Dermal Filler Specialists San Diego
The hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane will replace lost volume to the structure of the face making it more youthful. Hyaluronic acid is found throughout our body, but it is particularly vital to skin and joints.
In the normal aging process, the loss of volume in the face and the effects of gravity, lead to a downward pull to the skin of the face, creating a tired or scowling look. Often people complain of a downward turn, jowls, and nasolabial folds of the mouth. The hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers will fill up the lost volume to the face.
Dermal Filler Specialists San Diego will reduce or get rid of wrinkles, treat lip wrinkles and improve thinning lips. Dermal fillers will also raise brows and give volume to chin or cheekbones. Every filler is made up of different substances designed for different areas and how long they last is also different.
Dermal fillers are gels made up of sugars that are naturally found in our body, which can be broken down and assimilated back into the body. These fillers have received FDA approval for the treatment of moderate to severe folds and wrinkles. In addition to the face, fillers add volume to various other areas of the body such as breasts, labia, and hands. Dermal fillers’ benefits consist of the decrease in the appearance of wrinkles and providing a smoother, younger appearance. Depending on what product is used, the treatments could last somewhere between 6 to 24 months. The outcomes are natural looking, and facial expression is not affected.
At Allurant Aesthetics, Dermal Filler Specialists San Diego, we offer 2 of the best and safest dermal fillers on the market; Juvederm and Restylane. We will evaluate your needs and help you choose the best dermal filler that is right for you.
JUVÉDERM® is the most renowned dermal filler in the industry. It is made from hyaluronic acid (HA) (a natural sugar found in our body). Once injected into the skin, Juvederm combines itself with water to restore lost volume. Juvederm will instantly smooth out your wrinkles and lines, erase unwanted expression lines, and enhance your lips, cheeks, brows, jawline, etc. The result is instant, long lasting and natural looking. JUVÉDERM ® uses a patented technology to create a soft and smooth gel that provides a smooth natural feel and look.
There is no need for pretesting, but patients should take a few precautions before getting JUVÉDERM ® treatment. To avoid increased risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection area, patients should stay away from vitamin E and any anti-inflammatory medication for 5 days prior to treatment.

Restylane® is a natural dermal filler that brings back volume to your skin and eliminates facial wrinkles and folds. At Allurant Aesthetics, Restylane is the preferred filler used by our Dermal Filler Specialists San Diego. Restylane is made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid and is one of the safest Dermal fillers on the market. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally exists in our body. It supplies fullness and moisture to our skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is a clear gel called NASHA (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid). NASHA is biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid and completely biodegradable. Restylane delivers longer lasting results compared to traditional collagen (typically, it lasts twice as long). There is no need for pretesting, but patients should take a few precautions before getting Restylane treatment. To avoid increased risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection area, patients should stay away from vitamin E and any anti-inflammatory medication. Restylane® has 2 main products; Restylane® Silk and Restylane® Lyft:
As we get older, our lips start thinning and losing shape and vertical lines start forming around our lips. Restylane® Silk is the only FDA-approved dermal filler that is specifically made for the treatment of the lines around the lips and skin around the mouth. Restylane® Silk is made of smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products. It was made specifically to create natural-looking results in the areas of mouth and lips. This unique gel formula together with an ultrafine needle designed for precision, offer you softer, more natural results – for a more natural-looking smile.
Restylane® Lyft, also known as Perlane-L®, is a hyaluronic acid gel filler used to increase volume and treat lines and wrinkles in the facial skin. Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to bring fullness to the cheeks and mid-face region, resulting in a natural-looking, and more youthful appearance.
