Filler in Walnut Creek

Fillers in general are able to add volume to the face and skin in order to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. They can be used to enhance the lips, cheeks, jawline, chin, and nose. 

Fillers are most commonly made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is a temporary filler and lasts for various durations depending on the location within your body. In general, filler placed in areas that don’t move much will last longer. Filler used under the eyes for under eye “bags” may last 12 months while lip filler may last 4-6 months

Sculptra is a longer lasting, temporary filler that is made of poly-L-lactic acid and works slightly differently than HA. Sculptra interacts with your body to create new collagen and can be used in the face to add volume or even into the buttocks for a non-surgical buttock augmentation. Unlike HA, the volume is not seen immediately. It can take up to 12 weeks for the body to create the new collagen that provides the desired volume. The results can last up to 2 years. 

We look forward to working with you to develop a plan that will ensure durable, natural, volume.
