Dermafillers & BOTOX® Cosmetic

Email this Page Print This Page

Facial dermafillers represent a dramatic shift in the practice of facial plastic surgery. With dermafillers, a hospital/surgery center has been replaced with a comfortable in-office setting and a scalpel has been replaced with a tiny needle. Without a single incision, dermafillers can reduce wrinkles and folds. And now, in the hands of a skilled surgeon like Dr. David Mabrie, dermafillers can also sculpt and contour facial features for a look that is balanced and beautiful, not just youthful.

What Are Facial Dermafillers?

Dermafillers are injectable treatments made with substances that plump up and renew the skin. These substances are already naturally found in your body. The filler material is gradually and harmlessly absorbed, so results are not permanent. However, treatment is repeatable to ensure long-lasting improvement. There are many FDA-approved dermafillers to choose from; Dr. Mabrie offers RADIESSE®, JUVÉDERM®, and Restylane® in San Francisco and Pinole.
