Our Injectable Filler Options
Injectable fillers can instantly restore a more youthful appearance to your face without plastic surgery near Los Gatos. Dr. Lepore offers the following fillers, in addition to a variety of skin care treatments, which temporarily rejuvenate your facial appearance:
- Restylane®, Perlane®, and JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel smooth out and fill in wrinkles or plump and sculpt lips. These fillers are made with hylauronic acid, a natural substance that gives the skin its fullness. In addition to increasing volume, it attracts and binds water molecules in the skin to provide additional firmness. Improvements last about 6 to 9 months.
- Radiesse®, a heavier filler, effectively treats severe wrinkles and deep creases, and even can be used to smooth over recessed scars. It also has been shown to increase natural collagen production, making your skin look firmer and more youthful. This long-lasting filler creates improvements that can endure for over 2 years.
- Collagen is one of the original injectable fillers. Because collagen can cause allergic reactions, a skin test is required beforehand. The majority of our patients now choose synthetic fillers over collagen.
Many patients achieve more complete, longer lasting results by combining one of our injectable fillers with BOTOX® Cosmetic. During your consultation, we will help you determine which treatment will give you the best results as they all have unique properties and benefits.
What to Expect
Using a fine needle, our fillers are injected directly into the wrinkles or lips in a quick office procedure that takes less than an hour. You may experience some minor swelling and bruising immediately after your treatment, but it will usually disappear within 1 to 2 days. You can immediately resume your normal daily activities, although you should avoid exposure to heat, sun, and strenuous exercise for the first couple of days.
