these wrinkle relaxers has its own benefits, and they all provide a smoother, more youthful appearance. However, they do not replace lost facial volume. 

A dermal filler treatment can also be combined with a wrinkle relaxer treatment to achieve even more outstanding results. This is done during a liquid facelift or when you are looking for the most highly dramatic, effective and youthful-looking results. 

Is there any recovery time after dermal fillers?

While there’s no downtime to worry about after dermal fillers, there may be a couple of days of minor swelling and bruising, or tenderness at the injection sites. These side effects are very short-lived with most fillers, and should disappear within a few days. Do avoid strenuous exercise and protect your skin from the sun for a couple of days.

What makes these fillers so unique is that they treat these deeper, dynamic wrinkles without causing the face to appear stiff or unnatural.

Radiesse is not based on HA, but is instead made with tiny spheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, a naturally-occuring substance in the body. Radiesse also helps to stimulate collagen production. Radiesse provides volume and reduces wrinkles and folds, and provides a longer-lasting improvement because of the increased collagen that supports the structure of the skin over time.

Sculptra »

Sculptra is made from synthetic poly-L-lactic acid, which is naturally produced by the body, Sculptra diminishes facial creases and provides volume and is designed to increase the skin’s collagen production. Sculptra is provided over a series of three treatment sessions, each one triggering more and more of a boost of collagen. The results last for two years.

Bellafill »

Billafill is formulated with tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. These create a scaffold upon which collagen, your skin’s natural firming, plumping substance, develops. Your skin is rebuilt and supported from the inside. With Bellafill, your skin will continue to improve over a year, and the results last for five years.
