“Wow what an amazing experience My skin is absolutely glowing. I heard about this place from a lady at my yoga studio who comes here. She raves about this location so I decided to take a two hour drive north to see for myself. I will definitely be back! The location is clean, lots of parking, plenty of space, and staff was very friendly. … I was able to leave the clinic and go straight to dinner. My skin looked and felt amazing. These guys really know what they are doing. Dr. Riboni, Scott and Diana at Shonan were all-time stellar with their knowledge of all things laser vs photofacial rejuvenation, settings, do’s and don’ts and time between treatment. I Highly recommend.” –Jennifer G, Huntington Beach
LIFT IT. SMOOTH IT. PLUMP IT.
Take advantage of this outstanding savings opportunity.
Dermal fillers are injected just beneath the skin’s surface to soften lines, wrinkles, fill in deficits, repair scars, replace volume loss, plump cheek and lips. They are made of components already present in your body, or synthetics that can safely be used in the body.
Benefits and What to Expect
By restoring volume to sunken cheeks or temples, dermal fillers can enhance the vitality of a face and its features. They can smooth out acne scars as well as creases, wrinkles, and tired-looking areas of the face.
Frequently Asked Questions
Many first-timers find the results they like with Hyaluronic Acid (HA) or Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) dermal fillers. The effects of both are temporary, typically lasting 6 to 12 months.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural part of the body, already present in your skin to keep it plump and hydrated. Over the 6-12 months after the procedure, HA is naturally absorbed into the body.
CaHA is a little stronger, for deep lines and wrinkles. It’s calcium-based, and naturally found in our bones. Injected through a gel, it provides rejuvenating effects than may last about a year. It is thought to stimulate the body’s own collagen production.
To maintain your results, schedule later treatments with your provider as needed.
First, do not expect the preparation and recovery time needed for surgery. Dermal filler injections are non-surgical.
Begin with a consultation. Here, you will meet your surgeon or physician assistant. You’ll discuss what you’d like to achieve, and any concerns you may have.
Then, the treatment takes place. It can usually happen in just one office visit. Expect the procedure to smooth out wrinkles and lines, enhancing the contours of your face or hands. Most people notice results immediately.
Certain HA fillers do last longer. For example, Juvéderm’s VOLUMA lasts more than 18 months. But its use is restricted to certain facial areas, mainly the cheeks.
Synthetic fillers are popular with people who have tried dermal fillers, and wish to commit to long-term results that last beyond two years. Ready to commit to several years? Synthetic fillers can last that long because the body does not immediately go to work absorbing them.
Poly-L-lactic acid works well with the body and is biodegradable. Dissolvable stitches are a well-known example of this material. Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) is also a common medical substance. When used in a dermal filler, it stays under the skin, providing continued support. Plus, both of these synthetic fillers boost your skin’s natural collagen replacement capacity. This effect helps firm up wrinkled skin and smooth out creases.
