Dermal Fillers & BOTOX® Cosmetic

Email this Page Print This Page

Facial dermal fillers represent a dramatic shift in the practice of facial plastic surgery. With dermal fillers, 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, dermal fillers can reduce wrinkles and folds. And now, in the hands of a skilled surgeon like Dr. David Mabrie, derma fillers can also sculpt and contour facial features for a look that is balanced and beautiful, not just youthful.

What Are Facial Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers 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 dermal fillers to choose from; Dr. Mabrie offers RADIESSE®, JUVÉDERM®, and Restylane® in San Francisco and Pinole.
