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.
Before & After Facial Dermafillers
Dr. Mabrie is a skilled injector who uses dermafillers to provide more complete facial rejuvenation. They can fill wrinkles and add volume to facial features that have thinned through the aging process. They can also refine facial structure for a look that is attractively contoured, even for those who do not have any age-related concerns. Dr. Mabrie is able to achieve improvement with:
- Brow/forehead dermafillers
- Eye dermafillers
- Nose dermafillers
- Cheek dermafillers
- Nasolabial fold dermafillers
- Lip dermafillers
- Chin dermafillers
Dermafillers aren't your only option for facial rejuvenation. Dr. Mabrie may use BOTOX® Cosmetic instead of (or in addition to) dermafillers in San Francisco. BOTOX is an excellent option for reducing dynamic wrinkles, those caused by movement of facial muscles over time. The areas most commonly treated with BOTOX are crow's feet and frown lines.
Choose a Skilled Injector
Dr. Mabrie has long recognized the potential of these innovative non-surgical treatments. His unique understanding of facial anatomy, developed through outstanding training and experience as a facial plastic surgeon, enables him to make the most of dermafillers, using them as a versatile tool for facial sculpting as well as rejuvenation. He performs every injection himself, so every patient receives the ultimate level of care.
For individuals who choose it, Dr. Mabrie offers a unique microcannula injection technique that helps to reduce facial bruising and swelling. The microcannula technique allows for gentler application with reduced aesthetic side effects following treatment. Dr. Mabrie's skill as an injector has led DermaSculpt®, the maker of the microcannula, to choose him to instruct other practitioners in its use.
