At our boutique practice in San Jose, dermal fillers are one of the most popular non-surgical treatments that we offer. Wrinkles and deep lines are only part of the story when it comes to aging. Our faces lose volume in our cheeks, jawline, forehead, lips, and temples. Fillers can also be used for facial contouring, such as non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Many of our patients aren’t ready for invasive procedures such as a facelift, lower eyelid surgery, a lip lift, or rhinoplasty. This is why dermal fillers are so popular for Bay Area residents seeking a non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation or contouring.
With over 1 million people in the US getting fillers every year, they’ve become a leading solution for antiaging and achieving a more balanced facial harmony. Dermal fillers can achieve excellent results for most patients looking to add volume to certain areas of their face or just provide a more youthful glow.
Our team strives to deliver the best dermal fillers in San Jose, while always placing patient saftey, communication, and satisfaction as top priorities.
What are Dermal Fillers?
At our Bay Area practice, we offer a number of different fillers, which each offers unique advantages for certain patients. The versatility is needed to treat lines and wrinkles at various depths. Most fillers used these days use hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance found in your body. Since it’s not made using animal sources, allergy testing isn’t needed prior to your treatment. Other, heavier, fillers use a compound called Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) that’s found naturally in bones.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
We’ve all experienced the effects of aging. As we get older, we have thinner skin that looks less plump and smooth than it did when we were younger. As one of the leading plastic surgery and medical spa practices in San Jose, we’ve had the pleasure of seeing thousands of patients over the years. Below, we’ve included the best candidates for dermal fillers:
- Men and women are both candidates for facial fillers
- We see patients of all ages. Typically, patients start to come to us in their early 30s
- Many candidates want to soften their nasolabial folds (the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth)
- Some candidates want to increase the volume in their cheeks
- Many candidates come to us wanting to change the shape of their noses using fillers
- Many candidates want more volume in their lips
*We do ask that candidates have realistic expectations on what dermal fillers can and cannot do.
What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

- You can add volume to different areas of your face

What Should I Expect?
Filler injections are quick in-office treatments that can be done in less than 30 minutes in many cases. Our team will assess your skin tone and listen to your cosmetic goals, then map specific points for the injections based on those goals. After completing the injections you will be offered an ice pack to relieve any minor discomfort. Swelling, redness, and sometimes minor bruising are typical reactions.
We don’t recommend getting injections before important social or professional events because certain areas of the face are more prone to bruising than others.
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty using dermal fillers has become one of our most popular non-invasive facial contouring procedures. Many of our patients are unhappy with the shape or size of their noses but aren’t ready for surgery. This can be a less invasive option and can still provide exceptional results. To learn more about the procedure, please view our full page on non-surgical rhinoplasty.
One of the most common areas to get dermal fillers is in the lips. Many of our patients want more full lips, but because of aging or genetics, they have a very thin upper lip. Fillers are a fantastic solution that helps give our patients the lips they’ve always dreamed of. The treatment can be done in under 30 minutes and the results are almost instantaneous, giving our patients a beautiful smile and more self-confidence!
